Matt “Patch” Adams – St. Louis Cardinals Future 1st Baseman

Matt Adams of the St. Louis Cardinals belts a hit in Spring Traning

It was a loss that will undeniably affect the St. Louis Cardinals. Losing one of the best first basemen that baseball has ever seen.  But there is hope! Matt “Patch” Adams is the future of the position for the Cardinals.  He is making the most of his invitation to spring training.

Matt Adams was the Cardinals minor league player of year last season.  One of his biggest assets is his offensive prowess.  He hit over 30 home runs last season playing on the Cardinals AA team.

Matt’s highlights of spring training so far include a grand slam, and a very respectable batting average.

If he continues to build his defensive capabilities, we may see Adams get a chance to start this season. Although it is projected he will most likely be a part of the 2013 Cardinals team.
