The Cardinals have reportedly re-acquired Matt Adams from the Nationals in exchange for a bag of balls, also known as cash considerations.
Adams spent parts of his first six seasons with the Cardinals, racking up 56 homers, 271 RBI, and a .271 batting average in 486 games.
The first baseman/outfielder should provide the Cards and DFS players with a potent power bat against righties over the final few weeks of the season. In 212 at-bats versus right-handed pitching this season, Adams has 17 of his 18 homers, 42 of his 48 RBI, a .264 batting average, and a .882 OPS.
Against lefties, he's probably not going to get a ton of opportunities, and even if he does, he's not the best fit. He's batting .216 with only 1 HR and 16 RBI. His .607 OPS is even more telling.
The verdict: consider him against righties, but not lefties. It's that simple.
