Adams has done a nice job of going the other way to beat opposing teams' defensive shifts against him, and he's waiting back more on breaking pitches.

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday (ankle) left his team's game on Tuesday, Aug. 13, because of a high ankle sprain. Manager Mike Matheny reported that X-rays came up negative. Holliday is considered day-to-day. He injured the ankle when, during another player's at-bat, he attempted to retreat with a hard cut to first base after he took a few steps toward second. He stayed in the contest and reached second on a throwing error but was then replaced by a pinch runner.
Fantasy Tip: It sounds like Holliday will avoid the DL but will probably need at least a couple of days to recuperate. Matt Adams figures to benefit in terms of playing time in the short term.
