Adams sports a .271 average with 56 homers in 486 career major league games, but was deemed expendable by St. Louis with Matt Carpenter now the everyday first baseman.

Mar. 18 2:04 PM PT3:04 PM MT4:04 PM CT5:04 PM ET17:04 ET21:04 GMT5:04 2:04 PM MST4:04 PM EST4:34 PM VEN1:04 UAE (+1)3:04 PM CT-Instead of him fielding throws at first base, manager Mike Matheny asked Adams to go to a practice diamond Saturday with St. Louis outfielders to listen to some tips from former Cardinals great Willie McGee.
Analysis: Such an experience would've been hard to imagine before Adams' offseason conditioning and nutrition program helped him lose 30 pounds and reshape his body. The past couple seasons he entered camp in a battle for the first base spot that ultimately resulted in a platoon. This spring, with left-handed hitting Matt Carpenter moving from first to third, Adams, who also hits from the left side, arrived in camp searching for a role.
