RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Adams had a very good 2013 in limited playing time, slamming 17 home runs and 14 doubles in just 319 plate appearances. His BABIP (.337) was somewhat high, meaning his .284 average could fall with a larger sample size, but Adams still makes plenty of hard contact, as evidenced by his .220 ISO. The power is here for Adams to be a 30-homer bat, but it might not happen in 2014, as his HR/FB (21.8%) may not be completely sustainable. That being said, it appears Allen Craig will play primarily in right field this season following the departure of Carlos Beltran, which should result in a significant increase in opportunities for Adams compared to last season. As the Cardinals' primary first baseman, Adams will have a good chance to crack the 500 at-bat plateau.

2013

The various injuries suffered by Lance Berkman gave Adams a one-month opportunity to show he belonged in the majors. Results were mixed, as he started out strong (hitting .296 in his first 16 games) before the league caught up with him. At least 13 RBI in a 27-game stint was helpful. Adams tore up the minors since Day 1, hitting .318 with 82 home runs in 1,430 at-bats in his four-year career. Unfortunately, he can't really play anywhere besides first base. While that's not as big of an issue with Albert Pujols and Lance Berkman gone, the Cardinals could opt to give the job to Allen Craig or sign a big-name veteran in the offseason. Adams will probably have to wait his turn again.

2012

Adams was pretty good in 2010, but he broke out in a big way playing for Double-A Springfield last year, belting 32 home runs and driving in 101 runs. He doesn't possess much speed, but if he can go 30-100-.300 every year, he won't have to. With Albert Pujols now in Anaheim, we could see Adams manning first base in St. Louis as early as this summer. Now 23, he'll likely head to Triple-A to begin the season while Lance Berkman takes on the everyday job in Pujols' absence.
