The Atlanta Braves have found a short-term replacement for the injured Freddie Freeman at first base.

On Saturday, the St. Louis Cardinals' first baseman was traded - along with cash - to the Atlanta Braves for minor league infielder Juan Yepez, a 19-year-old prospect who's now hitting.275 in Class A ball. When today's game came back from commercial, Skip Caray and Joe Simpson told us that the Braves had just acquire Matt Adams and cash from the St Louis Cardinals for minor league infield Juan Yepez. Except the Braves refused to jump at the first ask.or the second, third. The Cards hope that he can add power as he matures.

From 2014 to 2016, Adams also graded out as a plus defensive player at first with 14 defensive runs saved in more than 2,000 innings played. "I think it sends a message to our fans that, look, we said we wanted to be an exciting club this year". A move involving the 28-year-old Adams had been speculated since spring training after Matt Carpenter was picked to start at first base.

The Slippery Rock graduate in his sixth Major League season, was hitting.292 with one home run and seven RBIs in 31 games for the Cardinals.

The Braves optioned infielder Johan Camargo to Triple-A Gwinnett to clear a roster spot for Adams. Roe was placed on the 10-day DL with a right lat strain on April 12.

His season actually never really has got going.
