Adams was put on the 15-day disabled list after suffering a strained right oblique, an injury that caused him to miss several weeks during his 2011 Texas League MVP season in Springfield.

Adams was off to a torid start this season, going 13 for 34 with 3 home runs and 8 rbi, while playing in a backup role.

Springfield wraps up a short road trip at Northwest Arkansas Friday before returning to Hammons Field fort he weekend.  Adams could return to St. Louis as early as Tuesday when the Cardinals open a series in Chicago.
