LEADING OFF: Adams set to join Braves, Yankees-Rays reset

He is in Sunday's lineup batting fifth and is expected to see the majority of at bats in place of Freddie Freeman who is out an estimated 10-weeks due to a fractured wrist.

"I think our ownership really stepped forward here to take on money and get a really good player", Coppolella said.

Matt Adams heads to Atlanta, as the Braves acquire a first baseman. A 17-22 record has them seven games back of the Washington Nationals though, and even at this fairly early stage the Braves don't look like a serious Wild Card contender.

Freeman was leading the majors in slugging percentage when he was hurt, hitting.341 with 14 home runs. Still, he was a productive bench bat for the Cardinals this year, hitting.292/.340/.396 (96 OPS+) with a homer over 53 plate appearances.

State's Dennis Smith or the 6'5" French product, Frank Ntilikina but with Jackson at the helm, everything is in play these days. Fultz, a point guard, would have to battle for minutes behind Isaiah Thomas and Marcus Smart next season.

The 26-year-old Burgos was designated for assignment by the Diamondbacks this week after posting a 6.23 ERA at Triple-A Reno this season. In six major-league seasons, he has a.271 career average with 56 home runs and 217 RBIs.

Though Adams clearly fits in as a nice temporary replacement, Freeman is one of the best first basemen in the game and can obviously be expected to reclaim the position upon his return. The Braves had signed James Loney to a minor league contact as insurance.

He is batting.275 with 13 doubles, one home run and 15 RBI in 35 games for Single-A Rome this season. He has spent much of the time on the bench for the Cardinals in the last few years after Matt Carpenter was converted into a first baseman.

Burgos had a 5.27 ERA in 73 games with Arizona in the 2015-16 seasons.
