The Cardinals pulled Adams from his Triple-A game in Memphis in the fourth inning nearly immediately after Lance Berkman's knee injury Saturday night, the Cardinals' official site reports.
Recommendation: Adams has been considered the Cardinals' first baseman of the future, but for the notion that Allen Craig will need to play first base to avoid injury in the field. He and Matt Carpenter could share time at first base if Berkman needs to go on the DL.
if Berkman's injury was bad enough to where he needed to go on the DL again, what is more likely. Craig/Carpenter at 1B, or Matt Adams called up? why would they pull Carpenter from his minor league game in the 4th inning right after Berkman's injury if he was not the one to come up? and I would think if your calling up a prospect like Adams it's not to sit him on the bench and occupy a roster spot.
