Nationals' Matt Adams: Misses Opening Day roster
The Nationals informed Adams on Saturday that he won't be part of the Opening Day roster, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports.
Adams posted an .871 OPS in 19 games this spring, though he also struck out 10 times without recording a single walk. The veteran didn't fit what the Nationals wanted in a bench spot, and it remains unclear if he'll ever be able to find his way back to the majors for the first time since July 2021.... See More ...

Matt Adams: Let go by Rockies
Adams was released by the Rockies on Tuesday.
Adams has played just 22 major-league games this season, as he failed to make the Opening Day roster and made trips to the injured list for both shin and elbow issues. He did very little during his limited opportunities to suggest he deserved to stick around, as he hit just .167/.250/.194. The interest on the open market for a 32-year-old bat-only player who owns a .513 OPS over the last two seasons is likely to be muted.... See More ... See Less

Adams has yet to demonstrate much notable progress in his recovery from his right elbow strain, but manager Bud Black suggested that the 32-year-old could soon take a step forward. Black didn't rule out the possibility of Adams taking batting practice as soon as Thursday or over the weekend, when the Rockies travel to Milwaukee.
