Adams becomes latest key Nats player to hit IL

The Washington Nationals are down another first baseman because of injury.

Matt Adams was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday with a left shoulder injury. The move comes just seven days after starting first baseman Ryan Zimmerman was placed on the IL with plantar fasciitis in his right foot.

Adams was hurt in Saturday’s 10-8 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies when he jammed his left shoulder making a diving out on Phil Gosselin in the second inning. He was to undergo an MRI on Sunday morning.cheap nike nfl jerseys china1

Infielder Jake Noll was recalled from Triple-A Fresno in a corresponding move and started at first base in Sunday’s game against the Phillies, going 0-for-3 and committing an error in a 7-1 loss. It’s the third time he has been called up to the majors in his rookie season.cheap nike nfl jerseys wholesale

The 30-year-old Adams is hitting .250 with three home runs and 13 RBIs this season.

He joins a growing list of impact Nationals players on the injured list, including third baseman Anthony Rendon, outfielder Juan Soto, shortstop Trea Turner and Zimmerman.
