St. Louis Cardinals: Matt Adams Slims Down For Success

In order to lose weight, Matt Adams focused on three things: he bettered his diet, he began to do Pilates, and he ran. The hope behind this for Adams is to create more consistency at the plate. The 2016 St. Louis Cardinals season proved not so great for Adams, as he hit .249. For more on the weight loss, Derrick Goold wrote and article in the St. Louis Post Dispatch.

Adams is not the first player in the past few years to try out weight loss. In recent memory, CC Sabathia and Pablo Sandoval both thought that weight loss would benefit their careers.
