Cardinals acquire Matt Adams in waiver claim

The Nationals have unloaded a pair of veteran hitters.

The way the Major League Baseball trade deadline works is that after the initial deadline passes, the revocable waivers system allows teams to still make swaps.

A tsunami of reports indicate that Matt Adams is heading to the Cardinals and Daniel Murphy to the Cubs.

The left-handed hitting Murphy, 33, would help an offense that has scored three runs or fewer in seven of their last 10 games, including four in their past four games. The Cubs have been in search of middle infield depth this season, and Murphy serves as an instant upgrade at second base.

Murphy, 33, spent nearly half the season on the disabled list but has hit.300 with a.341 on-base percentage and 15 extra-base hits since being activated in mid-June. Adams is batting.257 with 18 HR and 48 RBI in 94 games with the Nationals this season. He played with the Cardinals from 2012-17. Because the deal came after the July 31 non-waiver deadline, the Cubs had to win the claim after the Nats put Murphy on revocable waivers before a trade could be completed. Washington could also pull him back off waivers. The club entered Tuesday with a record of 62-63, 7 1/2 games out of first place in the NL East with both the Braves and Phillies ahead of them.
