ST. LOUIS (AP) St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams could miss the rest of the season with a strained right quadriceps and will undergo surgery Friday.

After consulting with medical personnel Wednesday, the team said Adams' estimated recovery time was three to four months.

"Fingers crossed, if things go well maybe I'll be able to get back by the end of the season," Adams said after the Cardinals beat the Diamondbacks 4-3 for a three-game sweep. "It's just something that needed to be done."
