Philipsburg’s Matt Adams is heading back to the Cardinals

Daniel Murphy

Shortly after dealing Murphy, the team also traded Matt Adams to the St. Louis Cardinals, according to Jeff Passan.

The Nationals reportedly put a number of players up for waivers on Friday, with some of them getting claimed Sunday night. In return, the Cardinals will pay what's remaining of Adams' $4 million salary for 2018, according to reports.

In the NLCS with the Mets, Murphy hit.529 with four homers and six RBI as NY swept the Cubs out of the playoffs and the infielder was named the series MVP.

For Adams, the Cardinals are sending $50,000 to Washington.

A familiar face is coming back to St. Louis! I didn't expect it to happen so soon, ' " the tweet read.

The Nationals on Tuesday took advantage of the August waiver period and parted ways with second baseman Daniel Murphy via trade with the Cubs and first baseman/outfielder Matt Adams, who was claimed and acquired by the Cardinals. Adams, 29, played in 486 games in his first stint with the Cardinals from 2012-2017. The slugger is batting.257 with 18 homers and 48 RBIs in 94 games this season. At one point, Adams was tied for fourth in the majors for most home runs. The teardown, however, apparently won't involve superstar outfielder and pending free agent Bryce Harper.
