  • Angels' Jordyn Adams: Reassigned to MiLB camp

    The Angels reassigned Adams to minor-league camp Friday.

    The 23-year-old outfielder reached Double-A for the first time last season, slashing .249/.326/.359 through 236 plate appearances. He certainly turned some heads this spring with a 1.004 OPS and four steals, but there remains more for Adams to do before he's ready for Triple-A and the majors -- bringing down his 29.7 percent strikeout rate would be a good start.

  • Angels' Jordyn Adams: Moved up to Double-A

    Adams was promoted to Double-A Rocket City on Thursday.

    Adams spent the first three months of the campaign with High-A Tri-City, slashing .228/.308/.306 with zero homers, 22 RBI and 18 stolen bases over 249 plate appearances. Despite the mediocre slash line, he notably reduced his strikeout rate to 21.7 percent after finishing with an ugly 37.8 percent rate in 307 plate appearances at the same level last season. Adams has started off well in his first stint at Double-A, going 5-for-8 with a run and two RBI over his first two games.

  • Angels' Jordyn Adams: Strikeouts down at High-A

    Adams (ankle) returned to action Wednesday for High-A Tri-City, going 1-for-5 with two RBI and one steal.

    He missed a week with a minor ankle injury. Adams is hitting .381/.417/.524 with zero home runs and two steals through five games. Most importantly, he has only struck out three times in 21 at-bats after logging a 37.8 K% at this level last year. Look for him to get the bump to Double-A in the coming weeks if he keeps producing.

  • Angels' Jordyn Adams: Dealing with ankle injury

    Adams was removed from High-A Tri City's game Wednesday due to an ankle injury, Jared Tims of Talkin' Halos reports.

    Adams struggled in 71 games for Tri City last season with a .600 OPS, but he entered Wednesday's contest 7-for-16 with four RBI, four runs and a stolen base through four games this year. It's unclear if the 22-year-old will require a stint on the injured list.

  • Angels' Jordyn Adams: Enduring brutal campaign at High-A

    Through 25 games for High-A Tri-City, Adams is hitting just .186/.266/.268 with one homer, seven steals, 13 RBI and 12 runs.

    Worse yet, he's struck out 40 times in 109 plate appearances -- a 36.7 percent clip -- with observers such as FanGraphs' Brendan Gawlowski saying that he looks lost at the dish. Adams has elite speed and the tools to be a quality defender, but his power hasn't manifested as the Angels would have hoped and his hit tool is proving to be a major issue. The plus side is that he's still just 21 years old and an impressive athlete, and perhaps the lower-leg injury that sidelined him earlier this season is to blame for his timing (or lack thereof) at the plate, but unless he turns things around, he's likely to tumble out of the top 100 on most prospect lists.

  • Angels' Jordyn Adams: Activated off minor-league IL

    Adams was activated off the minor-league injured list Tuesday after being sidelined for over a month due to a lower leg injury, independent baseball writer Taylor Blake Ward reports.

    Prior to his activation, Adams hadn't played since May 6, though he didn't officially go on the injured list until May 29. He started Tuesday and went 1-for-4 in his return.

  • Angels' Jordyn Adams: Joining major-league camp

    Adams was invited to the Angels' big-league spring training camp on Thursday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    Adams has plenty of potential, but he's unlikely to be competing for an Opening Day roster spot just yet. He's played just nine games at the High-A level, so he'll presumably spend this year in the upper minors before pushing for a big-league spot next season.

  • Angels' Jordyn Adams: Part of 60-man roster

    Adams will be part of the Angels' 60-man roster.

    While seemingly unlikely to grab significant at-bats at the MLB level this season, Adams -- who is not on the 40-man roster -- will still be able to work on his development in what is looking like the absence of a minor-league season. The 20-year-old's highest league level in 2019 was High-A, but he did receive multiple promotions last year and recorded a .720 OPS across three levels.

  • Angels' Jordyn Adams: Likely to be part of player pool

    Adams is expected to be included in the Angels' 60-man player pool, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

    Adams is considered one of the organization's top prospects despite slashing a ho-hum .250/.346/.358 in Low-A ball last season. The 20-year-old has demonstrated a knack for taking a walk and has plenty of speed, and inclusion in the player pool should give him an opportunity to develop as a hitter with the minor-league season all but certain to be canceled.

  • Angels' Jordyn Adams: Moved up to High-A

    Adams was promoted to High-A Inland Empire on Sunday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    Adams, the 17th overall pick in the 2018 draft, slashed .250/.346/.358 with seven homers, 31 RBI and 12 stolen bases in 97 games with Low-A Burlington this season. His slash line jumped to .296/.424/.556 through seven games in August, leading to the promotion.

  • Angels' Jordyn Adams: Sent to Low-A

    Adams will open the year with Low-A Burlington, Jonathan Mayo of reports.

    This is a typical assignment for a 19-year-old position player who was taken in the first round of the previous year's draft, but it's noteworthy with Adams because he is still a pretty raw hitter, and this assignment should give him a challenge. Don't panic if he doesn't get off to a great start against Low-A pitchers, but if he were to have a seamless transition, that would be an excellent sign.

  • Angels' Jordyn Adams: Available for spring game

    The Angels called Adams (jaw) up from their minor-league camp to serve as a reserve outfielder in Thursday's Cactus League game against the Dodgers, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

    With two games on the docket for the Angels, the team decided to bring in some reinforcements from the minors to provide depth off the bench. Adams is expected to finish the second of the Angels' split-squad games in center field, making it safe to conclude that he's made a full recovery from the broken jaw that forced him to finish his first professional campaign in the training room. The 2018 first-round pick is expected to open the upcoming campaign in short-season ball before likely getting a look at a full-season affiliate in the second half.

  • Angels' Jordyn Adams: Sidelined with broken jaw

    Adams is currently dealing with a broken jaw, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

    Adams' jaw is wired shut, so it's safe to say he won't be getting into minor-league action for a bit. No timetable for his return has come forth, though he's expected to have the wires removed from his mouth Friday, according to Maria I. Guardado of It's also encouraging that he is able to continue working out while he's sidelined with this injury.
