Scouting Report

A 6-foot-3, 190-pound long and athletic frame with some strength for this two-way player who really shines on the mound. The right-hander works from a slightly up-tempo delivery with rhythm, high-leg kick, and glides to the dish under control. The arm action is long and loose with a full arm-circle and fast out front with some effort from a high-3/4 slot. The fastball jumps out of Adams' hand with some downhill tilt, 86-87 mph. Slider flashes some late and sharp action with 11/5 shape, backs up at times, 72-78 mph. Changeup shows some fade 78-79 mph. With his athleticism, frame, and arm speed, Adams is a talented prospect on the mound that will only get better as he continues to dial in his command and consistency. At the dish, the right-handed hitter uses a moderate knee-knock leg kick to launch his hands on a flat path. Stayed in the pull gap with some carry in BP, barreling most balls. Posted an exit velo of 83. In the outfield, shows athletic, confident actions. Runs through throws, some accuracy, 83 mph. Runs a 7.34 60.

A 6-foot-3, long and athletic frame with plenty of room to continue to add size and strength. On the mound, works from an average tempo delivery with rhythm and an up-down-and-out leg kick. Arm action is full, fluid, and loose, coming through a high-¾ slot with arm speed, and a slight recoil finish. Fastball sits 87-88 and touches 89 mph with some downhill tilt, mostly strikes. Slider is already advanced with a chance to become a plus pitch in the future, 11/5-10/4 shape with tight spin and late depth thrown with full arm speed, 75-78 mph. Changeup is still developing, 81-82 mph, some strikes.
