Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Fastball: 55 | Slider: 55 | Curveball: 50 | Changeup: 50 | Control: 50 | Overall: 45

Though Adams started during just one of his three seasons at Dallas Baptist and dominated as a reliever while advancing to Class A Advanced in his 2015 pro debut, the Yankees opted to move him to the rotation. He excelled in his first two pro seasons, going a combined 28-6 with a 2.40 ERA and 279 strikeouts in 277 2/3 innings in 2016-17, but he wasn't as sharp last year. His stuff took a hit after he had offseason surgery to remove bone chips from his elbow, though he still managed to make his big league debut in August.

Adams operated with a 93-95 mph fastball during his first two pro seasons as starter before dipping to 91-93 mph, and he was much more hittable with less velocity. His slider also wasn't as hard or sharp as it had been the past two years. He'll mix in some curveballs and fading changeups but works primarily off his two solid offerings.

Adams' control and command also regressed a bit, contributing to his struggles. After previously projecting as a possible No. 3 starter, he's now more likely to contribute as a multi-inning reliever unless he can reclaim his mid-90s fastball and mid-80s slider.
