Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 55 | Power: 60 | Run: 65 | Arm: 60 | Field: 60 | Overall: 60

Remember when there was concern about Adell's ability to hit at the pro level coming out of the Kentucky high school ranks in 2017, even though he was the state's Gatorade Player of the Year and led all prepsters with 25 home runs? Yeah, no one else does, either, not after Adell raked across two levels of Rookie ball during his summer debut then hit his way all the way to Double-A at age 19 in 2018, fitting in a Futures Game appearance for good measure. Hamstring and ankle injuries shelved him in Spring Training, and he was sidelined for an extended period of time.

While the swing-and-miss tendencies that concerned some scouts still remain with Adell, his bat speed and ability to read pitches and make adjustments more than outstrip the worry. He's shown the ability to drive the ball to all fields and his over-the-fence pop started showing up consistently during his first full season. Yes, Adell can still refine his overall approach to see more pitches and draw more walks, but the strides he has quickly made in pitch recognition bode well for his future at the plate. Adell's speed works on both sides of the ball, giving him the ability to steal some bases and enough range to play center field, especially as he improves his reads and routes.

Should he slow down a touch as he physically matures, Adell has shown the ability to play the outfield corners. A shoulder issue that kept him from playing the outfield in 2017 is a distant memory and the plus arm that allowed him to crank out plus fastballs from the mound in high school has returned. The five-tool outfielder is way ahead of schedule and could be patrolling the Angels outfield alongside Mike Trout sooner rather than later.
