Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 45 | Power: 55 | Run: 50 | Arm: 70 | Field: 50 | Overall: 45

After a bonus-skimming scandal in 2008 essentially shut down the White Sox international operations for a few years, they got back in business by signing Adolfo for $1.6 million out of the Dominican Republic in 2013. MLB Pipeline's No. 2-rated international prospect that summer behind current organization mate Eloy Jimenez, he has seen his progress slowed by injuries. Ankle and hamate issues truncated his first two full pro seasons, he missed the last two months of 2018 following Tommy John surgery and played just 36 games this season because of arthroscopic elbow surgery.

When healthy, Adolfo has made encouraging progress at the plate during the last two seasons. He's showing more patience and making more consistent contact, allowing him to make better use of his well above-average raw power. He's recognizing pitches better, using the entire field and understanding that home runs will come naturally thanks to his bat speed, strength, loft and leverage in his right-handed stroke.

Adolfo has the best outfield arm in the organization and had one of the best in the Minors before he got hurt, and it should bounce back after his elbow reconstruction. He moves well for his size and projects as an average runner and defender in right field. He has one of the highest ceilings in the system, though his chances of reaching it won't be clear until he can stay on the field for a longer stretch of time.
