Adams was released by the Braves on Thursday. He was designated for assignment last week and it sounds like he requested his unconditional release. With just over three weeks left in the season, Adams may struggle to latch on with another club in 2020. He hit .184 with two home runs and 18 strikeouts in 49 at-bats this season.
