Adams was outrighted from the Braves' 40-man roster Wednesday. Adams spent the final month of the regular season with the big-league team, going 2-for-8 with a home run and two RBI as a reserve outfielder after being with Triple-A Gwinnett for a majority of the year. Alongside Adams, fellow outfielder Preston Tucker was also outrighted to the minors.
Adams' contract was selected by the Braves on Saturday. Adams won an Opening Day roster spot with the Braves this season, only to be designated for assignment and electing free agency in late April. He spent some time in the Cubs' organization before returning to the Braves on a minor-league deal in mid-July. He'll wind up back where he started, though he's unlikely to be anything other than a bat off the bench down the stretch.
Adams signed a minor-league contract with the Braves on Monday. Adams had opened the year with Atlanta before becoming a free agent in late April after refusing an outright assignment to Triple-A Gwinnett. After a brief period with the Cubs' Triple-A team, he'll end up with Gwinnett after all. The 28-year-old has a .264/.338/.450 line in 146 career major-league plate appearances.
Adams signed a minor-league contract with the Cubs on Friday, David O'Brien of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Adams was designated for assignment by the Braves in late April and declined his outright assignment to Triple-A Gwinnett after clearing waivers. The Cubs' offense hasn't scored more than three runs in their last 10 games, but there is currently no clear path to significant at-bats for the 28-year-old as he heads to the minors.
Adams elected free agency after declining his outright assignment to Triple-A Gwinnett, David O'Brien of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Adams was designated for assignment just over a week ago and went through waivers unclaimed. He'll now test the open market, though his .235 batting average in the big leagues hardly gives him a good case to receive anything bigger than a minor-league deal.
