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.
Adams cleared waivers Wednesday and was outrighted to Triple-A Gwinnett. Adams was cast off the 40-man roster last week to clear a spot on the roster for Matt Wisler, but he ultimately didn't garner any interest on the waiver wire. The outfielder now seems to be destined for an organizational depth role in the Braves' organization.
Adams was designated for assignment by the Braves on Thursday. The Braves needed to clear a roster spot in order to recall Thursday's starter, Matt Wisler, from the minors, and Adams was the corresponding roster casualty. The 28-year-old, who was 4-for-17 (.235) with a homer before being cut loose, was ultimately deemed expendable with Johan Camargo returning from the disabled list earlier in the week. He'll take a spin through waivers to determine where he'll report.
Adams delivered a pinch-hit, two-run homer Saturday in the Braves' 15-2 victory over the Phillies. Any fantasy excitement should be quelled by the fact the blast was lifted off an eighth-inning pitch by position player Pedro Florimon, who was called on to mop up Philadelphia's rough day. Adams will see fleeting playing time that should dwindle further once Ronald Acuna surfaces with the big-league club in the coming weeks.
