Adams was recalled by the Yankees on Wednesday. Adams has thrown 6.2 innings for the Yankees this season, allowing seven runs (six earned) while walking four and striking out just two. He'll be a low-leverage option for the team down the stretch.
Adams and Sonny Gray are candidates to start one half of Saturday's doubleheader against the Orioles, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. Adams' sole major-league appearance came in a mediocre spot start back in early August, when he allowed three runs and struck out just two batters in five innings against the Red Sox. He has a disappointing 4.98 ERA in 23 starts for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Meanwhile, Gray has posted a 5.34 ERA on the season and was demoted from the rotation in early August.
Adams was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Wednesday. Adams should offer a fresh arm capable of pitching multiple innings out of the Yankees' bullpen following Tuesday's extra-innings win. The 24-year-old has made one appearance for the big club this season, allowing three runs through five innings in a spot start. He'll take the roster spot of Aroldis Chapman (knee), who was sent to the disabled list in a corresponding move.
Adams was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Wednesday, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports. As expected, Adams will head back to the minors with J.A. Happ set to come off the disabled list to start Thursday's series opener against the Rangers. The soon-to-be 24-year-old held his own in a spot start against the Red Sox earlier in the month, allowing three runs over five innings. He should be back with the big club when rosters expand in September, assuming he isn't needed sooner. Adams owns a 4.50 ERA and 102:48 K:BB across 21 starts (98 innings) with the RailRiders this season.
Adams will take the hill against the Red Sox on Saturday, Coley Harvey of ESPN reports. As expected, Adams will make his big-league debut in Fenway Park after manager Aaron Boone confirmed his promotion prior to Friday's contest. Across his past six starts with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Adams has logged a 3.07 ERA and 1.40 WHIP with a 30:17 K:BB over 29.1 innings.
