Adell went 3-for-5 with a home run, a double, two runs and three RBI for Triple-A Salt Lake on Sunday. He had missed the team's previous three games due to a knee injury, according to Sam Blum of The Athletic. Adell returned to action with his first multi-hit performance in the minors since May 21 -- a span of 15 contests. The 23-year-old's three-game absence was a result of getting his knee drained, per Blum, but it's not considered a serious concern. Adell has played in 28 contests with the Triple-A club this season, slashing .213/.304/.537 with eight homers, 11 doubles, 20 RBI and a stolen base.
Adell said after Friday's game that he was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. The Angels haven't yet announced the move, but Adell revealed that he will be headed back down. Adell enjoyed more success in his latest stint in the majors, going 7-for-19 with a pair of doubles, but he will need to continue performing with Salt Lake to get another prolonged look in the majors.
Adell is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Red Sox, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. Adell started the past two games after being promoted from Triple-A Salt Lake on Sunday, and he'll step out of the lineup after going 1-for-7 with an RBI and three strikeouts. Juan Lagares will start in right field and bat seventh Tuesday.
Adell was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake on Sunday, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. Taylor Ward was placed on the 10-day injured list with a hamstring strain, and manager Joe Maddon made it clear that Adell would not be up were it not for Ward's injury. Adell hit .122 with one home run, five walks and 18 strikeouts over his last 11 games at Triple-A.
Adell missed time earlier this week due to a stomach flu, according to Sam Blum of The Athletic, but the outfielder returned to action for Triple-A Salt Lake on Saturday and went 0-for-3 with a walk and a strikeout. Adell was sent down to Salt Lake in early May after struggling to get going in the majors, and he is slashing .241/.366/.638 with five homers, 12 RBI and a stolen base in 15 games with the Triple-A club. He could get another call-up at some point in the campaign, but it would likely take an injury for Adell to see an everyday big-league role.
