Adell is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Athletics, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. The rookie outfielder has struggled through his first five big-league games, going 3-for-19 with one run scored and 11 strikeouts while also committing a four-base error. Adell missed Thursday's and Friday's contests with quadriceps soreness, but he was in the lineup the past three days and there's been no indication he aggravated the injury. Justin Upton and Brian Goodwin will start in the outfield corners.
Adell went 0-for-4 with four strikeouts in Sunday's loss to the Rangers. He also committed a four-base error that allowed a run to score. It's hard to imagine Adell ever having a worse day on the field, especially considering his immense talent. The rookie not only whiffed all four times he came to the plate, he also allowed a Nick Solak flyball to bounce off his glove and over the outfield wall in the fifth inning for a rare four-base error. Adell's career has gotten off to a slow start -- he has collected only two hits (both singles) while striking out nine times in 15 at-bats -- and he acknowledged Sunday that he hasn't quite adjusted to the demands of the big leagues yet, per Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times. "I think I'm not there yet. I'm ready to get there. I'm on my way to getting there," Adell stated.
Adell (quad) is back in the lineup Saturday against the Rangers, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. Adell didn't appear in the past two games while he worked through quad tightness, but he'll return to the seventh spot in the lineup Saturday. Over his first two major-league games, Adell went 2-for-8 with one run and four strikeouts.
Adell (quad) remains out of the lineup Friday against the Rangers. Adell was held out of Thursday's game with quadriceps tightness, and he won't start again as he continues to recover. Manager Joe Maddon didn't sound too concerned about the issue prior to Thursday's contest, and it's unclear whether the 21-year-old will be available off the bench Friday. Brian Goodwin will shift to right field with Justin Upton getting the start in left field.
Adell is dealing with a little quadriceps tightness, which is why he is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Mariners, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. Manager Joe Maddon said he thinks it will just be a one-game absence for Adell. The top prospect is 2-for-8 with four strikeouts through his first two MLB games. Justin Upton and Brian Goodwin are batting sixth and seventh, respectively, in Adell's absence.
