The Angels transferred Adell (hamstring/ankle) from High-A Inland Empire to Double-A Mobile on Sunday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. The transaction indicates that the Angels were satisfied with how Adell checked out both at the plate and in the field during his six-game assignment in the California League. After excelling at three different minor-league stops in 2018, Adell's ascent was stunted by the Grade 1 left hamstring strain and Grade 2 right ankle sprain he sustained in March. The 20-year-old was fortunately able to make a full recovery from the injuries after a two-month rehab process and could have an outside chance at reaching the big leagues in the second half of 2019. Any potential promotion this season would likely be contingent on Adell trimming down his strikeout rate and the Angels remaining in the thick of the playoff race.
Adell (hamstring/ankle) has resumed playing at High-A Inland Empire and has homered in two of his first six contests. Included in the stretch is just a lone walk against 10 strikeouts in 25 at-bats, but a healthy Adell should ascend quickly through the Angels' system this summer. Expect him to see Double-A in short order.
Adell (hamstring/ankle) will head to High-A Inland Empire to play in some rehab games before he is sent to Double-A Mobile, Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times reports. The Angels will elect to ease him into action in the hitter-friendly Cal League, where Adell notched a .290/.345/.546 slash line (135 wRC+) in 57 games last season. Torres did not specify exactly when Adell will report to High-A, but it will presumably be pretty soon.
Adell (ankle/hamstring) has been taking swings and feels great, Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times reports. He strained his left hamstring and also sprained his right ankle during spring training. Per Torres, the Angels expected it would take 10-to-12 weeks for Adell to return to action in the minor leagues. While he hasn't taken batting practice against pitchers or played in games, the Angels are encouraged by the pace of his recovery.
Adell was diagnosed with a Grade 1 left hamstring strain and a Grade 2 right ankle sprain after undergoing an MRI on Sunday, Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times reports. He's expected to miss 10-to-12 weeks as a result of the injuries. Though Adell was unlikely to make an impact for the big club in 2019 as anything more than a late-season callup, the significant health setback now makes that possibility even more unlikely. Assuming Adell experiences a normal recovery from both injuries, he should retain his status as the Angels' No. 1 prospect and one of the top outfield prospects in all of baseball. The timeline provided by doctors suggests Adell won't be ready for game action until late May at the earliest.
