    Padres' Austin Adams: Plunks three Dodgers in one inning

    Austin Adams allowed two runs on one hit, one walk and three hit batsmen while striking out one over one inning against the Dodgers on Sunday.The right-hander had trouble finding the plate in the outing, but he had little problem locating Dodgers batters. After starting off his appearance by plunking Will Smith, he surrendered a double, two more hit batsmen and a sacrifice fly to allow two runs to cross the plate on only one hit. The lack of control is nothing new for Adams -- in fact, by hitting three batters Sunday, he tied the live-ball-era single-season record with 23 HBPs in one season. Remarkably, the previous record-holder (Detroit's Howard Ehmke) threw 279.2 innings when he established the record in 1922, while Adams has needed only 48.2 frames to match the dubious record this season.

    Padres' Austin Adams: Working way back at alternate site

    Austin Adams (elbow) has been pitching at the San Diego Padres' alternate training site, but his return date remains undetermined, AJ Cassvell of reports.Adams was shut down with what has been described as a minor elbow issue in early March and was placed on the 10-day injured list near the end of spring training. He's eligible to come off the IL this Thursday, but there's no guarantee that he'll be activated immediately despite the fact that he has been throwing at the team's alternate site. "We don't [want] to send somebody back before they're ready -- either health or to their standards of being able to get Major League hitters out," manager Jayce Tingler stated when discussing Adams and fellow recovering reliever Pierce Johnson (groin).

    Padres' Austin Adams: Ticketed for IL

The elbow issue surfaced soon thereafter, however, as Adams hasn't made a Cactus League appearance since March 7 due to the injury. TIngler stressed that Adams isn't dealing with any sort of long-term setback, so the right-hander could be ready to join the San Diego bullpen at some point shortly after the minimum 10 days.

    Padres' Austin Adams: Enters camp healthy

    Austin Adams is fully recovered from ACL surgery and healthy for the 2021 season, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.Adams was acquired from the Mariners to bolster the San Diego Padres' bullpen just prior to the trade deadline last season. He wasn't particularly effective in the short stint with his new club, but disclosed that he was still getting back to full strength after recovering from ACL surgery. Reports to this point in camp suggest that his velocity has returned and his command has been sharp. Though not likely to factor into the saves picture, Adams could occupy a high-leverage role in the Padres' bullpen.
