  • Rays' Jason Adam: Records third save

    Adam struck out the only two batters he faced and earned a save over the Blue Jays on Sunday.

    Adam finished off the 7-3 win in quick fashion after Shawn Armstrong ran into some trouble in the ninth inning. The 30-year-old righty needed just seven pitches to pick up his first save since June 9. Adam lowered his season ERA to 1.44 with a 35:8 K:BB through 34 appearances.

  • Rays' Jason Adam: Takes second loss

    Adam (0-2) allowed two earned runs on two hits to take the loss Monday against the Yankees.

    Adam entered the game with the score knotted at two in the ninth inning. He got the first out, but then allowed a single, a triple and a sacrifice fly to account for the runs and take the loss. His usage Monday fell in line with that of a traditional closer, but he entered in the fourth inning Sunday. That suggests Adam is being used as the primary high-leverage reliever out of the Tampa Bay bullpen. He has been excellent regardless of usage this season, maintaining a 1.30 ERA and 0.69 WHIP across 27.2 innings.

  • Rays' Jason Adam: Enters in fourth inning

    Adam recorded one out without allowing a baserunner to record a hold Saturday against the Orioles.

    Adam's outing was brief and not particularly notable, though he followed starter Jeffrey Springs into the game in the fourth inning. Adam picked up his second save of the season June 9 -- which came after Andrew Kittredge (elbow) went down -- but Colin Poche closed out Saturday's win. Adam has been excellent this season by maintaining a 0.68 ERA, 0.64 WHIP and 30:8 K:BB, though it appears that he will be reserved for high-leverage scenarios rather than a traditional ninth-inning role.

  • Rays' Jason Adam: Tallies another save

    Adam allowed one walk and struck out one across a scoreless inning to earn the save Thursday against the Cardinals.

    Adam was the only Rays reliever to enter the game, and he collected his second save of the season with little trouble. Now that Andrew Kittredge (elbow) is back on the injured list, the closer role in Tampa Bay is wide open. Adam has certainly proven to be reliable to this point in the season, as he's maintained a 0.72 ERA with a 30:8 K:BB across 25 innings. However, Colin Poche and Brooks Raley have also been used in save situations.

  • Rays' Jason Adam: Winds up with first career save

    Adam struck out one in a perfect ninth inning Friday to record his first career save in a 5-2 win over the Blue Jays.

    Andrew Kittredge, who wound up getting the win, and Brooks Raley both worked in the eighth inning, and manager Kevin Cash chose Adam to handle the ninth against the middle of the Toronto order. The 30-year-old needed 17 pitches (nine strikes), but he got the job done. Adam has been sharp this season while primarily working in middle relief, adding two holds to his save over 14 appearances with a 1.26 ERA, 0.56 WHIP and 18:4 K:BB through 14.1 innings.

  • Rays' Jason Adam: Having impressive spring

    Adam threw a scoreless inning with three strikeouts in Friday's spring training win over Boston. "(He) continues to impress," manager Kevin Cash told the Tampa Bay Times. "The fastball, but obviously the off-speed pitches that he's just gaining a lot of confidence with."

    Adam is making a strong case to win a bullpen job with six strikeouts, two walks and two runs allowed in four innings this spring. He's competing for a final spot in the bullpen against Colin Poche and Ryan Thompson.

  • Rays' Jason Adam: Signs one-year deal with Rays

    Adam joined the Rays on a one-year, $900,000 deal Thursday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

    The 30-year-old righty was non-tendered by the Cubs after posting a 5.91 ERA in a small sample of 10.2 innings last season, but the Rays evidently saw enough to offer him a major-league deal. His appeal is likely related to his ability to miss bats, as he owns a 37.0 percent strikeout rate in 24.1 innings across the last two seasons, which should theoretically be high enough to offset his 13.0 percent walk rate.

  • Jason Adam: Non-tendered by Cubs

    Adam was non-tendered by the Cubs on Tuesday, Tim Stebbins of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Adam had a brief stint in the majors during 2021 and had a 19:6 K:BB over 10.2 innings while giving up seven earned runs. He'll look to latch on elsewhere for 2022.

  • Cubs' Jason Adam: Recalled by Cubs

    Adam was recalled from Triple-A Iowa on Tuesday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Adam was called up as the 29th man for Friday's doubleheader against the Cardinals, and he made his first major-league appearance since May 9. He struck out three in a perfect relief inning and will provide an extra arm in the Cubs' bullpen late in the season.

  • Cubs' Jason Adam: Selected, added as 29th man

    Adam's contract was selected from Triple-A Iowa and he will be the 29th man for Friday's doubleheader against the Cardinals, Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports.

    Adam has managed a 1.80 ERA in five minor-league innings this month, but his 8.22 mark with the Cubs earlier this season suggests he'll likely be limited to low-leverage relief work, if anything, during Friday's doubleheader.

  • Cubs' Jason Adam: Re-signs with Cubs

    Adam (ankle) re-signed Monday with the Cubs on a minor-league contract.

    Adam posted an 8.22 ERA and 1.96 WHIP across nine appearances out of the big-league bullpen earlier this season before he was designated for assignment in late May. The roster move came shortly after Adam sustained an ankle injury that required surgery, and the Cubs ultimately released him once he cleared waivers. Nearly six weeks after being cut loose, Adam is back with the Cubs, signaling that the organization is comfortable with where he stands on the health front. The veteran right-hander will report to the Cubs' Arizona Complex League affiliate as he looks to build up following the long layoff, but he's expected to eventually settle at Triple-A Iowa.

  • Cubs' Jason Adam: Designated for assignment

    The Cubs designated Adam (ankle) for assignment Tuesday, Maddie Lee of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    The move comes three days after Adam underwent left ankle surgery. Adam figures to clear waivers, considering the injury and his struggles at the big-league level this season. The Cubs needed to remove him from the 40-man roster to make room for Patrick Wisdom, whom they recalled Tuesday for added infield depth.

  • Cubs' Jason Adam: Undergoes ankle surgery

    Adam underwent surgery to repair a dislocated left ankle Friday, Andy Martinez of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    Recovery from the procedure will likely keep Adam out for an extended period, though the Cubs didn't specify exactly how long they expect him to be out. He's made nine appearances at the big-league level this season, struggling to an 8.22 ERA and 1.96 WHIP, but was pitching for Triple-A Iowa when he suffered the injury.

  • Cubs' Jason Adam: Sent to minors

    Adam was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Friday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Adam's latest stint on the big-league roster lasted a week. He made just a single relief appearance, striking out three while allowing two hits in a scoreless inning against the Pirates. Jake Arrieta (thumb) returned from the injured list in a corresponding move.

  • Cubs' Jason Adam: Joins big-league club

    Adam was recalled from Triple-A Iowa on Friday, Maddie Lee of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    The 30-year-old was optioned to the alternate site last week but will rejoin the Cubs ahead of Friday's series opener versus the Pirates. Adam has surrendered seven runs on seven hits with a 10:6 K:BB across 6.2 innings out of the bullpen this season.

  • Cubs' Jason Adam: Optioned to alternate camp

    Adam was optioned to the Cubs' alternate training site Monday.

    Adam was roughed up in his relief appearance in Sunday's loss to the Brewers, as he allowed five runs on three hits and two walks while failing to record an out. As a result, he'll be sent to the team's alternate camp for the time being. Right-hander Trevor Megill's contract was selected by the Cubs as part of a shuffle after Jonathan Holder (shoulder) and Rowan Wick (oblique) were transferred to the 60-day injured list.

  • Cubs' Jason Adam: Back from COVID IL

    The Cubs reinstated Adam from the COVID-19 injured list Wednesday, Maddie Lee of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Adam was able to clear MLB's health and safety protocols in two days after first landing on the COVID-19 IL on Monday. The Cubs optioned reliever Brad Wieck to their alternate site to open up a spot on the active roster for Adam.
