  • Diamondbacks' Austin Adams: Diagnosed with ankle fracture

    Arizona placed Adams on the 60-day injured list Wednesday with a fractured right ankle.

    Adams suffered the injury in Tuesday's game against the Giants and can be ruled out for the remainder of the 2023 regular season. Slade Cecconi will fill his spot on the 40-man roster as he prepares to make his MLB debut in a start Wednesday night at San Francisco.

  • Diamondbacks' Austin Adams: Pulled with ankle injury

    Adams was removed from Tuesday's game with a right ankle injury, reports.

    Adams entered to pitch the eighth inning but was removed two pitches into the outing after Joc Pederson smashed a comebacker off his right ankle. The right-hander was helped off the field and was still being evaluated following the game.

  • Diamondbacks' Austin Adams: Contract selected from Triple-A

    Arizona selected the contract of Adams from Triple-A Reno on Saturday.

    Adams will take the place of Anthony Misiewicz with Misiewicz heading to the 15-day injured list with a strained right calf. The Diamondbacks transferred Carson Kelly (forearm) to the 60-day injured list to make room for Adams on the active roster. Adams will get a chance to work in the mid-to-late innings as a relief option while he's up with the D-Backs.

  • Diamondbacks' Austin Adams: Healthy again at Triple-A

    Adams (forearm) was reinstated from Triple-A Reno's 7-day injured list April 11 and has struck out four batters while allowing three earned runs on two hits and two walks across his two appearances.

    Adams opened the campaign on Reno's IL while he finished up his recovery from the surgery he underwent in August to repair his right flexor tendon. The 31-year-old righty has shown flashes out excellence at the MLB level in the past, but he'll likely need to turn in several quality appearances out of the Reno bullpen before Arizona considers promoting him.

  • Diamondbacks' Austin Adams: Reassigned to minors camp

    Adams (forearm) was reassigned to minor-league camp Friday.

    Adams signed a minor-league contract Friday, but he was unlikely to make the roster because he is recovering from surgery to repair a tear in his right flexor tendon. The veteran right-hander could make appearances with the Diamondbacks in 2023, but the team will need to add him to the 40-man roster in order for him to do so.

  • Diamondbacks' Austin Adams: Signs with Diamondbacks

    Adams (forearm) signed a minor-league contract with the Diamondbacks on Jan. 20.

    Adams elected free agency after being outrighted to Triple-A El Paso by the Padres in November. The right-hander underwent surgery to repair a tear in his right flexor tendon, and it's unknown if he'll be able to participate in spring training. When healthy, Adams could provide help for the Arizona bullpen, but the Diamondbacks will have to add him to the 40-man roster for that to happen.

  • Austin Adams: Elects free agency

    Adams (forearm) declined an outright assignment to Triple-A El Paso and elected free agency Thursday.

    Adams landed on the injured list in April after he made two appearances for San Diego and missed the rest of the season. He underwent surgery to repair his right flexor tendon in August, and it's unclear if he's expected to be fully recovered in time for spring training.

  • Padres' Austin Adams: Done for season

    Adams had surgery Friday to repair his right flexor tendon, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    It's another season-ending procedure for Adams, and he will likely miss time next year as well. Drew Pomeranz had this same procedure last August and is still rehabbing. Adams only pitched 2.1 innings in the majors this season, the second time in the last three years he's thrown fewer than five frames across all levels.

  • Padres' Austin Adams: Yet to resume throwing

    Adams (forearm) hasn't thrown since going on the injured list April 13, AJ Cassavell of reports.

    Adams' injury was initially considered mild, but he was subsequently diagnosed with a forearm strain and eventually moved to the 60-day injured list. The fact that he hasn't yet thrown suggests that his absence will extend beyond the minimum. Adams seems unlikely to return until after the All-Star break.

  • Padres' Austin Adams: Shifts to 60-day IL

    The Padres transferred Adams (forearm) from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day injured list Thursday.

    Adams was already expected to be shut down for at least six weeks after getting a platelet-rich plasma injection just over two weeks ago to relieve pain in his strained right forearm, but the move to the 60-day IL ensures he'll be on the shelf for at least two months. By moving Adams to the 60-day IL, the Padres freed up a spot on the 40-man roster for outfielder Trayce Thompson, whose contract was selected from Triple-A El Paso ahead of Thursday's series finale with the Reds.

  • Padres' Austin Adams: Shut down six weeks

    Adams (forearm) will be shut down for at least six weeks, AJ Cassavell of reports.

    Adams hit the injured list Wednesday with a forearm strain, which was originally reported to be mild. After receiving a second opinion, he'll receive a PRP injection and will avoid throwing for at least six weeks. He'll still have to ramp back up at that point, so a move to the 60-day injured list would come as no surprise.

  • Padres' Austin Adams: Receiving second opinion

    Adams (forearm) recently underwent an MRI and is scheduled to receive a second opinion on his injury during the upcoming week, AJ Cassavell of reports.

    Adams was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with an official diagnosis of a right forearm strain, but the fact that he's getting a second opinion on the injury suggests that season-ending Tommy John surgery could be on the table for the reliever. Even if Adams is able to avoid a procedure to address the injury, he'll almost certainly be sidelined for more than the minimum 10 days.

  • Padres' Austin Adams: Goes on IL with forearm strain

    The Padres placed Adams on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with a right forearm strain.

    Earlier Wednesday, manager Bob Melvin classified the injury Adams suffered in Tuesday's loss to the Giants as mild, but the right-hander's placement on the IL with a diagnosis of a forearm strain could suggest otherwise. For now, the Padres appear content to have Adams treat the injury through rest and rehab, but it's far from a given that he'll be ready to return from the IL when first eligible. San Diego recalled Pedro Avila from Triple-A El Paso to provide an extra right-handed arm in the bullpen while Adams is sidelined.

  • Padres' Austin Adams: Forearm injury viewed as mild

    Manager Bob Melvin clarified that the forearm injury that Adams picked up in his relief appearance in Tuesday's 13-2 loss to the Giants is considered mild, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.

    Adams will avoid a trip to the injured list for now, but those plans could change if the Padres aren't confident the right-hander will be ready to go for the Padres' upcoming four-game series with Atlanta that begins Thursday. He's made two relief appearances for San Diego so far this season, striking out two over 2.1 scoreless innings while also picking up a win.

  • Padres' Austin Adams: Exits with injury

    Adams was removed from Tuesday's game against the Giants with an apparent injury, AJ Cassavell of reports.

    Adams delivered 1.1 scoreless frames out of the bullpen before leaving the field with the training staff during the fifth inning. The specifics of the issue are unclear, and the 30-year-old should be considered day-to-day until the team updates his status.

  • Padres' Austin Adams: Earns win in relief

    Adams (1-0) was credited with the win over Arizona on Sunday, pitching a scoreless inning during which he walked three and struck out one.

    Blake Snell was expected to start Sunday's contest, but he was scratched just before the start of the game due to a groin injury, forcing the Padres to turn to a bevy of relievers to cover nine innings. The team got off to a quick five-run lead, and Adams was the fortunate reliever credited with the win as the second bullpen arm to enter the contest. The righty was far from flawless, however, as he threw only 10 of 24 pitches for strikes and walked three before getting out of his lone frame. Adams' control issues are well documented -- he incredibly set a live-ball era single-season record with 24 HBPs last season while also posting a 6.0 BB/9, yet he managed to record a respectable 4.10 ERA and notch 10 holds. He has the stuff to become an elite reliever, but the control issues remain a major obstacle.

  • Padres' Austin Adams: Struggles in Cactus League play

    Adams pitched 4.2 innings this spring, allowing four runs on five hits and three walks. He struck out six.

    Adams was characteristically wild in exhibition play, walking three and hitting one batter. His wildness last year was largely balanced by a 13.0 K/9 and .154 BAA. He's expected to fill a late-inning role again this season, though he's likely to find himself under plenty of stress if he isn't able to straighten out his control issues.

  • Padres' Austin Adams: Re-signed by Padres

    Adams and the Padres agreed to a one-year, $925,000 contract Tuesday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

    The relief pitcher will return for a third season with the Padres. In 2021, he appeared in 65 contests, compiling a 4.10 ERA and 1.20 WHIP while striking out 76 over 52.2 innings. Adams will once again be a late-inning option for the Padres after registering 10 holds last season.

  • Padres' Austin Adams: Plunks three Dodgers in one inning

    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.
