Angels' Jo Adell: Likely bound for minors
Adell is expected to begin the season at Triple-A, MLB.com reports. He's hitting .250 with two home runs in a .734 OPS this spring.
Adell had a problematic 37.7% strikeout rate last season and it's been a similar story this spring. He has 16 strikeouts and just two walks in 39 plate appearances this spring.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Jo Adell: Hits eighth home run
Adell went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in a 4-1 victory over the Rangers on Friday.
Adell homered off Glenn Otto in the second inning for his eighth long ball of the season. It has been a disappointing year for Adell, who has struggled immensely to get on base and has found himself on the short side of an outfield platoon due to his .263 OBP and weak fielding. The silver lining is that Adell has set career highs in at-bats and homers and is still only 23 years old.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Jo Adell: Fades into platoon role
Adell is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Guardians.
Adell will take a seat for the fourth time in six games and appears to have moved into the short side of a platoon in left field with the lefty-hitting Mickey Moniak, who is serving as the Angels' leadoff man for the second day in a row. Since the All-Star break, Adell has turned in a .609 OPS while striking out at a 38.1 percent clip, which has made it tough for the Angels to justify giving him everyday playing time.... See More ...

Angels' Jo Adell: Slugs seventh homer
Adell went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 5-4 extra-inning win over the Tigers.
Adell was on the bench for consecutive games against Houston over the weekend, but he appears to have settled back into a near-everyday role. He went back-to-back with Mike Ford in the second inning for his seventh long ball of the season, which ended a 2-for-23 slide over the previous eight contests. Adell will draw his fourth start in a row in Wednesday's series finale, manning left field and batting seventh.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Jo Adell: Remains on bench
Adell will sit Saturday against the Astros, Sarah Valenzuela of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Even in a lost season, the Angels don't seem all that committed to giving Adell the chance to prove himself, as he's now been on the bench for three of the last four games. His .224/.270/.368 slash line in 65 games and his 36.7 percent strikeout rate don't make a great case for regular at-bats, but he's still a 23-year-old who had plenty of prospect pedigree before he made his debut in 2020. Ryan Aguilar will start in left field Saturday.... See More ... See Less

Angels' Jo Adell: Goes yard twice in Friday's rout
Adell went 4-for-5 with two home runs, three runs scored and three RBI in Friday's 12-0 win over the Blue Jays.
After lacing a couple singles early, Adell took his production into overdrive with a seventh-inning solo shot off Yusei Kikuchi and a two-run blast in the ninth off emergency hurler Whit Merrifield. Adell snapped an 18-game homer drought with the performance, and the four hits equaled his total from his prior nine games combined. Even with this outburst, the 23-year-old is still only slashing .230/.292/.402 through 31 games since the All-Star break.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Jo Adell: On bench Tuesday
Adell is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Rays.
After a recent two-game absence due to a thumb injury, Adell started in each of the past four contests and went 2-for-12 with eight strikeouts. Though Magneuris Sierra will pick up the starting nod in left field Tuesday, the non-contending Angels will likely continue to deploy Adell as an everyday player down the stretch with the hope that he can cut down on his strikeouts and emerge as a productive regular in the lineup....

Angels' Jo Adell: Hurts thumb as pinch hitter
Angels interim manager Phil Nevin said after Monday's 6-2 loss to the Mariners that Adell is day-to-day after he was hit on the thumb while striking out in his lone plate appearance, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
Adell was out of the lineup Monday as part of a planned off day, but the Angels summoned him from the bench with two outs and the bases empty in the bottom of the ninth with the hope he could spark a rally. He ultimately struck out on four pitches and hurt himself in the process, leaving his status murky for Tuesday's contest. If Adell can't go Tuesday, Steven Duggar would likely pick up another start in the outfield in his stead.... See More ... See Less
