Adams was released by the Braves on Thursday.
He was designated for assignment last week and it sounds like he requested his unconditional release. With just over three weeks left in the season, Adams may struggle to latch on with another club in 2020. He hit .184 with two home runs and 18 strikeouts in 49 at-bats this season.

Overall, Adams had a .184/.216/.347 slash line with two homers in 51 plate appearances. The move frees up roster space for Atlanta following the trade acquisition of Tommy Milone.

Braves manager Brian Snitker said Wednesday that he doesn't expect Adams (hamstring) to be ready to return from the 10-day injured list next week, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.
Adams is eligible to come off the IL this weekend, but the 31-year-old hasn't demonstrated enough progress in his recovery from the strained left hamstring at this point to gear up for a return. Until Adams is able to run the bases without any discomfort, the Braves likely won't be able to pinpoint a target date for his return to the active roster.

Adams was removed from Tuesday's game against the Mets with left hamstring tightness.
The veteran slugger hit a solo homer in his first at bat Tuesday, but he appeared to tweak his hamstring running out a grounder during the fourth inning. Adams should be considered day-to-day until the severity of the injury is determined.

The veteran slugger took Jalen Beeks deep in the sixth inning for his first homer of the season, although Atlanta was already down 10-1 heading into the frame.
