Cubs' Jason Adam: Rejoins big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adam was recalled from the alternate training site Wednesday, Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports.

Adam made his team debut with the Cubs in August and allowed three runs on five hits with a 9:2 K:BB over 3.2 innings, and he's back with the club for another stint in the majors. Jose Quintana (lat) was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.

Cubs' Jason Adam: Back to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adam was optioned to the Cubs' alternate training site Tuesday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Tyler Chatwood and Jose Quintana were both activated from the injured list, and Adam's demotion was one of the corresponding moves. He gave up three runs in 3.2 innings across three appearances in the majors.

Cubs' Jason Adam: Joins big-league roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cubs selected Adam's contract Sunday from their alternate training site, Patrick Mooney of The Athletic reports.

Adam will assume the 40-man roster spot of pitcher Jharel Cotton, who was designated for assignment. The 29-year-old made 23 appearances out of the Toronto bullpen in 2019, posting a 2.91 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 18:10 K:BB in 21.2 innings.

Cubs' Jason Adam: Makes 60-player pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adam will be a part of the Cubs' 60-man player pool this season.

Adam will join a group of 11 players training in South Bend, while 39 others will work out at Wrigley Field. This likely puts Adam a little ways away from any meaningful MLB action, though he did look good over 23 games with the Blue Jays last season and could get a look at some point this year.

Cubs' Jason Adam: Sent to minor-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adam was assigned to minor-league camp Friday.

Adam was signed as a non-roster invitee in January but didn't stick around in big-league camp for long. He threw 4.2 innings in the Cactus League, striking out nine but walking eight while allowing six runs (three earned).

Cubs' Jason Adam: Signs with Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adam signed a minor-league deal with the Cubs on Monday that includes an invitation to spring training, freelance baseball writer Robert Murray reports.

Adam was non-tendered by the Blue Jays in early December but it's not overly surprising to see him garner interest elsewhere after posting a 2.91 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 18:10 K:BB across 21.2 innings during 2019. The 28-year-old could slot into a middle relief role with a strong spring training.

Jason Adam: Bound for free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adam was non-tendered by the Blue Jays on Monday.

Adam will test out free agency despite posting a solid 2.91 ERA over 21.2 innings this season. He struck out 18 and walked 10 over that stretch.

Blue Jays' Jason Adam: Back in majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adam was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Wednesday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Adam has made four appearances for the big club this season -- all since the start of August -- allowing just one run across seven innings. He'll take the roster spot of Sean Reid-Foley, who was optioned to Buffalo after struggling as the bulk pitcher Tuesday.

Blue Jays' Jason Adam: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adam was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Sunday.

He was up for a little over a week, and the Blue Jays used him frequently. Adam gave up one run while striking out five over seven innings (five appearances). Neil Ramirez was promoted to take his place in the bullpen.

Blue Jays' Jason Adam: Joins Blue Jays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adam had his contract selected from Triple-A Buffalo on Thursday.

Adam will provide the Blue Jays with bullpen insurance after the team traded away a pair of relievers in Daniel Hudson and Joe Biagini on Wednesday. The righty has made eight appearances with Buffalo since July 11, posting a 3.60 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 16:5 K:BB in 10 innings during that stretch.

March 18, 2019 07:16 PM
Blue Jays' Jason Adam: Sent to Blue Jays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adam was traded from the Royals to the Blue Jays for cash considerations Sunday, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports.

Adam, a non-roster invitee, made five appearances for the Royals this spring -- allowing two unearned runs in 4.1 innings while striking out five -- before being flipped to Toronto. The right-hander struggled in his big-league debut with Kansas City last season, finishing with a 6.12 ERA and 1.39 WHIP in 32.1 innings of relief. Adam did whiff more than a batter per inning (10.3 K/9), though he also issued too many free passes (4.2 BB/9). He'll provide bullpen depth for his new team.

Royals' Jason Adam: Back in Kansas City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adam returned to the Royals on a minor-league deal Monday.

The reliever got his first taste of big-league action in 2018 and failed to impress, stumbling to a 6.12 ERA in 32.1 innings. His 26.1 percent strikeout rate was above-average and his 10.6 percent walk rate didn't sink his season on its own, but his very low 25.3 percent groundball rate led to him allowing nine homers. He'll likely be organizational depth again for the Royals in 2019 unless he can figure out how to keep the ball in the yard.

Jason Adam: Removed from roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adam was non-tendered by the Royals on Friday, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

The 27-year-old righty made his big-league debut last season, but logged a 6.12 ERA and 1.39 WHIP in 32.1 innings. Flanagan reports that Adam will re-sign with the Royals in the coming days on a minor-league deal.

Royals' Jason Adam: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adam was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Saturday.

Adam struggled to a 6.12 ERA in 32.1 innings for the Royals, allowing nine home runs. Jake Newberry will take his place in the bullpen.

Royals' Jason Adam: Recalled from Omaha
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adam was called back up from Triple-A Omaha on Wednesday.

Just a day after being optioned to the minors, Adam will rejoin the big-league club as Ian Kennedy (oblique) was placed back on the 10-day DL. Adam has appeared in 18 games for the Royals in 2018, posting a 4.66 ERA and 1.34 WHIP with a 20:9 K:BB across 19.1 innings of relief.

July 10, 2018 04:52 PM
Royals' Jason Adam: Sent down
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adam was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Tuesday.

A spot had to be cleared for Tuesday's starting pitcher, Ian Kennedy (oblique), and Adam was the roster casualty. Adam has had issues with the long ball, and he's compounded those issues with walks, but even so he figures to return in the second half when bullpen reinforcements are inevitably needed.

Royals' Jason Adam: Called up from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adam was recalled from Triple-A Omaha on Wednesday.

In a corresponding move, the Royals placed Justin Grimm on the 10-day disabled list due to a right shoulder injury. Across 14 appearances in the big leagues this year, Adam has logged a 4.70 ERA and 1.24 WHIP over 15.1 innings of relief. Look for him to serve in low-leverage situations while he's with the club.

June 16, 2018 11:56 AM
Royals' Jason Adam: Optioned to Omaha
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adam was sent down to Triple-A Omaha on Friday.

Adam allowed a home run during each of his past two outings, raising his ERA to 4.70 in 15.1 innings of relief. His FIP of 7.37 suggests that he's been pretty lucky that he hasn't given up more runs, and the Royals finally elected to make a change in their bullpen with Brandon Maurer joining the club in a corresponding move.

Royals' Jason Adam: Promoted to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adam's contract was selected from Triple-A Omaha on Friday.

Adam started the season with Double-A Northwest Arkansas, but was promoted to Triple-A at the end of April. He'll now make his inaugural big-league appearance after producing a 1.00 ERA and holding opponents to a .119 batting average in 18 innings out of the bullpen between the two levels. He'll likely fill a middle-relief role for Kansas City. To make room for him on the active roster, Scott Barlow was optioned to Triple-A.
