Rays' Willy Adames: Continues strong start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 1-for-3 with a double, a walk, a stolen base and a run in a win over the Braves on Monday.

Several of his teammates popped much bigger hits, but Adames' performance was nevertheless encouraging. The shortstop is rewarding the Rays and his fantasy managers early, hitting safely in three of his first four games with a pair of doubles, two RBI, three walks, Monday's steal and two runs overall.

Rays' Willy Adames: Opens season with two-hit effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 2-for-3 with an RBI single and a walk in a loss to the Blue Jays on Friday.

Adames' eighth-inning single brought the Rays to within two runs before the comeback stalled. The 24-year-old shortstop will look to build on a 2019 season that saw him take a step back in both batting average and on-base percentage but that also featured new career highs in home runs (20) and RBI (52).

Rays' Willy Adames: Gets workout in at the Trop
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames was one of more than a dozen players present at Tropicana Field for the re-start of workouts Monday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The shortstop was present and accounted for in what was the first opportunity for Rays players to work out together in more than two months. Participants were able to play catch, run, use free weights in a makeshift gym and also complete plyometric jumps and other exercises during Monday's session, which was conducted in groups of two. While Adames and his teammates did not have access to amenities such as batting cages, bullpen mounds or the full weight room, Topkin notes those areas may be accessible as early as next week. The team is also expected to make the stadium available Wednesday and Friday this week.

Rays' Willy Adames: Enjoys strong spring slate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames hit .364 (8-for-22) with two doubles, one home run, two RBI, four walks and six runs across 12 Grapefruit League games before spring training was suspended.

Adames is set to once again serve as the everyday shortstop in 2020, but his impressive spring showing nevertheless is an encouraging sight for fantasy managers banking on a breakout season. The 24-year-old already made significant strides in his major-league sophomore campaign in 2019, as he established new career highs in doubles (25), home runs (20) and RBI (52), while also lacing his first big-league triple. Whittling down last season's bloated 26.2 percent strikeout rate will certainly be key to Adames taking the next step at the plate, and on that note, it's somewhat disappointing that eight of the 14 outs he made in spring play came on whiffs.

Rays' Willy Adames: Slugs first spring homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 2-for-2 with a two-run home run and two runs overall in a Grapefruit League split-squad win over the Tigers on Thursday.

The 24-year-old came into the game without his first spring hit, but he remedied that with a second-inning two-run shot off Tigers starter Jordan Zimmermann. Adames was eventually pulled for phenom Wander Franco to open the sixth inning, but not before kick-starting his Grapefruit League ledger with the multi-hit effort. Adames heads into the 2020 campaign looking to build on the career-best 20 home runs and 52 RBI he garnered last season across 584 plate appearances.

Rays' Willy Adames: Out of Saturday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames is not in Saturday's lineup against the Blue Jays.

He is hitting .274 with three home runs and zero steals in 23 games this month. Joey Wendle will start at shortstop and lead off.

Rays' Willy Adames: Goes deep in key win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in a win over the Red Sox on Monday.

Adames launched the second of two fourth-inning homers for the Rays, with the shortstop's round tripper, which came with Kevin Kiermaier aboard, snapping a 4-4 tie. Adames is carrying a five-game hitting streak and has come alive at the plate in the second half overall, slashing .278/.340/.477 across 239 plate appearances since the All-Star break.

Rays' Willy Adames: Slugs 19th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in an extra-innings win over the Red Sox on Saturday.

Adames launched a mammoth 462-foot shot to center in the seventh, extending the Rays' lead to 3-1 at the time. The young shortstop is generating strong production as the season winds down and the Rays chase a playoff spot, as he's now reached safely in 11 of the last 12 games in which he's logged at least one official at-bat.

Rays' Willy Adames: Comes through with game-winning hit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 3-for-5 with a double and two RBI in Friday's extra-innings win over Boston.

Adames delivered an RBI double in the seventh inning to tie the game, and he pushed across the game-winning run in the bottom of the 11th with a single to left field. The 24-year-old shortstop sits with 18 home runs, 48 RBI and four stolen bases over 145 games this season for Tampa Bay.

Rays' Willy Adames: Cranks 18th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, a walk and two more runs scored during Friday's win over the Angels.

Adames was the first of three Tampa Bay batters to go deep off Andrew Heaney in the third inning. The 24-year-old shortstop did so with a solo shot, marking his 18th long ball of the season while batting .252/.314/.412.

Rays' Willy Adames: Gets day off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames is not starting Thursday against the Rangers, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.

Rays' Willy Adames: Raps out pair of hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 2-for-3 with a double and a run in a win over the Blue Jays on Friday.

Adames snapped out of a 2-for-17 slump that had covered his first five games of September with Friday's multi-hit effort. The young shortstop's double was his first extra-base hit of the current month as well, and he's only hit safely courtesy of anything other than a single on eight occasions since the calendar flipped to August (124 plate appearances).

Rays' Willy Adames: Launches 17th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in a loss to the Astros on Wednesday.

Adames made things interesting in the ninth inning with a 338-foot shot to left that plated Avisail Garcia, bringing the Rays to within two. The 23-year-old has reached safely in seven of his last eight games, and Wednesday's production pushed his August average to an impressive .310 across 94 plate appearances.

Rays' Willy Adames: Drives in three during win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 3-for-4 with a pair of run-scoring singles and a solo home run in a win over the Orioles on Thursday.

Adames' resurgent month continued in fine fashion Thursday, with the young shortstop churning out his second three-hit game in the last three contests and leaving the yard for the first time since Aug. 6. His latest successful night at the plate boosted his slash line to .252/.314/.412, with his batting average now at its highest point since July 3.

Rays' Willy Adames: Raps out three hits in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 3-for-4 with two runs in a loss to the Mariners on Tuesday.

Adames' bat sprung back to life Tuesday, snapping him out of a four-game, 1-for-15 skid. The young shortstop is still hitting an impressive .305 during August after generating just a .193 figure in July, although he's laced just a modest four extra-base hits during the current month.

Rays' Willy Adames: Three-hit night in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 3-for-4 with an RBI single, a double, a walk and two runs in a win over the Padres on Tuesday.

Adames' second-half surge continued in impressive fashion Tuesday, as he played a part in nearly half of the team's runs for the night. The shortstop is now hitting .333 (18-for-54) with three doubles, five home runs, 10 RBI, eight walks, one hit-by-pitch and 14 runs across the 64 plate appearances he's logged in his last 16 games. Moreover, with a modest two round trippers and five RBI through his first 11 games of the month, he's nevertheless just one shy of matching the tally he accumulated in each category during all of July.

August 7, 2019 01:00 PM
Rays' Willy Adames: Blasts 15th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 1-for-3 with a home run, a walk and two RBI in Wednesday's 7-6 win over the Blue Jays.

Adames has provided one third of his 15 home runs on the season in the last nine games, rewarding those who stuck with him during what had been a mostly brutal July. He'll stick in the lineup for Wednesday's series finale, but his role as the Rays' No. 9 hitter hinders his run-scoring and run-producing upside to some degree even while he's wielding a hot bat.
