White Sox's Micker Adolfo: Homers in first AFL game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adolfo (elbow) homered in his first game of the Arizona Fall League on Wednesday.

He was a late addition to the AFL roster and will attempt to make up for lost time after undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2018 and arthroscopic elbow surgery in May. Adolfo has monster raw power, so if he can get on base at an acceptable clip, he could someday be a 30-homer threat in the majors. He will likely open the 2020 season at Double-A but could reach the majors next year as he is already on the 40-man roster.

White Sox's Micker Adolfo: Slated for season-ending surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adolfo will undergo season-ending arthroscopic surgery on his right elbow, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

This is a tough break for Adolfo, who underwent Tommy John surgery on the same elbow in July. The 22-year-old outfielder is expected to be fully healthy by spring training next year. According to James Fegan of The Athletic, Adolfo will receive a fourth option year for the missed time.

White Sox's Micker Adolfo: Out with sore elbow
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adolfo was placed on the injured list at Double-A Birmingham with right elbow soreness Monday, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

Adolfo underwent Tommy John surgery on the same elbow in July, so there's potentially more of a worry here than with most similar injuries. The outfielder was hitting just .205/.337/.295 with a 37.9 percent strikeout rate in 23 games prior to the injury.

White Sox's Micker Adolfo: Sent to Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adolfo was optioned to Double-A Birmingham on Wednesday.

Adolfo got into a few major-league games this spring, going 3-for-11 at the plate. He'll earn a promotion after posting a strong .282/.369/.464 line in 79 games for High-A Winston-Salem last season.

White Sox's Micker Adolfo: Draws start at DH
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adolfo (elbow) is included in the White Sox lineup as the designated hitter for Saturday's Cactus League game versus the Rangers, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

Adolfo underwent Tommy John surgery in July and likely won't be cleared for outfield duty this spring, but the elbow injury shouldn't hinder him at the dish. He resumed hitting in late January and has already received six at-bats during Cactus League play, recording two hits. Once spring training concludes, Adolfo will likely report to High-A Winston-Salem or Double-A Birmingham and serve as a full-time DH.

White Sox's Micker Adolfo: Progressing towards return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adolfo (elbow) will get examined Friday in hopes of gaining clearance to serve as a designated hitter in games, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

Adolfo resumed hitting in late January, started throwing a few weeks ago, and has been taking live batting practice over the last five days. The 22-year-old is recovering from Tommy John surgery in July, and Friday's visit to the doctor will hopefully provide some timeline for his return.

White Sox's Micker Adolfo: Plays catch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adolfo (elbow) played catch Wednesday, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

Adolfo underwent Tommy John surgery in July. He resumed hitting in January and is now able to throw, though it remains unclear when he'll be ready to play the field in a game.

White Sox's Micker Adolfo: Begins hitting
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adolfo (elbow) started hitting one week ago, Scott Merkin of the MLB.com reports.

Adolfo underwent Tommy John elbow surgery last summer to repair an injury that cropped up during spring training. He was limited to DH-only duty and maintained, and in some areas improved upon, his output from 2017. He's expected to be ready at some point during spring training, but likely as a DH.

White Sox's Micker Adolfo: To undergo Tommy John surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adolfo will undergo Tommy John surgery in the coming weeks and will be out until at least next spring.

Tommy John surgery carries a shorter timetable for position players than pitchers, and according to Scott Merkin of MLB.com, Adolfo will be out 8-to-10 months, so he could return next March, if he has the surgery soon and returns on the short side of that estimate. He is one of the White Sox's top hitting prospects, and had been dealing with this elbow issue all year, but only recently had a setback in his throwing program. He should still be rostered in most serious dynasty leagues; after all, Twins outfield prospect Alex Kirilloff underwent the procedure a couple years ago and is now one of the top prospects in the game. Adolfo, 21, hit .283/.368/.466 with 11 home runs and a 27.2 percent strikeout rate in 334 plate appearances this year for High-A Winston-Salem.

White Sox's Micker Adolfo: Set to begin throwing program
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adolfo will begin a throwing program after a positive evaluation of his elbow Monday, James Fegan of The Athletic Chicago reports.

Adolfo has been limited to desginated hitter duty this season while dealing with a sprained UCL and strained flexor tendon in his right elbow. He's posted strong numbers at the plate despite the injury, hitting .274/.367/.442 with seven homers in 59 games for High-A Winston-Salem.

White Sox's Micker Adolfo: Scheduled for another MRI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adolfo will undergo an MRI in the coming weeks to determine whether he can start a throwing program, James Fegan of The Athletic Chicago reports.

Adolfo has been shut down from throwing for two months thanks to a sprained UCL and strained flexor tendon in his right elbow. While the injury has limited the 21-year-old to DH duties, it hasn't hindered his performance at the plate, as he's slashing an impressive .301/.404/.506 with six homers across 44 games with High-A Winston-Salem.

White Sox's Micker Adolfo: Will require follow-up MRI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adolfo is scheduled to undergo a follow-up MRI in the near future as the White Sox look to assess his recovery from a sprained UCL and strained flexor tendon in his right elbow, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

The injury hasn't prevented Adolfo from tearing it up at High-A Winston-Salem, where he's logged a .328 average, three home runs and 14 RBI in just 67 at-bats, but he's been limited strictly to designated-hitter duties thus far. White Sox general manager Rick Hahn has previously stated that Adolfo will continue playing so long as he feels good, but there remains a possibility that the 21-year-old will be shut down at some point to undergo Tommy John surgery, which would keep him out of action until 2019.

White Sox's Micker Adolfo: Hitting unaffected by elbow
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adolfo went 1-for-4 with a solo homer run and a walk for High-A Winston-Salem on Saturday.

Other than not playing the field, Adolfo has not been impacted by the strained ulnar collateral ligament in his right shoulder. Limited to designated hitter duty, Adolfo has reached base safely in all 10 games, hitting .375 (15-for-40) with one homer and nine RBI. The White Sox are hoping the elbow can resolve itself without surgery, but Tommy John surgery is still a possibility.

White Sox's Micker Adolfo: Hitless Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adolfo (elbow) went 0-for-2 as a designated hitter in a split-squad game against the Padres on Thursday.

Adolfo is dealing with a sprained UCL in his right (throwing) elbow and is hoping to avoid surgery. The condition kept him out for a bit, so his timing at the plate will be off until he gets more plate appearances. White Sox trainers say he can't worsen the condition as a hitter, so Adolfo's proceeding without the surgery, but that could change.

White Sox's Micker Adolfo: Will DH on Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adolfo (elbow) will be utilized as the designated hitter and bat seventh in Thursday's spring game, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Adolfo's situation is still a little murky, as the 21-year-old continues to explore his options after suffering a sprained UCL in his right (throwing) elbow last week. He could still opt to undergo Tommy John surgery if the elbow doesn't show any signs of improvement, but the organization believes that he can DH at the minor-league level without risking any further damage.

White Sox's Micker Adolfo: 'Ready to take at-bats'
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adolfo (elbow) could be utilized as a pinch hitter or out of the DH spot within the next week during spring games, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Manager Rick Renteria stated that Adolfo is "ready to take some at-bats for us" and that he "feels very good," which is obviously a positive sign following his UCL injury last week. It seems likely that the team will give Adolfo a chance to play through the elbow ailment but could potentially shut him down for Tommy John surgery if necessary. As previously stated by James Fegan of The Athletic, the club is open to trying him out as a designated hitter in the minors this season but ultimately Chicago wants him at full health heading into 2019 and beyond, which will leave a possibility of the procedure on the table throughout the beginning of this season.

White Sox's Micker Adolfo: Exploring options following UCL injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adolfo (elbow) could open his minor-league season at designated hitter if he does not undergo Tommy John surgery, James Fegan of The Athletic Chicago reports.

The White Sox are reviewing all possible rehab avenues following Adolfo's UCL sprain during spring training. According to Fegan's report, the team believes he could DH at High-A Winston-Salem without risking further damage to his elbow. Adolfo will take some time off to rest, but if he doesn't show improvement during his recovery period, he will likely need to undergo Tommy John surgery, thus ending his 2018 season. We'll have to wait and see how the ligament recovers over the coming days and weeks.

White Sox's Micker Adolfo: Suffers sprained UCL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adolfo has sprained the UCL in his right (throwing) elbow, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

UCL injuries are always scary. A sprained UCL isn't far from a torn UCL, which typically requires Tommy John surgery. For now, that's just the worst case scenario, and Adolfo will get a second opinion to determine the best course of action. Even if he avoids surgery, though, rehabbing from the sprain should take at least six weeks. He has yet to reach Double-A, so he wasn't likely to debut until at least 2019, but if he misses significant time this year his debut could be pushed back a bit.

White Sox's Micker Adolfo: Had fractured knuckle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adolfo spent his time during the Instructional League rehabbing a fractured knuckle on his left pinky suffered in August, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

The injury was the result of a freak accident and ended Adolfo's 2017 season prematurely, but not before the 21-year-old outfielder put himself on the prospect map. He hit .264 with 16 home runs, 28 doubles and 68 RBI across 112 games for Low-A Kannapolis. Countering that production was a 31.5 strikeout percentage, which suggests some plate discipline is in order for 2018, when Adolfo is expected to start at High-A Winston-Salem. Adolfo, an international free agent that signed with the organization in 2013, credited the club's conditioning and strength programs for helping him establish career highs.

White Sox's Micker Adolfo: Added to 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adolfo was added to the White Sox's 40-man roster on Monday to protect him from the Rule 5 draft.

A high-profile international signing in 2013, it took Adolfo a few seasons to start to live up to the hype, but he broke out last year in a repeat trip to Low-A. He hit .264/.331/.453 with 16 home runs, but also struck out 31.5 percent of the time. Improving his pitch recognition and patience will be key to his development as he moves to High-A this season.
