Padres' Austin Adams: Set for team debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Padres reinstated Adams (knee) from the 60-day injured list Sunday.

One of several Mariners dealt to San Diego ahead of the Aug. 31 trade deadline, Adams is finally ready to make his Padres debut after a lengthy recovery from the torn ACL he sustained just under a year ago. Prior to suffering the injury, Adams enjoyed a breakthrough 2019 season out of the Seattle bullpen, posting a 3.94 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 53:16 K:BB in 32 innings. If he can quickly rediscover that form over the final week of the regular season, Adams could emerge as a key piece in the San Diego bullpen during the playoffs.

Padres' Austin Adams: Shipped to Padres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams (knee) was traded from the Mariners to the Padres on Sunday in a trade involving Ty France several players, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

Adams has been recovering since undergoing knee surgery in September of 2019, but he appears to be nearing his return to the mound. The right-hander had been throwing to begin the season, but he'll have to face live hitters at some point before he's cleared to return to game action. Adams made 30 appearances (two starts) with the Nationals and Mariners in his first major-league season in 2019, and he posted a 3.94 ERA and 53:16 K:BB over 32 innings.

Mariners' Austin Adams: Continues throwing in Peoria
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams (knee) is throwing regularly at the Mariners' spring training facility in Peoria, Arizona, Greg Johns of reports.

The right-handed reliever is working out in Peoria instead of the team's alternate training site in Tacoma so as not to count against the 60-man player pool. Adams' recovery from October knee surgery could be nearing its end, considering it's been reported he's been close to activation in recent weeks. However, he'll likely need to transition to Tacoma and face live hitters before he's deemed ready to jump into game action.

Mariners' Austin Adams: Knee not yet 100 percent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams (knee) is unlikely to rejoin the Mariners during their upcoming road trip, Greg Johns of reports.

The Mariners were hopeful that Adams would be able to throw a live bullpen session this weekend and return as early as Monday, but that's unlikely to happen since his knee isn't yet at 100 percent. The right-hander underwent surgery to repair a torn ACL in October and has been recovering ever since. The team is scheduled to return to Seattle on Aug. 19, and Adams could return then if his knee returns to full strength during the road trip.

Mariners' Austin Adams: Could return over road trip
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams (knee) could be activated for the Mariners' upcoming road trip, which begins Aug. 10 against the Rangers, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

Adams is working his way back from surgery to repair a torn ACL, a procedure he underwent back in September. The league's COVID-19 protocols make it difficult for players to get work in during a road trip while not on the roster, but it's possible Adams is ready to go before the team departs.

Mariners' Austin Adams: Debut date still unclear
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams (knee) is picking up his intensity in throwing sessions but remains without a firm timetable for his 2020 debut, in part due to the Mariners' upcoming schedule, Greg Johns of reports. "I'd love to get him off the mound or face some hitters before we go out on the road," manager Scott Servais said. "We just don't have as much time or field access on the road as we did in the past, so to do a live BP or simulated game on the road is really challenging."

The Mariners are currently in the midst of a homestand that runs through next Sunday. Based on Servais' comments, it's therefore likely Adams has to wait until at least Aug. 19, when Seattle returns from a nine-day road trip, to be activated. COVID-19 protocols do not allow players to be flown in during a road trip, either, meaning Adams would have to demonstrate he's ready for activation over the course of the next week to have a chance to travel with the team.

Mariners' Austin Adams: Remaining on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams (knee) will remain on the 60-day injured list to begin the season, Lauren Smith of The News Tribune reports.

Adams had been working to return to full strength for the regular season after undergoing surgery on a torn ACL in September, but the team will give him more time to recover rather than rushing him back into action. Manager Scott Servais said that the team may have rushed the right-hander too much during camp. "We're slow playing him a little bit," Servais said. It's unclear when Adams could make his debut this season, but he could pitch in higher-leverage situations when he's ready to return.

Mariners' Austin Adams: Uncertain status ahead of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams could begin the season on the 10-day injured list while he continues to recover from knee surgery, Greg Johns of reports.

Adams underwent knee surgery during the offseason and pushed hard to work his way back to action, but manager Scott Servais said Wednesday that the team is unsure of whether he'll be ready to start the season. As a result, the team could place him on the 10-day injured list in order to provide him with more time. When he's ready to play, the right-hander could get some save chances with Yoshihisa Hirano (illness) working his way back to action.

Mariners' Austin Adams: Could be part of crowded bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams is one of 11 relievers that could make the Mariners' 30-man roster, Corey Brock of The Athletic reports.

Adams has a good chance of picking up a few saves, though Yoshihisa Hirano just reported back to camp. This highlights just how crowded the Mariners' bullpen will be, though there's a good chance that saves could be shared by multiple relievers again this season.

Mariners' Austin Adams: Could see save chances
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams (knee) was identified by manager Scott Servais as a candidate for some closing opportunities with Yoshihisa Hirano (undisclosed) now on the injured list, although the Mariners skipper noted Wednesday he plans to utilize more than one pitcher in the ninth-inning role, Greg Johns of reports.

Adams has seemingly corroborated he's over last season's ACL injury, as he's been facing hitters in summer camp. The right-hander has some closing experience from his time in the minors, and his mid-90s fastball is certainly a tool that could serve him well in high-leverage situations.

Mariners' Austin Adams: Tests self against hitters
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams (knee) faced hitters in a live batting practice session Wednesday, Greg Johns of reports.

Aside from allowing a long home run to teammate Kyle Lewis, Adams looked sharp in what was his first appearance against hitters since he tore the ACL in his left knee Sept. 21. The Mariners consider Adams a full go for summer camp, but it wouldn't be surprising if the coaching staff elected to use him mostly in simulated-game settings initially rather than intrasquad or exhibition contests. In any case, the expectation is that Adams will be a member of the Opening Day bullpen, likely handling a high-leverage role after ranking third in the American League among relievers in 2019 with a 14.8 K/9 rate.

Mariners' Austin Adams: Impressing early in summer camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams, who was confirmed to be completely recovered from offseason surgery shortly before summer camp started, has impressed manager Scott Servais in early summer camp workouts, Greg Johns of reports. "The knee is 100%," Servais said. "I saw him throw a full bullpen [session] yesterday and it was coming out hot. He looked really good. No hesitations, not holding back at all."

The hard-throwing right-hander finished third in AL strikeout rate (14.8 K/9) in 2019 after an early-May trade from the Nationals, so his full availability is integral to the Mariners' bullpen outlook. Adams is likely due for primary setup duties behind a potential closing duo of Yoshihisa Hirano and Matt Magill in the coming season.

Mariners' Austin Adams: Placed on 60-man player pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams (knee) is part of the Mariners' 60-man player pool that will report to the team's summer camp, Greg Johns of reports.

The 29-year-old reliever has reportedly overcome his knee issues over the time play has been paused, and he'll now have a shot to make a case for a spot on the expanded 30-man rosters teams will be allowed to field over the first two weeks of the season. Adams is still on the 60-day injured list and consequently off the 40-man roster, but Johns predicts the right-hander will make the cut if he proves his health over summer camp.

Mariners' Austin Adams: Puts knee injury in past
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams is back at 100 percent after undergoing knee surgery over the offseason, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

Adams likely would have missed an on-time start to the season while completing the recovery from his knee procedure, but with subsequent delays, it turns out he will not miss any action at all. He pitched well for the Mariners last year, posting a 3.77 ERA over 29 outings, so chances are he will be on the roster when the regular season gets underway.

Mariners' Austin Adams: Could be healthy for season start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

GM Jerry Dipoto said Saturday that Adams (knee) may be healthy when play begins for 2020, Greg Johns of reports.

The 28-year-old resumed throwing in March the same day spring training was suspended, and he's continued his rehab from knee surgery away from the Mariners' spring facility. Adams has also been running at 100 percent in 30-yard sprints, so it appears he's mostly rebuilding his endurance for once the season resumes. The right-hander appeared in 30 games between Washington and Seattle last season, posting a 3.94 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 53:16 K:BB with 10 holds over 32 innings.

Mariners' Austin Adams: Resumed throwing before pause
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams (knee) had just resumed throwing the day that commissioner Rob Manfred suspended spring training, Eno Sarris of The Athletic reports.

Adams has continued throwing on his own as he makes his comeback from October ACL surgery. The 28-year-old has been assisted by some wearable technology, as he's donning a Motus sleeve that tracks stress on the elbow and provides data that Adams has been transmitting to Mariners coaches so they can monitor his daily workload. Adams has been solid during three separate big-league stints with the Nationals and Mariners over the last three seasons. His most extensive stretch in the majors came in 2019, when he logged a career-high 30 appearances in Seattle and produced a 3.94 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and stellar 40.8 percent strikeout rate across 32 innings.

Mariners' Austin Adams: Placed on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams (knee) was moved to the 60-day injured list Wednesday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

Adams was placed on the injured list in order to make a roster spot available for the Mariners to sign Taijuan Walker. Adams is still recovering from right knee surgery to repair his torn ACL, a procedure originally delayed due to the discovery of a blood clot in his left calf. The 28-year-old accumulated a 3.77 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 51:14 K:BB across 31 innings with Seattle in 2019. If Adams doesn't experience any significant setbacks during the rehab process, it is likely he'll be able to return to the Mariners bullpen around June.

Mariners' Austin Adams: Blood clot delaying surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams (knee) has been unable to undergo ACL surgery on his left knee due to the discovery of a blood clot in his left calf, Greg Johns of reports.

The clot is a byproduct of the knee injury, and Adams is already on blood-thinning medication to address the issue. The right-handed reliever will fly home to Florida on Monday and expects to have the surgery in about "a week or two" once doctors provide clearance for the procedure.

Mariners' Austin Adams: Not expected back until June
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams, who is scheduled to undergo surgery in the near future to address a torn ACL and meniscus damage in his left knee, isn't expected to be ready to pitch for the Mariners until June at the earliest, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

Adams is expected to face a 6-to-8-month rehab and recovery period once the surgery is performed, but the Mariners are apparently planning to proceed cautiously with the right-handed reliever and keep him on the shelf beyond that projected timeline. Though Adams finished his first season with the Mariners with a 3.77 ERA in 29 appearances, his 15.1 K/9 rate was the fourth-best mark in baseball among all pitchers who covered at least 30 innings. He'll likely be ticketed for a high-leverage role out of the bullpen next summer once he's healthy again.

Mariners' Austin Adams: Needs ACL surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams underwent an MRI on Sunday that revealed damage to the ACL in his left knee, Greg Johns of reports. He'll require surgery to repair his knee and is expected to need 6-to-8 months to recover.

According to Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle, Adams also relayed that he sustained meniscus damage to the knee and will delay his surgery until the inflammation he's been experiencing calms down. The health setback represents a disappointing conclusion to what had been a strong season for Adams, who emerged as a dominant relief weapon for Seattle in June before a lat injury kept him on the shelf for nearly two months. Adams rejoined the big club as a September callup, only for the knee injury he suffered Saturday to present a major obstacle heading into the offseason. The right-hander should have a key spot in the Seattle bullpen waiting for him once he's healthy again, but the timing of the knee procedure means he'll likely open 2020 on the injured list.
