Adams was traded to the Royals from the Yankees on Monday in exchange for Cristian Perez, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.
Adams saw limited major-league action in each of the past two seasons, but he was designated for assignment in order to make room for Gerrit Cole on the 40-man roster. The right-hander was very productive at Double-A and Triple-A in 2017, but he has declined over the past two years, recording a 4.57 ERA with a 1.39 WHIP over 200.2 innings at the Triple-A level in 2018 and 2019. It wouldn't be surprising to see the 25-year-old see some low-leverage bullpen situations in the majors with the Royals sometime in 2020, but he'll have to rebound if he hopes to play a more significant role.
The Yankees designated Adams for assignment Wednesday.
Once one of the organization's most prized pitching prospects, Adams' development plateaued after he churned out a 2.89 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 103 strikeouts in 115.1 innings with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in 2017. He appeared in 13 games with the big club in 2019 but worked exclusively in relief, giving up 24 earned runs on 39 hits and 11 walks over just 25.1 innings. If Adams clears waivers, he'll likely stay in the organization and open the 2020 campaign back at Triple-A.
Adams was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Sunday.
Adams has worked sparingly with the big-league club throughout the season, serving a role as a multiple-inning reliever. He hasn't been particularly effective, allowing multiple earned runs in four of his eight appearances. That's resulted in a 7.48 ERA and 1.85 WHIP, so it's unlikely he sees any type of role in high-leverage situations.
Adams allowed five runs on 10 hits and three walks while striking out two over 3.2 innings Thursday night against the Indians. He was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre after the game.
Adams was lit up by Cleveland on the way to a 19-5 loss in the series opener, though his team was already facing a big deficit when he entered the game. The 25-year-old has now given up at least one run in each of his last six outings, resulting in a demotion. He's accrued a 7.48 ERA and 1.85 WHIP with a 16:10 K:BB over 21.2 innings this season in the majors.

The Yankees have yet to announce a corresponding roster move. Adams served as the 26th man for New York's doubleheader against the Red Sox over the weekend, allowing two runs on three hits over two innings. The soon-to-be 25-year-old has given up 11 runs across 14 big-league innings this season.
Adams was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre following Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Red Sox.
Adams served as the 26th man for the twin bill and allowed two runs on three hits over two innings during the nightcap. The 24-year-old has now given up 11 runs across 14 major-league innings this season as he makes his way back to the RailRiders.
Adams will serve as the Yankees' 26th man for Saturday's doubleheader against the Red Sox.
He will likely work as the primary pitcher in the nightcap, with Chad Green potentially working as the opener, depending on how the day game unfolds. Adams has a 4.46 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 76 strikeouts in 78.2 innings at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and has given up nine runs in 12 innings in the big leagues this year.
The Yankees optioned Adams to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday.
Adams made the trip to London with the Yankees over the weekend and was recalled ahead of Sunday's 12-8 win over the Red Sox. He was pressed into relief for the contest but didn't impress, recording just two outs while serving up four runs on five hits. The Yankees will swap him out of the bullpen with another long-relief option in Nestor Cortes, who was called up from Triple-A on Tuesday.
The Yankees recalled Adams from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Sunday.
Adams had already joined the Yankees as a member of the taxi squad for their two-game series with the Red Sox in London this weekend but wasn't activated until New York needed seven relievers to cover 8.1 innings in Saturday's 17-13 win. With the Yankees using an opener (Stephen Tarpley) for Sunday's contest, manager Aaron Boone said that Adams and Luis Cessa would be the main options to provide length behind Tarpley, per Erik Boland of Newsday. Adams has previously made three long-relief appearances with the Yankees earlier this season, giving up five runs and striking out 10 over 11.1 innings.
The Yankees returned Adams to Double-A Trenton following Tuesday's doubleheader with the Mets.
Adams served as the Yankees' 26th man in the twin bill, working in long relief in the second game after James Paxton lasted just 2.2 innings. The right-hander helped save the New York bullpen by covering 4.1 frames -- giving up three runs (two earned) on three hits and three walks -- but Adams' heavy usage takes him out of the mix for Saturday's game against the White Sox, when the Yankees will require a fifth starter. The Yankees now seem likely to get by with a bullpen game that day.
The Yankees recalled Adams from Double-A Trenton to serve as the 26th man for their doubleheader Tuesday with the Mets, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.
New York recently transferred Adams from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to Trenton with the expectation that he would start for the Double-A affiliate Tuesday, but the organization evidently determined he would be more useful as a long-inning option out of the bullpen for the big club's twin bill. The Yankees will have to reduce their roster to 25 ahead of their series with the White Sox that begins Thursday, but if Adams goes unused in the doubleheader, it's possible he'll stick around in the majors. Due to Domingo German's (hip) recent move to the injured list, the Yankees will have an opening in the rotation Saturday in Chicago, and manager Aaron Boone has already mentioned Adams as a possibility for the spot start.
Adams threw seven shutout innings in a 3-0 victory for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Wednesday, giving up three hits, striking out two and walking one.
The 24-year-old has been locked in for the RailRiders of late, as he's now boasting a 0.85 ERA with a 27:6 K:BB over his last five starts. He made two appearances at the big-league level this season, giving up three earned runs with seven strikeouts over seven innings. Manager Aaron Boone has said he expects Adams to be back with the big club at some point this season.
Adams (1-0) earned the win against the Royals in Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader. He allowed three runs on five hits across four innings and was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre after the game, Coley Harvey of ESPN.com reports.
Adams pitched better than his final line indicates with the Yankees doing him no favors with multiple defensive misplays, but he nonetheless managed to get his first career win. The 24-year-old was serving as the 26th man for the doubleheader, so he was headed back to the RailRiders following the game regardless of his performance. Manager Aaron Boone liked what he saw from Adams on Saturday and said "he'll be back" with the Yankees at some point.
Adams was called up to serve as the 26th man for Saturday's doubleheader against the Royals, Coley Harvey of ESPN.com reports. He is expected to work as the primary pitcher for Game 2 behind opener Chad Green.
Adams logged three scoreless innings with four strikeouts in his lone MLB appearance this season. He will likely be limited to around four or five innings, but working as the primary pitcher could allow him to qualify for the win.
Adams was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre after Sunday's contest.
Adams was recalled by the Yankees on May 13, though his first appearance with the club came Sunday against the Rays. He pitched the final three innings in a 13-5 victory to pick up his first career save.
Adams gave up one hit and one walk while striking out four through three scoreless innings to record his first save in a 13-5 win over the Rays.
Adams has been used almost exclusively as a starting pitcher in his professional career, so it was a bit of a surprise to see him record his first career save. The Yankees were using an opener, and Adams was called upon to pitch three innings, so Aroldis Chapman owners don't have anything to worry about.
Adams was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Monday.
Adams recorded a 7.04 ERA in 7.2 innings of work in his debut last season. He's up to replace Jonathan Loaisiga, who landed on the injured list with a shoulder injury, though it's Luis Cessa who will start in Loaisiga's place Monday against Baltimore.
Adams was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.
Adams was a long shot at best to break camp in the big leagues, and his five earned runs in 2.1 spring innings couldn't have helped his case. He should be a depth option in case of injury this season.
Adams took the loss Wednesday against the Tigers, allowing five runs on four hits and one walk while recording just one out.
Adams never settled in during his Grapefruit League debut Wednesday. After walking the leadoff hitter, the right-hander allowed a single, two doubles and a triple before recording his first and only out of the game. He was subsequently pulled, and the runner he left on base eventually came around to score. Adams will look to turns this around in his next outing.
Adams was recalled by the Yankees on Wednesday.
Adams has thrown 6.2 innings for the Yankees this season, allowing seven runs (six earned) while walking four and striking out just two. He'll be a low-leverage option for the team down the stretch.
