Royals' Chance Adams: Back in big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams was recalled by the Royals on Monday.

Adams made just one appearance in his previous stint on the Royals' roster, allowing three runs on four hits while recording just five outs. He now owns an 8.57 ERA in 34.2 major-league innings, meaning he's unlikely to fill anything but a low-leverage relief role during his time with the club. Ian Kennedy (calf) landed on the injured list in a corresponding move.

Royals' Chance Adams: Returns to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams was optioned to the alternate training site Wednesday.

The 26-year-old was recalled over the weekend and struggled in his team debut Monday, allowing three runs on four hits across 1.2 innings. Adams could rejoin the big-league roster later in the year, but for now he'll participate in workouts at the alternate site.

Royals' Chance Adams: Struggles in Royals debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams allowed three runs on four hits across 1.2 innings pitched in Monday's loss to the Cardinals. He struck out one.

Adams was making his season debut after being recalled Sunday. He came on to pitch the sixth inning and immediately gave up a single to Brad Miller and two-run homer to Paul Goldschmidt. He retired the next three Cardinals in order but gave up another run before being pulled with two outs in the seventh.

Royals' Chance Adams: Called up to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Royals recalled Adams from their alternate training site Sunday.

Adams will provide Kansas City with a fresh multi-inning arm out of the bullpen after the Royals needed four relievers to cover the final five innings of Saturday's 7-2 loss to the Twins. The 26-year-old right-hander, who made 13 relief appearances for the Yankees in 2019, has yet to make his Kansas City debut.

Royals' Chance Adams: Sent back down
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams was optioned to the Royals' alternate training site Sunday.

Adams' shuffle between the major-league roster and alternate camp continues. The right-hander was called up by Kansas City on Saturday but will be optioned for the second time in three days. He began the season on the injured list for an undisclosed reason and still hasn't made an appearance in the majors this year.

Royals' Chance Adams: Recalled by Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams was recalled from the Royals' alternate training site Saturday.

Adams was optioned to the Royals' alternate training site Friday, but he'll rejoin the active roster just one day later after Nick Heath (hamstring) was placed on the 10-day injured list. The right-hander spent the start of the season on the injured list with an undisclosed injury and is unlikely to pitch in important spots.

Royals' Chance Adams: Activated and optioned
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams (undisclosed) was reinstated from the injured list and optioned to the Royals' alternate training site Friday.

An undisclosed issue sent Adams to the injured list to start the year, though he wasn't particularly likely to break camp with the team even if healthy. He's thrown just 33 career big-league innings, struggling to an 8.18 ERA.

Royals' Chance Adams: Sent to IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams (undisclosed) was placed on the injured list Thursday, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

It's unclear what Adams is dealing with or how long it will keep him sidelined. He figures to fill a low-leverage relief role once he's healthy.

Royals' Chance Adams: Traded to Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Yankees' Chance Adams: Bumped off 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Yankees' Chance Adams: Recalled by Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Yankees' Chance Adams: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Yankees' Chance Adams: Back with big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Wednesday, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.

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.

Yankees' Chance Adams: Returns to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Yankees' Chance Adams: Up as 26th man
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Yankees' Chance Adams: Heads back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Yankees' Chance Adams: Joins big club in London
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Yankees' Chance Adams: Back to Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Yankees' Chance Adams: Joins big club for doubleheader
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Yankees' Chance Adams: Tosses shutout in Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
