Angels' Jo Adell: Playing center field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adell has played the last three games in center field for Triple-A Salt Lake, Rhett Bollinger of reports.

Bollinger speculated that this might be to facilitate a quicker promotion to the majors for Adell, to replace Juan Lagares in center field. Adell is hitting .273/.323/.711 with 15 homers for Salt Lake, albeit with 39 strikeouts in 130 plate appearances.

Angels' Jo Adell: Displaying power at Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adell has hit six home runs in his past five games with Triple-A Salt Lake and is up to 10 total long balls in 17 contests this season.

Adell has continued to experience strikeout issues -- he has whiffed in over one-third of his at-bats -- but he's also shown off his prodigious power with Triple-A Salt Lake. The Angels are in last place in the AL West and recently lost superstar outfielder Mike Trout (calf) for an extended period, so it wouldn't be surprising if Adell made his way back to the big leagues before long.

Angels' Jo Adell: Call-up not imminent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Angels have no immediate plans to call up Adell or Brandon Marsh from Triple-A Salt Lake after Mike Trout was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a calf strain that will likely keep him sidelined for 6-to-8 weeks, Daniel Guerrero of reports.

Marsh is the top prospect in the Angels' farm system, while the 22-year-old Adell has graduated from prospect status but is still regarded as one of the organization's top young assets. Adell floundered in his first taste of the big leagues in 2020, and he has yet to return to peak form thus far during the young minor-league season. Through 12 games and 57 plate appearances at Triple-A, Adell is slashing .231/.298/.519 with an 8.8 percent walk rate and a 36.8 percent strikeout rate. Until Adell makes a compelling case for a call-up or until the Angels are willing to start Marsh's MLB service clock, Taylor Ward and Juan Lagares are expected to see most of the work in center field while Trout is out.

Angels' Jo Adell: Raking early on at Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adell went 2-for-5 with a pair of home runs and five RBI for Triple-A Salt Lake in its 10-9 win over Reno on Monday.

Adell has gotten off to a blazing start to the minor-league season, producing a .273/.333/.773 slash line with three home runs, one stolen base and a 2:8 BB:K in 24 plate appearances. After Adell endured a rough showing in his first taste of the big leagues in 2020, the Angels wanted the 22-year-old to regain some confidence at Triple-A, and that plan appears to be working well so far. Whenever the Angels feel Adell is ready for another look in the majors, he'll have an everyday role in right field waiting for him. The Angels are currently using Taylor Ward at the position, but he's batting just .150 and doesn't project as a regular at the big-league level.

Angels' Jo Adell: Starting season at Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adell will play for Triple-A Salt Lake when the minor-league season gets underway, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

After struggling to a .161/.212/.266 slash line in 132 at-bats at the big-league level last season, the Angels determined Adell would be best off getting more minor-league seasoning before jumping back up to the majors. That opportunity will come at Triple-A, which is no surprise given that the 22-year-old played 27 games at that level in 2019. Adell is likely to spend time with the big club at some point this season.

Angels' Jo Adell: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adell was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Sunday.

Adell spent most of the 2020 campaign on the major-league roster but slashed .161/.212/.266 with three home runs and seven RBI over 38 games while also struggling defensively. The 21-year-old posted a 1.072 OPS with two home runs and six RBI over 19 Cactus League at-bats this spring but will still require some time in the minors to begin the regular season. However, Adell is a strong candidate to return to the big-league roster in 2021 if he can produce at Triple-A Salt Lake.

Angels' Jo Adell: Available off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Angels list Adell (knee) as an available reserve player for Monday's Cactus League game against the Reds, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

Adell picked up a knee contusion over the weekend when he collided with the outfield wall, but his inclusion on the lineup card Monday implies that the injury isn't a concern for the young outfielder. The 21-year-old is expected to begin the season at Triple-A Salt Lake, but if he rakes right away against Pacific Coast League competition, he might not have to wait long to get another look with the Angels in an everyday role in the corner outfield.

Angels' Jo Adell: Dealing with knee contusion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adell was diagnosed with a bruised knee after exiting Saturday's Cactus League game against the White Sox, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

The young outfielder was fortunate to avoid a more serious injury after he collided with a wall while tracking a flyball. The Angels described his removal from Saturday's contest as precaution, and though he'll remain out of the lineup Sunday against the Cubs, Adell should be cleared to play within the next few days. He's slated to complete a light workout Sunday and is considered day-to-day.

Angels' Jo Adell: Removed as precautionary measure
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adell was removed from Saturday's spring game against the White Sox as a precautionary measure, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

Adell collided with the outfield wall during the second inning and remained in the field for the rest of the frame. However, he was removed from the game after the inning ended. The Angels didn't provide an injury diagnosis for Adell, and it's not yet clear whether he'll be forced to miss additional time.

Angels' Jo Adell: Homers for first spring hit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adell went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run and a walk in Saturday's Cactus League loss to the Rockies.

Adell entered the contest hitless in six at-bats before smashing a two-run shot in the second inning off Dereck Rodriguez. The 21-year-old is competing for an Opening Day roster spot, but the February addition of Dexter Fowler and Adell's substantial struggles last season make it more likely that he'll begin the campaign at Triple-A.

Angels' Jo Adell: Logs time in left field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adell played five innings in left field against the Reds during Tuesday's Cactus League contest and went 0-for-2 with a strikeout.

The time in left field was unusual for Adell, as he played mostly in right field last season, adding a few appearances in center. He did log 22 appearances in left in the minors between 2018 and 2019, so the position is not entirely new for him. There's no indication that the Angels are planning to play the 21-year-old in left field this season, so Tuesday's showing may simply have been an early-spring experiment.

Angels' Jo Adell: Working on quieting swing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adell spent time quieting his swing over the winter in hopes of hitting more line drives up the middle, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

Adell clearly needed to work on something following his disastrous debut last year in which he hit just .161/.212/.266 in 38 games. He's still just 21 years old, so writing him off at this stage would be incredibly premature, but the gap between what he was and what he's projected to be one day is uncomfortably large. Quieting his swing makes a lot of sense, as his 41.7 percent strikeout rate stands out as one of the worst features of his statline, though it comes with the risk of taking a bit of pop out of his bat. Adell is expected to open the season in the minors, so he'll likely get the chance to demonstrate how effective his adjustments have been before he returns to the big leagues.

Angels' Jo Adell: Likely to start in minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Angels' acquisition of Dexter Fowler means it's likely that Adell will start the 2021 season in the minor leagues, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Registerreports.

Manager Joe Maddon had made clear earlier in the offseason that he believed Adell had to refine his game in the minor leagues. However, now the team has the depth in its outfield to make Adell's demotion a reality, as the starting outfield projects to be Justin Upton, Mike Trout and Fowler. Adell struggled mightily in his first taste of big-league pitching, hitting just .161/.212/.266 across 132 plate appearances.

Angels' Jo Adell: Needs more time in minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adell is expected to spend more time in the minors this season, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Manager Joe Maddon stated Friday that Adell still has more developing to do in the minors, and it's hard to disagree with that assessment. The 21-year-old didn't have much success at the Triple-A level in 2019, posting a .264/.321/.355 slash line (good for just a 67 wRC+) in 27 games for Salt Lake, but he was called on nonetheless for his 38-game big-league debut last year. He had even less success at the highest level, hitting a miserable .161/.212/.266 while striking out in 41.7 percent of his plate appearances. Adell remains quite young and quite talented, but he might not get the chance to display that talent in the majors until later in the season.
