RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Two years removed from shoulder surgery, Adams pitched very well at Triple-A Columbus in 2014 and earned a couple of brief looks with the Indians in the second half of the season. Walks plagued him upon his return to the mound in 2013 (4.8 BB/9), but Adams is a hard-throwing righty who works mostly with a mid-90s fastball (average 96.5 mph) and slider, while mixing in the occasional changeup. At Triple-A, Adams struck out nearly one quarter of the batters that he faced, although that rate plummeted during his limited time in Cleveland. At age-28, he'll compete for a spot in the bullpen during spring training, but Adams may face an uphill battle to crack the Opening Day roster in what has become a very solid relief corps.

2014

After losing his entire 2012 season to shoulder surgery, Adams returned to action at Double-A Akron and showed a continued ability to miss bats working as a reliever (12.4 K/9). A major hurdle in reaching the big leagues, however, will be cutting back on his free passes, which have been an increasing problem each year going back to his time as a starter at High-A Kinston back in 2010. Adams offers a power arm from the right side capable of making an impact in the late innings, but he may have to prove he can retire hitters at Columbus before getting an opportunity in the Cleveland bullpen.
