2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Though Adam showed only minimal growth in his jump to Double-A in 2013, he still remains relatively high on the Royals' prospect list. He posted a solid 7.9 K/9 over 144 innings and dropped his HR/9 to 0.8, but seemed to struggle more with his command and saw his walk rate nearly double from the year before. Following the season, the team sent him to the Arizona Fall League to face stronger competition and while he fixed some of his command issues, he found himself victimized by the long ball once again. Obviously a work in progress, Adam still projects as an eventual middle-of-the-rotation hurler whose big, strong frame should allow him to eat plenty of innings. The club may start him off at Double-A again, but he should earn himself a promotion to the Triple-A level before the season is through.

2013

Adam was a fifth-round pick in 2010 and has quickly ascended the prospect ranks in Kansas City. He projects as a middle-of-the-rotation starter who should be a true innings-eater given his big, strong frame. He threw 158 innings in High-A last year and posted a 3.53 ERA with 123 strikeouts to just 36 walks. He will likely start the season at Double-A Northwest Arkansas in 2013, but looks like he could still be another year or two away from having a major league impact.
