RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Jason Adam.
Despite a fastball that can reach the high-90s and decent strikeout rates, Adam struggled for a second consecutive season as starter with a 5.03 ERA at Double-A. He was then moved to the bullpen at Triple-A and had success with a 2.35 ERA and 11:4 K:BB ratio in 15.1 innings, which likely prompted the Twins to trade for him in August. Adam has had decent strikeout rates and good control in his minor league career, but has given up too many hits. A change of scenery and a move to the bullpen could turn his career around. He'll likely begin the season at Triple-A Rochester.
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.
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.
