To undergo Tommy John surgery
OFChicago White Sox  A+
Elbow
July 10, 2018
Adolfo will undergo Tommy John surgery in the coming weeks and will be out until at least next spring.
ANALYSIS
Tommy John surgery carries a shorter timetable for position players than pitchers, and according to Scott Merkin of MLB.com, Adolfo will be out 8-to-10 months, so he could return next March, if he has the surgery soon and returns on the short side of that estimate. He is one of the White Sox's top hitting prospects, and had been dealing with this elbow issue all year, but only recently had a setback in his throwing program. He should still be rostered in most serious dynasty leagues; after all, Twins outfield prospect Alex Kirilloff underwent the procedure a couple years ago and is now one of the top prospects in the game. Adolfo, 21, hit .283/.368/.466 with 11 home runs and a 27.2 percent strikeout rate in 334 plate appearances this year for High-A Winston-Salem.

2016 Fantasy Outlook
Adolfo was one of Chicago's biggest splashes in the Latin American market in recent years, signing a contract worth $1.6 million in 2013. Two seasons later, and he is still just entering his age-19 season and still virtually all projection. He has yet to escape the AZL, and has yet to learn how to take a walk. Fortunately, he still has time to learn, and has the raw tools to eventually turn into a power corner outfielder. Adolfo had surgery in August to repair a fractured fibula, but he should be ready for spring training and to play out all of 2016 in the low minors.
