Los Angeles Angels AA
2019 Fantasy Outlook
The toolsiest hitter in the 2017 MLB draft, Adell's physical gifts were too much for Low-A and High-A pitchers to handle in his first full season. He has immense raw power, plus speed for center field and a big enough arm for right. There is still work to do with his approach, and he has not been asked to make many adjustments yet, given his rapid ascent from Low-A to Double-A. Adell struck out 25.2% of the time across his three stops and over 50% of his hits at High-A and Double-A went to the pull side, so it is unrealistic to expect Adell to hit much better than .260 against big-league pitching in 2019 or 2020. That said, he won't turn 20 until April 8, so he is well ahead of schedule and has plenty of time to make the necessary adjustments against upper-level pitching. He has the talent to be a 30-20 hitter pretty early in his big-league career, and could turn into a 40-20 monster if he reaches his ceiling. Read Past Outlooks

Heads to Double-A
OFLos Angeles Angels  AA
June 3, 2019
The Angels transferred Adell (hamstring/ankle) from High-A Inland Empire to Double-A Mobile on Sunday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
The transaction indicates that the Angels were satisfied with how Adell checked out both at the plate and in the field during his six-game assignment in the California League. After excelling at three different minor-league stops in 2018, Adell's ascent was stunted by the Grade 1 left hamstring strain and Grade 2 right ankle sprain he sustained in March. The 20-year-old was fortunately able to make a full recovery from the injuries after a two-month rehab process and could have an outside chance at reaching the big leagues in the second half of 2019. Any potential promotion this season would likely be contingent on Adell trimming down his strikeout rate and the Angels remaining in the thick of the playoff race.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
There were widespread concerns about Adell’s plate discipline and aptitude for the game prior to the 2017 draft, but he quieted the doubters while showing off monster tools, and now looks like an easy top five fantasy prospect from that class. His plus raw power and plus speed were on full display in the AZL and Pioneer League, but most importantly, he made contact at an acceptable clip. He actually improved his strikeout rate from 24.2 percent to 18.9 percent after a promotion to Orem, where his .463 BABIP muddled his overall production, but the main thing we wanted to see in 2017 was a salvageable approach, and he delivered in that respect. He pulls the ball a little too much, but it’s an understandable imperfection for an 18-year-old power hitter with a lightning-quick bat. A shoulder injury limited him to DH duty in his debut, but he has all the ingredients to be a special center fielder. There may be growing pains this year in the Midwest League, but Adell has the superstar upside, so patience is encouraged.
