19-Year-Old OutfielderOF
2019 Fantasy Outlook
The most athletic player in the 2018 draft, Adams was a big-time D-1 wide receiver recruit, but the Angels gave him a $4.1 million bonus (the 12th highest figure in the class), which was sufficient to lure him away from his commitment to UNC. He is an 80-grade runner with plus raw power, but as with many two-sport prep hitters, the development of his hit tool will be what determines his eventual fantasy value. Unfortunately a broken jaw in mid-August ended his season, cutting short a fantastic nine-game run following a promotion to the Pioneer League. His performance in 20 AZL games didn't necessarily warrant a promotion, but the Angels wanted to keep Adams, D'Shawn Knowles and Jeremiah Jackson together, and the latter two needed a challenge. Adams' premium tools give him a chance to have a Jo Adell-esque ascent up prospect rankings in his first full season, but that should be seen as the best-case scenario -- he could also struggle to adjust to Low-A pitching.

ANALYSIS
This is a typical assignment for a 19-year-old position player who was taken in the first round of the previous year's draft, but it's noteworthy with Adams because he is still a pretty raw hitter, and this assignment should give him a challenge. Don't panic if he doesn't get off to a great start against Low-A pitchers, but if he were to have a seamless transition, that would be an excellent sign.
