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.

August 26, 2018
Adams is currently dealing with a broken jaw, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
ANALYSIS
Adams' jaw is wired shut, so it's safe to say he won't be getting into minor-league action for a bit. No timetable for his return has come forth, though he's expected to have the wires removed from his mouth Friday, according to Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com. It's also encouraging that he is able to continue working out while he's sidelined with this injury.
