Jo Adell News
Los Angeles Angels outfielder Jo Adell (abdomen) was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left abdominal strain on Wednesday. Jose Rojas was recalled from Triple-A in a corresponding move. After the transaction, Angels manager Joe Maddon told reporters that he doubts Adell will play again this year. The 22-year-old had a much better showing in the majors in 2021 than he did in 2020. Over 35 games this year, he slashed .246/.295/.408 with four home runs, 26 RBI and 17 runs. He can be dropped in all redraft leagues.
Los Angeles Angels outfielder Jo Adell (back) is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Chicago White Sox, Jack Harris of the LA Times reported. The 22-year-old centerfielder has missed two straight games after crashing into a wall over the weekend and is considered to be day-to-day with a sore back. No doubt Adell is eager to get back into the lineup since he has been red-hot at the plate lately, slashing .346/.393/.769 over his last seven games with three home runs, eight RBI, one stolen base, and five runs scored on nine hits. Brandon Marsh is slated to fill in at center field and bat seventh against Chicago.
Los Angeles Angels outfielder Jo Adell has finally been delivering on his promise at the plate lately, slashing .291/.339/.509 over his last 15 games. He has a nine-game hitting streak going, but he'll take a seat on the bench Sunday against the Houston Astros as the Angels run Juan Lagares out to right field in Adell's stead. Adell is a top option in keeper and dynasty formats, and he just might be a redraft contributor the rest of the way if he can keep up his hot hitting. Look for him to be back in the lineup Tuesday against the White Sox.
Los Angeles Angels outfielder Jo Adell had a rough MLB debut in 2020. Adell played in 38 games, slashing .161/.212/.266 with three home runs and a 41.7% strikeout rate across 132 plate appearances. The good news for Adell is that these struggles follow a trend that has consistently resulted in improvement throughout his minor-league career. Unlike some prospects who seem to effortlessly ascend through the minors, Adell has endured growing pains with each promotion. In 2018, Adell slashed .290/.345/.546 with 12 homers, a 135 wRC+, and a 12.7% swinging strike rate in 262 plate appearances in High-A. His 71 plate appearances at Double-A that year yielded a .238/.324/.429 slash line, 115 wRC+, and 18.4% swinging strike rate. He drastically improved upon those numbers in 2019, logging a 173 wRC+, a career-best 10.4% walk rate, and his lowest strikeout clip since rookie ball in 182 plate appearances. Then, he got promoted and struggled again: His swinging strike rate jumped from 12.6% in Double-A to 19% in Triple-A, and his production dropped off accordingly. The lack of a minor-league season in 2020 prevented Adell from making the improvements we've grown accustomed to in his development, instead thrusting him into the fire of MLB competition when he clearly would have benefited from another couple months or so in Triple-A. The Angels signed Dexter Fowler back in February to serve as their third outfielder withMike Trout and Justin Upton, so Adell will begin the season in the minors, which was always the plan. Manager Joe Maddon said the 21-year-old needed more time in the lower levels back in December so this isn't a surprise. He'll continue his growth and development in Triple-A before another full-time call-up to the majors. For fantasy purposes, he can be targeted as a bench stash in the later rounds of redraft leagues. He remains among the most valuable prospects to roster in dynasty formats.
