Jo Adell News
Los Angeles Angels outfielder Jo Adell (oblique) has resumed hitting at the team's spring training facilities in Arizona, and the team is hopeful that he can return this season. The 24-year-old hasn't appeared in a game since July 8 and was later moved to the 60-day injured list. "It's gonna take him a minute to ramp him up to where he can see live pitching," manager Phil Nevin said on Sept. 2. "Hopefully we can get him back at some point." With the Angels out of playoff contention at this point, there's no reason for the organization to rush Adell back into the fold. He's eligible to return from the IL on Sept. 7, but it's unlikely he'll be ready to return without playing in minor-league rehab games. Adell performed well at Triple-A Salt Lake, but he had six strikeouts in 14 plate appearances for the Angels before his injury.
Los Angeles Angels third baseman Anthony Rendon (shin) and outfielder Jo Adell (oblique) have been placed on the 10-day injured list, retroactive to July 11. Rendon has been sidelined since July 4 due to a bruised right shin. The organization was hopeful he'd be ready after the All-Star break, but sadly that wasn't the case. Luis Rengifo is handling third base in his absence on Friday. Adell suffered a left-oblique strain during Saturday's game and missed Sunday's game because of it. The team has not given a timetable for Adell's return to the field. In a corresponding move, outfielder/infielder Trey Cabbage has been recalled to the active roster. The Angels also outrighted infielder David Fletcher to Triple-A Salt Lake.
Los Angeles Angels outfielder Jo Adell (oblique) was forced from Saturday's tilt with the Los Angeles Dodgers due to left oblique discomfort. He will undergo further tests in a few days to determine the severity of the setback. It's a tough blow for the former first-rounder, who is getting an opportunity to shine in the major leagues with Mike Trout (hand) sidelined for several weeks. Oblique issues are notoriously tricky, so an injured-list stint cannot be ruled out. Stay tuned for another update on Adell, who said following the game it may be "too early" to tell how much time he may miss. The All-Star break comes at an opportune juncture for Adell to recover, in any event. The 24-year-old is 3-for-13 with a home run and three RBI so far this season.
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.
