November 20, 2020
Adams was outrighted to Triple-A Omaha on Friday.
ANALYSIS
Adams made six relief appearances during his first season with the Royals in 2020, but he was inefficient once again, allowing nine earned runs on 15 hits and no walks while striking out six over 8.2 innings. He'll be cast off the 40-man roster to make room for a prospect who will be protected from the Rule 5 draft.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
It was a little surprising when Adams, who compiled a 2.45 ERA and 1.08 WHIP across 150.1 innings at Double-A and Triple-A, was not summoned late last season for an audition in the big-league rotation. However, despite having success against lefties in the minors (.198 AVG against at Triple-A), there were reasons to think he may have been pummeled by opposite-handed hitters in the big leagues. He has a plus fastball and plus slider, which allows him to keep righties in check, but he lacks a quality third pitch to neutralize left-handed hitters. Indeed, he struck out just 36 lefties in 51.1 innings at Triple-A, compared to 67 righties in 64 innings. Clearly his changeup and curveball still need some refining, but with above-average control, he still projects as a No. 3 or No. 4 starter in time. Given his potential splits, he could make his big-league debut in the bullpen, but if he makes the necessary adjustments at Triple-A, he could be pitching in the big-league rotation in the first half.
A closer during his time at Dallas Baptist University, Adams converted to a starting role in his second professional season, and the 22-year-old found little resistance between High-A and Double-A. The 6-foot righty posted a 2.65 ERA and 73:15 K:BB in 57.2 innings at High-A, and the jump to Double-A proved no real challenge. Opposing batters hit a putrid .169 against him in 2016, a mark which led the minors. In fact, that mark was the second-lowest in the minors since 1993, according to Baseball America. Adams has a mid-90s heater along with three plus secondary offerings and a sturdy frame. Adams has the chance to see the big leagues by the end of 2017, though will likely start the season at Triple-A.
