Scouting Report: Adams’ delivery is smooth and repeatable, with some effort. The arm action is stiff at times but remains at a high ¾ release and he does a good job of working downhill. There is an upward trend in regards to his fastball as is it is currently 78-82 mph, that will occasionally have some arm side run. Change-up is  between 70-76 mph, with good fade and is tough to pick up. Curveball has 11-to-5 break and shows the potential to be sharp when located down in the zone. Adams’ easy delivery, athletic build and continued upward trend will make him a prospect to keep an eye on in the future. He runs a 6.91 60, and has an exit velo of 88 mph. At the plate, Adams starts in a balanced position, linear load in back leg, minimal hand movement, to tap, short stride, quick hands, level path to extension, solid consistent contact, power potential. On the infield, fluid actions, soft hands, clean glove to hand exchange, quick release, accurate throws, 84 mph positional velo.
