SoCal ProCase:

Body: 5-10, 180 pounds. Adams has a great catchers build. Has a physical presence, but is still very quick with his actions behind the dish. He has room to build off of present strength. Can still tend to look raw behind the plate due to his physical ability, but with some cleaning up could have the potential to be a plus defender at the next level. 

Hit: He stands upright and slightly open with some slight bend in his back knee. He lands softly on his front toe and is short and direct to the baseball (78% on plane efficiency). Lands on a firm front side. Has a right center approach and does a good job of letting the ball travel. 

Power: Adam’s has the powerful lower half of a typical catcher, and showed the potential to be able to drive the ball with authority. His exit velocity got tracked up to 92 mph during his practice and was doing it to all parts of the field. Rotational acceleration max of 17.3gs shows potential. 

Field: Advanced tools behind the plate with room to grow. Good lateral movement while blocking with soft hands. Clean and fast transfers, gains good ground towards second on throwdowns. 

Arm: RH C - Short and quick arm action. With a pop time ranges of 1.97-2.09, he showed great consistency with his throw downs and was able to put his throws right in the tag zone. 

Run: 7.2 60-yard dash on laser time. Keeps his head and chest down. Arm swings have minimal movement. Strong legs with solid strides provide his speed. 

Summary: Entering his final season, Adam’s is looking to come out and catch the eyes of college scouts. He is a ballplayer that is always trying to be the hardest worker on the field and having a player like that behind the plate is essential to being able to handle a staff. The strength and quickness that he possesses as a catcher is not easily found, and is sure to be an asset to any team in need of catcher depth. His work ethic and passion for playing truly stands out on the field, and he is primed for a breakout season his senior year.


9/23/18 - Rising Stars Showcase - Five-foot-8, 165-pounds, medium/large frame with strength throughout the body particularly in the lower half where his thighs are thick. Behind the plate Adams shows a quiet setup with soft hands and flexibility in the hips with excellent footwork. Got better the more bullpens he caught throughout the day. Works very well with the ball in the dirt - shows quickness getting from knees when blocking to the throwing position. Arm is strong with accuracy from a ¾ slot. Sticks the fastball well. Doesn't give away pitches. When hitting Adams has projectable power. Engages the lower half well and uses it well in the swing. Has fast hands and very good feel for the barrel. Barrel explodes through the zone on a consistent plane. Shows present gap-to-gap skills with some pull side power. At shortstop his athleticism helps him get to balls quickly showing range to both sides. Exchanges are clean and quick and arm is accurate.
