8/9/16 - Showed off one of his plus tools today when a single was lined hard into right field in the sixth inning. There were runners on first and second with the White Sox up by two. With two outs, the runner rounding third and scoring didn’t mean much so Adell came up firing to third. It was a missile and right on target, but just a hair late. However, the umpire called the runner out. In all honesty, he was safe, but that didn’t make the throw any less impressive.
8/8/16 - Hit the ball hard twice in two at-bats, launching a two-run home run in his first that would have cleared the old dimensions at Blair Field. In his second at-bat, he was robbed of a base hit when he smoked a ball at the third baseman, who made a lucky pick and got the out at first.
8/1/16 - Pitched the last inning for the Royals and was 88-92 with a 77-80 slider. He allowed a hit and struck out one. He also started in left field and got one at-bat. After working a walk, he squared up a lineout to center in his new at-bat, getting robbed of a base hit
7/14/16 - Raw in many facets of the game, which contributed to him misplaying a fly ball, but he was able to recover and show off his premium athleticism in the process. He charged too hard and nearly let the ball get over his head, but was able to stop, reach back over his head and pull it in for an out. He was 2-for-3 at the plate with a run scored and stolen base. He was out on his front foot and made just OK contact. He got down the line in 4.2-4.3 seconds.
6/25/16 - Closed things out and threw a higher percentage of strikes than in his first outing. He tossed 1.2 innings, allowing a hit and a walk while striking out two. He was 91-93, touching 94 a few times, and threw an 82-84 breaking ball for strikes.
6/22/16 - High-level two-way athlete. The 6-foot-3, 198-pounder pitched in relief, coming out with 93-mph fastballs and a sharp 79-82 slider, which he leaned on heavily. In 1.1 innings, Adell surrendered four hits, including a home run, three runs, with no walks and no strikeouts. At the plate he went 0-for-4. On Tuesday Adell ran a 6.4 60.
6/21/16 - With his lean and athletic 6-foot-3, 198-pound frame, the Louisville recruit certainly looks the part. His BP session was inconsistent, as his timing was off and he got jammed some. But when his timing was on, the ball jumped. He has some length to his swing, but flashed solid bat speed and flashed power to his pull side. At least five balls left the yard in his four rounds
8/20/15 - Showed a loose swing and the ball jumped off his bat. He’s an athletic, physical specimen at 6-foot-3, 190 pounds with room to physically mature.
7/24/14 - Adell pitched on the second day of Team USA's 15U Trials, allowing just one walk while striking out three in two innings of work. He sat 82-84 and gets some down angle on his fastball thanks to a high arm slot. His curveball is advanced for his age, sitting 71-72 with good 11-to-5 shape and depth.
2/16/14 - 6-foot-1, 185-pound prospect put on a show not only as an outfielder but as a pitcher as well (we’ll take a look at that in pitcher write-ups).  Adell showed athletic actions in the outfield with 87 mph arm strength.  At the plate, showed elite bat speed when he tied a PBR Kentucky record with 99 mph exit velocity off the tee.  Hits from a wide setup with minimal stride, good use of lower half, has a big arm bar which creates length in his swing but still gets through the zone consistently with plus bat speed, ran 7.06 60 yard dash, shows big power for his age and will continue to develop into elite level prospect, featured in standout OF article from the event.
