  • Angels' Jo Adell: Still mashing in minors

    Through 12 games with Triple-A Salt Lake this season, Adell is slashing .347/.448/.939 with eight home runs, five doubles, 14 runs and 17 RBI.

    Adell set a Salt Lake franchise record by homering in six straight games from April 4-9. Though that streak came to an end with an 0-for-4 performance April 11, the outfielder bounced back with another homer in the following game, and he's gone a combined 5-for-11 in his previous two contests heading into Friday. Adell's power surge has come with plenty of strikeouts -- he's fanned multiple times in six of his past eight games -- but the 2017 first-round draft pick is certainly turning heads with his fast start to the campaign. There's a good possibility that he'll make his way back up to the majors at some point this season, but it would likely take an injury for him to garner significant playing time in the majors with Taylor Ward, Mike Trout and Hunter Renfroe locked in as the Angels' starting outfield.

  • Angels' Jo Adell: Off to hot start at Triple-A

    Adell is slashing .350/.500/.950 with three home runs, three doubles, six runs and nine RBI through six games with Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Adell was unable to make the Angels' Opening Day roster out of spring training, but he's making an early push to get back to the majors. He's reached base in all six games that he's played in the minors so far this season and has homered in three straight contests. One of Adell's biggest struggles to this point in his career has been making contact -- he struck out at a 37.7 percent clip over 284 big-league plate appearances last season -- but he's shown dramatic improvement thus far in 2023, striking out just four times while drawing five walks over 26 trips to the dish. Adell is a few years removed from being one of the game's top prospects, and even if he does receive a promotion soon, he isn't likely to have an everyday role with Mike Trout, Taylor Ward and Hunter Renfroe locked in as the Angels' starting outfielders.

  • Angels' Jo Adell: Optioned to Triple-A

    Adell was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake by the Angels on Friday, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Both Adell and Mickey Moniak were informed they wouldn't be making the Opening Day roster. The 23-year-old hit just .229 over 51 plate appearances in the Cactus League coming into Friday, but he did homer four times with a .500 slugging percentage. Adell still has time to develop into a quality player, but nothing he's shown thus far at the highest level suggests that leap is coming soon.

  • Angels' Jo Adell: Likely bound for minors

    Adell is expected to begin the season at Triple-A, reports. He's hitting .250 with two home runs in a .734 OPS this spring.

    Adell had a problematic 37.7% strikeout rate last season and it's been a similar story this spring. He has 16 strikeouts and just two walks in 39 plate appearances this spring.

  • Angels' Jo Adell: Hits eighth home run

    Adell went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in a 4-1 victory over the Rangers on Friday.

    Adell homered off Glenn Otto in the second inning for his eighth long ball of the season. It has been a disappointing year for Adell, who has struggled immensely to get on base and has found himself on the short side of an outfield platoon due to his .263 OBP and weak fielding. The silver lining is that Adell has set career highs in at-bats and homers and is still only 23 years old.

  • Angels' Jo Adell: Fades into platoon role

    Adell is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Guardians.

    Adell will take a seat for the fourth time in six games and appears to have moved into the short side of a platoon in left field with the lefty-hitting Mickey Moniak, who is serving as the Angels' leadoff man for the second day in a row. Since the All-Star break, Adell has turned in a .609 OPS while striking out at a 38.1 percent clip, which has made it tough for the Angels to justify giving him everyday playing time.
