Adams was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Monday.
Adams has appeared in seven contests for the Angels in September, going 3-for-25 with one RBI, one stolen base and one run scored. He'll be sent to the minors to make room for Michael Stefanic, who was recalled Monday.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Jordyn Adams: Steps out of lineup
Adams is not in the lineup for Sunday's game versus the Tigers, Erica Weston of Bally Sports West reports.
Adams started the last six games and will head to the bench after going 2-for-22 with a run and nine strikeouts. Jared Walsh will man right field and bat cleanup Sunday for the Halos.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Jordyn Adams: Recalled from Triple-A
The Angels recalled Adams from Triple-A Salt Lake on Friday.
Adams was just optioned to the minors Thursday, but the Angels need him again after losing Mickey Moniak (back) to the 10-day injured list. Adams has gone 5-for-32 (.156) through his first 15 major-league games this season, but the 23-year-old stands to receive regular starts down the stretch in the Halos' outfield.... See More ...

Angels' Jordyn Adams: Optioned to Salt Lake

Adams has gone 5-for-32 (.156) with zero extra-base hits and 14 strikeouts through his first 15 major-league games this season. Kyren Paris was also optioned back to Salt Lake on Thursday as Jared Walsh and David Fletcher return to the big-league roster.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Jordyn Adams: Nabs fourth straight start
Adams will start in left field and bat seventh in Wednesday's game against the Mariners, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
He'll pick up a fourth consecutive start after going 1-for-11 with a run scored in the previous three contests. Despite the recent increase in playing time, Adams could soon be at risk of moving into a bench role if Mickey Moniak (back) is cleared to return to the lineup during this weekend's series versus the Tigers....

Angels' Jordyn Adams: Recalled from Salt Lake
The Angels recalled Adams from Triple-A Salt Lake on Friday.
Adams had a rough time at the plate during his first MLB stint, going just 2-for-14 with six strikeouts across 10 games. Nonetheless, he'll return to Anaheim to give the Angels another option in the outfield. Davis Daniel was optioned to Salt Lake in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Jordyn Adams: Sent down Sunday
Adams was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Sunday.
Adams was called up by the Angels in early August, but he had inconsistent playing time and went just 2-for-14 with six strikeouts in 10 games during his first taste of major-league action. Mike Trout (wrist) is closing in on a return from the injured list, so Adams will head back to the minors.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Jordyn Adams: Has rough big-league debut
Adams went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts and also struggled defensively in Wednesday's loss to Atlanta.
Adams saw his first action as a major-leaguer, starting in center field and batting ninth against Atlanta. In addition to fanning twice in four plate appearances, the 23-year-old also made two ill-advised throws that allowed a runner to take an extra base and misplayed a line drive off the bat of Michael Harris II that was ruled a double. Adams has a reputation as a good defender, so he'll almost certainly be better in that regard, though he's struggled with making contact throughout his minor-league tenure and may have a hard time overcoming that challenge while up in the majors....

Angels' Jordyn Adams: Contract selected from Triple-A
Adams' contract was selected from Triple-A Salt Lake prior to Tuesday's game in Atlanta.
The 23-year-old outfielder's bat may not be ready for success against big-league pitching, but Adams is a strong defensive center fielder. He slashed .264/.351/.465 with 13 home runs and 37 steals in 89 games at Triple-A, although in the Pacific Coast League that still equates to below-league-average production (93 wRC+). Adams hasn't been a league-average hitter since a nine-game run at High-A in 2019. He had a 27.7 percent strikeout rate at Triple-A and turns 24 in October.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Jordyn Adams: Reassigned to MiLB camp
The Angels reassigned Adams to minor-league camp Friday.
The 23-year-old outfielder reached Double-A for the first time last season, slashing .249/.326/.359 through 236 plate appearances. He certainly turned some heads this spring with a 1.004 OPS and four steals, but there remains more for Adams to do before he's ready for Triple-A and the majors -- bringing down his 29.7 percent strikeout rate would be a good start....

Angels' Jordyn Adams: Moved up to Double-A
Adams was promoted to Double-A Rocket City on Thursday.
Adams spent the first three months of the campaign with High-A Tri-City, slashing .228/.308/.306 with zero homers, 22 RBI and 18 stolen bases over 249 plate appearances. Despite the mediocre slash line, he notably reduced his strikeout rate to 21.7 percent after finishing with an ugly 37.8 percent rate in 307 plate appearances at the same level last season. Adams has started off well in his first stint at Double-A, going 5-for-8 with a run and two RBI over his first two games.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Jordyn Adams: Strikeouts down at High-A
Adams (ankle) returned to action Wednesday for High-A Tri-City, going 1-for-5 with two RBI and one steal.
He missed a week with a minor ankle injury. Adams is hitting .381/.417/.524 with zero home runs and two steals through five games. Most importantly, he has only struck out three times in 21 at-bats after logging a 37.8 K% at this level last year. Look for him to get the bump to Double-A in the coming weeks if he keeps producing.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Jordyn Adams: Dealing with ankle injury
Adams was removed from High-A Tri City's game Wednesday due to an ankle injury, Jared Tims of Talkin' Halos reports.
Adams struggled in 71 games for Tri City last season with a .600 OPS, but he entered Wednesday's contest 7-for-16 with four RBI, four runs and a stolen base through four games this year. It's unclear if the 22-year-old will require a stint on the injured list.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Jordyn Adams: Enduring brutal campaign at High-A
Through 25 games for High-A Tri-City, Adams is hitting just .186/.266/.268 with one homer, seven steals, 13 RBI and 12 runs.
Worse yet, he's struck out 40 times in 109 plate appearances -- a 36.7 percent clip -- with observers such as FanGraphs' Brendan Gawlowski saying that he looks lost at the dish. Adams has elite speed and the tools to be a quality defender, but his power hasn't manifested as the Angels would have hoped and his hit tool is proving to be a major issue. The plus side is that he's still just 21 years old and an impressive athlete, and perhaps the lower-leg injury that sidelined him earlier this season is to blame for his timing (or lack thereof) at the plate, but unless he turns things around, he's likely to tumble out of the top 100 on most prospect lists....

Angels' Jordyn Adams: Activated off minor-league IL
Adams was activated off the minor-league injured list Tuesday after being sidelined for over a month due to a lower leg injury, independent baseball writer Taylor Blake Ward reports.
Prior to his activation, Adams hadn't played since May 6, though he didn't officially go on the injured list until May 29. He started Tuesday and went 1-for-4 in his return.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Jordyn Adams: Joining major-league camp
Adams was invited to the Angels' big-league spring training camp on Thursday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Adams has plenty of potential, but he's unlikely to be competing for an Opening Day roster spot just yet. He's played just nine games at the High-A level, so he'll presumably spend this year in the upper minors before pushing for a big-league spot next season.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Jordyn Adams: Part of 60-man roster
Adams will be part of the Angels' 60-man roster.
While seemingly unlikely to grab significant at-bats at the MLB level this season, Adams -- who is not on the 40-man roster -- will still be able to work on his development in what is looking like the absence of a minor-league season. The 20-year-old's highest league level in 2019 was High-A, but he did receive multiple promotions last year and recorded a .720 OPS across three levels.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Jordyn Adams: Likely to be part of player pool
Adams is expected to be included in the Angels' 60-man player pool, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
Adams is considered one of the organization's top prospects despite slashing a ho-hum .250/.346/.358 in Low-A ball last season. The 20-year-old has demonstrated a knack for taking a walk and has plenty of speed, and inclusion in the player pool should give him an opportunity to develop as a hitter with the minor-league season all but certain to be canceled....
