Joan Adon

24-Year-Old PitcherSP
2023 Fantasy Outlook
Adon was a surprise addition to the Nationals' 2022 Opening Day rotation, but he struggled to a 7.10 ERA and was not seen again at the major-league level after July 7. Dress in layers if you're to visit Adon's Statcast page -- there is a lot of frigid blue, showing bottom-10 percentile ranks in xERA, xBA, xSLG, Barrel%, BB% and Whiff%. Things got better with Triple-A Rochester from a run-prevention standpoint (4.68 ERA), but Adon remained far too generous with the free passes (5.1 BB/9). Mostly a fastball-curveball pitcher last season, Adon brings good velocity with the heater. The Nationals may need him to eat innings in 2023 after he cleared 100 frames between the two levels a season ago. The 24-year-old remains on the 40-man roster as of late December. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a contract with the Nationals in July of 2016.
Dispatched to Triple-A
PWashington Nationals
July 10, 2022
The Nationals optioned Adon to Triple-A Rochester on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Adon will head back to the minors after he picked up his MLB-leading 12th loss of the season Thursday, when he was charged with four earned runs on six hits and three walks over four innings against the Phillies. The Nationals activated reliever Hunter Harvey (forearm) from the 60-day injured list to take over Adon's spot on the 26-man active roster, but the team will still need to find a pitcher to replace Adon in the rotation when his next turn comes up in Saturday's game versus Atlanta.

Stat Review
How does Joan Adon compare to other starting pitchers?
This section compares his stats with all starting pitcher seasons from the previous three seasons (minimum 120 innings)*. The bar represents the player's percentile rank.

* Exit Velocity, Barrels/BBE %, Balls Hit 95+ MPH %, and Spin Rate are benchmarked against 2019 data (min 120 IP). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.
