2023 Fantasy Outlook
There was no outlook written for Jordyn Adams in 2023. Check out the latest news below for more on his current fantasy value.

Reassigned to MiLB camp
OFLos Angeles Angels  AAA
March 24, 2023
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.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Adams has developed exactly as the Angels hoped he would over the past year. His 80-grade speed and elite athleticism have been there the whole time, but he has started utilizing his physical tools more in games. He made several home run robberies while hitting five home runs in 200 at-bats as one of the team's youngest players at the alternate site. Adams cut his groundball rate to a still high 50.6% in 2019 and will need to continue to work on getting the ball in the air going forward. One thing that sets him apart from most two-sport first rounders (No. 17 overall pick in 2018) is that he has always logged high walk rates in pro ball, which will help his case for hitting atop the order some day. He may open his age-21 season at High-A, but could spend the bulk of the year at Double-A if he picks up where he left off in 2020.
Adams has 80-grade speed and a career 11.6 BB% -- skills that could allow him to be a leadoff hitter who steals 30-plus bases annually. As with most two-sport athletes who are bought away from college football scholarships ($4.1 million bonus in 2018), the big unknown is whether Adams will hit enough for the rest of his tools to play. Injuries have limited him to 138 pro games, during which he has hit .259 with a 23.3 K%. His strikeout rate is as good as anyone could have hoped, but he has struggled to get to his above-average raw power (.371 career SLG) and is just 21-for-30 (70%) on stolen-base attempts. After logging unacceptably high groundball rates in 2018, he managed a 50.6 GB% at Low-A, which is still higher than ideal, but manageable for a 20-year-old hitter who is still developing. His baseball skills are still quite raw, but Adams is talented enough that if something clicks, his stock could soar.
The most athletic player in the 2018 draft, Adams was a big-time D-1 wide receiver recruit, but the Angels gave him a $4.1 million bonus (the 12th highest figure in the class), which was sufficient to lure him away from his commitment to UNC. He is an 80-grade runner with plus raw power, but as with many two-sport prep hitters, the development of his hit tool will be what determines his eventual fantasy value. Unfortunately a broken jaw in mid-August ended his season, cutting short a fantastic nine-game run following a promotion to the Pioneer League. His performance in 20 AZL games didn't necessarily warrant a promotion, but the Angels wanted to keep Adams, D'Shawn Knowles and Jeremiah Jackson together, and the latter two needed a challenge. Adams' premium tools give him a chance to have a Jo Adell-esque ascent up prospect rankings in his first full season, but that should be seen as the best-case scenario -- he could also struggle to adjust to Low-A pitching.
