We are now showing minor league games at position.

Clearly, Adell is being prepped to play on one side of Trout or the other.

From BP today...

1. Jo Adell, OF
DOB: 4/8/99
Height/Weight: 6’3” / 215 lbs
Bats/Throws: 
R/R
Drafted/Acquired: 
Drafted 10th overall in the 2017 draft (Ballard HS, Louisville, KY); signed for $4,376,800.
Previous Ranking(s): 
#1 (Org), #2 (Top 101)
2019 Stats: 
.280/.333/.560, 2 HR, 0 SB in 6 games for High-A Inland Empire; .311/.399/.587, 10 HR, 8 SB in 46 games for Double-A Mobile; .264/.321/.355 0 HR, 1 SB in 27 games for Triple-A Salt Lake

The Report: There aren’t many pages of Adell’s prospect story left to read that aren’t already slathered in drool, and he will enter the 2020 season perched again—for a final time—among the best couple prospects in the entire world. That he is even still eligible for this list resulted not from a lack of level-appropriate offensive prowess, but from lost developmental time after a gruesome leg injury in the spring and the negative subsequent effects that shelving allegedly had on his ability to track fly balls in a corner spot. This is a true five-tool talent, however, and those types don’t wallow well or for long against Triple-A competition. He’ll flank Mike Trout in Anaheim rather than supplant him in center, but the glove and speed for a theoretical up-the-middle assignment remain. The bat is now seasoned and cooked to perfection, and he’ll have as much of a chance as any rookie to hit the ground hitting against the best pitchers in the game. On-base skills, power, and value-added baserunning and defense is some kind of package.

OFP: 70 / All-Star outfielder

Variance: Low, at least insofar as any young player’s risk factor can be discounted. Loads of talent and plenty of track record make him one of the “safer” high-end prospects around, and it would be quite a shock to the system if a healthy Adell does not go on to at least a first-division career. 

Major league ETA: 2020, hopefully on Opening Day.

Now that we have the minor league stats, it's hard not to notice that the two-month dominance in Double A was followed by 27 homerless games in Triple A. At Salt Lake City.

If you're looking for a reason to visit Phoenix in October, the No. 2 prospect in Baseball America's final update this season of the top 100 is...


Jo Adell

AngelsOF
Notes:

ETA: 2020
Preseason rank: 6
Hit: 55: | Power: 70 | Speed: 60 | Defense: 55 | Arm: 60

Adell missed the first six weeks of the season with a sprained ankle and strained hamstring, but he has been better than ever since he returned. He is showing increased first-step quickness in the outfield, has improved his pitch selection and plate discipline to cut down on his strikeouts and has added more strength to impact the ball with more authority. That added strength showed up in his two-month domination of the Double-A Southern League, where he produced a .944 OPS before being promoted to Triple-A Salt Lake. He's slated to make up the lost time early in the year with a place in the Arizona Fall League.

Gets a grade of 9 (really really good) D (really really risky) in the new Minor League Baseball Analyst, which finds its way into some bookstores and can be ordered from Baseball HQ).

Spd ++++

Def +++

"Insanely athletic defender with deceptive power at the plate. Body is still developing but raw power is already grabbing attention. There's work to be done with the mid-20s strikeout percentage, but with his instincts where they are at 19, there's still time. Lethal speed and plus range defensively make him a lock for major league center field."
