Seems like an auto-out lately ... here's a link to his B-R.com page ... 

I saw this analysis of Margot's failed attempt to steal home that makes sense to me ...

In that sequence it was Adames’ AB that drove me crazy. Runners on 1st and 3rd, one out. LAD had Muncy holding the runner on 1st and the other three INF on the left side of the INF by a big margin. An gigantic gap on the right side of the INF.

Adames has not been hitting. Just making contact of any kind to the right side scores a run (probably is a hit). Good grief, just a bunt to the right side would have scored Margot.

But NO, Adames swings for the fences and, yes, strikes out on a breaking ball a foot outside. That AB set the stage for the Margot gamble since hitting him in did not seem an option.

It was Adames AB that set-up the loss.

... AND ... then they let Adames hit again for the final out of the game ... why?

I guess his .319 post-season OBP isn't horrible ... and maybe relative to the options, this wasn't as bad of a decision as I think was ...

But I wanted anybody-but-Adames up at the plate for that final PA ...

Willy Adames (SS) TB - May. 25

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=741024

Adames was one of more than a dozen players present at Tropicana Field for the re-start of workouts Monday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: The shortstop was present and accounted for in what was the first opportunity for Rays players to work out together in more than two months. Participants were able to play catch, run, use free weights in a makeshift gym and also complete plyometric jumps and other exercises during Monday's session, which was conducted in groups of two. While Adames and his teammates did not have access to amenities such as batting cages, bullpen mounds or the full weight room, Topkin notes those areas may be accessible as early as next week. The team is also expected to make the stadium available Wednesday and Friday this week.

Willy Adames (SS) TB - Feb. 28

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=738286

Adames went 2-for-2 with a two-run home run and two runs overall in a Grapefruit League split-squad win over the Tigers on Thursday.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: The 24-year-old came into the game without his first spring hit, but he remedied that with a second-inning two-run shot off Tigers starter Jordan Zimmermann. Adames was eventually pulled for phenom Wander Franco to open the sixth inning, but  not before kick-starting his Grapefruit League ledger with the multi-hit effort.

LD% up, Hard% up, BABIP takes a 58-point plunge.

It could be that the luck evened out.
