ANALYSIS
Adam will join a group of 11 players training in South Bend, while 39 others will work out at Wrigley Field. This likely puts Adam a little ways away from any meaningful MLB action, though he did look good over 23 games with the Blue Jays last season and could get a look at some point this year.

Stat Review
How does Jason Adam compare to other relievers?
This section compares his stats with all relief pitcher seasons from the previous three seasons (minimum 30 innings)*. The bar represents the player's percentile rank. For example, if the bar is halfway across, then the player falls into the 50th percentile for that stat and it would be considered average.

* Exit Velocity, Barrels/BBE %, Balls Hit 95+ MPH %, and Spin Rate are benchmarked against 2019 data (min 30 IP). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.
  • K/BB
    Strikeout to walk ratio.
  • K/9
    Average strikeouts per nine innings.
  • BB/9

  • BABIP

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2015
2014
2013
Despite a fastball that can reach the high-90s and decent strikeout rates, Adam struggled for a second consecutive season as starter with a 5.03 ERA at Double-A. He was then moved to the bullpen at Triple-A and had success with a 2.35 ERA and 11:4 K:BB ratio in 15.1 innings, which likely prompted the Twins to trade for him in August. Adam has had decent strikeout rates and good control in his minor league career, but has given up too many hits. A change of scenery and a move to the bullpen could turn his career around. He'll likely begin the season at Triple-A Rochester.
Though Adam showed only minimal growth in his jump to Double-A in 2013, he still remains relatively high on the Royals' prospect list. He posted a solid 7.9 K/9 over 144 innings and dropped his HR/9 to 0.8, but seemed to struggle more with his command and saw his walk rate nearly double from the year before. Following the season, the team sent him to the Arizona Fall League to face stronger competition and while he fixed some of his command issues, he found himself victimized by the long ball once again. Obviously a work in progress, Adam still projects as an eventual middle-of-the-rotation hurler whose big, strong frame should allow him to eat plenty of innings. The club may start him off at Double-A again, but he should earn himself a promotion to the Triple-A level before the season is through.
Adam was a fifth-round pick in 2010 and has quickly ascended the prospect ranks in Kansas City. He projects as a middle-of-the-rotation starter who should be a true innings-eater given his big, strong frame. He threw 158 innings in High-A last year and posted a 3.53 ERA with 123 strikeouts to just 36 walks. He will likely start the season at Double-A Northwest Arkansas in 2013, but looks like he could still be another year or two away from having a major league impact.
