Austin Adams was part of the deal that brought Austin Nola to San Diego on Sunday. The Padres, 21-15 this season, are loading up on talent to make a run in the playoffs.
Adams hasn't pitched yet this season as he stands on the precipice of a return from ACL surgery. Before the trade, the Mariners were considering bringing him back as early as Monday. He does not figure to be in the mix for saves in San Diego. Owners in 12-team standard redraft leagues can leave him on the waiver wire.
Austin Adams (knee) is on track to join the Mariners on their next road trip.
Their next road trip begins next Monday in Texas. Adams remains on the injured list as he recovers from ACL surgery so it's good to hear he is close to returning. He posted a 3.94 ERA in 30 relief appearances a season ago.
Mariners GM Jerry Dipoto said Wednesday that Austin Adams "will be a full go" for the start of spring.
Adams is a 100 percent after undergoing knee surgery during the off-season. He will not miss any time and should be all systems go once spring training starts. Adams played a key role in the Mariners/Nationals bullpen last season, recording a 3.94 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and a 53:16 K:BB across 32 innings. He isn't in contention for saves and not on the fantasy radar for 2020.
Austin Adams underwent an MRI on Sunday that revealed damage to the ACL in his right knee. He'll require surgery to repair his knee and is expected to need 6-to-8 months to recover.
Adams should have a key role in the Seattle bullpen waiting for him once he's healthy again, but he will most likely open the 2020 season on the injured list.
