The Royals recalled RHP Chance Adams from their alternate training site.
Adams will serve as bullpen depth in Kansas City. Ian Kennedy was placed on the IL with a calf injury in a corresponding move.
Chance Adams gave up one hit and one walk while striking out four through three scoreless innings to record his first save in a 13-5 win over the Rays. After the game, the Yankees optioned Adams back to Triple-A.
The Yankees called up Adams on Monday and this is his first appearance in the big leagues this season. Since he went three innings the team decided he wasn't going to be available for the next couple of days and sent him back to the minors. Adams should get recalled at some point this year.
Chance Adams (0-1) took the loss Saturday as the Yankees fell 4-1 to the Red Sox, allowing three runs on three hits and a walk over five innings while striking out two.
This was just a spot start for the Yankees prospect. Adams has a chance to be a solid starter in the majors once he solidifies a role in the rotation. Fantasy owners in Dynasty formats may want to keep Adams stashed.
According to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, 23-year-old Chance Adams will make his major league debut on Saturday versus the Red Sox barring a last-second shift in plans.
It's a tough draw for Adams, who was once considered a high ceiling prospect but currently owns a 4.50 ERA in Triple-A this year. Adams likely won't be up for longer than this one start, so he isn't a recommended fantasy add.
