LF,CF,RF - LAA
Angels outfielder Jo Adell is not in the lineup for the team's matchup against the Oakland Athletics Tuesday.
Adell is not injured despite missing a couple of games with a quad issue last week. He is getting a day off after getting off to a slow start. Through five games, Adell is batting .211 with 11 strikeouts in 19 at-bats.
Jo Adell will not be playing in Thursday's matchup against the Mariners due to quad tightness.
Adell made his MLB debut just a few days ago and has gone 2-for-8 with a run and four strikeouts in those two games. Justin Upton has been struggling mightily this season and Adell is in a position to wrangle away every day center field duties. He's a must-add in all leagues and should be back in the lineup Friday against the Rangers.
Jo Adell will start in RF and bat seventh in his major-league debut Tuesday.
Adell was called up to the big leagues Monday, but wasn’t inserted in the starting lineup. He “will play everyday,” said Angels’ manager Joe Maddon. Justin Upton and Brian Goodwin will platoon in the outfield. Adell is a must add in every league format, and is worth spending a good percentage of your FAAB budget on.
Top prospect Jo Adell was called up by the Angels Monday.
Adell was part of the 60-man player pool and is now set for his big-league debut. He slashed .308/.390/.553 across 43 games for Double-A mobile last year. Adell has legit power and has 60-grade raw power. The 21-year-old should be owned in all league formats.
Angels manager Joe Maddon says top prospect Jo Adell is a high-ceiling player but "has things to work on, quite frankly."
This is basically the Angels saying Adell won't be on the team's Opening Day roster. There are clearly financial incentives to this decision but it is what we have come to expect with organizations handling their top prospects. Adell should still get a chance to play in the big leagues at some point in 2020. He'll be worth an immediate pickup in fantasy whenever that occurs.
