Jordon "Jo" Adell - OF LAA

Prospects of the Week:                 

From Paul Martin-

Adell is one of my favorite prospects in the entirety of the minor leagues. This incredibly athletic prospect became popular this summer for being known as the guy keeping up with Mike Trout‘s home run distances in BP. In fact, there is the famous picture of him lodging a ball into a wall due to the insane exit velocity he had off the bat. The power is phenomenal, and after a slow start, he hit all 5 HR he has in 2018 this week. It is astonishing to watch this guy in action because the five-tool tag is supremely apparent. He’s huge, he fields well, throws well, has immense power and speed, plus slight improvements on the strikeout rate will make his hit tool even more coveted. This performance is one of many studly weeks I project for Jo Adell in the future, and as he moves up the ranks this season, I will bet he makes this article a few more times.

So, one month in A+, mashes his way to AA for a week and then, what, starting LF right after the All Star Break?

 

or has Soto ruined my prospect expectations?

I know this might not be the place, but what are we talking here as far his updating ranking?  Is he a potential top 5 for next season?  The swing and miss makes me pause a bit but I’m so close to swapping Mejia for him in my dynasty.

Dynasty or keeper?

 

FWIW I own Mejia and Adell on the same 5x5 squad and if forced to pick between the two I'm keeping Adell...But I chase upside.

From Razzball Ralph Lifsh!tz -

  • Jo Adell is a top 10 Fantasy prospect. It’s true, I can’t think of 10 players I could make a concrete case against him with. He’s in the midst of a 3-for-3 night as I write this, and is slashing .291/.347/.556 with 11 homers and 9 steals between low and high A ball. After starting off somewhat slow through his first ten games post promotion, slashing .190/.244/.500, he’s really turned it on his last ten, going .326/.341/.558. Plus speed, plus hit, plus power, make Adell a monster in the making. Though you’d like to see more walks following the promotion to Inland, it’s important to keep in mind he’s been a professional ball player for just about 12 months. Sky is the limit, don’t trade Adell.

Too soon to grab and hold for this year in a 12 team, Roto keeper where we keep 8 each year and there is offseason trading?

 

if he is going to jump the ranks quickly and we could be looking at a cup of coffee this year and a June/July call next...probably worth grabbing.

upside of this magnitude is rare. I don't think that's a bad idea at all.

As he continues to destroy the baseball whats an approximate ETA?  At this pace I'd say sometime next year.  Calhouns play this year should give him a clear opening when he is ready

 

Pretty early 2019, probably similar to how Acuna was handled this year.  The Angels need to get this guy in their lineup with Trout for as long as they can.
