After absolutely dominating Minor League Baseball for the last few weeks, Jason Adam will finally be making his first trip to the big leagues.
After posting a 2.35 ERA with AAA Omaha in 2014, Adam was traded to the Minnesota Twins for Josh Willingham as the Royals were chasing a playoff birth. Adam didn’t pitch in affiliated baseball in 2015 or 2016, but is now back and making noise in the Royals organization.
In 18 innings this season, Adam has an ERA of 1.00 with 26 K’s and only 6 BB’s. His fastball has been clocked in the upper-90’s and his curveball has some of the nastiest tilt I’ve seen in a long time. Adam will surely be a sight for sore eyes in a Royals bullpen that has been less than stellar in 2018.
Royals fans, let’s welcome Blue Valley Northwest High School graduate Jason Adam to the Kansas City Royals.
