Royals Trade Perez for Adams

Yesterday, the Royals traded shortstop Cristian Perez for RHP Chance Adams.  Adams is only 25-years-old but has had some tough times in his short MLB career.  However, Adams is a former top-100 prospect who possesses four pitches and perhaps a chance to start.  He was brilliant as a relief pitcher early in the minors.  The…

Film Study: Rule 5 Pick Stephen Woods
