Unsigned draft pick Austin Adams flashing great stuff


Really neither here nor there, since the Brewers failed to sign Adams after drafting him in the 27th round last year (and as a shortstop no less), but I remembered his name and found it interesting: "When he’s not starting or playing shortstop, Adams often closes for Faulkner, with reports of him hitting 98 mph and sitting at 93-96 with a power breaking ball in the low 80s when he comes in as a reliever. He has given up 47 hits in 43 innings this season, walking 21 and striking out just 39. He’s a 5-foot-10 righthander, and frankly scouts don’t know what to make of Adams. With his quality stuff, he should be dominating NAIA competition, but he hasn’t."
