Adam’s third pitch in 2019 (11.6%), the change was employed most often ahead in the count against lefties and held opponents to a .250 wOBA. With good drop and excellent fade away from lefties, the movement makes up for mediocre velocity separation (5 mph) causing 50% grounders, though not generating a significant chase (26.5%) or whiff rate (8.7%).

Usually locating the curve out of the zone (34.9% zone), Adam was unable to get hitters to offer at it consistently (15.9% O-Swing, 20.8% Swing), therefore getting very few whiffs (3.8%). The pitch shows good sweeping action at 77.7 mph with average depth.

Adam’s fastball shows good velocity at 94.4 mph to go with pretty average rise and armside run. Generally working in the upper half off the zone (52% zone) it is an extreme fly ball generator (24.4% GB) and gets excellent whiff rates, even in the zone (14.8% SwStr, 75.5% Z-Contact), all told holding hitters to a .240 wOBA in 2019 with a 16/8 K/BB ratio.
