OC Register: Angels’ top prospect Jo Adell suffers two injuries at once

1 post in this topic

Jo Adell, the Angels top prospect and one of the top prospects in baseball, suffered a sprained right ankle and a strained left hamstring while running the bases Saturday.

Adell was playing for the Angels’ split-squad against the Chicago Cubs in Mesa. He had reached base on a second-inning single, and he was subsequently hurt rounding second. He walked off the field under his own power.

There was no immediate word on the severity of the injuries or how long Adell might miss, but it will no doubt slow his progress toward the major leagues.

Adell, 19, is likely to begin this season at Double-A, with a chance to reach the majors sometime this year if he continued to perform.

Adell is 9 for 23 this spring, making a good impression in his first big league camp, after rising through three levels of the Angels’ farm system in his first full season. Baseball Prospectus ranked him the No. 2 prospect in baseball, while other organizations ranked him in the top 20.
