al west los angeles angels baseball prospects news 1 jo adell scouting report
Prospect: Jo Adell
Position: Outfielder
Organization: Los Angeles Angels
Height/Weight: 6’3”, 208 lbs.
Bats/Throws: R/R
Age/DOB: 19 (April 8, 1999)
Acquired/Hometown: Round 1 (2017); Louisville, KY (Ballard HS)

May 22-24, 2018 — Inland Empire 66ers (High-A, California League)
Already up in High-A despite playing just 74 career minor league games before reaching the level; just turned 19 six weeks ago, which immediately made him one of the youngest Cal Leaguers in 2018 the moment he was called up … Maturity beyond his years with a good head on his shoulders; comes with rave reports from teammates and team officials; very strong makeup and work ethic, good maturity … Above-average runner on the bases, really strides it out to plus in the outfield. Timed him 4.14, 4.19, and 4.20 up the line from the RHH box; 4.56, 4.58, and 4.59 (2) turns at first base; 7.99 and 8.06 sliding doubles into second base. Really runs well in the outfield, covering a ton of ground after getting to top speed … Lean with lots of physical projection ahead to add weight, but plenty of strength and raw power at the plate already; puts on a show in BP with above-average pop to left and center field; loud BP rounds; great carry on line drives; ball keeps rising on its way out. Good line drive show in first High-A game action, too; hit a couple balls right on the barrel but right at people and then came back with a couple rocket doubles and a towering home run; plus bat speed with smooth swing and extremely quick hands, plus natural loft through mechanics … Jo Adell made a good first impression up in Visalia in his first High-A action; no question he’s an everyday first division centerfielder at ceiling with plenty of upside ahead.
