Full Name: Austin Lance Adams

Age: 26
Birthplace: Tampa, FL
Bats: R
Throws: R
Height: 6' 2"
Weight: 225
Draft: Round 8 (2012, LAA)
School: South Florida
Selected by the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in the eighth round of the 2012 First-Year Player Draft out of the University of South Florida.

Report from 12/16:

This past season, the 25-year-old appeared in 32 games for double-A Arkansas (two games in Salt Lake City). During his season with the Travelers, he went 0-1 with a 3.05 ERA while striking out 61 batters over 32 games (41.1 innings). His 61 K’s were the second most among all Travelers relievers (D.J. Johnson had 67).

In the second half of 2016, Adams had a strong finish to his season. Over his last 11 appearances, he had a 0.77 ERA, had three saves, struck out 19 batters to only four walks, and opponents were hitting .103 against him.

11 games, 16.2 IP so far at Syracuse: 1.62 ERA, 1.44 WHIP, 26Ks / 15 BB, 9 HA, opponents batting .180 against him.

Everything but the high walk rate looks good.

"Austin Lance."  Should either ride the Tour de France or be a pictures star.
