    Adam began the year as the highest-rated pitching prospect in Kansas. Though Ryne Stanek has since surpassed him, Adam pitched well enough at the start of the season that the state might have had two high school pitchers drafted in the first three rounds for the first time ever. Early in the spring, he had a low-90s fastball that topped out at 95 and also spun a good curveball. His stuff tailed off, however, making it more likely that he'd follow through on a strong commitment to Missouri. Adam's changeup shows enough promise that he eventually could have three average-or-better pitches with good control. At 6-foot-4 and 225 pounds, he's more physical than Stanek, and he also repeats his delivery more consistently.
