Adams doesn't have the pure arm-strength of teammate Drew Smith or the devastating slider of teammate Brandon Koch, but he supplanted Smith late in the season in the setup role because he has a better present arsenal. At 6-foot, 205 pounds, Adams doesn't generate much downhill plane, but he has plenty of stuff with a mid-90s fastball and a quality slider that gives him a chance to have two above-average pitches.
