BayBears Jo Adell will play in All-Star Futures Game


Adell is the highest-rated Angels prospect since Mike Trout in 2011.

Outfielder Jo Adell of the Mobile BayBears, the Double-A affiliate of the Los Angeles Angels, has been selected to participate in the SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game. The event will take place on Sunday, July 7, at Progressive Field in Cleveland at 6 p.m. CDT.

Adell, 20, is the No. 1 prospect in the Angels organization and No. 4 overall prospect in baseball, according to MLB Pipeline. Adell is slashing .386/.456/.643 with three home runs, 10 RBIs, nine doubles, and four stolen bases since returning from Class A Advanced Inland Empire on June 2. Adell has recorded multiple hits in 10 of his 19 games with the BayBears.

Adell made his Double-A debut last year on July 31 and played in 17 games with Mobile. He was a non-roster invitee at Major League Spring Training this year but suffered a right ankle sprain and left hamstring strain on March 9. After missing the first 45 games of the season on Mobile’s 7-day injured list, Adell returned to action on May 24 with Inland Empire. In six games with the 66ers, he slugged a pair of home runs and went 7-for-25 at the plate.

The Angels selected Adell with the 10th overall pick in the 2017 MLB Draft out of Ballard High School in Louisville, Kentucky. He was named an Organization All-Star in his first professional season and represented the Angels in the SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game last year. Adell is the highest-rated Angels prospect since Mike Trout in 2011.
