MLB Draft: White Sox select Spencer Adams in 2nd round


With their second round draft choice the Chicago White Sox selected right-handed pitcher Spencer Adams.

From White County High School (GA), Adams is the 44th overall selection of the 2014 MLB First-Year Player Draft.

Adams is 6-3 and 171 pounds, as he’s a Georgia recruit if he decides against going to the minors.

According to bigleaguefutures.net in their scouting notes by Don Olsen from the 2013 Tournament of Stars:

“Spencer has a tall athletic frame with narrow sloped shoulders in a Kevin Brown mold.  He throws from a ¾ to a low ¾ slot, has a bit of whip action in transition, but decent three piece delivery without concerns.”

MLB.com says of Adams:

“Adams’ fastball sits in the low 90s and tops out at 95 mph with excellent life. His sharp slider is his best secondary offering and has the potential to be a swing-and-miss offering. His changeup and curveball give him two more pitches that have the chance to be average or better. “

In the first round, with their No. 3 overall selection, the White Sox selected Carlos Rodon, a LHP, from North Caroline State.
