According to 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.”" 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.
