Joe Maddon cautions against expecting Jo Adell to join the Angels too quickly

first_imgMaddon said he has heard nothing about plans the Angels may have for relocating if any changes to the health regulations in California or Orange County would prohibit their workouts or games from continuing as scheduled. “If that were to happen then you just have to make the adjustment,” Maddon said. “I have been talking about flexibility and being nimble, being uncomfortable being inconvenienced. It’s not going away. If in fact there’s something going on in our direction that we would have to make an adjustment I’m sure that we would, but as of right now I’ve not been approached.” “This guy is absolutely a huge part of our future,” Maddon said. “No question. But, again, there’s really no rush. Just make sure that all the boxes are checked, that he’s able to work in all the different areas that make a complete Major League Baseball player. I’ve been around situations where guys have been rushed. And when you do that, you could lose a really good player.”When Maddon was asked flat-out if Adell has a path to make the roster for the Angels’ July 24 opener, he said: “Jo Adell is doing great right now. I like the progress that he’s making. I’m not gonna say can or cannot. I’m just going to tell you that I like what he’s doing right now. You’ve been watching too. Just start counting players heads, names, positions and I think you’ll be able to figure it out.”The Angels have Mike Trout in center and Justin Upton in left, and will try to split starts in right field between Brian Goodwin and David Fletcher. Michael Hermosillo, who has big league experience, would seemingly be the best choice as a backup outfielder.It is unlikely the Angels would want Adell in the majors unless there is a spot for him to play every day.ROTATION UPDATEMaddon conceded that Matt Andriese appears to be in line to be the Angels’ fifth starter. The top four are Andrew Heaney, Shohei Ohtani, Dylan Bundy and Griffin Canning, although the order hasn’t been set. Beyond that, Jaime Barria and Felix Peña are the two leading candidates to fill in as the sixth starter. Maddon said the Angels would primarily use a sixth starter to accommodate Ohtani, since he would be pitching on six days rest while the other starters would pitch on four or five days rest.COMINGS AND GOINGSThe Angels have added right-hander Parker Markel to the injured list, although Maddon said he does not have a physical injury.Markel is the seventh player to be on the injured list, but the first to be added after initially participating in camp. When asked if he’s concerned that a player who was cleared to participate initially is now out, Maddon said: “No.”Teams are prohibited from disclosing which players on the COVID-related injured list unless the player gives his consent.Luis Rengifo, one of the players who had been absent from camp for undisclosed reasons, joined the team on Wednesday.Patrick Sandoval, Matt Thaiss, Jared Walsh, Brandon Marsh and Rengifo have all joined the team since the start of camp. Marsh and Rengifo, however, remain on the injured list.Julio Teheran, Jose Suarez, Jose Quijada and Dillon Peters are the only players who have been absent the entire camp. All are on the injured list.The Angels added right-hander Denny Brady to their player pool. Brady, 23, was their seventh-round pick in 2017. He pitched last season at Inland Empire, posting a 3.64 ERA in 76-2/3 innings, including 10 starts. He struck out 10.1 hitters per nine innings.ALSOThe Angels were set for their first night intrasquad game on Wednesday. They are scheduled to play at night again Friday and Saturday. They have night games next Monday through Wednesday, two against the Padres sandwiched around one against the Dodgers…So far the Angels don’t have Reid Detmers listed to work in any of their intrasquad games. The left-hander was the Angels’ first-round pick in last month’s draft. …Related Articles Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone center_img Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield ANAHEIM >> Joe Maddon has frequently gushed about Jo Adell during his first two camps — one in the spring and one in the summer — getting a look at the Angels’ top prospect.On Wednesday, though, Maddon pumped the brakes just a bit for anyone expecting Adell to be on the Angels Opening Day roster.“The guy’s high-ceiling all the way around,” the Angels manager said. “But he has things to work on, quite frankly. Don’t be deceived by a couple well-struck balls in a spring training game, whether it’s here now or in an actual spring that we just went through.”Adell, 21, has been getting plenty of opportunity in Angels intrasquad games through the first week and a half of their summer camp. He’s had a few extra base hits against big league pitchers. He’s also struck out several times and had a couple gaffes in the outfield.
