The talented closer in college was taken by the Yankees with apparent other intentions. In 2016 they moved Adams to the rotation and that sure has looked like the right move. Chance Adams comes with a solid group of pitches. He brings a high 90s fastball and an already plus slider. The scary (in a good way) part for the youngster is he is working on two other pitches that are already serviceable. A curveball and change-up are coming and he already showed confidence in them. While both are a work in progress and not elite, when worked in with the others they already are effective. Adams is polished and his 12 starts at AA last year were nothing short of dominant. He is on the fast track to MLB and the Yankees may look at this position chance as their best move of 2016 if he meets his potential, which is sky high.
