The Yankees selected Adams in the third round of the 2008 Amateur Draft. He has bounced up and down in the minor leagues since, struggling a bit with injuries. Things started to look up last season as Adams hit .306/.385/.450 for the AA Trenton Thunder and started for the East Division in the Arizona Fall League's Rising Stars Game. So far in 2013, Adams has hit .316/.407/.490 for the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (gotta love minor-league team names). His solid numbers against left-handed pitching are expected to help a Yankees lineup struggling with southpaws.
Adams and the Yankees will face the Mariners at Yankee Stadium. First pitch is at 7:05 EST. Good luck, David!
UPDATE: Things didn't go so hot for the Yankees, losing 12-2. But David recorded his first major league hit with a single in the sixth inning. He goes to bed tonight with a .250 career major league batting average, and more hits than the two-year career of Mike Potter.
