College arm Adams offers Red Sox solid mix

BOSTON -- Taken by the Red Sox with the 203rd pick overall, Mike Adams had pitched just 16 innings during his first three years at Tampa before finding a role as the Spartans' bullpen ace this season.

He excelled coming out of the 'pen and was named a Division II All-American. He struck out 77 batters in 64 1/3 innings and recorded a 2.10 ERA. He's listed a 6-foot-3 and 215 pounds.

Adams, a left-hander, throws his fastball in the upper 80s with good movement. His best pitch is his curveball, which grades as a plus offering, and he also throws a serviceable changeup. He has a loose, easy delivery, which helps him throw all three of his pitches for strikes.

Adams was a red-shirt his freshman year, and still has one year of eligibility remaining.
