By any name, Adell displays first-round talent | MiLB.com News

“It was a grind in Arizona. Just keeping the energy up for all the games after the work you need to put in is different and takes some getting used to,” the 6-foot-2, 195-pounder said. “The big thing for me is keying in on every pitch during every game. As a hitter, you’re not always going to get a pitch you can drive. The pitchers here are just too good. Even if they throw you a strike, it might not be your pitch. That’s a lot different than in high school where you may not get what you’re looking for but you can still do damage. If you don’t get ahead and find your pitch early in the count at this level, you’re not going to be able to do much.

“The bottom line is everybody here is good. They all have the stuff and the ability to be successful. So it’s my job to figure out a way to separate myself and put myself on a different level. The grind is real, the games are longer and you need to go out there and show your stuff.”
