LA Angels: Jo Adell’s dream debut proves the Halos aren’t done
By Evan Desai
Jo Adell made his 2021 MLB debut on Tuesday for the LA Angels, and he was all we’ve been dreaming of for years now.
Adell was dominant; going for three hits on four at-bats, with two doubles.
Not only that, but Adell flashed the spikes with a stolen base too.
Jo Adell breathed life into the LA Angels after back-to-back losses.
Jo Adell’s debut performance was exactly what the LA Angels needed on Tuesday.
After the Angels dropped three of four from the A’s, and lost the first game of this Rangers series, the Halos needed a spark badly.
Both Mike Trout and Anthony Rendon didn’t even travel to Arlington, proving that they are still ways away form returning.
Adell provided exactly what the Angels needed, and he did it without his arch nemesis: The strikeout.
Adell struck out 55 times in 38 games last year. That would equate to 234 strikeouts over the course of a 162-game season.
He began to cut down on strikeouts in Triple-A, and proved in his debut that it absolutely was the right decision by the Angels to bring him back up.
If Trout is going to be out for much longer, which is very possible at this point, then Adell’s production is going to be very valuable.
We already know about his home run power, and he began to hit for a high average in Triple-A this July (.343). He picked up right where he left off when he moved up to the Halos’ club, and proved that his ceiling is just as high as we expected it to be.
