@JoeTrezz
July 30, 2023

When the Angels drafted Nolan Schanuel with the 11th overall pick in this month’s 2023 MLB Draft, the organization hoped the slugging first baseman would rise quickly through its Minor League system. It was a match seemingly made for such an ascent: come Draft day, many felt Schanuel’s polished bat

"Come on, Jo, that ball has babies." That was Salt Lake Bees broadcaster Steve Klauke’s home run call after Jo Adell's most recent moonshot on Tuesday night. Down by three runs in the bottom of the eighth, Adell absolutely destroyed a 3-0 slider, 514 feet to left-center field and out

@Jacob_Resnick
April 9, 2023

This is getting ridiculous -- in the best possible way. When Jo Adell homered in three straight games for Triple-A Salt Lake, it raised some eyebrows. When the streak reached four, it prompted a dive into his swing decision improvements. After the fifth game in a row, something about Adell’s
