Things were going very well for David Adams in 2010. He was already in Double-A in his second full season with the organization while posting a .393 OBP and a .900 OPS when he hurt his ankle.
Initially declared as a sprain, the injury derailed a possible trade for Cliff Lee and even two years later it has not completely healed. When speaking with Chad Jennings of the Journal News today, Adams said the ankle still bothers him a little bit and that he is not 100 percent healed.
Adams played in 29 games last year as he attempted to rehab the injury. He is currently participating in full drills, but is laying off the conditioning stuff though. This certainly hasn’t become make or break time for Adams, but as this injury continues to drag on it will get to a time when you have to wonder if this could be putting his career in jeopardy.
