The LA Angels are in win-now mode. They’ve spent over $250 million this offseason to get them into position for a Wild Card race. Having Jo Adell on their Opening Day roster would go a long way in helping them get there.
Is Adell a perfect prospect? No. Will he go through growing pains once he reaches the MLB? Probably. Nevertheless, the Angels should follow the route the Chicago White Sox took last week, and attempt to sign Jo Adell to an extension immediately.
Luis Robert is a top prospect in baseball for the White Sox, and rather than manipulate his service time this upcoming season, the White Sox agreed to a 6-year, $50 million deal that could go much longer with club options.
