Hello, Jo Adell: Los Angeles Angels’ rising star stops in Salt Lake City

Jo Adell covered the 38 miles from Orem to Smith's Ballpark faster than anyone in the Los Angeles Angels organization ever navigated that I-15 trek.

He made it in two years, even with a major detour around second base in Mesa, Ariz.

Ranked the No. 4 prospect in Major League Baseball, the 20-year-old outfielder has joined the Salt Lake Bees in an advancement that’s significant for his own career and for the Angels system. Adell would have arrived sooner, if not for the baserunning accident with the freakish combination of straining his left hamstring and spraining his right ankle in an Angels spring training game in March.
