You know information is tight when players are asking me about the status of David Adams. Trenton’s second baseman got off to a hot start in 2010, hitting .309 with 3 home runs and 32 RBI in 39 games, but hasn’t played since May 22nd after suffering a sprained ankle in Portland.
Adams had been with the team, but has since returned to Tampa and suffered a somewhat mysterious setback, which nobody seems to have any details on.
I asked Thunder manager Tony Franklin directly about Adams’ status yesterday, and he said there is no concrete information regarding the former third round pick out of Virginia. However, I then asked the fourth-year Trenton skipper if he expected the 23-year-old back this season.
“As of now, no,” Franklin said.
“He’s been out a long, long time and here we are coming down to the end of the season. I can’t say that he’s going to come back right now. If he does, it would be great, but I just don’t think he’s going to come back right now.”
