Ryan Adams has been suspended 100 games for his second positive test for an amphetamine.
Adams was released by the Dodgers earlier this month, so he'll begin serving the suspension once he latches on with a new organization. The 27-year-old hasn't appeared in the majors since 2011 and is strictly minor league fodder at this point in his career. Thu, Jul 17, 2014 04:46:00 PM

Dodgers signed 2B Ryan Adams to a minor league contract.

Adams hit just .224/.312/.353 with four homers in 2012 with the Orioles' Triple-A affiliate and didn't play at all last season. He's merely a depth add.

Orioles minor league infielder Ryan Adams was suspended 25 games for testing positive for an amphetamine.

Adams was outrighted off the Orioles' 40-man roster in September, but he was still on the roster at the time of the test. The 25-year-old infielder played exclusively in the minors this year, but appeared in 29 games with the O's last season.

Orioles sent INF Ryan Adams outright to Triple-A Norfolk.

Adams was designated for assignment earlier this week but has cleared waivers and will remain in the organization.

Orioles designated INF Ryan Adams for assignment.

The move cleared a spot on the 40-man roster. Adams, who appeared in 29 games with the Orioles last season, batted just .224/.312/.353 with four homers and a .665 OPS in 65 games with Triple-A Norfolk this year.

Orioles optioned 2B Ryan Adams to Triple-A Norfolk.

Adams made semi-regular starts in 29 games for the Orioles last season before undergoing sports hernia surgery this offseason. It's not unrealistic to think he could return to the majors at some point in 2012.

Ryan Adams will undergo surgery soon to repair a sports hernia.

It's an injury Adams has dealt with all season, though it was originally diagnosed as a groin injury. "It's just not getting any better and I talked to [manager Buck Showalter], and it was just one of those things, 'Why wait another week? Why not just get it done now?'" Adams said. The recovery period for the procedure isn't long, and Adams should be fine by spring training.

Ryan Adams could miss the rest of the season with a sports hernia.

Surgery isn't scheduled yet, but the O's could eventually decide to shut him down. Adams, 24, is batting .281/.333/.326 with four doubles, seven RBI and a .659 OPS over 96 plate appearances with the O's this season.

Ryan Adams is expected to draw frequent starts at second base down the stretch for Baltimore.

Adams was promoted to the majors on Sunday after posting a .283 batting average, 10 home runs and 37 RBI in 93 games with Triple-A Norfolk. The 24-year-old is probably worth consideration in deeper AL-only leagues because of his mild power potential.

Orioles recalled INF Ryan Adams from Triple-A Norfolk.

He went 5-for-22 (.227) with one RBI in his first taste of the big leagues earlier this season. The 24-year-old infielder, a second-round draft pick in 2006, isn't worth a flier in AL-only leagues.

Orioles optioned INF Ryan Adams to Triple-A Norfolk.

It's long overdue. Robert Andino has drawn most of the starts at second base during Brian Roberts' absence, so Adams is much better off getting regular playing time in the minor leagues. The 24-year-old infielder went 5-for-22 (.227) with one RBI in his first taste of the big leagues.

The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec thinks second baseman Ryan Adams will soon be returned to Triple-A Norfolk.

Adams has started just three of 12 games since being recalled on May 20, and Orioles manager Buck Showalter appears to prefer Robert Andino at second base during Brian Roberts' absence. A second-round draft pick in 2006, Adams isn't benefitting from sitting on the Orioles bench.

Recently recalled infielder Ryan Adams will make his major-league debut on Friday against the Nationals, batting ninth while starting at second base.

The start could be first of a couple in a row for the 24-year-old Adams while Brian Roberts is on the disabled list with concussion-like symptoms. However, he's very unlikely to be worth a flier in AL-only leagues.

Orioles purchased the contract of 2B Ryan Adams from Triple-A Norfolk.

A second-round draft pick in 2006, Adams could be in line to make his major-league debut on Friday when the Orioles take on the Nationals. His call-up is a result of Brian Roberts' placement on the 7-day disabled list with concussion-like symptoms. In 152 at-bats for Norfolk this season, Adams was hitting .303 with two home runs, eight RBI and three stolen bases. His stay in the big leagues will most likely be brief.
Fri, May 20, 2011 12:30:00 PM

Ryan Adams was promoted to the Orioles' big league camp.

Don't put Adams among your sleeper picks just yet, this isn't likely to last long. However, with Brian Roberts still recovering from his herniated disc, Justin Turner resting a bruised left foot, and Caesar Izturis out with a sore throat, the O's needed a warm body and Adams fits that description.
