2018 FANTASY BASEBALL WELCOME TO THE SHOW: WILLY ADAMES SS TAMPA BAY RAYS

May is always holiday time for prospect hounds as the Super 2 deadline has passed and the needs of the various teams around MLB start realizing the need to get reinforcements from the minors.  Tuesday the trend continued as the Tampa Bay Rays promoted top shortstop prospect Willy Adames who will immediately slot into the sixth spot in the order for that night's game.  Long considered one of the more talked-about prospects, the 22-year-old Adames was hitting .311 with 4 home runs and 3 steals in 40 games at Triple-A and so the Rays felt he was ready to show what he could do at the major league level.  Now in terms of fantasy baseball, Adames should be picked up in all leagues but in deeper mixers he may not yield as much value as his defense is head of his offense despite the very good batting average on the farm.  Keep in mind Adames only had a 10/11 split in the HR/SB categories a year ago at Triple-A and his 22.5 K/9 was not great considering it will surely go up against major league pitching.
