Projectability is the big word you see used around Zane Adams, as he continues to work to add to a long and lanky frame. Considered to be the best prep lefty in Texas — which is certainly saying something given the talent that state continues to pump out — the polite southpaw is committed to Alabama, but will almost surely be given plenty to think about by a team in the first few rounds of the Draft.
FSS Event History: A standout in both the National Tournaments and National Combine, Adams was an easy choice to add to the Main Event, where he proved he belonged and then some; earning one of the prestigious starts at Fenway Park, he struck out four of the 12 batters he faced, allowing just one hit.
Current Ranking in Joe Doyle’s FSS Plus Top 600: 99
Joe Doyle on Adams:
An Alabama commit, Adams is considered one of the more promising left-handed pitching prospects in the 2023 class with immense projection and present stuff. The velocity has really ticked up over the last 12 months, now brushing 95, sitting comfortably in the low-90s deep into his outings. Adams has a promising upper-70s breaking ball that he commands well with big shape and projection thanks to its current velocity and Adams’ arm speed. He’ll mix in a changeup as well, though it’s presently tertiary and it used seldomly against RHH.
