Caleb Adams Promoted To AA Arkansas Travelers
Caleb Adams is movin’ on up in the minor leagues. The former Ragin’ Cajuns slugger is headed to the Arkansas Travelers (AA), after another promotion by the Los Angeles Angels.
The grind through the minor leagues is a long and grueling process, but Adams is catching the eye of the right people in the Angels organization.
It’s time for Caleb to pack his bags (and a bunch of Cajun seasoning) and head to Arkansas.
"Wheels up...next stop Dallas then Little Rock," Adams tweeted about the news.
Adams earned himself an All-Star nod for the Inland Empire 66ers (Advanced A), and he was second on the team with a batting average of .298 before he got called up. He now has 15 career home runs in the minor leagues and over 100 RBI. More importantly, he’s at well over 200 games played, which means his baseball career is off and running at a sprint.
Cajun fans got to know Adams for his pop at the plate, and it carried over to the next level. He has 68 career extra base hits (15 HR’s, 16 triples, 37 doubles), and if he cleans up his strikeout to walk ratio (262 SO: 94 BB), the promotions could continue.
Hopefully, Michael Strentz follows Adams soon. The two Cajuns played Advanced A together with the 66ers, so it’s only right that the Angels call Mike up soon too. Don’t the Arkansas Travelers need another catcher? We thought we heard that from some really good scouts…
Jace Conrad (who is playing Advanced A for the Charlotte Snow Crabs) is waiting on his next call up too, and he made sure to congratulate his fellow grinder.
"Congrats to my boy Caleb Adams on the promotion to AA! Dude's a grinder," Conrad tweeted out.
Keep making Cajun Nation proud, Caleb. We’ll follow you wherever you play ball, even if you go to the other side of the map.
If you really want to see why Caleb got called up, just watch the catch he makes at the beginning of his most recent highlight tape…way to go, Caleb. Keep grinding.
