On Saturday Joan Adon made his second appearance for Triple-A Rochester, and the prospect had to face a tough Mets’ affiliate. The results were much better than Adon’s first start, and he showed much better control today.
The 25-year-old righty worked 5.2 innings where he allowed two earned runs on five hits and managed to record five strikeouts along the way in the clubs 2-1 loss in game one of the doubleheader against the Syracuse Mets. Of note, Matt Adams already has four home runs this season, and he was responsible for the Red Wings only tally today. Rochester only managed five hits in this game which was part of a doubleheader with Jake Irvin starting that game. Both games are 7.0 inning contests.
On the year, Adon has eight strikeouts over 10.1 innings worked with a 4.35 ERA. Over his MiLB Adon has worked 321.1 innings with 334 strikeouts recorded over 88 games with a 25-14 record and a 4.34 ERA.
Adon has appeared in the big leagues, but it hasn’t been historically good. In the 15 games at the big leagues for the Nationals, he has a 1-12 record with 64 strikeouts over 70 innings of work with a 6.81 ERA.
Adon touched 92-94 on his fastball and touched around 82-88 on his off speed pitches on Saturday. Adon’s next start should be on Thursday April 13 or Friday April 14.
