The Yankees weren’t completely idle on their off-day Thursday, making one transaction most fans saw coming. The team optioned right-hander Chance Adams to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre after Wednesday night’s loss in Miami.
Adams threw 1⅔ innings in relief in that game, turning a two-run deficit into a six-run deficit for the Yankees. He allowed four runs on four hits and three walks, including a pinch-hit homer by JT Riddle. However, in Adams’s defense, he was making his first relief appearance since August 18, 2016, when he was with Double-A Trenton.
In 6⅔ innings in the majors, Adams is 0-1 with an 8.10 ERA. With Triple-A, he is 3-5 with a 4.98 ERA.
