Top 10 Thunder players for 2012 - No. 5: David Adams

Bio: Adams started the season with Trenton in 2010 before suffering a career-altering injury in Portland on May 22. Since then, he's played just 12 games outside of the complex league, all with High-A Tampa last season. A University of Virginia product, the Yankees protected Adams on the 40-man roster prior to this season's Rule 5 draft.  

2011: Adams spent most of the year rehabbing. When he wasn't, he usually could be found on one side or another of Himes Avenue in Tampa, where the Yankees have both their High-A and Gulf Coast League teams.

He spent 17 games with the GCL Yankees, for whom he provided .429/.469/.643 of gravy for an already impressive team of young bats. He hit .308 in his dozen games with the T-Yanks. Otherwise, it was a lost season for Adams. 

What's Next: Adams' agent, B.B. Abbott, in an e-mail, said his client "feels good and is preparing for a long season." I think there's a good chance (although not 100 percent) that Adams begins the year back at Waterfront Park.
