Report: David Adams to miss Spring Training

Anthony McCarron of the Daily News is reporting that David Adams has a back injury and will miss Spring Training. Adams, an infield prospect, missed a chunk of both the 2010 and 2011 seasons with an ankle injury so news of this latest injury is a tough break for him. It wasn't a guarantee that he'd make the big league club but it would have been nice for him to be given a chance to compete for a spot.

The soon to be 26-year-old hit .286/.388/.524 in 22 games in the Arizona Fall League and he batted .306/.385/.450 in 86 games with Triple A Trenton in 2012.
