After one year at Dallas Baptist, Adams was drafted by the New York Yankees in the fifth round of the 2015 Major League Baseball Draft.[1]

Adams made his professional debut with the Staten Island Yankees of the Class A-Short Season New York-Penn League and was later[when?] promoted to the Charleston RiverDogs of the Class A South Atlantic League and Tampa Yankees of the Class A-Advanced Florida State League.[2] He posted a combined 3–1 win–loss record, 1.78 earned run average (ERA) and 0.93 walks plus hits per inning pitched in ​35 13 combined innings between the three teams. Adams was converted into a starting pitcher in 2016 and started the year with Tampa,[3] and after pitching to a 5–0 record and 2.65 ERA in 12 games, was promoted to the Trenton Thunder of the Class AA Eastern League in June, where he finished the season with an 8–1 record and 2.07 ERA.[4][5][6] In 2017, Adams pitched for both Trenton and the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders of the Class AAA International League, posting a combined 15–5 record and 2.45 ERA in ​150 13 total innings pitched between both teams.[7]
