Orioles minor league infielder Ryan Adams was suspended 25 games for testing positive for an amphetamine.
Adams was outrighted off the Orioles' 40-man roster in September, but he was still on the roster at the time of the test. The 25-year-old infielder played exclusively in the minors this year, but appeared in 29 games with the O's last season.

Ryan Adams will undergo surgery soon to repair a sports hernia.
It's an injury Adams has dealt with all season, though it was originally diagnosed as a groin injury. "It's just not getting any better and I talked to [manager Buck Showalter], and it was just one of those things, 'Why wait another week? Why not just get it done now?'" Adams said. The recovery period for the procedure isn't long, and Adams should be fine by spring training.

Ryan Adams could miss the rest of the season with a sports hernia.
Surgery isn't scheduled yet, but the O's could eventually decide to shut him down. Adams, 24, is batting .281/.333/.326 with four doubles, seven RBI and a .659 OPS over 96 plate appearances with the O's this season.

Ryan Adams is expected to draw frequent starts at second base down the stretch for Baltimore.
Adams was promoted to the majors on Sunday after posting a .283 batting average, 10 home runs and 37 RBI in 93 games with Triple-A Norfolk. The 24-year-old is probably worth consideration in deeper AL-only leagues because of his mild power potential.

Orioles optioned INF Ryan Adams to Triple-A Norfolk.
It's long overdue. Robert Andino has drawn most of the starts at second base during Brian Roberts' absence, so Adams is much better off getting regular playing time in the minor leagues. The 24-year-old infielder went 5-for-22 (.227) with one RBI in his first taste of the big leagues.
