Ryan Adams 2B LAD 7 Months
Ryan Adams has been suspended 100 games for his second positive test for an amphetamine.
Adams was released by the Dodgers earlier this month, so he'll begin serving the suspension once he latches on with a new organization. The 27-year-old hasn't appeared in the majors since 2011 and is strictly minor league fodder at this point in his career.

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 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 recalled INF Ryan Adams from Triple-A Norfolk.
He went 5-for-22 (.227) with one RBI in his first taste of the big leagues earlier this season. The 24-year-old infielder, a second-round draft pick in 2006, isn't worth a flier in AL-only leagues.
