NBC SportsJo Adell homered in the bottom of the eighth to supply all three Angels runs in a 3-2 win over the Mariners on Sunday.

Adell's homer came off Austin Voth after Ryne Stanek left due to injury. He drove in five of the Angels' 11 runs in the team's three wins over the Mariners the last three days. Perhaps his seven-week slump is finally coming to an end, though now he'll have to avoid the rust that comes with four days off. He finishes the first half at .190/.255/.399 in 291 plate appearance.

NBC SportsJo Adell went 2-for-3 with an RBI on Saturday, leading the Angels to a 2-1 victory over the Mariners.

It's been a tough couple weeks for Adell, after showing some extremely promising signs at the outset of the year, as he's batting .185 (17-for-92) with three homers and one steal over his last 30 games. He's also struck out a whopping 29 times during that span. It's possible he'll never make a sustained breakthrough in the contact department, but he's still capable of putting together hot stretches where he looks like one of the most impactful power/speed combo contributors in the fantasy landscape.

NBC SportsJo Adell (illness) remains out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Mariners.

Adell will sit out his second straight contest due to a respiratory virus. The 25-year-old might not be back until after the All-Star break, but we're not ruling out a return at some point this weekend.

NBC SportsJo Adell was held out of the Angels' starting lineup on Wednesday night due to illness.

Angels' manager Ron Washington told reporters prior to the game that Adell is dealing with the same illness that sidelined Brandon Drury last week. If that's the case, it might be a few days before Adell is able to give it a go again. Kevin Pillar will start in his place and will bat cleanup for the Angels on Wednesday evening against Michael Lorenzen and the Rangers.

NBC SportsMickey Moniak went 2-for-4 with a two-run triple against the Rangers in Monday's defeat.

Moniak had been 4-for-32 with a 12/0 K/BB in his last nine games. He's gotten his strikeout rate down some this year, but his power has suffered in the process, and he hasn't resembled a major leaguer while batting .196/.245/.311. He'll almost certainly get better if the Angels stick with him, but it'd make more sense to commit to Jo Adell instead after Mike Trout returns.
