Adams' climb through the Rangers system was been steady, as he advanced one level each year between 2011 and 2015. He began his professional career in Low-A, with the Spokane Indians, then spent 2012 in Single-A, playing for the Hickory Crawdads, and played 2013 in High-A for the Myrtle Beach Pelicans, with whom he was a Carolina League Post-Season All-Star.

He struggled for the first time in 2015, when he batted .227/.287/.352 in 119 games between Frisco and the AAA Round Rock Express.

After he started the 2016 season on the restricted list, then joined Round Rock, hitting .184 in his first 10 games, he was released on June 22nd and signed with the St. Paul Saints of the American Association. There, he hit .253 in 27 games. He played one final season in 2017, starting with the Lincoln Saltdogs and finishing with the Fargo-Moorhead Redhawks.

In one of his last professional games, with Fargo-Moorhead on August 31st, he was involved in two triple plays in the same game against his former team, Lincoln. Both plays went from 3B Josh Mazzola to 2B Brandon Tierney to him, playing 1B, in the 1st and 5th innings. It was an extremely rare occurence that had only happened once at the major league level.
