Player Profile: Nathan Adcock

I have one card of Nathan Adcock, from 2011 Topps.

Playing career: Nathan Adcock was drafted by the Mariners in 2006, traded to the Pirates in 2009, and selected by the Royals in the Rule 5 draft this past offseason. He made his major league debut on Opening Day, 2011.

Where he is now: In 18 games he is 1-1 with a 5.23 ERA. He last pitched on Tuesday, a scoreless inning in a loss to Tampa Bay.

My memories: Never heard of him until I got this card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is eighth when you type Nathan A, between Nathan Anderson, an actor, and Nathan Airchime, a railroad whistle. There do not appear to be any other prominent Nathan Adcocks.

Coming up next: Jamie Allen.
