Adam was acquired by the Reds from the San Francisco Giants, along with RHP Keury Mella, in exchange for RHP Mike Leake on July 31, 2015. In his major-league debut with the Giants at AT&T Park on June 26, 2014, Duvall had recorded his first big-league hit – a home run – off Leake.
In 2017, Adam established career highs in games (157), hits (146), batting average (.249), doubles (31) and total bases (282). He joined Adam Dunn (35 doubles, 40 home runs in 2005) as the only left fielders in Reds history to produce at least 35 doubles and 31 home runs in a single season. With 202 RBI over the last two seasons (2016-17), he ranked second among outfielders in the National League and fourth in the Major Leagues. Adam’s 15 assists led all major-league outfielders in ’17 and were the most by a Reds outfielder since Pete Rose also had 15 assists in 1973. In his first full major-league season in 2016, Adam was selected to his first All-Star team by the players, managers and coaches. He became the ninth player in Reds history with at least 31 doubles, 33 HR and 103 RBI, the first since Joey Votto went 36-37-113 in his 2010 MVP season. Adam is also the 13th player in Reds history with at least 30 doubles, 30 HR and 100 RBI in a season.
Despite playing in only 28 games for the San Francisco Giants in 2014, Adam was rewarded by the club with a World Championship ring.
