Mike Adams was considered a question mark for the beginning of spring training after undergoing hernia surgery on January 3, but the Rangers reliever has already started throwing and said yesterday that he’s “not limited at all.”

T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports that Adams is slightly behind schedule compared to the other pitchers in camp, but is slated to throw his first bullpen session Tuesday or Wednesday.

Adams also admitted to Sullivan that he pitched most of the second half with the injury, initially thinking it was a back problem, and “might have had it before” being traded from the Padres to the Rangers on July 30. All of which makes his 2.10 ERA and 25/5 K/BB ratio in 26 innings for the Rangers even more impressive, although Adams was something less than his usual self in the playoffs while allowing 17 baserunners (but only three runs) in 8.1 innings.
