As confirmed on’s official transactions page, the Phillies have activated setup man Mike Adams from the 15-day disabled list. Right-handed reliever B.J. Rosenberg was sent to Triple-A Lehigh Valley late Saturday night to clear a roster spot.

Adams landed on the disabled list May 20, retroactive to May 11, with a strain in his back.

The 34-year-old had a 3.00 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 19/6 K/BB ratio in 15 innings before hitting the shelf. He owns a gorgeous 2.31 career ERA and 1.07 career WHIP in over 378 major league innings.

Adams signed a two-year, $12 million free agent contract with Philadelphia this past winter.

    And not a moment too soon, I’m not sure they can keep surviving the combined antics of Durbin/Bastardo/Horst in that manner.

      Durbin and Horst look shellshocked out there. It’s like they’re in shock that Charlie keeps running them out there. I didn’t think there was any way they were going to hold down the Nats last night. I’m also continually in shock that there aren’t any better relief pitchers available somewhere in the world than these two. Has Ruben scoured the local beer leagues yet?

      Bastardo has the best ERA in the bullpen, outside of Papelbon @ 2.25… what more do you want from him? Stutes has a 0.0 but he’s only pitched 1 inning. Durbin and Horst need to go.

        His BB9 rate is the highest of his career, His K9 rate is at his lowest since his first year. A 16/11 Strikeout to walk ratio is a career worst. His WHIP is 1.5 which is very high for a reliever who has to pitch in high leverage situations. His low ERA is masking the fact that he gets into trouble often and has to work out of it or is bailed out by other guys. I’d like to see more 1-2-3 outings, right now 3 out of every 4 appearances result in a man getting on base or worse. He isn’t 2008 Brad Lidge. I could do with less adventures and more reliability when he’s on the mound.
