Phillies reliever Mike Adams felt irritation in his right biceps and will be sidelined for at least a few days, writes Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer. Adams allowed a run in one inning of work in his most recent appearance on May 6 and was not used last night in a situation in which the Phillies could have used him: against the right-hander-heavy middle of the Milwaukee Brewer lineup.

Adams, the team’s set-up reliever behind closer Jonathan Papelbon, carries a 3.92 ERA. He was signed by the Phillies to a two-year, $12 million contract during the off-season, coming off of surgery to alleviate thoracic outlet syndrome in his right shoulder. He insists his current injury isn’t related to the off-season procedure:

“It just seems like I get rid of one thing and something else pops up,” Adams said. “It’s not a big deal. It’s just an irritation.”

Adams’ average fastball velocity, according to PITCHf/x data, is 89.8 m.p.h. in 2013. Two years ago, he threw at an average of 92.7 m.p.h.
