Phillies set-up man Mike Adams is back on the disabled list for a second time, per CSN Philly’s Mike Wisniewski. His first stint was due to a back strain that kept him out May 11-26. This time, he is dealing with biceps tendinitis. It had been nagging him throughout the month of June, but the right-hander was able to avoid the DL until now.

Adams was commonly found in the 92-94 MPH range with his fastball in previous years, but has averaged under 90 MPH this year in the first year of a two-year, $12 million contract with the Phillies. The 34-year-old hasn’t pitched since Wednesday and has had uncharacteristic control issues at times.

To fill Adams’ spot on the roster, the Phillies promoted J.C. Ramirez, a right-hander acquired along with Phillippe Aumont and Tyson Gillies in the trade that sent Cliff Lee to the Mariners in December 2009. Pitching out of the bullpen, Ramirez posted a 5.30 ERA in 37.1 combined innings between Double-A Reading and Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

    Eh, calculated risk, something Rueben seems to be not very good with them. I mean, they did remove a rib or something from him.
