We heard earlier this week that Phillies reliever Mike Adams was diagnosed with two tears in his right labrum and one in his rotator cuff, but it turns out that he will not have surgery. At least not yet.
According to Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com, Adams will go the rehab route rather than have surgery. The plan is for him to receive a platelet-rich plasma injection tomorrow and see how his shoulder responds. He’ll still likely miss the rest of the season and surgery could be an option if he fails to make progress.
Adams, 34, posted a 3.96 ERA and 23/11 K/BB ratio over 25 innings prior to landing on the disabled list last week. He signed a two-year, $12 million deal with the Phillies over the winter and is still owed $7 million in 2014.
