Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro, Jr. confirmed this afternoon that left-hander Cole Hamels could be activated as soon as April 22, but they should get some other players back from the disabled list even sooner.
Galvis suffered a cut on his left knee in March and eventually had an abscess removed, during which an infection was detected. It turned out to be Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), which is resistant to many antibiotics. Fortunately, the 24-year-old has made steady progress since then, recently appearing in a pair of rehab games with High-A Clearwater.
Adams is making his way back from shoulder and sports hernia surgeries. The 35-year-old has struck out five batters in 2 1/3 innings over three rehab appearances with High-A Clearwater and will help set up for Jonathan Papelbon when he’s ready to return. He’s making $7 million this year.
