The Philadelphia Inquirer’s Matt Gelb reports that the Phillies placed reliever Mike Adams on the 15-day disabled list with inflammation of his right rotator cuff. As a result, the Phillies promoted Ken Giles from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
Adams, 35, started the season on the disabled list as he was still recovering from surgery on his labrum last July. He was effective since making his season debut on April 18. In 17 innings, the right-hander posted a 2.12 ERA with a 20/7 K/BB ratio, working mostly in the seventh and eighth innings.
Giles, 23, has the Phillies’ fan base excited because of his impressive numbers in the minor leagues. The right-hander can reach triple digits with his fastball, and as a result, he posted a 1.88 ERA with a 38/13 K/BB ratio in 28 2/3 innings split almost evenly between Double-A Reading and Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
