So much for the Phillies possibly trading Mike Adams before the July 31 deadline: The rehabbing right-hander has been transferred to the 60-day disabled list, which means he won’t even be eligible to return until early August.
Adams came back from a series of injuries to post a 2.12 ERA and 20 strikeouts in 17 innings, but was shut down in early June with fraying in the labrum of his shoulder. There’s no guarantee he’ll be healthy enough to return at all this season, let alone early enough to show something in time to be traded as he finishes a two-year, $12 million contract.
So far Adams has logged just 42 innings for the Phillies during that deal and at age 35 his strong run as a top-notch setup man may be over.
