Mike Adams has rejoined the Phillies’ bullpen, coming off the 60-day disabled list after being sidelined since June with a shoulder injury.

Adams has thrown just 42 total innings for the Phillies with a month remaining in a two-year, $12 million contract and the 36-year-old right-hander will try to show that he’s at least somewhat healthy before hitting the market as a free agent again this offseason.

Adams has a sparkling 2.37 ERA in 10 seasons, but he’s topped 60 innings just three times and has been totally healthy in back-to-back seasons exactly once.

Before being activated from the DL he made three minor-league rehab appearances at Triple-A, allowing just one hit in three scoreless innings.

    He’s good but he’s hardly around long enough to help you.

      Is he good? Who even knows anymore? Its been almost 3 years since he’s pitched any amount to get a decent sample size to tell.

    Glad he’s healthy enough to finish out his contract. Just don’t see where they can fit him in inning wise with the emergence of Giles and Diekman.

      I know, let him pitch the 1st inning of all of Kyle Kendrick’s remaining starts.
