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.
