Mike Adams has had to endure a lot of injury problems since his time in Texas.
After being diagnosed at the end of 2012 with Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, Adams went on the disabled list after just 28 appearances with the Phillies with biceps tendinitis. Biceps tendinitis evolved into a torn labrum, which was accompanied by a torn rotator cuff, and then that was fixed by season-ending shoulder surgery. In December, the 35-year old righty underwent surgery to repair a sports hernia.
Now, Matt Gelb of the Philly Inquirer reports that Adams is taking it slow and easy to ensure he’ll be back at 100% for the Phillies. When will that be?
“If it’s late April, it’s late April,” Adams told Gelb.
Before he was shut down for the season, Adams was the setup man for Jonathan Papelbon, with a 3.96 ERA over 25 innings.
