As confirmed on MLB.com’s official transactions page, the Phillies have activated setup man Mike Adams from the 15-day disabled list. Right-handed reliever B.J. Rosenberg was sent to Triple-A Lehigh Valley late Saturday night to clear a roster spot.

Adams landed on the disabled list May 20, retroactive to May 11, with a strain in his back.

The 34-year-old had a 3.00 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 19/6 K/BB ratio in 15 innings before hitting the shelf. He owns a gorgeous 2.31 career ERA and 1.07 career WHIP in over 378 major league innings.

Adams signed a two-year, $12 million free agent contract with Philadelphia this past winter.
