Phillies activate Mike Adams from the 60-day disabled list

5 Comments

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.

Red Sox manager Alex Cora said that starter David Price has been shut down for the remainder of the season during Wednesday’s appearance on WEEI’s Ordway, Merloni, and Fauria.

Price, 34, missed nearly a month between August 5-31 with a wrist injury (TFCC cyst). He returned on September 1, but lasted only two innings against the Angels and hasn’t pitched since.

Price ends a disappointing 2019 season with a 4.28 ERA and a 128/32 K/BB ratio in 107 1/3 innings across 22 starts. He’ll enter the fifth year of his seven-year, $217 million contract in 2020. $96 million remains on the deal.
