Phillies decline 2015 option on Mike Adams

After a pair of injury wrecked seasons the Phillies have declined their $6 million option on right-hander Mike Adams for 2015.

Signed to a two-year, $12 million contract after a five-year run as one of the elite setup men in baseball, Adams continued to pitch well for the Phillies but was limited to a total of 44 innings in two seasons.

He had a 3.50 ERA and 44/19 K/BB ratio in those 44 frames, so even at age 36 he should have plenty of interest from teams wanting to sign him to an incentive-laden one-year deal.
