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.
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.
