Description: Philadelphia reliever Mike Adams has opted for a platelet-rich plasma injection over surgery. SOURCE: Matt Gelb, Philadelphia Inquirer
Insight: Earlier in the week, we found out that Adams has a torn labrum as well as a torn rotator cuff in his right shoulder. Barring some kind of medical miracle, his 2013 season is over.

Description: Things aren't looking good for Phillies reliever Mike Adams. An examination Tuesday revealed three tears in his shoulder that could require surgery, according to Philly.com.
Insight: Adams has two tears in his labrum and one in his rotator cuff. Even if he opts for rehab over surgery, he's likely done for the season.

Description: Surgery could be in Mike Adams' future. SOURCE: Matt Gelb, Philadelphia Inquirer
Insight: The Philadelphia reliever appears to be dealing with a labrum issue. If Adams has to go under the knife, he can kiss the rest of this season goodbye.
 
6/22/2013 7:19:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia relief pitcher Mike Adams is headed back to the disabled list.
Insight: He's been battling biceps tendinitis for almost two weeks. The Phillies haven't given a timetable for his return.
 
6/8/2013 11:30:00 AM
Description: Phillies righthander Mike Adams is questionable for Saturday's game against Milwaukee with right biceps tendinitis.
Insight: That explains why he wasn't brought in on Friday night in a 4-4 game. Consider him day-to-day for now.
 
5/26/2013 11:14:00 AM
Description: Phillies righthander Mike Adams has been activated from the DL.
Insight: He missed two weeks with a strained back. Adams (1-3, 3.00 ERA) is a reliable setup man but not really a fantasy option unless you play in a league where holds count for points.
 
5/20/2013 8:03:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia reliever Mike Adams has been placed on the 15-day DL.
Insight: Adams has been battling a strained back. He's 1-3 this season with a 3.00 ERA in 17 relief appearances.
 
5/13/2013 10:52:00 AM
Description: Phillies setup man, Mike Adams is not expected to be available for Tuesday's game against Cleveland due to back spasms.
Insight: Adams hasn't pitched since Friday when he gave up a walk and a hit in Arizona. The team doesn't expect to have to put him on the disabled list, but he is likely to need a few more days off.
 
4/28/2013 10:38:00 AM
Description: Phillies new setup man, Mike Adams, is questionable for Sunday's game against the New York Mets with a sore hip.
Insight: Adams hasn't pitched since Wednesday, but has already appeared in 11 games this season and is a huge loss for the Phillies bullpen even though he hasn't pitched up to his capability (1-2, 4.00 ERA, 1.44 WHIP).
 
12/21/2012 1:43:00 PM
Description: Phillies new setup man, Mike Adams, had Thoracic Outlet Syndrome last season which explains his mediocre statistics.
Insight: Adams regressed last season to a 3.27 ERA and 1.39 WHIP after posting a 1.71 ERA and 0.90 WHIP in 236 games over his previous four seasons. If 100 percent healthy he could bounce back, but unless your league uses a "holds" category, he'll have minimal fantasy value as the setup man to closer Jonathan Papelbon.

Description: Reliever Mike Adams has signed with the Philadelphia Phillies for $12 million over two years, pending a physical. The deal includes a vesting option. SOURCE: Ken Rosenthal, FOX Sports
Insight: Adams regressed last season to a 3.27 ERA and 1.39 WHIP after posting a 1.71 ERA and 0.90 WHIP in 236 games over his previous four seasons. He'll have minimal fantasy appeal as the setup man to closer Jonathan Papelbon.
 
4/4/2012 11:35:00 AM
Description: Mike Adams left Tuesday's game after taking a batted ball off his leg. He faced just two hitters.
Insight: Adams recently returned from a hernia and now will deal with a calf injury. He's a strikeout-per-inning guy and the setup man for Joe Nathan. He'll have value in leagues which use the hold category and AL-only leagues.
 
7/16/2010 11:07:00 AM
Description: Mike Adams is going on the disabled list today because of an oblique strain. SOURCE: Ken Rosenthal on Twitter
Insight: He has pitched nicely this season, but he is nothing more than a low-end middle reliever in deeper fantasy leagues.
 
3/3/2010 11:31:00 PM
Description: The Union-Tribune reports that Adams is certainly someone to keep your eye on in the Padres' bullpen.
Insight: Adams came back from right shoulder surgery last season and had an ERA of 0.26 in his last 34 appearances last season. He struck out 44 batters over that span. (SportsBuff.com)
