Phillies Injury Update: Mike Adams activated

The Philadelphia Phillies have struggled to a 63-74 record this season, but have won nine of their last 13 games. A bright spot was a combined no-hitter from Cole Hamels, Jake Diekman, Ken Giles and Jonathan Papelbon today against the Atlanta Braves. Although far from playoff contention, the Phillies hope to have a strong September to build upon for next season. One pitcher looking to stay healthy and contribute is veteran reliever Mike Adams, who has been activated from the disabled list.

Our own Darius Austin reported on August 27 that Adams moved his rehab to Triple-A Lehigh Valley, pitched a scoreless inning and struck out one.

Adams, who had been out since early June with inflammation in the rotator cuff, has pitched well this season, coming off surgery. Last season, he struggled to a 1-4 record and a 3.96 ERA after being one of the premiere setup men in baseball for most of his career.  In 19 games this season, Adams is 2-1 with a 2.12 ERA. In 17 innings, he's allowed 13 hits and seven walks, while striking out 20.
