Phillies setup man Mike Adams admitted to not feeling 100 percent physically on Friday.
Phillies setup man Mike Adams admitted to not being 100 percent physically on Friday, reports Rachel Appel-Vazquez of CSN Philly. The right-hander had surgery to treat thoracic outlet syndrome this offseason.
"I wish I felt a little bit better, it might just be coming off surgery ... we'll monitor it," said the right-hander. "Don't get me wrong, I don't feel bad, but I wish I felt better."
Adams, 34, has battled back, shoulder and oblique problems in the past. He signed a two-year, $12-million contract with the Phillies this offseason after pitching for the Rangers and Padres in recent years.
Pitchers such as Aaron Cook, Kip Wells, Chris Carpenter and Jeremy Bonderman have all had surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome, a condition that involves nerves, arteries or veins going to the arm being compressed behind the collarbone.
Jonathan Papelbon's primary setup man has allowed two runs in seven innings this year, striking out a dozen and walking only two.
