Mariners' Austin Adams: Continues ramping up throwing
Adams (lat) has increased his throwing distance off flat ground to 140 feet and could be cleared for a bullpen session within the next few days, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Adams has been sidelined since July 4, so after he advances to mound work and facing live hitters in batting practice, he'll presumably require multiple appearances in the minors before being deemed ready for activation. The right-handed reliever has already experienced one setback related to scar tissue in his shoulder, however, so the Mariners may be particularly cautious with the pace of his recovery.
