Phillies place Mike Adams on 15-day DL with back strain
Jonathan Papelbon will be without his top setup man, as the Phillies placed right-hander Mike Adams on the 15-day DL with a back strain.
The Phillies have placed right-hander Mike Adams on the 15-day DL with a back strain. The move is retroactive to May 11, one day after his last appearance. Catcher Humberto Quintero has been called up to take his roster spot.
Adams, 34, has a 3.00 ERA and 1.33 WHIP in 15 innings this year. He's struck out 19 and walked six. Adams told Todd Zolecki of MLB.com that he plans to throw Thursday and Saturday at the team's spring training complex in Clearwater, and he hopes to be activated off the DL when eligible next Monday.
Quintero, 33, hit .250 in seven games with the Phillies earlier this year. With Carlos Ruiz battling a hamstring injury, Philadelphia needed to add a third catcher for the time being.
