GM Jerry Dipoto said Saturday that Adams (knee) may be healthy when play begins for 2020, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
The 28-year-old resumed throwing in March the same day spring training was suspended, and he's continued his rehab from knee surgery away from the Mariners' spring facility. Adams has also been running at 100 percent in 30-yard sprints, so it appears he's mostly rebuilding his endurance for once the season resumes. The right-hander appeared in 30 games between Washington and Seattle last season, posting a 3.94 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 53:16 K:BB with 10 holds over 32 innings.
Adams (knee) had just resumed throwing the day that commissioner Rob Manfred suspended spring training, Eno Sarris of The Athletic reports.
Adams has continued throwing on his own as he makes his comeback from October ACL surgery. The 28-year-old has been assisted by some wearable technology, as he's donning a Motus sleeve that tracks stress on the elbow and provides data that Adams has been transmitting to Mariners coaches so they can monitor his daily workload. Adams has been solid during three separate big-league stints with the Nationals and Mariners over the last three seasons. His most extensive stretch in the majors came in 2019, when he logged a career-high 30 appearances in Seattle and produced a 3.94 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and stellar 40.8 percent strikeout rate across 32 innings.
Adams (knee) was moved to the 60-day injured list Wednesday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Adams was placed on the injured list in order to make a roster spot available for the Mariners to sign Taijuan Walker. Adams is still recovering from right knee surgery to repair his torn ACL, a procedure originally delayed due to the discovery of a blood clot in his left calf. The 28-year-old accumulated a 3.77 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 51:14 K:BB across 31 innings with Seattle in 2019. If Adams doesn't experience any significant setbacks during the rehab process, it is likely he'll be able to return to the Mariners bullpen around June.
Adams (knee) has been unable to undergo ACL surgery on his left knee due to the discovery of a blood clot in his left calf, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
The clot is a byproduct of the knee injury, and Adams is already on blood-thinning medication to address the issue. The right-handed reliever will fly home to Florida on Monday and expects to have the surgery in about "a week or two" once doctors provide clearance for the procedure.
Adams, who is scheduled to undergo surgery in the near future to address a torn ACL and meniscus damage in his left knee, isn't expected to be ready to pitch for the Mariners until June at the earliest, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.
Adams is expected to face a 6-to-8-month rehab and recovery period once the surgery is performed, but the Mariners are apparently planning to proceed cautiously with the right-handed reliever and keep him on the shelf beyond that projected timeline. Though Adams finished his first season with the Mariners with a 3.77 ERA in 29 appearances, his 15.1 K/9 rate was the fourth-best mark in baseball among all pitchers who covered at least 30 innings. He'll likely be ticketed for a high-leverage role out of the bullpen next summer once he's healthy again.
Adams underwent an MRI on Sunday that revealed damage to the ACL in his left knee, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports. He'll require surgery to repair his knee and is expected to need 6-to-8 months to recover.
According to Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle, Adams also relayed that he sustained meniscus damage to the knee and will delay his surgery until the inflammation he's been experiencing calms down. The health setback represents a disappointing conclusion to what had been a strong season for Adams, who emerged as a dominant relief weapon for Seattle in June before a lat injury kept him on the shelf for nearly two months. Adams rejoined the big club as a September callup, only for the knee injury he suffered Saturday to present a major obstacle heading into the offseason. The right-hander should have a key spot in the Seattle bullpen waiting for him once he's healthy again, but the timing of the knee procedure means he'll likely open 2020 on the injured list.
Manager Scott Servais said Sunday that Adams will "probably" be shut down for the season after hyperextending his knee during a collision in Saturday's 7-6 win over the Orioles in 13 innings, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Though the results of the MRI that Adams underwent earlier Sunday haven't been revealed, the Mariners skipper acknowledged that there's little to gain by bringing the reliever back at this point in the season even if he avoids a major setback. The 28-year-old proved to be a pleasant surprise and was at times dominant during his 29 appearances out of the bullpen this season, posting a 3.94 ERA and 53:16 K:BB in 32 innings.
Adams will have an MRI on his hyperextended left knee Sunday, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Adams left Saturday's contest after a collision at first base as he was trying to cover a play. While the team hopes the injury is not serious, it was also noted that Adams is likely to be shut down for the remainder of the season.
Adams was diagnosed with a hyper-extended left knee after exiting Saturday's contest early, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.
Adams was originally believed to have suffered an ankle injury while he was covering first base. He's set to receive an MRI either Sunday or Monday, but initial indications are that the injury is not serious. That said, there's a chance Adams does not pitch again before the close of the campaign.
Adams exited Saturday's contest after injuring his ankle while covering first base, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.
Adams was able to face only two batters in the seventh inning prior to suffering the injury. The severity is still unknown, though it's unlikely the Mariners would push him to return this season if any lingering concerns remain.
Adams (2-2) was credited with the victory in a win over the White Sox on Sunday, firing a perfect ninth inning during which he struck out the side.
The 28-year-old put a recent three-appearance rough patch behind him in impressive fashion with Sunday's showing. Adams had given up a total of four earned runs across the 3.2 frames that encompassed his three previous trips to the mound, resulting in both his second loss and blown save of the season. Adams now has a trio of multi-strikeout outings over his last six outings, pushing his K/9 on the season to an eye-popping 15.3 across 30.2 innings with the Nationals and Mariners.
The Mariners reinstated Adams (lat) from the 10-day injured list Sunday. He tossed a scoreless seventh inning in the Mariners' 11-3 win over the Rangers.
Adams struck out two and worked around a base hit and double to lower his ERA to 3.55. The appearance was Adams' first with the Mariners in the second half after a lat strain kept him sidelined for nearly two months. Now that he's healthy again, Adams could gain a foothold in the Mariners' late-inning mix, which has been highly unsettled since Roenis Elias and Hunter Strickland were shipped to Washington on July 31.
Adams (lat) fired a scoreless seventh inning in Triple-A Tacoma's loss to Las Vegas on Sunday, recording one strikeout.
This was Adams' second and final scheduled rehab appearance with the Rainiers before his assignment gets moved over to Double-A Arkansas. The right-hander breezed through both of his Triple-A outings, firing a pair of scoreless frames while recording three strikeouts. Adams is expected to rejoin the Mariners when rosters expand Sept. 1.
Adams (lat), who fired a scoreless inning in which he recorded two strikeouts during Triple-A Tacoma's loss to Las Vegas on Thursday, will log another appearance with the Rainiers before continuing his rehab assignment with Double-A Arkansas, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Adams successfully hurled live BP on Monday and then turned in an encouraging outing with Tacoma to kick off his rehab assignment. The Mariners haven't specified how many games he'll need in the minors, though he's expected to be reinstated from the injured list in September when rosters expand to 40.
Adams (lat) threw live batting practice with Triple-A Tacoma on Monday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Adams felt good following Monday's throwing session, likely indicating that a rehab stint is on the horizon. The right-hander has been on the 10-day injured list since July 6 due to a Grade 1 shoulder strain, so he figures to need a handful of outings in the minors prior to being activated.
Adams' (lat) bullpen session Tuesday was limited to fastballs, but he's slated to add in breaking pitches during his next session later this week, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Adams seems to finally be gaining some momentum in his recovery. The right-hander has been on the injured list since early July, so when he does eventually work his way up to a rehab assignment, it's likely to be a fairly lengthy one.
Adams (lat) will throw a bullpen session Tuesday, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Adams has been throwing from 140 feet within the last week, and he's finally been given the green light to toss a side session. He's been on the shelf since July 6 with a Grade 1 shoulder strain, so he'll likely need to throw a bullpen or two before progressing to a sim game or live batting practice.
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.
Adams (shoulder), who'd been shut down from throwing earlier in the week, has been cleared to resume his prior activity level beginning Saturday, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
A previous report had Adams throwing from a distance of 105 feet just over a week ago, but pain from scar tissue in his strained right shoulder led to a pause in his throwing program. The right-hander will need to demonstrate an ability to throw from 120 feet before progressing to a bullpen session as the next step in his recovery.
Adams (shoulder) is playing catch from 105 feet and is working toward a bullpen session, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports.
Adams will need to work up to 120 feet before he's able to partake in a bullpen session, but this latest reports implies he's not very far off that benchmark. The right-hander, who'd generated 16 scoreless appearances over 22 outings prior to his injury, will go on a rehab assignment before his eventual activation.
