Adams retired only one batter Sunday against Miami while allowing four runs on two hits and two walks.
The right-hander has been solid out of the bullpen this season, but he simply did not have his best stuff Sunday. Adams threw only seven of 16 pitches for strikes and walked a pair of batters in addition to giving up a double and a single. The four earned runs he allowed were his most in a single game this season and exceeded the total earned runs he had given up over his previous 41 outings combined. Adams' ERA jumped from 1.82 to 2.83 as a result of the poor performance.
Adams (3-2) allowed no hits and one walk in one scoreless inning to earn the win against the Phillies on Sunday.
Adams relieved Blake Snell in the fifth inning, and he picked up his first win since May 29 since the Padres' offense provided plenty of run support early in the contest. The right-hander has allowed just one unearned run in 5.1 innings across his last seven appearances.
Adams (2-2) was tagged with the loss against Philadelphia on Friday. He pitched one-third of an inning, giving up an unearned run on one hit and one walk while striking out one.
The Padres rallied with two runs in in the ninth inning to send the game to extra frames but were unable to push another run across the plate in the top of the 10th. Adams was summoned to face the Phillies in the bottom of the frame and intentionally walked the first batter he faced before striking out Didi Gregorius. However, Brad Miller followed with a double to score the inherited runner, and Adams walked off the mound with his second loss of the season. The run he allowed was unearned, and the right-hander has surrendered only one earned run over his past 32 appearances covering 25.1 innings. He has racked up a 39:13 K:BB over that span.
Adams (2-1) allowed a run on a hit and a walk while failing to record an out, taking the loss Wednesday versus Colorado.
The right-hander walked Trevor Story on five pitches, and Story stole second base. Charlie Blackmon then hit a walkoff single that left Adams with his first loss of the season. He entered Wednesday with no runs allowed in his last five innings. Adams has a 2.25 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 36:12 K:BB across 24 innings this year. He's added five holds and a blown save across 30 appearances as a part of the bridge to closer Mark Melancon.
Adams (elbow) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Saturday.
Adams was shut down in early March due to a minor elbow issue, but he's been pitching at the alternate training site and has now been cleared to return to game action. The right-hander only made three relief appearances for the Padres in 2020 but could serve in a setup role this year if he can remain healthy. Nabil Crismatt was sent down in a corresponding move.
Adams (elbow) has been pitching at the Padres' alternate training site, but his return date remains undetermined, AJ Cassvell of MLB.com reports.
Adams was shut down with what has been described as a minor elbow issue in early March and was placed on the 10-day injured list near the end of spring training. He's eligible to come off the IL this Thursday, but there's no guarantee that he'll be activated immediately despite the fact that he has been throwing at the team's alternate site. "We don't [want] to send somebody back before they're ready -- either health or to their standards of being able to get Major League hitters out," manager Jayce Tingler stated when discussing Adams and fellow recovering reliever Pierce Johnson (groin).
Padres manager Jayce Tingler said Monday that Adams will open the season on the 10-day injured list due to a minor elbow issue, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
After finishing the 2020 season on the IL while recovering from ACL surgery, Adams received full clearance ahead of spring training. The elbow issue surfaced soon thereafter, however, as Adams hasn't made a Cactus League appearance since March 7 due to the injury. TIngler stressed that Adams isn't dealing with any sort of long-term setback, so the right-hander could be ready to join the San Diego bullpen at some point shortly after the minimum 10 days.
Adams is fully recovered from ACL surgery and healthy for the 2021 season, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Adams was acquired from the Mariners to bolster the Padres' bullpen just prior to the trade deadline last season. He wasn't particularly effective in the short stint with his new club, but disclosed that he was still getting back to full strength after recovering from ACL surgery. Reports to this point in camp suggest that his velocity has returned and his command has been sharp. Though not likely to factor into the saves picture, Adams could occupy a high-leverage role in the Padres' bullpen.
The Padres reinstated Adams (knee) from the 60-day injured list Sunday.
One of several Mariners dealt to San Diego ahead of the Aug. 31 trade deadline, Adams is finally ready to make his Padres debut after a lengthy recovery from the torn ACL he sustained just under a year ago. Prior to suffering the injury, Adams enjoyed a breakthrough 2019 season out of the Seattle bullpen, posting a 3.94 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 53:16 K:BB in 32 innings. If he can quickly rediscover that form over the final week of the regular season, Adams could emerge as a key piece in the San Diego bullpen during the playoffs.
Adams (knee) was traded from the Mariners to the Padres on Sunday in a trade involving Ty France several players, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
Adams has been recovering since undergoing knee surgery in September of 2019, but he appears to be nearing his return to the mound. The right-hander had been throwing to begin the season, but he'll have to face live hitters at some point before he's cleared to return to game action. Adams made 30 appearances (two starts) with the Nationals and Mariners in his first major-league season in 2019, and he posted a 3.94 ERA and 53:16 K:BB over 32 innings.
Adams (knee) is throwing regularly at the Mariners' spring training facility in Peoria, Arizona, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
The right-handed reliever is working out in Peoria instead of the team's alternate training site in Tacoma so as not to count against the 60-man player pool. Adams' recovery from October knee surgery could be nearing its end, considering it's been reported he's been close to activation in recent weeks. However, he'll likely need to transition to Tacoma and face live hitters before he's deemed ready to jump into game action.
Adams (knee) is unlikely to rejoin the Mariners during their upcoming road trip, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
The Mariners were hopeful that Adams would be able to throw a live bullpen session this weekend and return as early as Monday, but that's unlikely to happen since his knee isn't yet at 100 percent. The right-hander underwent surgery to repair a torn ACL in October and has been recovering ever since. The team is scheduled to return to Seattle on Aug. 19, and Adams could return then if his knee returns to full strength during the road trip.
Adams (knee) could be activated for the Mariners' upcoming road trip, which begins Aug. 10 against the Rangers, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Adams is working his way back from surgery to repair a torn ACL, a procedure he underwent back in September. The league's COVID-19 protocols make it difficult for players to get work in during a road trip while not on the roster, but it's possible Adams is ready to go before the team departs.
Adams (knee) is picking up his intensity in throwing sessions but remains without a firm timetable for his 2020 debut, in part due to the Mariners' upcoming schedule, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports. "I'd love to get him off the mound or face some hitters before we go out on the road," manager Scott Servais said. "We just don't have as much time or field access on the road as we did in the past, so to do a live BP or simulated game on the road is really challenging."
The Mariners are currently in the midst of a homestand that runs through next Sunday. Based on Servais' comments, it's therefore likely Adams has to wait until at least Aug. 19, when Seattle returns from a nine-day road trip, to be activated. COVID-19 protocols do not allow players to be flown in during a road trip, either, meaning Adams would have to demonstrate he's ready for activation over the course of the next week to have a chance to travel with the team.
Adams (knee) will remain on the 60-day injured list to begin the season, Lauren Smith of The News Tribune reports.
Adams had been working to return to full strength for the regular season after undergoing surgery on a torn ACL in September, but the team will give him more time to recover rather than rushing him back into action. Manager Scott Servais said that the team may have rushed the right-hander too much during camp. "We're slow playing him a little bit," Servais said. It's unclear when Adams could make his debut this season, but he could pitch in higher-leverage situations when he's ready to return.
Adams could begin the season on the 10-day injured list while he continues to recover from knee surgery, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Adams underwent knee surgery during the offseason and pushed hard to work his way back to action, but manager Scott Servais said Wednesday that the team is unsure of whether he'll be ready to start the season. As a result, the team could place him on the 10-day injured list in order to provide him with more time. When he's ready to play, the right-hander could get some save chances with Yoshihisa Hirano (illness) working his way back to action.
Adams is one of 11 relievers that could make the Mariners' 30-man roster, Corey Brock of The Athletic reports.
Adams has a good chance of picking up a few saves, though Yoshihisa Hirano just reported back to camp. This highlights just how crowded the Mariners' bullpen will be, though there's a good chance that saves could be shared by multiple relievers again this season.
Adams (knee) was identified by manager Scott Servais as a candidate for some closing opportunities with Yoshihisa Hirano (undisclosed) now on the injured list, although the Mariners skipper noted Wednesday he plans to utilize more than one pitcher in the ninth-inning role, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Adams has seemingly corroborated he's over last season's ACL injury, as he's been facing hitters in summer camp. The right-hander has some closing experience from his time in the minors, and his mid-90s fastball is certainly a tool that could serve him well in high-leverage situations.
Adams (knee) faced hitters in a live batting practice session Wednesday, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Aside from allowing a long home run to teammate Kyle Lewis, Adams looked sharp in what was his first appearance against hitters since he tore the ACL in his left knee Sept. 21. The Mariners consider Adams a full go for summer camp, but it wouldn't be surprising if the coaching staff elected to use him mostly in simulated-game settings initially rather than intrasquad or exhibition contests. In any case, the expectation is that Adams will be a member of the Opening Day bullpen, likely handling a high-leverage role after ranking third in the American League among relievers in 2019 with a 14.8 K/9 rate.
Adams, who was confirmed to be completely recovered from offseason surgery shortly before summer camp started, has impressed manager Scott Servais in early summer camp workouts, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports. "The knee is 100%," Servais said. "I saw him throw a full bullpen [session] yesterday and it was coming out hot. He looked really good. No hesitations, not holding back at all."
The hard-throwing right-hander finished third in AL strikeout rate (14.8 K/9) in 2019 after an early-May trade from the Nationals, so his full availability is integral to the Mariners' bullpen outlook. Adams is likely due for primary setup duties behind a potential closing duo of Yoshihisa Hirano and Matt Magill in the coming season.
