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.
Adams (shoulder) is feeling better according to manager Scott Servais, but he's yet to resume throwing, Sarah Wexler of MLB.com reports.
Adams just went on the injured list July 6, so the fact he's yet to pick up a baseball isn't overly concerning. The right-hander was diagnosed with a Grade 1 shoulder strain and could need several more days before starting a throwing program.
Adams was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a Grade 1 right shoulder strain, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Adams allowed three runs on two hits and a walk over two-thirds of an inning Wednesday, and the shoulder strain could help explain some of his struggles. The 28-year-old had given up only three hits in 12.1 innings across his previous 11 appearances. Adams has no official timetable for his return but isn't expected to face a significant absence.
Adams (1-1) was charged with the loss against the Cardinals on Wednesday after recording just two outs while surrendering three runs on two hits and a walk while recording one strikeout.
Adams came into the ninth inning with a two-run lead and proceeded to load the bases with a pair of singles and a walk. The right-hander was then replaced by Roenis Elias, who allowed all three of his runners to score on an RBI single and a three-run homer surrendered to Tommy Edman. Since being promoted from Triple-A Tacoma in May, Adams has put together a respectable a 3.47 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 41:11 K:BB over 21 relief appearances.
Adams (1-0) was credited with the victory in a win over the Cardinals on Tuesday, firing 1.1 scoreless innings in which he allowed no hits or walks and struck out all four batters he faced.
Adams' first career victory came in fittingly dominant fashion, an extension of how effective he's proven to be since arriving in Seattle. The right-hander needed only 17 pitches to get through Tuesday's outing, and he extended his scoreless-appearance streak to 11 while lowering his ERA to 2.38 and WHIP to 0.97 across 23.2 innings.
Adams claimed his seventh hold of the season in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Brewers, tossing a scoreless inning while giving up no hits and one walk and striking out two.
Adams has notched a hold in each of his past five appearances while submitting an eye-popping 15:2 K:BB across 6.1 innings during that stretch. The right-hander has clearly gained prominence at the back end of the Seattle bullpen, though Roenis Elias has been similarly brilliant of late and remains locked in as the team's closer. Given that Elias is a southpaw, Adams could become manager Scott Servais' top option for saves in situations when Seattle is opposing a string of tough right-handed bats in the ninth inning.
Adams struck out two in a perfect first inning while working as the Mariners' opening pitcher for Sunday's 9-3 win over the Angels.
Wade LeBlanc followed Adams as the primary pitcher and was the pitcher of record after limiting the Angels to two runs in six frames. Adams has now worked as the Mariners' opener on two occasions and could do so again Wednesday in Minnesota, when Tommy Milone's turn comes up.
Adams will serve as the Mariners' opening pitcher for Thursday's game against the Astros, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Seattle will experiment with an opener for the first time this season, with Adams pitching ahead of bulk reliever Tommy Milone in the series finale. Adams hasn't covered more than two innings or tossed more than 33 pitches in any of his relief outings this season, so those likely represent the upper bounds of his workload Thursday.

Adams was never believed to be in serious contention for a spot on the Opening Day roster. However, his 40-man spot should be safe for now after he racked up a whopping 91 strikeouts in 59 innings with Syracuse last season. Control issues have held him back, but if Adams can improve in that regard, he could get another look at the big-league level this summer.

Since the Nationals bullpen has been shaky all year, the right-hander could earn a lengthy stay with the team if he is able to produce at the major-league level.
