Phillies | Mike Adams still bothered by back

Philadelphia Phillies RP Mike Adams (back) said he's still dealing with back problems Wednesday, May 15, and he was unavailable to throw Tuesday, May 14, and said his back felt "the same" Wednesday. He began having back spasms Sunday, May 12. "I'm playing it day by day and seeing how it progresses," Adams said. He's hoping he'll be ready to pitch this weekend.

Fantasy Tip: The Phils took a risk signing Adams to a hefty contract in the offseason after he underwent surgery to fix Thoracic Outlet Syndrome in his shoulder. Adams hasn't been the same since, and he hasn't thrown in five days. He's not nearly as effective as he used to be as a setup man with the San Diego Padres, and he's won't be challenging Jonathan Papelbon any time soon for ninth-inning duties.
