Philadelphia Phillies RP Mike Adams (shoulder, hernia) is feeling good after shoulder surgery and thinks he can be ready for Opening Day March 31. "But at the same time I'm going to try not to set opening day as my final date. I don't want to be ready Opening Day then all of a sudden I'm back on the disabled list in July or August or even sooner," Adams said. He also had hernia surgery after the 2013 season, but he said his shoulder was the main concern. He's currently throwing long toss at 100 feet and will resume bullpens in mid-February. Adams thinks he'll need around 10 spring outings in order to be ready. The Phillies may choose to go the cautious route and hold him back for a few weeks in the regular season. RPs Antonio Bastardo and Jake Diekman can also work the eighth inning.
