Philadelphia Phillies RP Mike Adams (shoulder) was diagnosed with three tears in his shoulder - two to his labrum and one in his rotator cuff - and he could need surgery that would likely keep him out for the rest of the year. Adams hasn't decided on surgery yet, but either way, he probably won't pitch again this season. "It's not going to heal," Adams said. "Maybe I can do some stuff to get the other muscles to take over and strengthen and hold everything else intact." If he doesn't have surgery, he'll need four to six weeks of rehab followed by a throwing program of at least six weeks.
Fantasy Tip: You can go ahead and drop Adams if you own him in cavernous mixed or NL-only leagues. In the event Jonathan Papelbon is traded this summer, Antonio Bastardo now looks like the overwhelming option to take over the closing duties.
