|Mike Adams waiting for MRI results|
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(5/17/13) Phillies reliever Mike Adams had an MRI taken on his back Friday morning, as his injury has not improved. Adams told the News Journal Friday that his back feels the same, and a trip to the disabled list will not be considered until the results of the MRI come back.
Adams has not pitched in over a week due to his lingering back injury.

(5/15/13) Phillies reliever Mike Adams may have an MRI on his back Thursday or Friday after taking Wednesday off from baseball-related activites, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
"[Thursday] if I come in and don’t feel like I’m progressing or so, I may ask to go to an MRI on Friday or [Thursday], just so I have a better idea on what’s going on and what the timetable may be about the severity of what’s going on," Adams told the Inquirer Wednesday.
"I don’t know the true timetable on what’s going on right now," Adams added.

(5/14/13) Phillies reliever Mike Adams said Tuesday his back is still as big as a problem as it was on Sunday, when he couldn't pitch against the Diamondbacks. He said he hopes he isn't out for too long, according to MLB.com.
"Hopefully it kind of goes away here pretty quickly," he said. "It’s kind of weird. I’ve never had anything like it before. I threw that morning and felt fine. I went through BP and the last five minutes of BP it kind of grabbed me."
Adams is 1-3 with a 3.00 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and four holds through 17 appearances.
|Mike Adams dealing with back issues |
|by Adam Moore | CBSSports.com|
(5/12/13) Phillies reliever Mike Adams was not available for Sunday's series finale against the Diamondbacks due to back spasms, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Adams said his back tightened up near the end of batting practice.
"It's the first time I ever had to bow out of a game," Adams said. "I've had little spasms before but nothing to this extent."
The right-hander is day-to-day.
|Mike Adams has been among the more reliable middle relievers in baseball for the past five seasons, compiling a 1.98 ERA and 0.99 WHIP while striking out a batter per inning over that span. His 2012 campaign with the Rangers produced one of his less-spectacular lines in recent memory (3.27 ERA, 1.40 WHIP), but it was hurt by a 4.15 ERA in nine September appearances, brought on by a neck sprain and thoracic outlet syndrome. Adams had surgery for the TOS, and should be ready for 2013, where he will pitch in middle relief for the Phillies. Consider Adams a deep NL-only option, able to help in ERA and WHIP while providing some strikeouts, as well. (Updated 1/8/13)|
