The Phillies have signed 34-year old righty reliever Mike Adams to a 2-year, $14 million dollar deal. Adams pitched in 61 games (0 starts) for the Rangers last year and he was 5-3 with 1 save, a 3.27 ERA and a 1.40 WHIP. He has now pitched in 358 games (0 starts) in his first eight years in the majors and he is 18-15 with 4 saves, a 2.28 ERA and a 1.06 WHIP. Adams will become Jonathan Papelbon’s new set-up man. I really like this pickup for the Phillies as Adams is a pretty darn good pitcher.
