Phillies head athletic trainer Scott Sheridan provided updates on various injured Phillies. The news is (mostly) negative.
Mike Adams did not respond to the conservative treatment for numerous tears in his shoulder. He will likely undergo surgery that could sideline him for the beginning of 2014. Adams is owed $7 million next season.
Lefthander Jeremy Horst's season is likely over. Soreness in his elbow recurred during a rehab stint at triple-A Lehigh Valley. He visited noted orthopedist James Andrews for a second opinion and was injected with a platelet-rich plasma shot. He will not throw for at least six weeks.
Ryan Howard has begun his rehab from knee surgery. His stitches will be removed Tuesday. Phillies head athletic trainer Scott Sheridan said Howard's "range of motion is back in full."
