MIAMI — Mike Adams, red faced after a strenuous bullpen session at Marlins Park, was optimistic he could return from the disabled list before the weekend ends. Pitching coach Rich Dubee later offered a dose of reality.

"He's throwing fine," Dubee said. "But he needs to see some hitters."

Adams (back strain) will travel to Clearwater, Fla., while his teammates head north to Washington. He will throw a live batting practice session Friday. He is scheduled to appear in a game Monday.

That means his return will likely come Wednesday, should everything go well. The Phillies probably would not activate Adams on Tuesday if he throws Monday.
