The Phillies will not be activating their 2015 option on injury-riddled relief pitcher Mike Adams.
The 36-year-old righthander was signed by the Phillies in December 2012 on a $12 million, two-year deal (with the option for a third year). He inherited the set-up role and appeared in 28 games that season, throwing 25 innings pitched and amassing a 3.96 ERA with 23 strikeouts and 11 walks.
In July 2013, he elected to have right shoulder surgery for a torn rotator cuff after underperforming out of the bullpen. He would not return to the roster until the following April.
