Phillies admit Mike Adams is a risk

Otto Greule Jr

The Philadelphia Phillies are excited about the new addition to their bullpen, Mike Adams. But GM Ruben Amaro Jr. is aware that he took a risk in signing Adams.

The Philadelphia Phillies do not exactly have a great history of signing older relief pitchers to short-term deals. The Phils hope that signing 34-year-old Mike Adams to a two-year contract worth $12 million is a risk that pays off.

General manager Ruben Amaro Jr. knows that Adams is a gamble. Part of the risk involves a condition from which Adams suffers known as thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS).

Bob Brookover from the Philadelphia Inquirer provides fans with an excellent analysis of how TOS could affect Adams and the Phillies in 2013. Click here to read the full article.
