Phillies Place Adams On DL, Call Up Giles
CINCINNATI (AP) — The Philadelphia Phillies placed RHP Mike Adams on the 15-day disabled list with inflammation in his right shoulder.
The team made the announcement after Saturday’s 6-5 loss to the Cincinnati Reds. RHP Kenny Giles will be called up from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to fill Adams’ spot on the roster.
Adams is 2-1 with a 2.12 ERA in 17 innings over 19 games, all in relief, for Philadelphia this season. He struck out the only batter he faced in the Phillies’ 8-0 win over the Reds on Friday.
