What made it more questionable was the fact that he did not have the services of typical eighth inning reliever Mike Adams last night.
Adams, who had shoulder surgery in the offseason to repair Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, was sidelined due to discomfort in his back.
Following the Phillies 10-4 loss to the Indians this afternoon, Adams stated that he suffered a setback yesterday while throwing before the game. He required an injection in his back and said that he felt better today than he did yesterday.
This is certainly a situation that Phillies fans want to monitor closely. On the year, Adams is 1-3 with four holds and 19 strikeouts with a 3.00 ERA in 17 games for the Phillies.
