This year the name that has been tossed around is former Rangers right-handed reliever Mike Adams. The 34 year old was a popular choice among fans at the trade deadline in 2011 but he was traded from San Diego to Texas.

The Phillies, in their search for a setup man, are asking around about free-agent righty Koji Uehara, who previously was with the Rangers.
