On the mend, Adams throws bullpen session

MIAMI -- Phillies setup man Mike Adams took a step closer to his return Wednesday when he threw a bullpen session at Marlins Park.

Adams is on the disabled list because of a strained back. He is scheduled to throw another bullpen session Friday in Clearwater, Fla., and make an appearance in a rehab game Monday with Class A Clearwater.

If everything goes well, he could be activated Tuesday or Wednesday.
