Adams expected to join Phils on Sunday


WASHINGTON -- Phillies setup man Mike Adams will rejoin the team's bullpen a little earlier than expected.

Adams threw a bullpen session Friday in Clearwater, Fla., and the Phillies said he will be activated Sunday in time for their series finale against the Nationals. Adams has been on the disabled list since May 11 with a strained back.

"While he was a little rusty after not having thrown in several days, he physically felt fine," Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said in a statement.

Adams had been scheduled to make a rehab appearance Monday with Class A Clearwater, but apparently the Phillies believe there is no need.

The Phillies will make a corresponding roster move before Sunday's game.
