The Phillies are close to signing Mike Adams to a two-year contract with a vesting option for 2015, reports Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports. The team expects the deal to be finalized as soon as today.
Adams, 34, pitched to a 3.27 ERA with 7.7 K/9 and 2.9 BB/9 in 52 1/3 relief innings for the Rangers last season as Joe Nathan's primary setup man. He had offseason surgery for Thoracic Outlet Syndrome and is expected to be ready in time for Opening Day. Adams is represented by Josh Yates at ACES.
