The Philadelphia Phillies have reached and agreement with free-agent reliever Mike Adams on two-year deal worth $12 million. The deal is pending a physical.
Adams had a 3.27 ERA in 61 appearances for the Rangers in 2012, and will serve as a set-up man for closer Jonathan Papelbon.
Last year the Phillies lost 12 games, when holding a lead entering the eighth-inning, and Adams should immediately provide improvement in the late innings for Philadelphia.
Admas underwent surgery in October to remove a rib that caused Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, a numbing sensation in his fingers.
He is expected to be ready by spring training.
The Phillies continue addressing specific needs of the team.
The team signed John Lannan to a one-year deal worth $2.5 million with another $2.5 million in bonus incentives and provides Philadelphia a left-hander for the rotation.
Lannan was non-tendered by the Washington Nationals last month.
Lannan will replace the void left in the rotation after trading Worley.
