Found June 22, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
The Philadelphia Phillies have placed relief pitcher Mike Adams on the 15-day disabled list.  Relief pitcher J.C. Ramirez was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley and infielder Michael Martinez was designated for reassignment. As reported by Mike Wisniewski at CSNPhilly.com, "This will be the second stint on the DL this season for Adams, who was previously out of action from May 11-26 with a right back strain. This time it's bicep tendonitis that will keep the 34-year-old out of action until at least July 5." Adams was signed in the off season to be the setup man for closer Jonathan Papelbon. Although Adams has a career 2.39 earned run average in 386 games, he has struggled this season due to injuries. He last pitched on Wednesday night when he threw a scoreless inning against the Washington Nationals.  In 28 games this season, Adams is 1-4 with a 3.96 earned run average.

Stop with the Hamels 2013 and Lee 2012 comparisons

The first things some fans want to bring up in regards to Cole Hamels 2013 season is how similar Hamels’ run is to that of Cliff Lee in 2012.
