Texas Rangers reliever Mike Adams, who will be a free agent, will undergo surgery for Thoracic Outlet Syndrome Thursday in Dallas.
Adams met with Dr. Greg Pearl yesterday and Pearl will perform the surgery.
Adams missed the final five games of the season because of what was thought to be a mild neck strain. He was diagnosed with TOS Sept. 30.
Adams went 5-3 with a 3.27 ERA for the Rangers and ranked fifth in the AL with 27 holds. He allowed a career high 56 hits and matched his career high in runs allowed with 21, including three homers in his final appearance of the season.
Adams said he was experiencing symptoms consistent with TOS for much of the season. TOS is caused by a rib putting pressure on a nerve causing numbness and tingling in the hand and arm.
The Rangers have a long history of players having TOS, including Harrison, Hank Blalock and Jarrod Saltalamacchia.
Adams is expected to be fully recovered by spring training.

But if you looked at the individual players, those numbers didn't seem to add up all the time. The Rangers were also poor at situational hitting; failing to advance runners...
Now that the season for the Texas Rangers has been over for almost a week and a lot longer in some peoples minds its time to hand out the report cards for the players.
My grading system is simple. As go to those who had excellent seasons, Bs to those who were above average, Cs to those who were average, Ds to those below average and Fs to those either need to give back the money...
After losing a five-game lead with nine games to play, the Rangers enter what figures to be a very active offseason. The team that went to two consecutive World Series and held first place in the AL West for virtually all but the last day of the 2012 season is likely to change significantly. "I think it's a natural time to kind of reassess where we are, get back to what...
