The Texas Rangers have announced that right-handed reliever Mike Adams will undergo surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome next week, reports Anthony Andro of FOXsportssouthwest.com. Mike Adams will have surgery for TOS Oct. 18. — Anthony Andro (@aandro) October 12, 2012 Adams was diagnosed with thoracic outlet syndrome prior to the Rangers one-game Wild Card playoff game against the Baltimore Orioles. The injury, which is basically a sore neck, kept the right-hander off the Rangers’ roster. It’s not seen as something extremely serious, but it certainly hampered Adams enough during the end of the season to warrant surgery. Now that the Rangers’ season is over, Adams will undergo the procedure. The 34-year-old maintained an ERA and WHIP of 3.27 and 1.395 over 61 appearances spanning 52 1/3 innings for Texas this season.
