Mike Adams


The Milwaukee Brewers signed Adams Friday to a one-year deal worth $335,000 if he makes the majors and $184,100 if he plays in the minors. The 27-year-old right-hander appeared in 13 games for the Brewers last season, going 0-1 with a 2.70 ERA and one save.


In order to make room on the active roster for Ben Sheets, Adams was optioned to the Brewers' Triple-A club in Nashville. In 13 relief appearances this year, Adams registered a 2.70 ERA with one save and two holds.


After struggling as the Brewers' closer over the first few weeks of the 2005 campaign, Adams has been shifted to a setup role in Milwaukee's bullpen, while Derrick Turnbow will handle most save situations going forward. In eight appearances, Adams is 0-1 with a 3.52 ERA and one save.

The Brewers never were sold on Adams taking over as the primary closer, and manager Ned Yost indicated that Turnbow could figure into the mix coming out of spring training. Adams made his major league debut last season, appearing in 46 games, going 2-3 with a 3.40 ERA.
