Adams unlikely to pitch against Orioles
ARLINGTON -- Reliever Mike Adams didn't do any baseball activities Thursday -- no Rangera players came to the ballpark -- and it's almost certain he will not be available for Friday's Wild Card game.

The Rangers weren't going to set their 25-man roster for the one-game playoff until Friday, but manager Ron Washington didn't leave much of an opening for Adams' inclusion in Thursday's press conference.

"We'll just wait and see when he comes in and gets treatment and see what he can do," Washington said. "As of right now, [he won't be available]. Mike just got back here from seeing doctors, met us in Oakland and then came back with us."

Adams said Wednesday he is feeling improvement with the pain in his neck and shoulder, but is still unsure about the symptoms from thoracic outlet syndrome. Adams has been limited to play catch and hopes to resume throwing off a mound soon.
