Flyers forward Mike Knuble will undergo surgery tomorrow to repair a small tear in the labrum of his right shoulder.

Mike Adams underwent three surgeries since he last pitched on three consecutive days. That was August 2012, before surgery to remove a rib that corrected thoracic outlet syndrome, before multiple tears in his right shoulder were repaired, and before surgery for a sports hernia. That is why Ryne Sandberg made an interesting observation about his 35-year-old righthanded reliever. "He seems to be more effective when pitching more often," Sandberg said. So the Phillies manager entrusted Adams with another tight eighth-inning situation in Sunday's 1-0 win. Adams retired Jayson Werth on a weak grounder to first base.
