The Philadelphia Phillies placed reliever Mike Adams on the disabled list with biceps tendinitis, according to the team's official Twitter page.

This is Adams' second stint on the DL this season. He suffered a back injury in May that caused him to miss a couple of weeks. Adams returned without going on a minor league rehab assignment and began suffering from tenderness in his right biceps.

Adams, 34, has a 3.96 ERA in 28 games for the Phillies this season. Philadelphia signed him this offseason to a two-year, $12 million contract with a team option worth $6 million for 2015.

The Phillies purchased the contract of pitcher J.C. Ramirez from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to take Adams' roster spot. Infielder Michael Martinez was designated for assignment to create room on the 40-man roster for Ramirez.

Ramirez has a 5.30 ERA over 27 relief appearances split between Double-A and Triple-A this season.
