The Phillies placed reliever Mike Adams on the 15-day disabled list with biceps tendinitis on Saturday.

To take Adams' place in the bullpen, the Phillies selected the contract of IronPigs pitcher J.C. Ramirez.

To make room for Ramirez on the 40-man roster, the Phillies designated infielder Michael Martinez for assignment.

Ramirez joins Mike Stutes, Justin DeFratus, Jake Diekman, and Joe Savery in a Phillies bullpen full of IronPig callups.
