Phillies head athletic trainer Scott Sheridan provided updates on various injured Phillies. The news is (mostly) negative.

Mike Adams did not respond to the conservative treatment for numerous tears in his shoulder. He will likely undergo surgery that could sideline him for the beginning of 2014. Adams is owed $7 million next season.

Lefthander Jeremy Horst's season is likely over. Soreness in his elbow recurred during a rehab stint at triple-A Lehigh Valley. He visited noted orthopedist James Andrews for a second opinion and was injected with a platelet-rich plasma shot. He will not throw for at least six weeks.

Ryan Howard has begun his rehab from knee surgery. His stitches will be removed Tuesday. Phillies head athletic trainer Scott Sheridan said Howard's "range of motion is back in full."

Roy Halladay (shoulder) threw from flat ground again Friday. He has yet to throw off a mound, but that could come soon. His return is still weeks away.

Mike Stutes is still experiencing biceps soreness. He was injected with cortisone and was shut down for another two weeks, at least.
