Rangers get reliever Adams from SD for 2 players

The Texas Rangers have added another reliever, acquiring
right-hander Mike Adams from the San Diego Padres in a deal
completed just before the non-waiver trading deadline.
AL West-leading Texas sent minor league pitchers Robbie Erlin
and Joe Wieland to the Padres on Sunday.
Adams is 3-1 with a 1.13 ERA over 48 relief appearances with the
Padres this season, with 49 strikeouts and nine walks.
The Rangers had made no secret their desire to get bullpen help.
On Saturday night, the Rangers got right-hander Koji Uehara and
cash from Baltimore for right-hander Tommy Hunter an infielder
Chris Davis.
