Padres owner says Adams won't be traded

Mike AdamsBy C. Trent Rosecrans

One of the hottest names on the trade market is Padres reliever Mike Adams, but team owner Jeff Moorad has told Adams he won't be traded, Yahoo!'s Jeff Passan writes.

Citing a team source, Passan reports Moorad told the right-handed reliever, "you're not going anywhere."

Adams, 33, is 3-1 with a 1.23 ERA, striking out 43 batters and walking nine in 44 innings. He's allowed just 23 hits, for a WHIP of .727. Most importantly, he's under team control for 2012, his last season of arbitration. That's what makes him more valuable in many team's eyes than Padres closer Heath Bell -- any team that acquires him can count on his services for not just this season, but next season as well. He will likely get a nice raise from the $2.533 million he earns this season.

Bell has been linked to just about every team still in the hunt. Passan says 12 teams have inquired on Adams. That would likely include the Red Sox, Rangers, Phillies, Yankees and Brewers.

Moorad knows the game, he's a former agent, so he could just be trying to play a game to improve his leverage or he could really want to keep Adams and use him as a closer after Bell departs.
