Diamondbacks' Austin Adams out for season with fractured ankle

SAN FRANCISCO -- Arizona Diamondbacks reliever Austin Adams will miss the rest of the season after suffering a fractured right ankle in Tuesday's loss to San Francisco.

He was placed on the 60-day injured list Wednesday.

Adams entered to start the eighth inning, but threw just two pitches when he took a comebacker by Joc Pederson off the ankle. Manager Torey Lovullo said he knew the injury was serious when he went out to the mound and the pitcher couldn't put any weight on the foot.

"We're definitely going to miss Austin," Lovullo said. "But as I've said before, when somebody goes down via injuries, it's time for somebody to step up; there's going to be an opportunity for somebody to get some big outs in that bullpen and somebody will emerge."

Adams was 0-1 with a 5.71 ERA, 22 strikeouts and 8 walks over 27 appearances spanning 17⅓ innings.
