Adam Eaton has been optioned to the Minor Leagues.
Eaton was 4-8 with a 5.80 ERA this season for the Phillies. Yesterday he gave up three earned runs in two innings against the Braves.
The move would likely bring pitcher JA Happ back to the Phils. He was pulled early from his start yesterday. And I say thank you, and good riddance to Adam, who did nothing to show he was a Major League pitcher again this season. We held out hope for him too long, and now he’ll have to figure out if he’s good enough to be a Major League arm again.
