Phillies Release Eaton; Other Updates

Finally! The Phillies release Adam Eaton. The Phillies will owe Eaton $9 million. Eaton was scheduled to pitch tomorrow.

"Based on where we are with our pitching staff and the fact that we feel
comfortable with our depth, we wanted to give Adam every opportunity to pitch
with another club, rather than wait until later in the spring when it gets more
difficult," Ruben Amaro Jr. said.
The Phillies lost their third consecutive spring training game today, 10-3. Victorino, who went 2-3 with two doubles, will join Team USA because Grady Sizemore is suffering soreness in his left groin.

In other news, Jayson Werth has yet to play in a game. Werth claims he isn't hurt.


“He’s just not ready to go. He’s just not ready to go yet. Swinging, running,
everything. That happens a lot. It’s no big deal. He’s not a whole lot out of
shape, just the way he’s been going through it.” Charlie Manuel said.
