D-Backs’ Adam Eaton will miss 6-8 weeks with left elbow sprain

Guess he should have stayed retir…oh. #yankeefan

Diamondbacks center fielder Adam Eaton will miss the next 6-8 weeks with a UCL sprain in his left (throwing) elbow, the team announced. He apparently hurt himself sliding into third base on Monday.

Eaton, 24, was slated to take over as Arizona’s leadoff man following an offseason lineup rebuild. He went 23 for 59 (.390) with two homers and three steals in spring training after an impressive 22-game cameo last September (111 OPS+). Baseball America ranked Eaton as the 73rd-best prospect in the game a few weeks ago.

I know the DBacks were looking for more players like Kirk Gibson but I didn't think this was what they had in mind.

Oh come on, I just drafted him.

I thought the new, grittier DBacks weren't going to get injured like that pansy Upton always is?

This is why you want fat players. You can't strain fat.

ADAM EATON! He's still around? Oh, wait. Not that one.

I can't believe there are two Adam Eatons!

Well now at least they have their built in excuses with Ross and Eaton hurt to start the season and Kubel struggling on a bum knee and Didi having a hurt elbow and no chance to help the big club at least early on.

Sub .:500 first half beckons

This.

And I have still never seen Adam Eaton play, meaning my one reason for watching games this year is on the DL.

Ryan Z. Braun says what-up.
   12. shoewizard Posted: March 23, 2013 at 02:52 AM (#4394849)
As does Chris Young

As does Chris Young
And Jose Reyes also waves.

Think Arizona will coax Dave Roberts out of retirement?
   15. Coot Veal and Cot Deal taste like Old Bay Posted: March 23, 2013 at 09:42 AM (#4394878)
Dixie Walker, Dutch Leonard, Dixie Howell, Jim Walkup, the Harry Taylor Quartet, Heinie Mueller, Cy Morgan, and Doc Marshall all wave from the grave...

the Jose Santiago trio, Bob Sadowski, Mike Marshall, Steve Sparks and Dave Stapleton look on, while Scott Servais and Scott Service just chuckle.

Who could forget the great Greg Harrises? Two pitchers, three throwing arms.
   17. Swoboda is freedom Posted: March 23, 2013 at 09:51 AM (#4394882)
Don't forget Bobby Jones. They even pitched for the same team (Mets)
   18. Barnaby Jones Posted: March 23, 2013 at 09:55 AM (#4394883)
Surely one of the Bobbies Jones can be found to comment?

EDIT: Soda yadda yadda

The Dixie Howells were a pitcher-catcher combo two times in 1949: May 1 and May 8... possibly on April 24 as well.
   20. Coot Veal and Cot Deal taste like Old Bay Posted: March 23, 2013 at 10:07 AM (#4394887)
won't you come home Bill Bailey, won't you come home?

Jose Bautista has played for the Orioles with two different sets of mitochondrial DNA
   22. AROM Posted: March 23, 2013 at 10:24 AM (#4394898)
21 posts and no mention of Alex Gonzalez? Specifically, the one who played in that Marlins -Cubs series a decade ago.

George, Jack and Joe Burns also give a shout out from the great beyond.

Some people have the same names.

That's funny

Two Mike Stantons
1989-2011
   30. puck Posted: March 23, 2013 at 12:11 PM (#4394950)
There are the Bob Gibson's, too. Bill James said of the Milwaukee Gibson something like, "so-and-so hopes Gibson ends up half as good as the original Bob Gibson. He already he is, he can throw 48 MPH."

There.... is.... another....

And looking at the career of pitcher Mike Stanton--well, Yankee/Brave/assorted pitcher Mike Stanton--I discovered he was traded for career-minor-leaguer Mike Jacobs in 1995. And then missed by a year being a teammate of made-it-to-the-Majors Mike Jacobs in 2005.

Also, I think the two Bernie Williams want in on this conversation.
   33. Jick Posted: March 23, 2013 at 03:27 PM (#4395007)
And Javier Lopez and Frank Thomas. And Cliff Lee.
   34. Dag Nabbit is a cornucopia of errors Posted: March 23, 2013 at 03:30 PM (#4395009)
There are the Bob Gibson's, too. Bill James said

There are two Bill Jameses - not including the sabermetrician.
   35. Pasta-diving Jeter (jmac66) Posted: March 23, 2013 at 03:56 PM (#4395011)
There are 4 Bob Millers. All were pitchers. Two of them played for the 62 Mets. For some reason, Casey called Bob L.Miller "Nelson".
   36. Walt Davis Posted: March 23, 2013 at 04:56 PM (#4395035)
Yet there is only one Bob Tufts ...

and the scary realization there are three Repozes
   37. jayjay Posted: March 23, 2013 at 06:20 PM (#4395062)
Ken Griffey
   38. Voros McCracken of Pinkus Posted: March 23, 2013 at 06:53 PM (#4395079)
There are two Roberto Hernandezes and no Fausto Carmonas.
   39. Howie Menckel Posted: March 23, 2013 at 08:23 PM (#4395105)
I still vote for the first of the 4 Bob Johnsons for the Hall of Merit!

two others both played in 1969-70 (one of them even pitched in 2 G for the '69 Miracle Mets)


   40. RoyalsRetro (AG#1F) Posted: March 23, 2013 at 09:43 PM (#4395138)
There are the two Doug Mientkkiewiczes, except one pronounces and spells his name differently.
   41. PreservedFish Posted: March 23, 2013 at 10:19 PM (#4395145)
Will AJ Pollock start in center, and if so, do we get to use all the Mike Trout jokes again?
