Eaton on the DL 

Jon Lieber, Brett Myers, Freddy Garcia, Chase Utley, Shane Victorino, Michael Bourn, Ryan Howard … and now Adam Eaton. Eaton left the Phillies roster with shoulder issues and went on the 15-day D.L. The Phillies overloaded rotation from the beginning of the season now consists of Cole Hamels, Jamie Moyer, Kyle Lohse, Kyle Kendrick, J.D. Durbin and Mike Zagurski. Truly, has there ever been a team as snake-bit by injuries as the 2007 Phillies? It’s honestly astonishing that the Phillies pitching isn’t worse with all of the starts that rookies have had to make for the Phillies. At the moment the Phillies rank fifteenth of sixteen teams in Fielding Independent Pitching (FIP) ERA, just 0.03 better than the Nationals. Ouch.

The Phillies 4-2 loss drops them to third place and four games behind the Mets. The Phillies remain just one game back in the wildcard race. Tonight, Cole Hamels pitches for the Phillies. Hamels is 1-1 against the Nationals in 2007. Let’s hope Cole makes it 2-1.

Tomorrow, a preview of the Phillies and Pirates.

I'm assuming Eaton on the DL was simply a roster move to call up someone else while he figured himself out. I really don't think he's hurt at all. They simply didn't want to start him for his next 1 or 2 games and by putting him on the DL they are able to call up Zagurski for some bullpen depth. I wouldn't be too concerned about this move since Eaton was terrible anyway. This can only make things better (they can't get worse!)
