Orioles Sign Adam Eaton
Remember when we pondered whether anyone else would take a chance on former Phillies pitcher Adam Eaton? Well, right on cue, someone did, and the team happens to be from the area.
That's right, on Sunday the Orioles came to agreement with Eaton on a minor league deal, a move which will cost Baltimore only $400,000 if he makes the major league roster because of his prior deal with the Phillies. MASN's Roch Kubatko broke the deal, noting that the O's are reportedly looking at Eaton as rotation insurance.
This is C.J.'s territory, so he's sure to have more on this in the days to come, but it had to be noted. After all, how often can a team sign an $8.5 million player for $400,000?
What do people think about the deal? Is Eaton a good signing or another Baltimore rotation disaster?
