Announced earlier today by the Arizona Diamondbacks and then reported by Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic, outfielder Adam Eaton’s MRI revealed no structural damage in his elbow which is good news to hear especially since earlier this week he suffered a setback rehabbing from the sprained elbow ligament.

Eaton is only 24 years old so this is great news to hear because you never want to see an injury like this hinder this young man’s career. But according to Piecoro, he will strengthen for 2-3 weeks and then will start a throwing program. Last season, Eaton appeared in 22 games as he made his major league debut and in those games he did well.

In 85 at bats, he had a .259 batting average, two home runs, five RBI, and 14 walks and in the minors he did some damage too. He has a .448 career on base percentage with speed that can help the Diamondbacks on the base pads. Currently, the Diamondbacks are in a three way tie for first place in the NL West, getting back Eaton later this summer could be the difference between a NL West crown and a wild card playoff spot.
