Diamondbacks | Adam Eaton won't be benched

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Adam Eaton won't be benched because he didn't run hard to first base in his club's extra-innings game on Tuesday, Aug. 13, according to manager Kirk Gibson.

Eaton bounced into a double play last that ended the 10th inning last night and appeared to let up. His explanation was that he had a mental lapse, plenty believable for the noted hustler. Nick Piecoro also tweets that Gibson said he would have removed Eaton from the game at the time if he'd had enough players available from the pine. This shouldn't affect Eaton's PT in the future, barring something out of character from him occurring again.

Fantasy Tip: Eaton isn't in there today, even though the team is facing a right-hander, so we'll have to take the manager's word for it. Eaton bounced into a double play that ended the 10th inning last night and appeared to let up. His explanation was that he had a mental lapse, plenty believable for the noted hustler. Nick Piecoro also tweets that Gibson said he would have removed Eaton from the game at the time if he'd had enough players available from the pine. Still, hopefully Eaton has received the message and this shouldn't affect Eaton's PT in the future, barring something out of character from him occurring again.
