Adam Eaton: Sprained UCL; Out 6-8 Weeks

Rotowire.com
Update: Eaton will miss six-to-eight weeks with a sprained UCL in his left elbow.

Recommendation: For a player rapidly rising up draft boards this spring, it's unfortunate timing as the D-Backs were ready to give him the starting job in center field and the opportunity to begin the year in the leadoff spot on Opening Day. In his absence, Gerardo Parra and A.J. Pollock figure to see expanded roles, as the D-Backs could be facing an absence from Cody Ross as well. The timetable offered by the D-Backs will likely knock him out of action for all of April.
