Diamondbacks | Adam Eaton resting

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Adam Eaton (elbow) will rest for three weeks and be re-evaluated after consulting Dr. James Andrews for a second opinion of his MRI exam. "Then if all goes well, he's off and running," general manager Kevin Towers said. "But if not, surgery can be an option." Eaton is dealing with a small tear in the ulnar collateral ligament in his elbow, and the injury is similar to the one SS Didi Gregorius dealt with early this season. A decision on whether Eaton will need surgery will be made by mid-July to make sure he'd be available for next season.

Fantasy Tip: Eaton will probably be out for another month and a half, but if he doesn't need surgery, he could be a nice source of stolen bases in the second half. A.J. Pollock retains value in deep mixed leagues with Eaton still out.
