Arizona Diamondbacks general manager Kevin Towers indicated the team may look to add a corner outfield that has power this offseason. The team likely will not be able to sign a high-profile free agent, so the team probably would have to trade for an outfielder. Towers indicated to the team could trade OF A.J. Pollock, OF Adam Eaton or OF Gerardo Parra in order to add a corner outfielder because those players receive interest from other teams.

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.

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.

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Jason Kubel (back) was scratched from the lineup Sunday, July 28, against the San Diego Padres due to a stiff back. OF A.J. Pollock made the start in center field, and OF Adam Eaton slid over to left field as a result.
Fantasy Tip: Kubel is considered day to day, but carries a little risk heading into the upcoming scoring period. Since the team has a scheduled day off Monday, he'll get another day to rest. Fantasy owners should be all right keeping him active, as it doesn't sound too serious.

The Arizona Diamondbacks activated OF Adam Eaton (elbow) from the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, July 9, and he's starting in center field and batting leadoff. In a corresponding move, P Charles Brewer was optioned to Triple-A Reno.
Fantasy Tip: A.J. Pollock will lose considerable playing time with this move. Eaton is still widely available in the majority of mixed leagues. Scoop him up immediately, especially if you could use a stolen base contributor.

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Adam Eaton (elbow) was the designated hitter in extended spring training games last weekend. Eaton has resumed playing catch and hasn't felt anymore pain in his elbow. "Everything feels good," Eaton said. "Feels back to where I was. It only hurt that one throw and I felt great before that." He could go on a rehab assignment and play the outfield in another two weeks.
Fantasy Tip: A.J. Pollock figures to lose out on playing time whenever Eaton is ready to return. Eaton could be stashed in deep mixed leagues if you're looking for some stolen base help in the second half of the season.

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.

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Adam Eaton (elbow) had an MRI last week, and it was reviewed by renowned Dr. James Andrews Tuesday, May 28, for a second opinion. Eaton has been on the 15-day disabled list all season with a strained left elbow.

Arizona Diamondbacks general manager Kevin Towers said OF Adam Eaton (elbow) will probably be receiving a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews over the next few days.
Fantasy Tip: Eaton's MRI didn't show structural damage, so this could be one of those cases when Andrews doesn't condemn a player's season. Still, it's a reason to remain cautious when expecting Eaton to make a dent for your SB potential this season.
