Arizona Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said OF Adam Eaton (elbow) is making progress in his rehab and expects Eaton to start playing in the outfield for Triple-A Reno next week as part of his rehab assignment. "He's getting really close," Gibson said. "We'll have him start throwing longer, and then he'll start throwing relays and stuff like that and then we'll get him in the game." Eaton has been used as a designated hitter since starting his rehab assignment and is only hitting .120.
