The Phillies finally got sick of watching Adam Eaton pitch batting practice so they have sent him to the minors. Eaton has pitched in 21 games (19 starts) this season for the Phillies and he is 4-8 with a 5.80 ERA and a 1.64 WHIP. Eaton has been really awful since coming to the Phillies before last season as a free agent. Eaton has now pitched in 51 games (49 starts) in his time with the Phillies and he is 14-18 with a 6.10 ERA and a 1.63 WHIP. The Phillies have recalled lefty J.A. Happ who will likely be working out of the bullpen for them. Happ has started 2 games for the Phillies this season and he is 0-0 with a 3.27 ERA and a 1.45 WHIP. Happ has also pitched in 20 games (19 starts) in AAA ball this season and he is 7-6 with a 3.30 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP. The Phillies just made the pitching staff better by subtracting Adam Eaton from it.
