Texas SP Adam Eaton Struck by Comebacker

Texas Rangers No. 2 starter Adam Eaton underwent a doctor's examination and was awaiting precautionary X-rays after leaving Sunday's game in Mesa, Ariz., in the bottom of the second inning. Eaton was struck by a punishing liner off the bat of the Cubs reserve outfielder Marquis Grissom, and left under his own power but appeared to be in great pain. The ball appeared to strike Eaton on or near the bicep of his throwing arm. There was no immediate word on the seriousness of the injury.
