Phillies send Eaton to minors

The Phillies announced that veteran pitcher Adam Eaton accepted an optional assignment to the team's minor league system Monday.

No specific classification has been determined, however, and the Phillies will continue to work out his schedule.

The struggling right-hander was just 4-8 with a 5.80 earned run average in 21 games (19 starts) for the Phillies this season. His last two appearances came in relief.

A corresponding roster move to fill Eaton's spot on the 25-man roster will be made prior to Tuesday's game against the Nationals in Washington, D.C.
