Adam Eaton's shoulder, which gave him problems throughout last season, felt fine after throwing about 30 pitches in the Phillies' Grapefruit League game against the Yankees today. His back, however, was a little sore, as it has been for much of spring training.
 
But Eaton said he wasn't concerned about the back becoming a problem.
 
"It doesn't feel so good at times, but it feels OK when I wake up," the right hander said. "We're working on it, and it's getting better."
 
Seems like its just soreness that's bothering him, nothing structurally that could affect the way he throws. As for how he threw against the Yankees, Eaton said he was pleased. He allowed three runs in the first inning, including a home run to Shelley Duncan. But at this point in time in the year, results are secondary to health and mechanics. And Eaton said he is happy with both.
 
"I felt like I threw a lot of good fastballs," Eaton said. "I kept the ball down better than I had in the past."
 
Eaton's final line: two inning pitched, five hits, three runs, three strikeouts, 30 pitches.
 
Greg Golson hit a solo home run to left field to cut the Yankees lead to 7-3.
