Eaton signs with Orioles

It didn't take long for Adam Eaton to find a new home.

The veteran righthander, released by the Phillies Friday, has signed a minor league contract with the Baltimore Orioles. If he makes the team's Opening Day roster, Baltimore owe him only the minimum of $400,000, leaving the Phillies responsibile for the rest.


On the field, the Phillies beat the Braves 7-3, improving their Grapefruit League record to 2-3. Marcus Giles went 2-for-3 with an RBI, two runs, and two stolen bases against his former team.
