This Day in LSB History

Six years ago today, we learned that Adam Eaton, whom the Rangers had acquired just a few months earlier in exchange for Chris Young and Adrian Gonzalez, would miss three months of the season, with his spot in the rotation being taken by Juan Dominguez.

Adam Eaton brings to mind that famous phrase, "The problem with injury-prone players is that they tend to get injured a lot." The Rangers traded for an injury-prone pitcher who wasn't all that good when he was healthy, and he got hurt, then wasn't all that good when he was healthy.

Then Eaton got a 3 year, $24 million contract from the Phillies anyway, a deal that looked bad from the outset, and that the Phillies regretted about one month into the deal.
