He's all yours, Baltimore. Lotsa luck. Adam Eaton, the righthander the Phillies couldn't trade so they released him, agreed to a minor league contract with the Orioles and will join the team's major league spring-training camp in Viera, Fla. Eaton, 31, was released by the Phillies on Friday after going 4-8 with a 5.80 ERA in 21 games last season in the second year of a 3-year, $24.5 million contract. The Orioles have three spots in their starting rotation up for grabs behind righthanders Jeremy Guthrie and Koji Uehara.

Adam Eaton found little consolation in his line score yesterday at Great American Ball Park. "We lost," said Eaton, who allowed three runs in 7 2/3 innings in a 4-3 loss to the Cincinnati Reds. "But you want to give your team a chance to win, and I was able to do that. I'm kind of angry with myself the way I came out, but I got into a good groove and made some good pitches. " Ryan Howard crushed a solo home run to center field in the eighth inning to hand the Phillies a 3-2 lead, but Eaton elevated a pitch to Corey Patterson with two outs in the eighth, and Patterson homered to left-center field to tie it. The Reds scored a run in the ninth after Chad Durbin walked the first two batters he faced.

The Phillies should keep their fingers crossed and hope Adam Eaton's middle finger is OK. They gave the righthander, who missed time the last two seasons with an injured tendon in the middle finger of his pitching hand, an extensive physical yesterday in Philadelphia. They want to make sure that he is worth the millions they are about to pay him and that he won't break down with another injury. If he passes, the Phillies could announce today that he has signed a three-year, $24 million contract.

The tank felt full to Adam Eaton. He had thrown 91 pitches through six innings in yesterday's 7-4 loss to the Detroit Tigers at Citizens Bank Park, and he wanted to finish the seventh. He had allowed just one run to help the Phillies to a two-run lead. He had allowed four hits. He had outperformed Tigers righthander Justin Verlander, who had thrown a no-hitter Tuesday against the Milwaukee Brewers. "You like to win those games because you know you only have nine outs left to get," Eaton said.

The race for the fifth spot in the Phillies' starting pitching rotation hasn't exactly been a scintillating competition. While incumbent Adam Eaton, he of the 15.75 spring ERA, spent yesterday getting an MRI and a CT scan on his ailing lower back, another candidate, lefty Travis Blackley, was getting shelled for five runs in 1 2/3 innings by the Cleveland Indians in Winter Haven, Fla. Competition for the job also includes the Durbin boys,...

Phillies officials were focused on the National League division series and keeping their first trip to the postseason in 14 years alive last night. Soon, though, the organization's focus will shift to trying to successfully defend the NL East championship. There is work to be done this off-season. The Phillies need more offense out of the third-base position and improvements in the starting rotation and bullpen. The free-agent pool of starting pitchers is thin, and the trade market is always unpredictable.

It took 81 days, a heap of aggravation and, ultimately, the highest bonus the Phillies ever have handed out to an amateur player. But finally, last night, they reached agreement with their No. 1 draft pick, pitcher Adam Eaton. Eaton's agent, Adam Katz, and Phillies general manager Lee Thomas struck the deal last night, two days before Eaton was scheduled to start school at Washington State. The Phillies announced that Eaton received a $1.1 million signing bonus - $400,000 more than they gave last year's No. 1 pick, outfielder Reggie Taylor.

The Phillies selected hard-throwing righthander Adam Eaton, whom they described as a potential No. 1 or No. 2 starter, in the first round of yesterday's major-league amateur baseball draft. Eaton, a 6-foot-2, 185-pounder from Snohomish High School in Washington State, has terrific statistics and a fastball that would make most major-leaguers envious. Still, the Phillies haven't had much success when drafting high school pitchers in the first round. Since the draft started in 1965, only two of the 11 high school pitchers the Phils have chosen in the first round have had more than a cameo appearance in the majors - Larry Christenson and Pete Smith.

Hours before the smallest crowd to attend a game at Citizens Bank Park in more than six years watched the Phillies bumble toward another loss - this one by 6-2 to Milwaukee on Thursday - Ryan Howard wanted to correct misguided notions. There is no reason to panic, he said. It is too early. The proof, he said, was beyond the numbers. "We've had a couple of mistakes that have cost us games," Howard said before batting practice. "But in all actuality, we've actually played very well this year.

RYAN HOWARD wasn't at his locker following Wednesday night's loss, a game that turned in part on the first baseman's eighth-inning error. The go-ahead and ultimate game-winning run scored on the play. But Howard stood at his locker yesterday afternoon, ready to face the proverbial music. Howard has always been both accountable and upbeat, to a fault. Yesterday, however, hours before his team took the field in an attempt to prevent being swept on its own field, Howard was optimistic despite his team's struggles, and equal parts defiant, too. "In all actuality, we've actually played very well this year," Howard said of a Phillies team that hadn't won since Saturday and sat in last place in the National League East.

A LITTLE BIT of run support was all the Doc had ordered. Roy Halladay returned to a big-league mound a bit earlier than expected as he joined the Phillies following a historic 18-inning loss Saturday night in which yesterday's scheduled starter was used in relief. Halladay had been scheduled to make a rehab start yesterday at Double A Reading. The two-time Cy Young Award winner outpitched Arizona ace lefthander Patrick Corbin in the Phillies' 9-5 victory yesterday afternoon. Halladay walked off the field after a scoreless sixth inning to his second standing ovation of the afternoon, his pitch count at 94. The 36-year-old's day was done after holding the Diamondbacks to two runs on four hits and two walks, with two strikeouts.

He was not overpowering and needed some great defense, including a home run-saving catch, but overall, Roy Halladay made a successful return to a major-league mound on Sunday. Making his first Phillies appearance since May 5, Halladay allowed two runs in six innings during a 9-5 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks at Citizens Bank Park. The two-time Cy Young Award winner threw 94 pitches, 55 for strikes, with a fastball in the high 80s for much of the day. Halladay, who underwent shoulder surgery on May 15, surrendered four hits while striking out two and walking two. "I feel like I am getting stronger and I look forward to continuing to build," said Halladay, 36. Halladay originally was supposed to make his third minor-league rehabilitation start Sunday at Reading.

The longest game ever played by the Phillies was weird well before their rightfielder started warming up in the bullpen. Casper Wells — 0 for 7 with four strikeouts — jogged to the mound Sunday at 1:34 a.m. "Let's go Casper!" the scattered fans chanted as Wells, playing for his fifth team in 2013, threw 91 m.p.h. "The game," John McDonald said, "is unforgiving. " Wells was one strike from a scoreless 18th inning. Five batters later, interim manager Ryne Sandberg raised his right arm and summoned his leftfielder, McDonald, to replace his rightfielder on the mound.

Atlanta Braves third baseman Chipper Jones choked up a bit and delivered the news that's been looming for years: It's time to call it a career. This time, he means it. With his 40th birthday approaching and a long string of injuries slowing him down, Jones announced Thursday that he will retire at season's end. "I have fulfilled everything," Jones, flanked by his family and teammates, said during a news conference at the Braves' training camp...

PAT GILLICK is not working for the Cubs and he's not with the Dodgers, either. There was a report that he went to the Dominican Republic last month to meet with Aramis Ramirez and to Cuba to scout Yeonnis Cespedes - which means, if you're any kind of student of the man, that he is still an important part of the Phillies' brain trust. So fret not over Dontrelle Willis, whose late-day tweet - "I'm fired up be with the fighting phillies and looking forward to this season" - confirmed his status as the newest Phillies free-agent signee, pending a physical scheduled for today.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - At times they looked bemused, at times they looked defiant. Atop a platform, in front of a horde of media, the four starters surveyed the hyperbole that their unification had sprung. As the video rolled and the cameras flashed, they reminded the viewing public that they had yet to throw a pitch, that they had yet to play a game, that they had yet to reach the legendary status that everyone seems so eager to bestow. But most striking of all were the occasions when they reminded the viewing public about starter No. 5. First came Cole Hamels, who was informed by a reporter that he was the only pitcher in the news conference who owned a World Series ring.

It is here. Finally. The most eagerly anticipated ride in the history of Philadelphia sports starts now, as the 2011 Phillies start reporting to work (officially) in Clearwater, Fla. Never has a Philly team begun its season with as much positive energy and pure enthusiasm as this one. If there's a trace of our historic sense of impending doom, good luck finding it. The city Murphy surely had in mind when formulating his infamous Law is all in with this club to an unprecedented degree.

The Phillies kicked off the most successful epoch in their largely undistinguished franchise history by winning the National League East title in 2007. Return with us now to those glorious days of yesteryear when the projected starters going into spring training were ... Brett Myers, Freddy Garcia, Jon Lieber, Cole Hamels, Jamie Moyer and Adam Eaton. This didn't exactly move the baseball poets to compose paeans celebrating what was in store. Rightly, as it turned out. Myers became the closer at midseason.
