MLB Diamondbacks vs San Diego Padres

The Diamondbacks look like a completley different team late in the season as they push for a wild card spot in the playoffs with a late offensive push. The Dbacks get a huge contribution from new comer Adam Eatonwho didnt wait long to make an impact to his new team batting in the lead off position has added some spark to this order in production and speed.

Adam Eaton

Eaton’s speed is something to see and has gotten much attention lately by scouts and the social media world. The scouts now adapt a prevent defense for Eaton and basically put the infielders in bunt defense because if he hits a ball to an infielder who has to move for the ball they dont have time to throw him out. Eaton was clocked at 3.83 seconds from contact to first base by scouts yesterday in an at bat he wasnt in what they call “jail Break” mode. Nick Piecoro of azcentral.com says “EatonCan Fly”.
