Diamondbacks outfielder Adam Eaton felt more discomfort in his elbow and left his rehab assignment to return to Phoenix, where he’ll visit with team physician Dr. Michael Lee. The setback raises concerns that Eaton could need surgery; ulnar collateral injuries often require the ligament-replacement procedure known as Tommy John surgery. Should he need that, he would be out for the season, but the recovery time is generally faster for position players than pitchers, meaning he could be fully healed in time for the start of spring training. Eaton should know more shortly following his visit with Lee.
