By Len Holmquist 9:43pm, May 22, 2009n Adam Eaton, a multi-million dollar bust as a member of the Phillies pitching staff, was handed his walking papers by the Baltimore Orioles on Friday.
Eaton's release came less than 24-hours after he lasted less than five-innings while giving up seven runs in a loss at the New York Yankees Thursday night.
Eaton was 2-5 with an ERA approaching 9.00 after being picked up by the Orioles after the Phillies cut him early in spring training. The Phillies are still paying him millions of dollars from a contract that he signed back before the 2007 season.
