Eaton hits for first time in rehab

SAN DIEGO -- D-backs outfielder Adam Eaton hit in extended spring training Saturday for the first time during his rehab.

He is expected to begin throwing Sunday after serving only as designated hitter in his first appearance.

"He's going to probably do it again Monday or Tuesday against [injured closer closer] J.J. [Putz]," D-backs manager Kirk Gibson said.

Eaton has been on the disabled list since June 1 with a strained left elbow. He initially felt some discomfort in March and was shut down before being activated and began feeling more pain.
