Eaton Gone, Carrasco and Happ Dominate

Major League Baseball's free agent pool receives a hot commodity, as the Phillies release veteran Adam Eaton. There is no need to explain this, or analyze it. Eaton was and is terrible, and good riddance.

After another Spring Training loss on Thursday, the Phillies still must be feeling good about the efforts of some key players. Carlos Carrasco and J.A Happ both pitched extremely well, and Gary Majewski showed signs of returning to his old form.

Carrarso pitched two perfect innings, striking out three batters. Happ allowed just one hit over two innings, with no walks and one strike out. Majewski also pitched two perfect innings, fanning two.

Combining for six innings, no runs and one hit, with six strikeouts and no walks, they dominated impressively. Majewski could fit into the Phillies' bullpen nicely, and the race for the fifth starter could come down to the wire.
