Adam Eaton left Friday's game in the fifth with a left leg injury, suffered on a single to lead off the game. Manager Robin Ventura said he believes Eaton will return Saturday.
Eaton apparently injured his leg in the first inning on his game-opening single but it didn't force him out until later so things obviously tightened up on him to the point where staying in could have made it worse. There was no word as to the nature of the injury was or just how severe, but if Ventura says that he'll play Saturday, how bad could it have been? There is the possibility that Eaton wakes up Saturday morning and it's worse, so check the lineups before you settle on yours. Consider him day-to-day for now.
