Phillies release tuna can Adam Eaton

Eaton was not a candidate to win the open fifth starter's job, so the Phillies released him early in camp, to give him time to hook on with another team. The release came after efforts to trade the righthander were unsuccessful.

It is likely that Eaton will clear waivers and be signed by another club for $400,000, while the Phils pay the remainder of his $9 million salary for 2009.
