Analysis: General manager Mike Rizzo said Eaton has a "full thickness" ACL tear, plus a meniscus tear and a high ankle sprain. "His return to this season is unlikely, but we don't know until the doctors get in there and we'll see what the surgery leads us to believe," said Rizzo, who added the surgery date is not set. In Friday's 7-5 loss to the visiting New York Mets, the 28-year-old Eaton stepped awkwardly on the bag when he beat out a throw to first in the ninth.
