Right-hander Adam Eaton was released by the Phillies, Senior Vice President & General Manager Ruben Amaro Jr. announced today. Eaton had originally signed a three-year contract with the Phillies on November 30, 2006.

"Based on where we are with our pitching staff and the fact that we feel comfortable with our depth, we wanted to give Adam every opportunity to pitch with another club, rather than wait until later in the spring when it gets more difficult," said Amaro.

Eaton, 31, went 4-8 with a 5.80 ERA and a .310 opponents' batting average in 21 games (19 starts) for the Phillies in 2008. He accepted an option to the minor leagues in July and went 0-5 with a 7.02 ERA in seven starts between triple-A Lehigh Valley, double-A Reading and single-A Lakewood.

In two seasons with the Phillies (2007-08), Eaton posted a record of 14-18 with a 6.10 ERA and a .305 opponents' batting average in 51 games (49 starts).
