The Arizona Diamondbacks have high expectations of the talents that Adam Eaton possesses that he has been selected along with four other players to play in the prestigious Arizona Fall League. He’ll be heading out this weekend to play for the Salt River Rafters in Scottsdale.

Eaton, a 2007 graduate of Springfield Kenton Ridge High School, started the 2011 season with the Single-A Visalia Rawhide and in June was promoted to the Mobile BayBears. He hit .302, the third-best average on the team, had an on-base percentage of .409 in 56 games. He hit four home runs, stole 10 bases and knocked home 28 runs.

Adam’s second minor league season ended with a championship as the Double-A BayBears last Sunday clinched the Southern League title with a 6-4 win over the Tennessee Smokies.

Once-promising Thompson making comeback with Reds

Daryl Thompson, one of the Cincinnati Reds promising young right-hander’s a few years ago until injuries slowed his career, is on the team’s 40-man roster and in camp.

The 25-year-old is a former Reds minor league pitcher of the year who made it to the major leagues in 2008. He faced and beat the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium in his big league debut, throwing five shutout innings.

There is a slim chance that Thompson could make the opening day pitching staff.

He spent three stints on the disabled list in 2009, with elbow problems and a bad shoulder. He had shoulder surgery on August 25.

2010 was no better for Thompson as he spent two long stints on the diasbled list from May 17 to June 30 and July 26 through the end of the season.

By pitching well in the Arizona Fall League, 2-2 with a 4.50 ERA, the Reds decided to give a chance on the 40-man roster.

Earlier this week, the Cleveland Indians, the major league affiliate of the Clippers, announced that Sarbaugh will return to Columbus to lead the team in defending its championships.

Hitting coach Lee May Jr. also will return from the 2010 staff. Charles Nagy, last season’s pitching coach left for the Arizona Diamondbacks in the same capacity, so his spot has been replace by Ruben Niebla, whom Sarbaugh worked with in Akron in 2009.
