Eaton, a 6-5 195-pound left-handed pitcher from Embry-Riddle, joins the Grizzlies in 2013. Eaton, 24, went 7-6 with a 2.58 ERA during the Eagle 43-win season in 2012. He pitched in 20 games, while starting a team-best 15 times. A native of Warner Robins, GA, Eaton fired a team-best 118 and two thirds innings with only 29 walks and 91 strikeouts, which was also tops at Embry-Riddle.
“Phil told us about Dan and we feel like he fills a void for us right now, which is left-handed pitching,” Warren said. “He put up good numbers in college and we hope he can come here and have similar success as Phil.”
