Adam Eaton out 6-to-8 weeks with elbow strain

Diamondbacks outfielder Adam Eaton will miss six to eight weeks due to a left elbow strain, per the team's Twitter account.

It's unclear when Eaton was injured, although he did leave Monday night's game early. Previous reports indicated Eaton's early exit was not injury-related, but a statement from GM Kevin Towers makes it seem otherwise today.

Regardless of when the injury occurred, Eaton, who was expected to play centerfield and leadoff in 2013, should be back in action mid-to-late May.
