Injury Notes: Shawn Camp, Fernando Salas, Adam Eaton

The Cubs' Shawn camp and the Cardinals' Fernando Salas are both hitting the disabled list while Adam Eaton has suffered a setback during his recovery from injury.


Shawn Camp to DL

The Chicago Cubs placed reliever Shawn Camp on the disabled list Wednesday, according to Jesse Rogers of ESPN Chicago. Camp has been suffering from a sprained big toe on his right foot.

Camp, 37, pitched on Tuesday and allowed a run in 0.2 innings against the Pirates. Overall, he has a 7.56 ERA on the season, just a year removed from leading the MLB in games pitched and posting a 3.59 ERA.

Taking his roster spot will be Rafael Dolis, who was called up from Triple-A Iowa. Dolis pitched in two major league games earlier this season, allowing two unearned runs. In 12 games for Iowa, Dolis has a 5.40 ERA.

Fernando Salas to DL

The Cardinals have received more bad news on the pitching front as the team placed relief pitcher Fernando Salas on the disabled list the same day the team found out that Jaime Garcia would miss the rest of 2013.

Salas is suffering from shoulder irritation, reports Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. He last pitched on Monday when he allowed a hit and a walk while facing three San Diego Padres' hitters.

On the season, Salas has a 3.86 ERA over 15 games. The team called up Tyler Lyons to take his place. Lyons was going to be placed on the active roster soon, anyway, as he was slated to take Garcia's spot in the rotation.

Adam Eaton suffers setback

Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Adam Eaton left a rehab assignment to return to Phoenix after feeling soreness in his elbow, reports Nick Piecoro of AZCentral Sports.

Eaton has been scheduled to meet with the team physician sometime today. He has not yet played for the Diamondbacks after sustaining an elbow strain at the beginning of the season. Eaton had begun a minor league rehab stint earlier in May.

Eaton, 24, was a top-100 prospect nationwide prior to 2013. He acquitted himself well in 22 major league games last season, hitting for a .259/.382/.412 line. Since being drafted in the 19th round of the 2010 draft, he has a career .946 minor league OPS.
