SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Adam Eaton will be out for up to two months with a left elbow sprain.

Diamondbacks general manager Kevin Towers said on Friday that Eaton had an MRI that revealed a small tear in the fibers around the ulnar collateral ligament. Eaton had been bothered by a sore elbow for a couple of weeks and the Diamondbacks had recently given him a couple days off.

Towers said Eaton, expected to be Arizona's starting center fielder and leadoff hitter, will be shut down for four weeks and the best-case scenario for his return would be in six weeks, but could be as long as two months.

Eaton played 22 games for the Diamondbacks last season before he was hit by a pitch and broke his right hand.
