Hendrickson scratched, Eaton ready to be elite

Mark Hendrickson was scratched from his start today, but expected to be back to activity in a couple days. He's the fourth pitcher this spring (after Hennessey, Parrish and Hill) to come up lame, even if short-term.

USA Today believes this "validates" the signing of Adam Eaton, who remarked, "I need to prove myself as an elite pitcher in the league."

Ahahaha, OK, dude. You know what? Go get 'em. If you're going to start being elite, I'd be happy if you did it as an Oriole.
