Adam Eaton threw an 87 MPH pitch in a real game

Adam Eaton has some heat.

Eaton's return to the Chicago White Sox was brie, signing in the offseason before being released in July. Eaton signed a couple of days later with the Los Angeles Angels.

And on Tuesday night, Eaton got the opportunity to pitch and he registered some legit speeds.

You heard that right, Eaton threw an 87 mph pitch in a real-life MLB game. Eaton's night ended with a full inning pitched, giving up two hits while throwing 21 total pitches.

But zero earned runs, so look out Anthony Rizzo, there could be a challenger to the greatest reliever title.

Eaton's pitch even impressed Shohei Ohtani, who has been remarkable this year from both the batter's box and the pitcher's mound.

I doubt the bullpen is in Eaton's future, but he might've earned a few more opportunities to pitch.
