My rule of thumb on pitchers is to get the ones that throw strikes. Eaton hasn't been spectacular but his main problem in 04 was the longball. He's been keeping the ball in the park much better this year.
He CAN be very dominant when he is on. I think there is still a chance that he will realize full potential by year's end. I project him to be a very good #2 type starter. I also don't think he has enough value to sell high.
