Eaton followed up a 3-for-5 game with an even better performance, falling a home run shy of the cycle. Perhaps most remarkably, none of Eaton's four hits managed to drive in a run. The outfielder did score two runs himself, giving him 71 runs scored to go with a .303/.367/.403 line on the year. Sep 17 - 1:00 AM

Adam Eaton was ejected from Tuesday's game against the Twins for arguing balls and strikes.

Adam Eaton went 2-for-5 with two doubles and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Tigers.

Eaton continues to assault American League pitching, as Sunday's two-hit day extended his hitting streak to seven games. In that span, Eaton is 12-for-28 (.428) with nine runs scored. The 25-year-old is hitting .313, sixth-best in the American League, with a .796 OPS on the year.

Adam Eaton did his part in Friday's loss to the Tigers, going 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored.

Eaton also drew a walk, reaching base in four of his five plate appearances. He has done an outstanding job as a table-setter atop the White Sox lineup this season, slashing .310/.377/.413 with one homer, 33 RBI and 13 stolen bases in his 387 at-bats.
Aug 29 - 11:46 PM

Adam Eaton doubled, tripled and scored twice from the leadoff spot Wednesday against the Indians.

Aug 27 - 11:55 PM

White Sox activated OF Adam Eaton from the 15-day disabled list.

Eaton was cleared to return after going 3-for-10 with a double, an RBI, and a stolen base this weekend in two rehab games at Triple-A Charlotte. He was playing well prior to his oblique injury earlier this month and is worth picking up in leagues where he was dropped.
Aug 26 - 12:36 PM

Adam Eaton (oblique) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Tuesday.

Eaton went 3-for-10 with two runs scored this weekend in two rehab games at Triple-A Charlotte. The dynamic 25-year-old outfielder has been out since August 9 with a strained right oblique. He was on a massive hot streak before the injury and should be a good source of fantasy value down the stretch.
Aug 25 - 2:15 PM

Adam Eaton (oblique) could be activated from the disabled list as soon as Tuesday.

Eaton will begin what's expected to be a short rehab assignment with Triple-A Charlotte this weekend. The speedy outfielder is eligible to return on Sunday and it sounds like he'll be back shortly after that. Eaton was red-hot before straining his right oblique, batting .435/.489/.518 over his last 22 games.
Aug 22 - 9:41 AM

Adam Eaton (oblique) took batting practice Wednesday.

The next step figures to be a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Charlotte. If all goes well, he should rejoin the White Sox for the start of their homestand next week.
Aug 20 - 6:27 PM

Adam Eaton (oblique) took some dry swings left-handed on Monday.

He still needs to take swings from the right side, but Eaton feels good about his chances of being activated from the disabled list on August 24 when first eligible. The young outfielder was batting .435/.489/.518 over his previous 22 games prior to the injury.
Aug 18 - 6:20 PM

White Sox placed OF Adam Eaton on the disabled list with a strained right oblique.

Eaton was removed from Friday's game due to soreness in his rib cage and the diagnosis of an oblique strain came Saturday afternoon. He also injured his lower back Wednesday when he crashed into the outfield wall while trying to track down a home run. The 25-year-old holds a strong .304/.370/.401 batting line on the season for the White Sox but could be sidelined for a full four weeks.
Aug 9 - 4:16 PM

Adam Eaton was removed from Friday's game against the Mariners due to soreness in his rib cage.

It was Eaton's first day back in the lineup after leaving Wednesday's contest with a bruised lower back. He should be considered day-to-day.
Aug 8 - 11:24 PM

Adam Eaton (back) is not in the White Sox' lineup Thursday.

Eaton had to leave Wednesday's game with a bruised lower back after crashing into the outfield wall. X-rays were negative and he is hoping to play on Friday. Leury Garcia is handling center field Thursday.
Aug 7 - 6:31 PM

X-rays on Adam Eaton's lower back came back negative.

He can probably safely be considered day-to-day, which is a relief after Eaton left Wednesday's game versus the Rangers following a full-speed collision with the outfield wall. The speedy center fielder entered the game hitting .453/.482/.528 over his last 12 contests before grounding out in his lone plate appearance.
Aug 6 - 3:15 PM

Adam Eaton left Wednesday's game versus the Rangers after colliding with the outfield wall.

Eaton was in a dead sprint when he smacked into the wall in right-center field while trying to chase down Adam Rosales' two-run homer. He eventually got up and walked off the field under his own power, but the outfielder is no doubt in pain. The White Sox should provide an update on his status shortly.
