White Sox manager Robin Ventura said Friday that Adam Eaton (leg) is feeling "better."

Eaton landed on the disabled list earlier this season with leg issues, so the White Sox are being proactive this time so that doesn't happen again. "Just making sure you get him healthy and where he needs to be so we don’t lose him for 15 days," Ventura said.

Adam Eaton (leg) is not in the White Sox' lineup Friday.

Eaton left Thursday's game against the Blue Jays with cramping in his left leg, an issue he's dealt with a couple times this season. He's considered day-to-day. Leury Garcia is in center field Friday.
Jun 27 - 3:47 PM

Adam Eaton exited Thursday's game against the Blue Jays with left leg cramping.

Eaton has dealt with leg issues this season, though his DL stint was due to a strained right hamstring. If it's indeed just cramping, he should be fine.

Adam Eaton filled up the box score, going 4-for-5 with a double, an RBI triple, and a stolen base in Wednesday's 12-inning loss to the Orioles.

Eaton is on a roll, as he is now on a 12-game hitting streak. His contributions appeared to be enough but the Orioles came from behind late to steal a victory. Eaton hasn't hit for much power, but has done everything else. He's slashing .284/.352/.387 with one home run, 22 RBI, and seven stolen bases on the season.

Adam Eaton went 2-for-4 with an RBI, a run scored and a stolen base against the Giants on Tuesday.

Eaton was the facilitator atop a lineup that had 10 hits and scored eight runs against Matt Cain and company. The stolen base was the sixth of the year and first since May 31 for the 25-year-old. He's enjoyed a strong June after a subpar and injury-marred May, raising his overall line to a respectable .273/.341/.359.

Adam Eaton admitted Tuesday that he's still dealing with some soreness in his legs.

Eaton returned from a hamstring injury on May 18 and apparently still isn't totally healthy. However, he says his legs are "coming around," and he has no intention of getting any extra rest. "A couple of cold tubs, day off Thursday, and by Friday, we’ll have the spark back in them,’’ said Eaton.
May 28 - 9:21 AM

Adam Eaton was 3-for-5 with a stolen base and a run scored in Saturday's extra-inning loss to the Yankees.

Eaton is hitting .343 (11-for-32) since coming off the disabled list and has three straight multi-hit games. Chicago's leadoff man has the ability to be a dynamic fantasy performer, but he's only 11-for-19 in stolen base attempts in majors. He's going to need to improve his success rate to continue to get the green light.
May 24 - 5:15 PM

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

Eaton missed the minimum amount of time with a strained right hamstring. The speedy outfielder returns to a .276/.363/.378 batting line with one homer, 14 RBI and two steals.
May 18 - 11:10 AM

Adam Eaton (hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Charlotte on Wednesday.

Eaton is expected to get 12 at-bats with the minor league affiliate before being activated from the disabled list on Sunday. The speedy outfielder has been on the shelf since early May with a strained right hamstring. He'll return to a .276/.363/.378 batting line with one homer, 14 RBI and two steals.
May 14 - 1:33 PM

White Sox manager Robin Ventura said Thursday that Adam Eaton (hamstring) is likely to need a rehab assignment before returning.

Eaton has been limited to riding a stationary bike since landing on the DL last weekend but is "progressing," according to Ventura. "He'll probably go out and do something," the skipper said when asked about a rehab assignment for Eaton. "I think once you take that much time and you haven't seen pitches, live pitches, you at least want to go out and do something, to where you get your timing back. You don't want a guy coming back and not having his timing and then having to catch back up on the fly out here. It usually doesn't work out that well."
May 8 - 9:01 PM

White Sox placed outfielder Adam Eaton on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring.

This is quite a blow for the White Sox to lose a second starting outfielder. They'll probably go to Jordan Danks in center field most of the time, though they do have the option of using Alejandro De Aza there and Moises Sierra in left field. Danks is worth adding in AL-only leagues while Eaton is out.
May 3 - 2:55 PM

Adam Eaton admitted after Friday's game that his strained right hamstring could lead to a trip to the disabled list.

Eaton was removed from Friday's loss to the Indians after straining his right hamstring while running to first base in the fifth inning. He has just recently recovered from a strain of the opposite hamstring, and could be best served by taking time to allow the injuries to fully heal.
