Adam Eaton is out of the White Sox' lineup for the second straight day Sunday.

Eaton is away from the club while his wife gives birth and the White Sox could place him on paternity leave. Jerry Sands is starting in the designated hitter spot, with Melky Cabrera handling left field and Avisail Garcia right. Jimmy Rollins is also sitting out Sunday, with Tyler Saladino getting a start at shortstop. Dioner Navarro is behind the plate.

Adam Eaton is not in the White Sox starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Indians.

There's nothing wrong with Eaton, he's away from the club to be with his wife for the birth of their child. Austin Jackson will take his place atop the White Sox lineup while J.B. Shuck draws his first start in center field.
Apr 9 - 11:11 AM

Adam Eaton tripled, singled and was hit by a pitch Monday against the A's.

The White Sox probably won't get very good production from the second spot in the order, but they're near the top of the AL in what they'll get from the first and third slots. Eaton had OBPs of .362 and .361 in his first two years with the White Sox, and he reached three of his four times up tonight.
Apr 5 - 1:16 AM

Adam Eaton (shoulder) is hoping to return to playing the field by March 23.

Eaton has been limited to designated hitter duty while working his way back from offseason shoulder surgery. He's expected to be ready to roll when Opening Day comes around, although the White Sox could use him in the DH spot if his shoulder isn't feeling up to par yet.
Mar 13 - 3:31 PM

Adam Eaton (shoulder) said Sunday that he expects to be "100 percent" ready for Opening Day.

He's still limited in his recovery from shoulder surgery and won't play the outfield for awhile, but the dynamic young outfielder has no doubts that he'll suit up on Opening Day. He's coming off a terrific season where he slashed .287/.361/.431 with 14 homers and 18 stolen bases atop the White Sox order.

Adam Eaton said Friday that his recovery from shoulder surgery has gone very well and that he has been able to participate in his normal offseason workouts.

Eaton also indicated that he'll be fully healthy and ready to go for the start of spring training. He underwent arthroscopic surgery in October after injuring his shoulder while diving for a ball in the outfield during a game in July. He's coming off a nice offensive season where he slashed .287/.361/.431 with 14 homers and 18 stolen bases and should once again be a catalyst atop the White Sox lineup.

Adam Eaton will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left shoulder Monday.

Eaton has battled soreness in the shoulder during the second half after injuring it on a couple dives in the outfield. It's a minor procedure, as the outfielder should have a relatively normal offseason. The shoulder didn't affect Eaton at the plate, as he sported a robust .335/.418/.486 batting line with eight homers and 13 steals since the All-Star break.

Adam Eaton is not in the White Sox' lineup Sunday.

He's getting a day off. Trayce Thompson is handling center field.

Adam Eaton delivered a two-run double in the third inning on Friday, leading the White Sox to a 2-1 victory over the Tigers.

That would prove to be more than enough offense for Chris Sale and the White Sox bullpen on this evening. Eaton finished the night 2-for-3. He has been a terrific table-setter atop the White Sox lineup this season, slashing .286/.361/.431 with 14 homers, 56 RBI and 17 stolen bases.

Adam Eaton went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run to help the White Sox trump the Royals 4-2 on Tuesday.

Eaton knocked the two-run home run, his 14th of the season, in the fifth inning to provide what would end up being the game-winning RBI. The 14 homers are by far a career high, as he'd hit just six total through his first three seasons in the bigs. It will wind up being a career year on almost every front for Eaton, who is hitting .285/.358/.429 with 53 RBI, 95 runs scored and 17 steals on the season.

Adam Eaton went 1-for-3 with an RBI single, but the White Sox lost 2-1 in 10 innings to the Tigers on Tuesday.

Eaton tied the game up at 1-1 in the top of the ninth after Tyler Saladino had tripled to break up the Tigers' no-hit bid. The knock extended his hitting streak to 11 games. On the season, he's hitting .281/.354/.425 with 13 home runs, 50 RBI, 91 runs scored, and 15 stolen bases.
Tue, Sep 22, 2015 10:16:00 PM

Adam Eaton is not in the White Sox' lineup for the second game of Monday's doubleheader versus the Tigers.

Eaton went 2-for-4 with an RBI in the first contest. Leury Garcia is handling center field in the nightcap.

Adam Eaton went 3-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored in Saturday's win over the Twins.

Eaton came through with an RBI single in the middle of a seven-run fourth for the White Sox. After a lackluster open to the season, the 26-year-old outfielder has turned things around to boast a .274/.348/.423 triple-slash, 13 homers, 46 RBI, 85 runs scored and 14 steals.
