Adam Eaton drilled a clutch ninth-inning grand slam to give the White Sox a come-from-behind 10-7 victory over the Indians on Wednesday.

He came to the plate with the bases full against Indians closer Cody Allen and smoked a hanging curveball over the right field fence. Eaton finished the game 2-for-5 and is batting .276/.358/.418 with 11 home runs, 45 RBI, 59 runs and 12 stolen bases. He contributes well in all five fantasy categories but doesn't stand out in any of them. That sort of player often goes under-appreciated and can be a bargain on draft day.
Aug 18 - 12:59 AM

Adam Eaton went 4-for-5 with a run scored Friday against the Marlins.

The four hits tied a career-high. All of them were singles. Eaton has been a little quiet over the past couple of months, but he’s still batting .275 with a .356 on-base percentage. He still has a chance to match his home run and stolen base totals from last season.
Aug 12 - 11:11 PM

Adam Eaton went 2-for-4 with a solo home run as the White Sox beat the Orioles 4-2 on Saturday.

The home run was the ninth of the year for Eaton. The outfielder is hitting .273/.357/.412 with 39 RBI, 52 runs scored and 12 stolen bases this year.
Aug 6 - 11:17 PM

Adam Eaton is not in the White Sox lineup Saturday against the Twins.

Eaton hasn't missed a game since the first week of the season, so he was probably due for a day off. Avisail Garcia will get the nod in right field and bat fifth against Twins lefty Tommy Milone. Eaton should be back in the starting nine for Sunday's series finale.
Jul 30 - 4:45 PM

Adam Eaton blasted a leadoff homer off of Ricky Nolasco on Friday, but that wound up being the only offense the White Sox could generate in an extra-inning loss to the Twins.

Eaton's mammoth shot, measured at 451 feet, was the longest home run hit by any White Sox batter this season. He also contributed defensively, throwing a seed to the plate in the sixth inning to cut down the potential go-ahead run. He finished the night 1-for-4 and is now hitting .272/.357/.409 with eight homers and 37 RBI on the season.
Jul 30 - 12:04 AM

Adam Eaton homered, walked and scored a second run Tuesday versus the Cubs.

Eaton's walk rate is up this year, allowing him to maintain his usual strong OBP even though his average is down a tad. Unfortunately, the guys behind him haven't kept their end of the bargain, which is why he's scored just 49 times in 99 games.
Jul 26 - 10:28 PM

Adam Eaton went 2-for-4 and stole his 11th base of the season on Saturday.

Eaton is up to .276/.358/.402 in 406 plate appearances. He has only five home runs, 43 runs and 29 RBI on the season. His stats are down from last year's pace. He is usable in fantasy but his owners are likely scrambling for an upgrade.
Jul 16 - 11:40 PM

Adam Eaton filled up the box score in Friday's loss to the Braves, going 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI.

Eaton also scored a run and stole a base in the contest. His solo shot in the fifth inning pulled the Braves to within three runs at 8-5. With his two-hit attack, he's now hitting .277/.360/.402 with five long balls, 29 RBI and 10 stolen bases.
Jul 9 - 12:10 AM

Adam Eaton reached base five times and provided a walk-off single in Monday's extra-innings win over the Tigers.

Batting in the No. 2 spot for the first time this season, Eaton collected four singles, walked once, drove in two runs and scored twice. He also added a stolen base for good measure. Eaton had really been scuffling of late, so perhaps this will get him going.
Jun 14 - 12:54 AM

Adam Eaton went 3-for-4 in Sunday's loss to the Royals.

In his lone at-bat which did not result in a hit, Eaton drove in a run via a ground out. Through his first 198 at-bats this season, the 27-year-old outfielder owns a .288/.366/.409 triple-slash with seven doubles, four triples, three homers, 15 RBI and five steals. The power hasn't been there much to this point, but Eaton is chipping in nicely in terms of average and speed production.
May 29 - 6:30 PM

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

He's getting a day off with the Royals throwing left-hander Danny Duffy. Austin Jackson is leading off and in center field, while Avisal Garcia is in right and Jerry Sands is in the designated hitter spot.
May 27 - 3:01 PM

Adam Eaton went 2-for-5 with a single, double and two RBI in Tuesday's loss to the Astros.

Eaton swatted an RBI single in the fifth inning before his run-scoring double in the 11th made it a one-run game. The multi-hit game was his seventh in 14 games this month, and he's racked up two RBI in three of his last four games. He's a big reason why the White Sox are where they are in the standings, batting .307/.400/.427 with 14 RBI, 19 runs scored and four steals on the year.
May 18 - 12:42 AM

Adam Eaton went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and two RBI in Sunday's loss to the Yankees.

Eaton jumped on a Masahiro Tanaka offering for a third-inning solo shot. He would drive in his second run an inning later courtesy of a sacrifice bunt. For the season, he is slashing .303/.396/.421 with two homers, 12 RBI and four steals over 145 at-bats. The average and on-base work is solid, though his overall lack of power somewhat handicaps his fantasy upside.
May 15 - 5:22 PM

Adam Eaton went 3-for-4 with a two-run double and a run scored in Friday’s win over the Yankees.

His run-scoring double was part of a four-run third inning against Luis Severino. We haven’t seen much power from Eaton in the early going, as he has just one run home run through 35 games after slugging 14 last season, but he has done a fine job as a tablesetter by batting .307 with a .404 on-base percentage. He actually has more walks (17) than strikeouts (15) so far.
