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.

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.
