Adam Eaton (concussion) is not in the White Sox lineup Saturday against the Indians.

Eaton may have suffered a concussion when he crashed into the center wall in Friday night's loss. Leury Garcia will handle center field duties on Saturday while batting ninth against Cleveland right-hander Cody Anderson. With Chicago out of the playoff race, there's no reason to rush Eaton back for the final week of the regular season.

White Sox manager Robin Ventura admitted Friday that Adam Eaton was being checked for a concussion after his collision with the outfield wall forced his early exit from Friday's game.

Ventura also noted that Eaton's back locked up on him and that he hurt "a little bit of everything" during the collision. It wouldn't be surprising to see him get a day of rest on Saturday.

Adam Eaton was forced to leave Friday's game against the Indians after crashing into the center field wall after taking a hit away from Roberto Perez.

It's unclear exactly what the injury is, but Eaton smashed into the wall shoulder first and also hit his head in the collision. He remained on the warning track for several minutes while the trainer and manager Robin Ventura came out to check on him and ultimately made the decision to pull him from the game. Leury Garcia replaced him in center field and could draw a start on Saturday if Eaton is unable to go.
Sep 23 - 9:04 PM

Adam Eaton hit a leadoff home run and ended the night 3-for-4 in a loss to the Phillies on Wednesday.

The first-inning blast was his 14th of the season. In fantasy terms he is a jack of all trades and master of none. He contributes well in all five fantasy categories but isn't a stud in any of them. He has a .284 batting average with 85 runs scored, 58 RBI and 12 stolen bases. The 14 homers ties his career high set last year.
Sep 21 - 10:00 PM

Adam Eaton went 2-for-4 with an RBI double and two runs scored in a win over the Indians on Tuesday.

Eaton played an integral part in the Sox' seven-run sixth inning, drawing a leadoff walk and scoring before capping it with an RBI ground-rule double. The 27-year-old now has five straight multi-hit games to raise his average to .285, the highest it's been since May 29. He's been one of the bright spots for a disappointing White Sox club, posting a .797 OPS with 13 homers, 54 RBI, 84 runs scored and 12 steals atop the lineup.
Sep 14 - 12:27 AM

Adam Eaton went 2-for-4 with a homer, a walk and two runs scored Monday against the Indians.

Eaton has 13 homers this season. He should have more than 82 runs scored, but the White Sox are still working on putting together that solid lineup top-to-bottom for the 10th year in a row.
Sep 13 - 12:00 AM

Adam Eaton had a nice night at the dish in Saturday's loss to the Royals, going 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles and a run scored.

Eaton doubled and came around to score the White Sox first run in the third inning. He has done a nice job as a catalyst atop the lineup this season, slashing .281/.363/.421 with 12 homers, 51 RBI and 12 stolen bases.
Sep 11 - 1:15 AM

Adam Eaton is absent from the White Sox starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Tigers.

Avisail Garcia is in right field, Leury Garcia is in center, and Melky Cabrera is in left versus Tigers left-hander Matt Boyd. It's just a routine day off for the left-handed-hitting Eaton.
Sep 6 - 4:32 PM

Adam Eaton led off the game with a home run for his only hit of the game on Saturday versus the Twins.

It was a nice way to start off the game for the White Sox, but it soon went downhill in a hurry as they ended up getting blown out. The longball was Eaton's 12th of the season to go with his .281 batting average, 48 RBI, 75 runs scored and 12 stolen bases.
Sep 3 - 10:37 PM

Adam Eaton enjoyed a big night on Friday by going 4-for-5 with an RBI single, a walk, and four runs scored against the Twins.

Eaton had three singles and a double. It was his third four-hit game of the season. The 27-year-old has picked things up at the plate during the second half and owns a .281/.365/.415 batting line with 11 homers and 12 steals through 133 games. He continues to be a useful across-the-board contributor in fantasy leagues.

Adam Eaton (forearm) is in the White Sox starting lineup Monday night against the Tigers.

Eaton left Sunday's series finale against the Mariners after taking a Taijuan Walker pitch off his forearm in the fourth inning. X-rays obviously turned up negative.
Aug 29 - 3:50 PM

Adam Eaton exited Sunday's game versus the Mariners with a bruised right forearm.

Eaton was hit in the forearm by a Taijuan Walker pitch in the fourth inning. The good news is X-rays came back negative and he's considered day-to-day.
Aug 28 - 3:45 PM

Adam Eaton went 2-for-4 with three runs scored in Thursday's win over the Mariners.

Eaton had a pair of singles and a walk in the game, coming around to score all three times. He's now hit in eight straight to run his season line up to .278/.358/.417. The 27-year-old has 11 homers and 12 steals while hitting atop the White Sox lineup.
Aug 26 - 12:32 AM

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.
