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.

Adam Eaton left Wednesday's game versus the Rangers after colliding with the outfield wall.

Eaton was in a dead sprint when he smacked into the wall in right-center field while trying to chase down Adam Rosales' two-run homer. He eventually got up and walked off the field under his own power, but the outfielder is no doubt in pain. The White Sox should provide an update on his status shortly.

Eaton has hit in 11 straight, collecting multiple hits in eight of those games, to raise his average to .309. That's pretty spectacular for a guy who was under .250 two months ago and was at .270 at the All-Star break.

Adam Eaton went 3-for-5 with two RBI, two runs scored and a steal Thursday as the White Sox beat the Tigers 7-4.

That's Eaton's third three-hit game in eight days. All told, he has 15 hits and eight runs scored during his eight-game hitting streak. Still, he's a better regular for the White Sox than he is a fantasy outfielder, what with his one homer, 29 RBI and 11 steals in 351 at-bats this year.

The outfielder hasn't done much in the power department, but otherwise has a decent .286/.358/.388 slash line with one home run, 27 RBI, and 10 stolen bases. Eaton recently admitted to playing through a broken right middle finger, so don't expect the power to appear anytime soon.

Adam Eaton has been playing through a broken right middle finger.

Eaton broke the finger on a head-first slide in the series against the Red Sox prior to the All-Star break but kept the injury quiet. He singled twice and stole a base Monday, so it appears the ailment isn't bothering him too much. "I’ve been trying to hold the bat a little differently and swing it differently," said Eaton "It’s something you deal with," Eaton said after Monday’s game. "It’s something you have to play through and I know anybody else in here would do it."
Jul 22 - 12:02 AM
