Adam Eaton smacked a solo homer and drew a walk in Friday's loss to the Royals.

It was one of two homers for the White Sox (Geovany Soto had the other), but they were both solo shots and that's all the offense the club could muster. Eaton has four of his seven home runs this season in his last 16 games, but he's batting just .234 over that stretch.

Adam Eaton went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts and an RBI sacrifice in Sunday's loss to the Cubs.

The White Sox managed just two hits against a dominant Jake Arrieta. Eaton did not collect either, though he did drive in the only run of the game with a sacrifice in the sixth inning. After a .300/.362/.401 campaign in 2014 that had some people whispering about a breakout 2015 season, Eaton has disappointed in the first-half, hitting just .245/.309/.383 with six homers, 18 RBI and 46 runs scored.

Adam Eaton went 1-for-4 with a triple in Thursday afternoon's win over the Blue Jays.

Eaton smacked a walk-off homer to end Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays. He didn't do anything quite so dramatic on Thursday, though he did manage to hit his seventh triple of the season. While he's come through a few times this week, he's still hitting a hum-drum .250/.315/.389 with six homers, 17 RBI and five steals.
Jul 9 - 4:42 PM

Adam Eaton hit a walkoff homer in the 11th to give the White Sox a 7-6 win over the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

Eaton also had an RBI infield single and a walk in the contest. His bat has been really solid since the beginning of June, though he's still not getting the job done against left-handers. He also hasn't been of a lot of help to fantasy teams with his five steals in 77 games, but he still figures to pick it up there.
Jul 9 - 2:16 AM

Adam Eaton led off his second consecutive game with a home run on Friday, though it went for naught in a losing effort against the Tigers.

It was his lone hit in five at-bats on the night. The White Sox leadoff man has picked up the pace offensively in recent weeks and now sports a .252/.319/.383 slash line to go along with five homers and 14 RBI.
Jun 26 - 10:20 PM

Adam Eaton walked and hit a solo home run in five plate appearances as the White Sox eked out a 10-inning win over the Tigers on Thursday.

Eaton led off the game with a solo home run off of Alfredo Simon. The multi-hit performance is his third in his last three games. He has made slow but steady progress on an underwhelming start to the year. He's currently hitting .253/.321/.375 with four home runs, 13 RBI, and six stolen bases.
Jun 25 - 5:22 PM

Adam Eaton is not in the White Sox starting lineup on Wednesday night against the Astros.

Jun 10 - 4:27 PM

Adam Eaton hit a two-run home run in Tuesday's loss to the Rangers.

Eaton hit the homer, his third of the year, off Rangers starter Colby Lewis in the third inning. The homer was his only hit in four at-bats. It has been a struggle for Eaton this season, as he's hitting just .233/.289/.354 overall.
Jun 2 - 10:58 PM

Adam Eaton went 0-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts in Saturday's loss to the Astros.

Eaton's mess of a season continues. He's now hitting .233/.292/.344 with just two homers and six RBI. He does have 26 runs scored. Be patient with him, as the talent's still there, but nobody will look down on you if you ride him on the pine until he shows some sign of breaking out of this horrific early season slump.
May 30 - 6:54 PM

Adam Eaton went 0-for-4 on Friday to snap his 10-game hitting streak.

Eaton was just 5-for-20 in his last five games, so he wasn't exactly red-hot. Still, his current .229 average is a plenty better than his .186 mark from the final game before the streak started.
May 22 - 11:15 PM

Adam Eaton went 4-for-5 with a double and two RBI, but the White Sox dropped Monday's slugfest with the Brewers.

To the credit of the White Sox, they were down 6-0 after four innings and still managed to make it interesting. Eaton helped start a comeback attempt, knocking in a run with a single in the seventh and later scoring. He knocked in another run with a single in the eighth. It's been a quiet year for the speedy outfielder, as he's only batting .225/.282/.304 on the year. Eaton has yet to hit a home run this season and didn't notch his first RBI until Monday night.
