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.

May 10 - 11:54 AM

Adam Eaton went hit-less in four at-bats against the Tigers on Thursday.

Eaton's been dealing with the flu over the past week, though he's played each of the last two games. Thursday might have made him ill all over again. He went 0-for-4 with a strikeout, continuing what's been a disappointing season for the 26-year-old outfielder. He's now hitting .200/.250/.267 with no home runs and no RBI.

May 1 - 4:27 PM

Adam Eaton went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Tuesday's win over the Indians.

Eaton led off the game with a single and scored the first run of the game, and he later doubled. The run was remarkably the first of the year for Eaton, who hits atop the White Sox lineup. He has struggled mightily out of the gate, but Tuesday's two-hit effort could be the beginning of a turnaround for the 26-year-old.
Apr 14 - 10:55 PM

Adam Eaton went 0-for-4 in Thursday's loss to the Royals.

While it didn't help fantasy owners, Eaton made a fantastic diving catch in center field in the fifth inning. The 26-year-old went 1-for-12 with a strikeout and no walks over the three-game set against Kansas City, but we're still expecting big things from Chicago's leadoff man.
Apr 9 - 5:46 PM

White Sox signed OF Adam Eaton to a five-year, $23.5 million contract extension with club options for 2020 and 2021.

The $23.5 million includes a total of $1.5 million in buyouts if his $9.5 million option for 2020 and $10.5 million option for 2021 isn't picked up. As these deals tend to be, it looks like a really favorable contract for the White Sox as long as Eaton stays healthy. Of course, the 26-year-old also guarantees himself plenty of security. Eaton had been slated for arbitration eligibility for the first time next winter, as the deal buys out at least one and possibly three years of free agency.
Mar 20 - 4:42 PM

Adam Eaton went 1-for-4 in Sunday's 5-3 Cactus League victory over the Angels.

The single didn't amount to anything. Eaton is batting .316 (6-for-19) on the spring. The outfielder was valuable to the White Sox last season, posting double-digits in doubles, triples, and stolen bases while batting .300. He could provide some sneaky good fantasy value in 2015.
Mar 15 - 7:51 PM

Adam Eaton went 3-for-3 with a double and a run scored in Sunday's loss to the Royals.

The three-hit afternoon served to get Eaton's average up to .300. The outfielder missed almost 40 games due to injury, but he had 10 triples, 15 stolen bases and 76 runs scored when healthy. The 25-year-old has a bright future in the White Sox' outfield.
