Adam Eaton went 0-for-4 in Friday's loss to the Mariners.
With the tough game, Eaton's now slashing .265/.341/.404 with 10 homers, 33 RBI and 76 runs scored. The average might be far off from his .300 mark of a season ago, but he's actually hitting for more power in 2015. He entered the season with just six career home runs. Aug 29 - 1:02 AM

Adam Eaton went 3-for-3 with a HBP and three runs scored against the Mariners on Thursday.

After a terrific July, Eaton was having a pretty pedestrian August coming into this (.247/.324/.333 in 93 at-bats). He's batting .267 with a .342 OBP in 476 at-bats for the year. That's just fine for a leadoff hitter these days, but it doesn't match last year's .300 average and .362 OBP. He's struck out 109 times already this year after whiffing 83 times in 486 at-bats last season.
Aug 27 - 11:27 PM

Adam Eaton smashed his 10th home run of the season as the White Sox fell to the Cubs on Friday at Wrigley Field.

His two-run blast off Kyle Hendricks in the fourth inning briefly gave the White Sox a 5-4 lead, but that would wind up being the extent of their offense. Eaton finished the afternoon 2-for-4 plus a walk and is now hitting .268/.347/.421 with 10 long balls and 30 RBI on the year.
Aug 14 - 7:40 PM

Adam Eaton (shoulder) is in the White Sox starting lineup on Saturday.

Eaton was removed from Friday's game after jamming his shoulder on a diving attempt in the outfield, but he's a gamer and ready to roll again the next day. He's in his customary leadoff spot atop the White Sox lineup.
Aug 8 - 3:46 PM

Adam Eaton left Friday's game with a jammed left shoulder and is considered day-to-day.

It's great news for the White Sox, as they really couldn't afford to lose Eaton's bat in the lineup for an extended period of time. He should return to the lineup at some point over the weekend.
Aug 7 - 9:27 PM

Adam Eaton was forced to leave Friday's game against the Royals due to a shoulder injury.

Eaton sustained the injury diving for a line drive off the bat of Ben Zobrist. The White Sox can ill-afford to lose his hot bat for an extended period of time. The team should have an update on his status shortly.
Aug 7 - 9:22 PM

Adam Eaton went 3-for-6 with a leadoff homer against the Red Sox on Wednesday.

Eaton has nine homers in 93 games this year after hitting one in 123 games last year. He's been one of the keys to the White Sox's turnaround of late, spending the last two months as one of the AL's best leadoff men after spending the first two months as one of the worst.
Jul 29 - 11:56 PM

Adam Eaton went 3-for-6 with a double, a triple, and two RBI as the White Sox won a slugfest against the Red Sox on Monday.

Eaton led off the game with a triple, then scored the first run in a four-run opening frame. He hit an RBI double in the sixth, and added an RBI single in the seventh, finishing a home run shy of the cycle. The outfielder has a .255/.329/.407 batting line on the year with eight home runs, 23 RBI, and 55 runs scored.

Adam Eaton (shoulder) is back in the White Sox starting lineup Monday night against the Red Sox.

Eaton was held out of action Sunday after banging his shoulder Saturday on a dive. He will start at DH against Boston right-hander Joe Kelly, with Adam LaRoche getting a night off. J.B. Shuck is in center field.
Jul 27 - 3:31 PM

Adam Eaton is not in the White Sox' lineup Sunday.

His left shoulder is a bit sore following a dive on Saturday, but Eaton is available off the bench and is expected back in the lineup Monday. J.B. Shuck is in center field Sunday.
Jul 26 - 10:58 AM

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.
Jul 17 - 5:39 PM

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.
Jul 12 - 4:53 PM

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.
