Adam Eaton will test out his strained left hamstring prior to Tuesday's game.

Eaton is confident that he won't need a trip to the disabled list, but more will be known after he tests things out Tuesday. "We are going to see how it feels and if it feels good, we'll give it a go tomorrow," Eaton said. "So, we are going to take today and rest completely. Not even throw spikes on unfortunately. Take a full day and tomorrow get out there on the field and test it and, like I said, hopefully be ready to go tomorrow. If not, then the day after. Hopefully, be truthful with it tomorrow and make sure we're ready to go."

Adam Eaton (hamstring) is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Tigers.

Jordan Danks is playing in center field and leading off in Eaton's absence. On Saturday, manager Robin Ventura said that Eaton will miss at least three games with a strained hamstring suffered on Friday and aggravated on Saturday. Don't expect Eaton to be back until Wednesday at the earliest.

White Sox manager Robin Ventura said Saturday that Adam Eaton (hamstring) will sit out at least three games.

Eaton injured both his hamstring and ankle on Friday and then aggravated the hamstring ailment Saturday. The White Sox are calling it a mild strain, but they want to be safe and hold the outfielder out for at least a few days. "It’s really right behind his knee," Ventura said. "Probably a few days just to monitor and see. It should be back in time. He just couldn’t get out of the box. When he’s pushing to get out of the box is when he really feels it. He can run and probably run better than most. It’s just safer not to run him out there and maybe do something worse."

Adam Eaton was removed from Saturday's game against the Rangers with a mild left hamstring strain.

Eaton was 0-for-3 when he left in the fifth inning for Alejandro De Aza. The White Sox are listing him as day-to-day for now, but hamstring strains -- even mild ones -- often lead to disabled list stints.
Apr 19 - 10:35 PM

Adam Eaton is expected to be in the White Sox starting lineup on Saturday after leaving Friday's game early with a lower body injury.

Eaton sustained the injury while awkwardly rounding first base after his first inning single. His rest on Friday was merely a precautionary measure, and the injury isn't expected to be an issue moving forward.

Adam Eaton launched his first home run of the season in a losing effort against the Indians on Saturday.

Apr 12 - 5:41 PM

Adam Eaton went 2-for-4 with three runs scored as the White Sox romped over the Rockies on Tuesday.

Eaton was one of six White Sox hitters to score at least two runs, as the Sox hung 15 runs on Rockies pitching. Eaton also stole his first base of the season, swiping third as part of a double steal. The Sox are hoping for more of the same from their leadoff hitter going forward after the 25-year-old stole 106 bases in his minor league career.
Apr 9 - 12:47 AM

Adam Eaton continued to swing the bat well in Friday's loss to the Royals, going 2-for-4 with a run scored and two RBI.

Eaton has started his White Sox tenure off with a bang, slashing .313/.400/.438 with four RBI in his first four games. His impressive blend of power and speed, combined with a friendly home ballpark, should make him an extremely valuable contributor in fantasy leagues this season.
Apr 4 - 7:59 PM

Adam Eaton had two more hits on Thursday against the Cubs, singling twice in three at-bats.

Eaton is coming off of a four-hit day on Wednesday. Thursday's outing brought his Cactus League average up to .368 in 57 at-bats. Few can say they've had as productive a spring as Eaton.
Mar 27 - 5:06 PM

Adam Eaton had a productive day, hitting four singles and scoring twice in five at-bats against the Reds on Wednesday.

Eaton's average jumps up to .352 with the effort. The new center fielder for the White Sox, Eaton should be a multi-faceted run producer and a valuable fantasy asset.
Mar 26 - 6:44 PM

Adam Eaton went 3-for-3 against the Mariners on Thursday.

All three hits were singles, bumping his spring average up to .556 in the early going. Acquired from the D'Backs in December, Eaton should be a dynamic asset to the White Sox this season, providing power, speed, and defense in the outfield.
Mar 6 - 5:37 PM

Adam Eaton led off and reached in both of his plate appearances in a losing effort against the Dodgers on Friday.

Eaton singled and walked in his two trips to the dish. The speedy young outfielder drew the start in left field and hit atop Robin Ventura's lineup, with last season's leadoff hitter Alejandro De Aza given the day off. Provided he remains in that role, his combination of power and speed make him a very intriguing commodity in fantasy drafts this spring.
Feb 28 - 7:57 PM

White Sox acquired OF Adam Eaton in a three-team trade with the Diamondbacks and Angels.

White Sox GM Rick Hahn said Tuesday while announcing the swap that he's been pestering Diamondbacks GM Kevin Towers about a trade for Eaton since the offseason began, calling him a true "dirtbag" type of player. Eaton got a late start in 2013 because of an injury and never quite got his bat going, but he's a highly-athletic outfielder with speed, pop, and on-base ability. The 25-year-old could flourish in Chicago.

Keith Law of ESPN reports that trade talks between the Angels and Diamondbacks regarding Mark Trumbo and Tyler Skaggs have expanded to include the White Sox.

As part of the proposed three-way deal, Diamondbacks outfielder Adam Eaton would be headed to Chicago while the White Sox would send left-hander Hector Santiago to the Angels. It's not done yet and there will likely be other pieces involved, but it could be a creative way for all three teams to address areas of need.
