Adam Eaton reached base five times and provided a walk-off single in Monday's extra-innings win over the Tigers.
Batting in the No. 2 spot for the first time this season, Eaton collected four singles, walked once, drove in two runs and scored twice. He also added a stolen base for good measure. Eaton had really been scuffling of late, so perhaps this will get him going. Jun 14 - 12:54 AM

Adam Eaton went 3-for-4 in Sunday's loss to the Royals.

In his lone at-bat which did not result in a hit, Eaton drove in a run via a ground out. Through his first 198 at-bats this season, the 27-year-old outfielder owns a .288/.366/.409 triple-slash with seven doubles, four triples, three homers, 15 RBI and five steals. The power hasn't been there much to this point, but Eaton is chipping in nicely in terms of average and speed production.

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

He's getting a day off with the Royals throwing left-hander Danny Duffy. Austin Jackson is leading off and in center field, while Avisal Garcia is in right and Jerry Sands is in the designated hitter spot.
May 27 - 3:01 PM

Adam Eaton went 2-for-5 with a single, double and two RBI in Tuesday's loss to the Astros.

Eaton swatted an RBI single in the fifth inning before his run-scoring double in the 11th made it a one-run game. The multi-hit game was his seventh in 14 games this month, and he's racked up two RBI in three of his last four games. He's a big reason why the White Sox are where they are in the standings, batting .307/.400/.427 with 14 RBI, 19 runs scored and four steals on the year.
May 18 - 12:42 AM

Adam Eaton went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and two RBI in Sunday's loss to the Yankees.

Eaton jumped on a Masahiro Tanaka offering for a third-inning solo shot. He would drive in his second run an inning later courtesy of a sacrifice bunt. For the season, he is slashing .303/.396/.421 with two homers, 12 RBI and four steals over 145 at-bats. The average and on-base work is solid, though his overall lack of power somewhat handicaps his fantasy upside.
May 15 - 5:22 PM

Adam Eaton went 3-for-4 with a two-run double and a run scored in Friday’s win over the Yankees.

His run-scoring double was part of a four-run third inning against Luis Severino. We haven’t seen much power from Eaton in the early going, as he has just one run home run through 35 games after slugging 14 last season, but he has done a fine job as a tablesetter by batting .307 with a .404 on-base percentage. He actually has more walks (17) than strikeouts (15) so far.
May 13 - 11:00 PM

Adam Eaton went 2-for-3 with two walks, a stolen base and a run scored Thursday against the Red Sox.

Eaton had a couple singles to go along with a couple walks, reaching in four of his five plate appearances. The stolen base was his fourth in five tries this year, and he's got 12 runs scored. Eaton is slashing .294/.376/.376 overall.

Apr 10 - 12:01 PM

Adam Eaton is out of the White Sox' lineup for the second straight day Sunday.

Eaton is away from the club while his wife gives birth and the White Sox could place him on paternity leave. Jerry Sands is starting in the designated hitter spot, with Melky Cabrera handling left field and Avisail Garcia right. Jimmy Rollins is also sitting out Sunday, with Tyler Saladino getting a start at shortstop. Dioner Navarro is behind the plate.

Adam Eaton is not in the White Sox starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Indians.

There's nothing wrong with Eaton, he's away from the club to be with his wife for the birth of their child. Austin Jackson will take his place atop the White Sox lineup while J.B. Shuck draws his first start in center field.
Apr 9 - 11:11 AM

Adam Eaton tripled, singled and was hit by a pitch Monday against the A's.

The White Sox probably won't get very good production from the second spot in the order, but they're near the top of the AL in what they'll get from the first and third slots. Eaton had OBPs of .362 and .361 in his first two years with the White Sox, and he reached three of his four times up tonight.
Apr 5 - 1:16 AM

Adam Eaton (shoulder) is hoping to return to playing the field by March 23.

Eaton has been limited to designated hitter duty while working his way back from offseason shoulder surgery. He's expected to be ready to roll when Opening Day comes around, although the White Sox could use him in the DH spot if his shoulder isn't feeling up to par yet.
Mar 13 - 3:31 PM

Adam Eaton (shoulder) said Sunday that he expects to be "100 percent" ready for Opening Day.

He's still limited in his recovery from shoulder surgery and won't play the outfield for awhile, but the dynamic young outfielder has no doubts that he'll suit up on Opening Day. He's coming off a terrific season where he slashed .287/.361/.431 with 14 homers and 18 stolen bases atop the White Sox order.

Adam Eaton said Friday that his recovery from shoulder surgery has gone very well and that he has been able to participate in his normal offseason workouts.

Eaton also indicated that he'll be fully healthy and ready to go for the start of spring training. He underwent arthroscopic surgery in October after injuring his shoulder while diving for a ball in the outfield during a game in July. He's coming off a nice offensive season where he slashed .287/.361/.431 with 14 homers and 18 stolen bases and should once again be a catalyst atop the White Sox lineup.
