Adam Eaton remains out of the White Sox lineup on Saturday due to illness.

Eaton was given a night off on Friday as he was feeling under the weather and doesn't appear to have improved overnight. J.B. Shuck is starting in his place in center field and will bat leadoff against Ricky Nolasco and the Twins.
May 2 - 11:35 AM

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

Eaton had an awful April, batting just .192/.241/.256 over 19 contests. J.B. Shuck is in center field, while Micah Johnson is in the leadoff spot.
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.

Adam Eaton had a huge night Tuesday, finishing 4-for-5 with a double, triple and two runs scored in a win over the Royals.

Eaton followed up a 3-for-5 game with an even better performance, falling a home run shy of the cycle. Perhaps most remarkably, none of Eaton's four hits managed to drive in a run. The outfielder did score two runs himself, giving him 71 runs scored to go with a .303/.367/.403 line on the year.
Wed, Sep 17, 2014 01:00:00 AM

Adam Eaton was ejected from Tuesday's game against the Twins for arguing balls and strikes.

Eaton was called out on strikes by home plate umpire Greg Gibson in the sixth inning and evidently said something to the man in blue. The outfielder was 0-for-3 with a walk before exiting.
