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. Jan 30 - 11:29 AM

Adam Eaton will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left shoulder Monday.

Eaton has battled soreness in the shoulder during the second half after injuring it on a couple dives in the outfield. It's a minor procedure, as the outfielder should have a relatively normal offseason. The shoulder didn't affect Eaton at the plate, as he sported a robust .335/.418/.486 batting line with eight homers and 13 steals since the All-Star break.

Adam Eaton delivered a two-run double in the third inning on Friday, leading the White Sox to a 2-1 victory over the Tigers.

That would prove to be more than enough offense for Chris Sale and the White Sox bullpen on this evening. Eaton finished the night 2-for-3. He has been a terrific table-setter atop the White Sox lineup this season, slashing .286/.361/.431 with 14 homers, 56 RBI and 17 stolen bases.

Adam Eaton went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run to help the White Sox trump the Royals 4-2 on Tuesday.

Eaton knocked the two-run home run, his 14th of the season, in the fifth inning to provide what would end up being the game-winning RBI. The 14 homers are by far a career high, as he'd hit just six total through his first three seasons in the bigs. It will wind up being a career year on almost every front for Eaton, who is hitting .285/.358/.429 with 53 RBI, 95 runs scored and 17 steals on the season.

His fifth-inning shot was the only offense the White Sox would muster against the Twins. Fantasy owners weren't counting on much power from Eaton this season, but he has amassed 13 home runs in 133 games. He had just six over his first 211 games in the majors from 2012-2014.

Eaton did all he could, chipping in a two-run single in the fifth and reaching base four times in the losing effort. Eaton is coming off his worst month since April, batting .259/.347/.333 in August, but he has largely been good at the White Sox lineup this year.

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.

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.

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.
