White Sox, CF Adam Eaton agree on 5-year, $23.5 million deal
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(3/20/15) The White Sox reached agreement with outfielder Adam Eaton on a five-year, $23.5 million extension Friday, locking the center fielder up potentially through 2021, per the Chicago Sun-Times.
The deal will pay the 26-year-old $850,000 this season but escalates to $8.4 million in 2019. The White Sox hold options for both 2020 and 2021. Eaton hit .300 with 15 stolen bases last season.
"We have a kid here who we think is going to be an essential part of our success over the next couple of years and is a rare piece in this game, a top of the order player who plays in the middle of the diamond, plays a premium position and brings you plus offense and the ability to get on base and run," White Sox general manager Rick Hahn said.
White Sox expecting Adam LaRoche, Adam Eaton back Friday
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(3/18/15) White Sox manager Robin Ventura is giving some of his players the day off to rest. With Adam Eaton dealing with an illness and Adam LaRoches sporting an ice back on his back Wednesday, Ventura wants to make sure his veterans are in a good place for Opening Day, reports CSN Chicago.
"Guys have been going hard, and everybody looks forward to it too," Ventura said. "You sit there and play all these games in a row, and it’s a time for a shift of focus, too. It’s a time for our guys to clear their minds and come back ready to go."
Ventura is expecting both to be back in the lineup Friday.

|(3/17/15) White Sox outfielder Adam Eaton has been scratched from Tuesday's spring lineup due to illness, the Chicago Tribune reports.
The team inserted J.B. Shuck into the lineup in place of Eaton, who is likely day to day. Eaton is 6 for 19 with two doubles, three walks and two stolen bases in seven spring games.
White Sox's Cabrera, Eaton learning each other's tendencies
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(2/25/15) White Sox outfielders Melky Cabrera and Adam Eaton are learning each other's tendencies, according to MLB.com.
The two players are expected to be at the top of the order once the regular season begins, and it's important that they can work together. "It's a process," Cabrera said. "We have to learn each other and how we can be successful together."
Both players sat down and discussed strategy recently, explained what they like to do in different situations. Eaton is expected to swipe a lot of bases, so it's important to him that Cabrera knows what situations he likes. On the flip side, there may be situations where Cabrera would prefer Eaton not run.
Eaton seemed to be satisfied after talking to his new teammate. "This relationship is only going to build," Eaton said. "Like I said, we took leaps and bounds just on Day One. Hopefully, we'll continue to work on that. I think it's going to be very important to the offense."
White Sox's Eaton excited to be working with Vince Coleman
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(2/24/15) White Sox outfielder Adam Eaton is expected to benefit from the tutoring of baserunning instructor Vince Coleman.
“I briefly spoke to him (Sunday), and he came off a little aggressive,” Eaton said, per ESPN. “I was like, 'Daggone, this guy is going to be on it.' And then I came back (Monday) and we went out on the basepaths a little bit, and he pumped me up. He really did.”
While Eaton has speed, he totaled just 15 stolen bases and was caught stealing nine times in 2014. Leg injuries played a part in Eaton's poor stolen-base percentage, but he also appeared to be timid at times.
Working with Coleman is expected to make Eaton more effective on the basepaths.
“You want to talk about knowledge and the understanding of stealing a base in baseball, his knack for being aggressive on the basepaths,” Eaton said. “You know me, I’m always thrilled and ready to play tomorrow, but he really got me in the mood.
“I want to steal bags. Get some pitchers out here. I want to do it now. I’m very, very, very thrilled to be able to work with him. I’m very blessed. I’m excited to pick his brain and learn everything I can from him.”

MLB injury, news and rumors roundup for March 20
Updates on the injured Jon Lester, Evan Gattis, Josh Reddick, Daniel Murphy, Randal Grichuk, David Ortiz and Andrew McCutchen headline Friday's daily news recap.
|2014 summary: In his first season with the White Sox, Adam Eaton finally delivered on the promise of both a high batting average (.300) and on-base percentage (.362) that he offered as a prospect. Still, his third season overall qualified as a minor disappointment, and not just because he missed significant time due to injuries. Part of Eaton's appeal is as a stolen base producer, and as recently as 2012, he stole 38 bases in 119 games at Triple-A Reno, but he stole only 15 bases last season while getting thrown out nine times. While Eaton has never been a great power hitter, owners likely expected more than a single homer from him, especially since he has U.S. Cellular Field for a home park.|
Playing time status: Injuries have cut into Eaton's playing time the last two seasons, but when healthy, he started nearly every game. Eaton has the potential to play between 155 and 160 games, and as a leadoff hitter, he will get plenty of opportunities to bulk up his counting stats.
2015 outlook: Even with a .300 average, Eaton fell short of the top 40 outfielders, both in terms of Fantasy points per game (minimum 300 at-bats) and Rotisserie value. Unless he reduces his strikeout rate, Eaton may not be a .300 hitter this season, and his poor stolen base efficiency is a concern as well. He can be targeted in the late rounds of standard mixed Rotisserie drafts but passed over outside of deeper Head-to-Head leagues.
