by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2014) White Sox outfielder Adam Eaton was forced out of Friday's contest against the Rangers with a lower body injury, possibly a hamstring injury, Comcast SportsNet Chicago suggests.

Adam Eaton slugs first home run Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/12/2014) White Sox outfielder Adam Eaton went 2 for 3 with his first home run of the season in his team's 12-6 loss to the Indians Saturday.

Eaton also connected on a double and walked twice while scoring two runs and driving in a run with his second-inning solo home run. He's provided a spark to the White Sox lineup by hitting .354/.448/.521 with one home run, nine RBI and one stolen base in 48 at-bats.


White Sox move forward without Avisail Garcia in outfield


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2014) In the first game after it was announced outfielder Avisail Garcia would miss the rest of the season due to a shoulder injury, the White Sox aligned their outfield with Alejandro De Aza in left field, Adam Eaton in center field and Dayan Viciedo replacing Garcia in right field Thursday vs. Cleveland.

Viciedo and De Aza are likely to see more playing time in Garcia's absence. Jordan Danks, who was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte, is likely to work into the outfield mix as well. The White Sox have Leury Garcia listed as a reserve outfielder on the team's depth chart, but he has yet to make a start in the outfield this season.

"You've got to love [Eaton and] what he's done down here. Definitely what you look for in a leadoff hitter."

Eaton is batting .333 this spring after showing some promise with Arizona in 2013 and landing in Chicago via trade.

Adam Eaton sits against tough lefty


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Pollock and Willie Bloomquist in their outfield Monday against the Dodgers to ensure that Adam Eaton wouldn't have to start against left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu.

Adam Eaton looking healthy again


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/28/2013) At the time he sprained his left elbow in spring training, Diamondbacks outfielder Adam Eaton was one of the most hyped sleepers in Fantasy, but nearly two months since returning from the DL, he has yet to regain that hype. I'm about ready to heap it on him again.

My hesitance was mostly because I didn't believe he was completely healthy. He technically had a small tear in his UCL -- an injury that, in its most severe form, requires Tommy John surgery -- which made me suspicious of his struggles both on his rehab assignment and in his first few weeks off the DL. Looking back at some of the more recent hitters who ended up needing Tommy John surgery, their batting averages all plummeted in the weeks leading up to the diagnosis. Eaton hit .348 over his minor-league career, which made his .216 batting average on Aug. 17 all the more notable.

In 10 games since, though, he's hitting .386 (17 for 44) with two doubles, two triples and a homer, finally showing some extra-base pop. He also has two steals -- his first two since returning. No telling where those have been all this time.

If his early struggles were more a matter of rust than health, which now seems all the more feasible, Eaton is an even more intriguing sleeper than Khris Davis down the stretch.


Adam Eaton racks up four hits


by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com
(8/25/2013) Diamondbacks outfielder Adam Eaton racked up four hits in Saturday's 18-inning victory over Philadelphia.

Eaton finished 4 for 10 with a double, a triple, two runs scored and two RBI. His double in the 18th knocked in Tony Campana for what turned out to be the game-winning run. Eaton is hitting .258/.336/.375.


Adam Eaton back against the Reds


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/21/2013) Diamondbacks outfielder Adam Eaton is back in the team's starting lineup Wednesday against the Reds. 

Eaton was rested for Tuesday's game, but has returned to the lineup. He'll hit leadoff against Mike Leake. Eaton is hitting .240/.315/.320 in 100 at-bats. 


Adam Eaton sitting Tuesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2013) Diamondbacks outfielder Adam Eaton is not in the team's starting lineup Tuesday against the Reds. 

A.J. Pollock will get the start in center. Eaton is hitting .242/.318/.323 in 99 at-bats. He's likely receiving a normal day off. 


Adam Eaton's go-ahead double among four-hit game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2013) Diamondbacks outfielder Adam Eaton had a go-ahead, two-RBI double in the top of the 16th inning Sunday at Pittsburgh, lifting Arizona to a 4-2 win. Eaton totaled four hits and one run in seven at-bats.

Eaton is batting .308 (12 for 39) with one home run, two doubles, five RBI and seven runs in 10 August games (eight starts).


Adam Eaton not benched for mental lapse


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/14/2013) Diamondbacks outfielder Adam Eaton was left out of the starting lineup Wednesday against the Orioles, but manager Kirk Gibson stressed it wasn't because he didn't run hard to first base Tuesday, per The Arizona Republic. However, Gibson said he would have pulled Eaton from the game if he had enough players available.

Eaton said his actions Tuesday weren't a matter of frustration. He said it was a mental lapse and he thought there were two outs.


Chronic hives issue causes Adam Eaton to drop weight


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/14/2013) Until recently, Diamondbacks outfielder Adam Eaton has been battling a chronic case of hives since December, according to The Arizona Republic. He believes all the sweating from the hives caused his weight to drop from 185 to 175 since returning from the disabled list July 9.

"My wife’s been cooking me bacon and eggs in the morning so hopefully we can start building it back up," Eaton said. "I can play at this weight, but I’d like to have a little bit more thump, a little more butt."

Eaton had blood tests done, but nothing was pinpointed as the root cause of his condition.

"I was taking it (allergy pills) twice a day and it didn’t care," Eaton said. "It just came through. Real bad itchy. Just terrible. Sweating all the time. I got a shot and then another shot. Then I got some pills. Now I’m on two medications. I’ve been hives-free for about 72 hours now."


Adam Eaton delivers win with walkoff home run


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/13/2013) Diamondbacks outfielder Adam Eaton made his first home run of the season count, hitting a walkoff solo homer in the ninth inning of Monday's 7-6 win over the Orioles.

Eaton has picked things up in August, going 9 for 25 with six runs and three RBI. He's hit .247/.333/.338 in 77 at-bats since joining the team in July.


Don't lose hope in Adam Eaton


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/24/2013) Diamondbacks outfielder Adam Eaton had his best game Tuesday against the Cubs since returning to the lineup July 9. Eaton went 3 for 4 with three runs and one walk, while also attempting his first steal of the season.

The results haven't been great for Eaton since coming off the DL, but I still feel patient Fantasy owners will be rewarded. Though he did play a lot in the minors before coming off the DL, Eaton is still in spring training mode after missing a good portion of the first half recovering an elbow injury.

Personally, I would rather have Marlins rookie Christian Yelich over Eaton, but both players should be owned in Fantasy. Don't forget Eaton was primed for a breakout season before getting hurt, so he might just need a bit more time to settle into a rhythm. It's not time to lose hope just yet.


Adam Eaton having little success since return


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/22/2013) Diamondbacks outfielder Adam Eaton has yet to hit his stride offensively since coming off the disabled list July 9. Eaton, who missed most of the first half due to an elbow injury, is batting .200 (5 for 25) with one triple, two RBI, two runs and three walks in nine games (six starts) since joining the Arizona lineup.

Adam Eaton makes first impact


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/12/2013) Diamondbacks outfielder Adam Eaton's first hit of the season was a big one Thursday, as he drove in two runs with an RBI triple in a 5-3 win over the Brewers. Eaton went 1 for 3 with a walk in the game, while driving in two runs and scoring once. He added a walk as well.

Eaton is 1 for 8 since returning from an elbow injury. 


Adam Eaton goes hitless in debut


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2013) Playing in his first game of the season Tuesday, Diamondbacks center fielder Adam Eaton went 0 for 4 with a strikeout atop his team's lineup in a 6-1 loss to the Dodgers. Eaton did earn an outfield assist by throwing out Yasiel Puig at home.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
