White Sox, CF Adam Eaton agree on 5-year, $23.5 million deal


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(3/20/2015) 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
(3/18/2015) 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.


White Sox OF Adam Eaton (illness) scratched Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/17/2015) 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
(2/25/2015) 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
(2/24/2015) 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.”

Does Avisail Garcia have value this season?


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2014)
Can Avisail Garcia live up to the hype? (USATSI)
Can Avisail Garcia live up to the hype? (USATSI)

White Sox outfielder Avisail Garcia is back. After suffering a brutal shoulder injury April 9, there was a good chance Garcia would miss the rest of the season. That's no longer the case. Garcia worked his way back, and has dominated during a rehab assignment, hitting .340 over 13 games. Garcia entered the year as a late-round, high-upside player, so his activation should intrigue Fantasy owners. Will Garcia produce enough to help teams down the stretch?

The answer partially depends on how you evaluated Garcia entering the season. Scouts have been mixed. Garcia hasn't shown the best command of the strike zone while coming up as a prospect, but has tremendous physical skills. He frequently drew comparisions to Miguel Cabrera due to his body type. The White Sox obviously think highly of Garcia. The club not only dealt for him last season, but plugged him into the middle of the order immediately. 

On a performance-basis, it's tough to know what to expect. Garcia performed admirably in 2013, and got off to a promising start in 2014. Unfortunately, his 2014 performance consists of 34 plate appearances. 

The White Sox aren't expecting a dropoff. In his first game off the disabled list, Garcia will hit behind Jose Abreu. That's a desirable job for nearly any hitter in the majors. He'll also hit behind Adam Eaton, who quietly has a .370 on-base percentage. That should give Garcia some nice RBI opportunities, at least when Abreu doesn't go deep. 

Even in a best case scenario, it's tough to recommend Garcia as anything more than a reserve in mixed leagues. Outfield is deep, and there are other players on the waiver wire with better numbers than Garcia. While there's upside with Garcia, no one knows how good he can be at this point in his career. Given the choice between picking up an unknown in Garcia or a guy like Christian Yelich, a safe owner would choose Yelich almost every time. 

Garcia's outlook hasn't really changed since the beginning of the season. If you liked him then, you should like him now. But given the depth in the outfield, it's tough to say owners should spring to pick him up on the waiver wire. In three outfielder leagues, he can stay out there. In anything deeper, he's definitely worth an add. 


Is that stashed superstar really worth the wait?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/12/2014) So you're at the point, with the season winding down, where you have to win at all costs. Seems straightforward enough. The only problem is your bench is overflowing with players you can't actually use -- ones that are injured but too valuable to drop, like Brett Lawrie, Brandon Phillips, Adam Eaton, Michael Wacha, Paul Goldschmidt, Yadier Molina, Ryan Zimmerman, Joey Votto, Carlos Gonzalez or Masahiro Tanaka.

Or maybe your albatross isn't injured but just doesn't inspire much confidence right now, like Pedro Alvarez, Justin Verlander or Mike Minor.

I've got news for you: This late in the year, when winning is paramount, you can consider dropping them. Granted, it shouldn't be the goal because the competition can only benefit from whatever you forfeit, but sometimes, it's your only choice.

I break it down player-by-player in my latest post to the Fantasy Baseball Today blog, so if you could a little assistance with that season-shifting dilemma, be sure to check out.
