Latest Update Adam Eaton went 2-for-4 with a triple and two runs scored in the White Sox 3-2 win over the Indians on Wednesday. Thu Aug, 28, 12:27 AM
Possesses good on-base skills, plenty of base-stealing speed and some pop in his bat. Can also play center field.
Flaws: : Must prove capable of hitting left-handed pitching over time. Also lacks high-end home-run power.
Eaton has picked up right where he left off after a brief stint on the disabled list, as he has now hit safely in each of his last two games. Through 380 at-bats the White Sox center fielder is slashing .305/.371/.408 and has the making to be a solid leadoff hitter for years to come as long as he can find a way to take better care of his body when on the field rather than play reckless every time he is in the starting lineup.

Eaton's made great progress back from the oblique injury he suffered a couple weeks ago, and should be ready to go Tuesday. If he is sitting on waivers in your league, he should be picked up immediately, as Eaton was on fire before being injured and has been very good this season as a whole, with a .304 batting average, 55 runs, and 12 stolen bases in limited time.

The White Sox will wait to see how he performs in the fist couple of games to see how long a rehab stint he'll need. Upon his return, Eaton should see full-time ABs in center, so if you're looking for some runs scored and a bit of speed, he's probably worth a look.Analyst: Howard Bender
