CSN reported that Chicago White Sox centerfielder Adam Eaton will miss “a few games” following a loss Saturday night against the Texas Rangers by a 6-3 score.
Eaton collided with Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder on the first base line, finished the at-bat, but eventually left the game once the inning was complete.
Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago wrote:
"“White Sox manager Robin Ventura said he plans to keep his leadoff hitter and center fielder out for at least three games with a mild left lower hamstring strain.”"
Hayes also wrote:
"“The White Sox have no plans to place Eaton on the 15-day disabled list.”"
This team really needs Eaton on the field, not just for his talent as the lead-off hitter and in the outfield at centerfield, but just for the energy he brings to the team.
Lately the White Sox are a bit stagnant in their play, losing four games in a row, but Eaton has been a great addition to this team in 2014.
This season, Eaton is batting .282 with an on-base percentage of .373. He has 10 RBIs and one home run. Eaton also has collected three doubles and one triple. He’s walked eight times and has one steal.
