Chicago White Sox outfielder Jordan Danks has been optioned to Triple-A Charlotte according to a report on the official site of the White Sox.

In the article on Danks’ demotion it says:

"“That move figures to be the return of center fielder and leadoff man Adam Eaton, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Aug. 9 with a strained right oblique. He had a brief injury rehab assignment on Saturday and Sunday with Charlotte.”"

So that is some good news for the White Sox with Eaton planning on being back in the lineup on Tuesday as the White Sox host the Cleveland Indians.

Danks this season with the White Sox is hitting just .190 with two home runs and nine RBIs.

In his 33 games with the White Sox Danks hasn’t hit for a good average at all, but at least he did hit a couple home runs. I can’t lie … I’m very glad Eaton is returning, but Danks won’t never be more than a fill-in player on the MLB roster of the White Sox until he learns to hit MLB pitching for an average above .200. It is that simple, because the White Sox can’t have a player hit below .200 on the everyday roster.
