More from White Sox News

The White Sox traded for Eaton this past offseason in a three-team trade with the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

I can’t say how much fun it was to have Eaton on the White Sox this season. He brought excitement and gave this ball club a spark for ’14, so I expect even more from Eaton in ’15.

He’s going to be a big part of the White Sox franchise for years to come.

Congratulations to Eaton on a greet first year for the White Sox.
