Eaton is in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Tigers.

Eaton will return from a three-game absence to occupy his usual role as the starting center fielder and leadoff hitter. He's off to a terrible start this season, but that hardly makes him unique among White Sox batters, and he should have every opportunity to work his way out of the slump.

Eaton (illness) remains out of the lineup Sunday against the Twins.

Eaton will miss his third straight game with a bug he can't seem to shake, and will get a chance to rest an extra day with a team day off Monday. J.B. Shuck will once again take over in center field and bat atop the lineup.

Eaton (illness) is out of the lineup again Saturday, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

The unspecified illness will cost Eaton a second straight start, but he appears no worse than day-to-day ahead of Sunday's series finale against Minnesota. Eaton has been mired in a season-long slump to this point (.192/.241/.256), but the team hasn't indicated he's in immediate danger of losing his job as leadoff man.

Eaton is out of Friday's lineup due to an illness, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

While Eaton's struggles to begin the season may have resulted in reduced starts recently, Friday's absence is instead related to an illness. It's unclear what he's dealing with exactly, but it will cost him at least Friday's contest.

Eaton is out of the lineup Friday against the Twins, Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago reports.

Eaton appears to simply be receiving a day off Friday, with J.B. Shuck replacing him in the order and batting ninth for the White Sox. He's been receiving multiple days off recently due to his struggle to begin the season, but he should return in the near future.

Eaton went 1-for-5 with two strikeouts in Thursday's loss to the Twins, and compounded his struggles at the plate with two defensive miscues.

Eaton was so distraught at his play that he shaved his beard after the game. He is hitting just .192/.241/.256 with just one stolen base after the first month of the season. For what it's worth, manager Robin Ventura doesn't seem eager to bench Eaton: "There's a lot of pressing going on," Ventura said. "He's caught in between that. There's frustration with that, and you understand that, but you just have to fight through it."

The White Sox signed Eaton to a five-year extension worth $23 million Friday.

The contract also incldues two club options, so Eaton could be on the south side through 2021. In the short term, Eaton should serve as the White Sox's leadoff hitter for as long as he's healthy.

Eaton was scratched from Tuesday's lineup with a stomach virus, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Eaton should be fine within the next few days, and he's otherwise had a healthy spring training. He figures to hit at the top of an improved Chicago lineup, which gives him a chance to rank among the league leaders in runs, if he can stay healthy.

Eaton went 1-for-4 with one run scored on Friday against the Royals.

The only real excitement the White Sox' bats could provide against the Royals on Friday was a triple off Eaton's bat. Eaton (.296/.357/.396) battled injury yet again this season and was underwhelming when it came to his power numbers, but he does provide promise in 2015 as a player that can score runs, steal bases and hit for average.

Eaton (personal) is in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Tigers.

Eaton missed the last couple games for personal reasons, but he will be back in action Tuesday night. Eaton will bat leadoff and man center field as he regularly does.
