Eaton went 1-for-4 with his first home run of the season in the White Sox's loss to the Indians on Wednesday.

His home run in the the third was the first (and only) run the White Sox scratched on a suddenly stingy Shaun Marcum. Eaton has been able to turn things around a bit in May, and he has a hit in 12 of 14 games this month. Eaton has just one steal on the year, but at least he is getting on base with a bit more frequency. At the very least, that should result in an increased production of runs in a White Sox lineup that should turn it around.

Eaton went 2-for-5 with two runs scored in the 4-3 win over the A's on Saturday.

This is back-to-back two-hit two-run games for Eaton, who finally seems to be finding some form. He still only has a .292 OBP, which is just not good enough for any leadoff hitter.

Eaton went 2-for-5 with two runs scored in the 7-6 win over Oakland Friday.

Eaton. much like most of the White Sox lineup, has struggled this season, batting only .226. With an OBP of .288, Eaton's leadoff spot could be in jeopardy if he doesn't start getting on base.

Eaton went 4-for-5 with a double and two RBI in the White Sox's loss to the Brewers on Monday.

Eaton has had a stupendously-slow start to his season, with an OBP under .300, zero home runs, and just one steal in two attempts. However, he has been a bit better over his past 19 games, with a .341 OBP and six extra-base hits over his last 85 plate appearances. Regardless of how well (or not well) he is hitting, he remains entrenched atop the White Sox's lineup.

Eaton is out of the lineup Sunday against the Reds.

Eaton continues to hover around the .200 mark on the season, an unappealing number for a potential leadoff hitter. Following an 0-for-3 day at the plate Saturday, he'll take a seat Sunday in favor of J.B. Shuck in center field, batting ninth for the White Sox.

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.
