Eaton (hip, shoulder) is not expected to play until Monday at the earliest, Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago reports.

EDGE Analysis

A collision with the outfield wall Friday left Eaton pretty well banged up with hip, back and shoulder discomfort, and there is also some concern about a concussion. While Eaton reportedly passed his initial rounds of testing, it sounds like the team will wait a couple more days and be sure there are no delayed onset symptoms.

Eaton (hip, shoulder) is out of the lineup Saturday against the Indians, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

According to Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune, Eaton injured his hip, back and shoulder and was also evaluated for a concussion after a full-speed collision with the outfield wall Friday. Much to his credit, Eaton hung onto the ball to record the out. It's uncertain if or when he may be able to return to the lineup.

Eaton left Friday's game after crashing into the outfield wall in the sixth inning, the Chicago Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Although Eaton did secure the catch, he paid a price. He crashed into the wall in center field and appeared to injure his shoulder, requiring assistance to leave the field. The White Sox have yet to provide an official diagnosis.

Eaton homered, scored twice, knocked in two and drew a walk in a 2-for-4 game in Monday's win over Cleveland.

EDGE Analysis

Eaton now has multiple hits in each of his past four games. His batting line is now up to .284/.366/.427, which would be good for a career best .793 OPS, one point better than last year's mark. He is also just one home run away from tying last season's career high of 14 home runs. With 19 games left, Eaton has a great shot at it.

Eaton went 2-for-4 with two doubles, a walk and two runs scored Friday in a 7-2 win over the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

Eaton has been heating up in recent weeks. He is batting .310 for September and has hit safely in seven of his last 10 games. He now leads the American League with eight triples, and with Jose Abreu and the rest of the White Sox lineup behind him making some more noise, Eaton's total of 79 runs scored should also swell over the final weeks of the season.

Eaton is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

Eaton does not sit often, but manager Robin Ventura decided to employ a righty-heavy lineup against Tigers southpaw Matt Boyd, so Eaton will get a day off for the first time since July 30. Leury Garcia will get the start in center field Tuesday in Eaton's place.

Eaton (forearm) is in the lineup Monday against the Tigers, Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago reports.

EDGE Analysis

Eaton was lifted early from Sunday's contest after being hit by a pitch on the forearm, but x-rays came back negative and it appears as though the issue was a minor one. He'll return to center field and lead off against southpaw Matt Boyd.

Eaton was pulled from Sunday's game against the Mariners in the bottom of the fifth inning due to a bruised right forearm, Scot Gregor of the Daily Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Eaton's removal was for precautionary purposes after he was struck on the forearm by a pitch, but it doesn't look like he's bound to miss significant time. X-rays on the forearm have already come back negative, and the outfielder is being listed as day-to-day. He could be back in the lineup as soon as Monday's series opener against the Tigers.

Eaton went 2-for-4 with a walk and three runs, including racing home with the game-winner in Thursday's walkoff victory against the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

Chicago's leadoff hitter has been an on-base machine lately -- he's hit safely in eight straight games and owns a .367 batting average (and .426 OBP) over the last 12. However, Eaton's fantasy value is tempered by his modest power, mediocre RBI and run totals, and surprisingly low speed contributions. Eaton stole 30-plus bases three times in the minors including 44 one year, but has never even cracked 20 as a major leaguer. With only 12 this year, that'll almost certainly be the case again.

Eaton went 2-for-5 with a game-winning grand slam against the Indians on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

The slam, off Indians closer Cody Allen, was the first of EAton's career. That fact is not too surprising when you consider his power didn't really emerge until last season. He looks like a good bet to match the 14 home runs hit last year while still maintaining speed to achieve a steals total in the mid-teens.
