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.

Eaton went 3-for-5 with a solo shot, his 10th home run of the season, in Sunday's loss to the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

It's already his fifth multi-hit game in August, pushing his slash line on the month to .327/.404/.469. Eaton's had a steady if fairly quiet season so far, hitting between .261 and .265 in May, June and July, but he could be gearing up for a big kick to the finish.

Eaton was moved to the third spot in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Tigers, the Chicago Sun-Times' Daryl Van Schouwen reports.

EDGE Analysis

He has primarily batted leadoff since the All-Star break, but saw time in the two hole before the break. Eaton's power is not quite at the same level it was last year, as he is slugging .408 compared to last season's career-high .431 rate, but he is still tied for fourth on the team with eight home runs. If this change holds, Eaton could be a better source of RBI than runs down the stretch.

Eaton is out of the lineup for Saturday's contest with Minnesota, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Eaton has seen game action in 55 straight contests and will get an off day Saturday as a result. Avisail Garcia will fill in in right, batting fifth. Eaton has gone 1-for-12 (.083) in his last three games but was batting .326 with a .415 OBP in the 12 games before that.

Eaton homered and walked in a 1-for-3 game with two runs scored Tuesday against the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

Eaton extended his hitting streak to four games and now has two home runs and three walks in that stretch. At seven home runs, he's still on pace to fall short of last year's 14 in 153 games, but he has added seven triples and 17 doubles to bring his slugging percentage up to a respectable .411.

Eaton went 2-for-3 with a three-run homer, two walks and three runs Sunday against the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

Eaton clubbed his sixth bomb of the year to give the White Sox a four-run a lead in the second inning, and later scored the winning run in the bottom of the ninth inning of a home victory. He's now hit safely in eight of his last 10 contests, and he's slashing .275/.361/.403 on the season.

Eaton (foot) is in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

He fouled a ball off his foot Friday, leading to his early exit from the game, but clearly it was a minor setback as Eaton won't even miss one start. While Eaton is on pace to match his stolen base total from a year ago, the power has been lacking all season and his run-scoring numbers have been hurt the struggles of those behind him in the order.

Eaton left Friday's game against the Tigers after he fouled a ball off his foot, J.J. Stankevitz of CSN Chicago reports.

EDGE Analysis

Avisail Garcia replaced him in the outfield Friday, but Eaton is expected to be back in the lineup Saturday. In other news, Eaton took back his leadoff spot from Tim Anderson shortly after the All-Star break, and he has gone 5-for-21 since the switch.
