Eaton is rumored to be the subject of trade talks with Toronto, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Jays are looking to acquire a left-hand hitting leadoff man with a strong OBP, and Eaton fits that description perfectly. In 2016, the outfielder played in a career-high 157 games while slashing .284/.363/.428. Post All-Star break, Eaton hit .301 with an .841 OPS, both well above his career marks of .284 and .771, respectively. The 27-year-old still has three seasons remaining on the five-year $23.5 million deal he signed with the White Sox in 2015, which also includes a team option for 2020-2021. With the Sox floundering, there is a legitimate chance the club may be willing to hit the reset button this off season and move some pieces.

Eaton is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Rays, the Chicago Sun-Times' Daryl Van Schouwen reports.

EDGE Analysis

He went 2-for-5 with a double, two runs, one RBI and a stolen base Tuesday after missing three straight games with hip and shoulder injuries. Eaton was not substituted for Tuesday, so it would seem he made it out OK, but the White Sox may not be ready to deploy him on back-to-back days yet. Leury Garcia will start in center field and hit second in his stead.

Eaton (multiple injuries) is back in the lineup Tuesday against the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

He will slot back in atop the order against right-hander Alex Cobb after missing three starts with multiple injuries resulting from a collision with the outfield wall Friday. The biggest concern was a possible concussion, but evidently no delayed onset symptoms surfaced in the days that followed the collision.

Eaton (hip) is not in the lineup Monday against the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

Eaton slammed into the outfield wall Friday and is still dealing with residual soreness from the collision. On Saturday, the White Sox said Eaton wouldn't return until Monday at the earliest, and they'll handle him on a game-to-game basis going forward.

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.
