Eaton went 2-for-4 with his first home run of the season and a sacrifice fly Tuesday in Toronto.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Eaton finished with a career-high 14 long balls last season, but it took him 20 appearances to finally get one in 2016. He does a good job of getting on base to set the table atop Chicago's order, but the 27-year-old's lack of steals from that spot and middling power limit his appeal in most formats.

Eaton raised his average to .394 by going 2-for-5 in Thursday's win over the Twins.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The 27-year-old outfield is coming off the most productive season of his career, and the only one in which he avoided the disabled list. Eaton has proven he is a top option in all formats, but especially 5x5 as he one of the better all-around players in the game. Although he has yet to launch a home run this season, Eaton definitely possesses 15-15 potential if he can stay healthy.

Eaton (personal) is in the lineup for Monday's game against the Twins, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Eaton was excused from the team for a couple days following the birth of his child, but he has rejoined the White Sox and will get back on the field Monday. As he has done regularly this year, Eaton will bat leadoff and man right field Monday afternoon.

Eaton (paternity list) should return to the White Sox on Monday in Minnesota, Scot Gregor of the Daily Herald reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Eaton missed the White Sox two scheduled games over the weekend to be with his wife as she gave birth to the couple's son. Sunday's game wound up postponed due to inclement weather, so Eaton only missed one contest. The new father should be back in center and atop the lineup Monday.

Eaton was placed on the paternity list Sunday, Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Eaton and his wife welcomed a baby boy into the world Saturday, and the outfielder will take a little time off to spend with the newest addition to his family. The White Sox recalled Michael Ynoa from Triple-A to add some relief pitching depth in the meantime, but Eaton's center field duties should primarily go to Austin Jackson, who is starting and leading off Sunday against the Indians.

Eaton is away from the team Saturday to be with his wife at the birth of their new baby, the Chicago Tribune's Paul Sullivan reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

This is a one day thing, and he will rejoin the White Sox for Sunday's series finale against the Indians. J.B. Shuck is starting in right field and hitting ninth Saturday.

Eaton is out of Saturday's lineup against the Indians, the Chicago Tribune's Paul Sullivan reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The 27-year-old outfielder has had a scorching start to the season, slashing .450/.500/.600 through five games, but he gets a much deserved day off Saturday. J.B. Shuck will get the start in right field and hit ninth against righty Cody Anderson.

Eaton went 2-for-5 with a double and a strikeout against the Athletics on Thursday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Eaton is off to a hot start in 2016, batting .563/.611/.750 as the White Sox leadoff hitter. The center-fielder has nine hits in his first 16 at-bats, but only two of those hits were extra-base hits.

Eaton picked up his third straight season-opening multi-hit game Wednesday, going 2-for-3 with a walk in a 2-1 loss to Oakland.

Competitive Edge Analysis

That's seven hits in three games for the speedy outfielder, adding up to a shiny .636 average to start the year. Although Eaton has the ability to contribute pop, speed and batting average at the top of Chicago's lineup, it's troubling that he's stolen bases at such a poor clip in his career so far -- he's just 40-for-63, a very poor 63 percent success rate. He also saw his strikeout rate spike along with his power last season, although Eaton still draws plenty enough walks to be an OBP asset.

Eaton said he felt "comfortable" after making his outfield debut Saturday, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Eaton's offseason shoulder surgery limited him to DH work for the first half off camp, but it looks like that trend will persist no longer. Eaton played left in this one, and he could shift from center to left on a full-time basis now that either Melky Cabrera or Avisail Garcia will likely DH.
