White Sox Injury Update: Adam Eaton to start rehab Saturday

By on 8/23/2014 06:30:00 AM

The Chicago White Sox fell to the New York Yankees on Friday by the score of 4-3. The White Sox got all three runs on a Jose Abreu home run, his 33rd of the season. At 59-69, the White Sox are 12 games out in the American League Central. On the injury front, center fielder Adam Eaton is ready to take the next step in his recovery from an oblique injury, as he's scheduled to begin a rehab assignment on Saturday. 

I reported on August 9 that Eaton was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right oblique.  Eaton left the previous day's game against the Seattle Mariners after grounding out to the third baseman to lead off the game.

Daryl Van Schouwen, who covers the White Sox for the Chicago Sun-Times, tweeted the following update on Eaton.
Jordan Danks, in his third Major League season, has seen the bulk of the action in center field in Eaton's absence.  Danks is batting .181 with two home runs and nine RBI in 72 at bats this season.

Eaton, in his third Major League season, is batting .304 with a home run and 32 RBI in 94 games this season. Last season with the Diamondbacks, Eaton batted .252 with three home runs and 22 RBI. He is a career .280 hitter with six home runs and 59 RBI in 182 games.
