BALLER MOVE: Add all leagues
REGISTERED IN: 44% of leagues
ANALYSIS: The return home went smoothly for Chicago White Sox outfielder Adam Eaton. Eaton was Chicago’s first main hitter while Tim Anderson was sidelined and then moved up to second on Anderson’s return last week. He did a great job consistently based on both locations. He entered Sunday’s action on a seven-game streak and has reached base in every game he’s played this year.
In 13 games, Eaton has cut .265 / .390 / .469 with three homers, seven steps, 11 RBIs and 12 runs. He recorded barrels on three of his first 38 batted bullets, resulting in a much higher barrel rate (7.9%) than what we’re used to seeing from him, as he usually hovers around a barrel rate of 4%.
Eaton should be entered in all leagues and he is especially valuable in the points leagues in his place of choice in a powerful White Sox roster. His power numbers will likely drop, but he should be a strong source of hits, walks and runs all year round as long as he stays near the top of the roster.
