The Chicago White Sox will be without Adam Eaton for at least three games as he deals with soreness in his hamstring and ankle.
White Sox manager Robin Ventura says that the outfielder will sit out at least three games and while the team is calling it a mild strain one can not rule out a trip to the disabled list should the strain linger.
“It’s really right behind his knee,” Ventura said. “Probably a few days just to monitor and see. It should be back in time. He just couldn’t get out of the box. When he’s pushing to get out of the box is when he really feels it. He can run and probably run better than most. It’s just safer not to run him out there and maybe do something worse.”
Through 18 games this season Eaton is hitting a strong .282/.373/.394 with a home run and 10 RBI and 15 runs scored.
