Adam Eaton and the White Sox agreed to a 5 year/ $23.5 million contract extension on Friday. The deal will keep Eaton on the White Sox through 2019. The White Sox will also have club options in 2020 and 2021 (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: The commitment made by the White Sox speaks to the organization's level of confidence in their CF. In addition to the contract, the White Sox also brought in Vince Coleman as a baserunning instructor to help Eaton get better reads on pitchers. 2015 could be a breakout year for the 26 year old.

Adam Eaton hit .330 with an .840 OPS in his final 80 games last season. Also during that stretch, Eaton had 23 extra-base hits. This is hopefully a sign that he is starting to recover from his 2013 elbow injury. (Source: CBS Sports)

Fantasy Impact: Adam Eaton is not a first-round fantasy talent. However, if he continues his production from the end of last season and is consistent throughout the year, he could elevate himself as a top 25 fantasy outfielder.
