Adam Eaton traded to the Washington Nationals
The Washington Nationals have traded top prospect Lucas Giolito, Dane Dunning, and Reynaldo Lopez to the Chicago White Sox for OF Adam Eaton.
Eaton was a .284 hitter in 2016 with a .362 OBP, 14 home runs, 91 runs scored and 14 stolen bases. Eaton is an on-base machine and in the leadoff spot for Washington, he should get all he can handle. Expect Eaton to push for 100 runs scored along with more opportunities in every relevant statistical fantasy category. Hitting in a much better lineup than he has before, Eaton's value should be higher going into this season than last.
Adam Eaton records another multi-hit game
The White Sox lost to the Rays 3-5 on Thursday. Adam Eaton hit leadoff and finished 2-for-4 with a stolen base.
In the month of September, Eaton has had nine multi-hit games. He has also recorded a hit in 19 out of 23 games in September. Not to mention, in his last 30 games, Eaton is hitting .319 with four HR, 14 RBI, 24 runs and two steals. Eaton has been a steal himself for most fantasy owners and remains a must play.
Adam Eaton returns to the lineup and has a great day at the plate
Adam Eaton has not played since running into the wall three days ago. In his first game back, Eaton went 2-for-5 with a RBI, two runs, a double and a stolen base.
Eaton is a great fantasy asset in category leagues. He can steal bases, hit for average and can knock in a few long balls. He is good to play this week. Over his last seven games Eaton is hitting .276 with a HR, four RBI and three runs.
Adam Eaton left game in sixth inning after colliding into the wall
Adam Eaton ran to the central field warning track and led with his left (throwing) shoulder, but a large portion of his head and body slammed into the wall.
This could be a big problem for teams lacking depth. Eaton has been on a tear lately and to lose him during these important weeks could hurt. Hopefully he does not miss much time.
Adam Eaton hits a leadoff HR on Wednesday
The White Sox have now lost 80 games this season. After a hot start, this team has become a disappointment. Some individual performances have saved the season from complete doom. Adam Eaton is one of them. He went 3-for-4 with a HR on Wednesday. He finished with a run and a RBI. This was Eaton's 14th HR of the year.
Adam Eaton is undervalued in fantasy. He is consistent and a great player to own all season. Keep plugging him in as he is hot throughout the month of September.
