Adam Eaton fine, but White Sox keep him out of the field

BOSTON — Adam Eaton is healthy enough to play, but the White Sox will give him a chance to rest his arm while keeping him in the lineup.

Eaton made the first start of his career as the team’s designated hitter on Monday and could be in line for another on Tuesday.

The leadoff man missed Sunday’s game after he jammed his shoulder with a diving attempt in the outfield of Saturday’s victory over the Cleveland Indians. Though he initially feared the worst, Eaton felt pretty good as the White Sox opened their second straight four-game series, this one against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park.

“Wasn’t feeling all that great (Sunday), but with the day off and some treatment last night everything’s going well,” Eaton said. “ They’re going to keep from throwing for one more day, but (I'm) able to swing and looking forward to getting back out there. Yesterday it was kind of tough to get my hand above my head, but today full range of motion and feeling good. I’m thankful it was just a jam. Was pretty scared it might be something more than that, but all the tests proved that it was just irritation and he pushed that right out and it feels good today.”

Eaton said he didn’t require an MRI but didn’t sleep well on Saturday night. Still, both he and manager Robin Ventura have been confident Eaton was fine since Sunday. J.B. Shuck started in center field in Eaton’s place on Monday.

“This is just to be able to take care of him and not send him back out there,” Ventura said. “For right now, you are just, you know you have a day or two here where you can DH him and hopefully he can feel comfortable doing that.”

'White Sox to the Letter'

Inspired by Ogden Nash’s 1949 poem “A Lineup for Yesterday”

 

A is for A.J.

Once punched in the face

If strike three ain’t caught

He’ll steal first base

 

B is for Baines

Who’s known to speak gently

When asked if he’ll homer

He said, “Evidently!”

 

C for Comiskey

The old baseball yard

When it was torn down

I took it quite hard

 

D is for Donkey

I mean Adam Dunn

He’d strike out or walk

Or hit a home run

 

E is for Eloy

He isn’t here yet

Though an All-Star career

Is still a good bet

 

F is for Fisk

The incomparable Pudge

From his perch behind home

Not an inch he would budge

 

G is for Gold

G is for Glove

Aparicio is

Who I’m thinking of

 

H is for Hawk

Unforgettable voice

Stretch! Dadgummit!

And don’t stop now boys!

 

I for Iguchi

Second base man

Won World Series

Returned to Japan

 

J is for Jackson

The legend still grows

A home run or touchdown

Only Bo knows

 

K is for Kopech

Speed, he has plenty

He’ll pile up strikeouts

In two thousand twenty

 

L is for Luke

Old Aches and Pains

Hit .388

That record remains

 

M is for Mark

As in Mister Buehrle

When he takes the mound

The game will end early

 

N is for no-no

Wilson Alvarez, Humber

Two by Mark Buehrle

Too many to number

 

O for Orestes

Miñoso’s real name

Not in the Hall

And that’s a real shame

 

P is for Paulie

He gave it his all

At the championship rally

Gave Jerry the ball

 

Q for Quintana

Kept coming up short

Only because

Of no run support

 

R is for Richie

But please call him Dick

A dangerous man

When he’s swinging the stick

 

S is for shoes

Which were not worn by Joe

In 1919

Please say it ain’t so

 

T is for Thomas

Amazing career

He went to the Hall

And brewed Big Hurt Beer

 

U for Uribe

He played everywhere

When the ball left his bat

Hands waved in the air

 

V is for Veeck

He knew how to sell

Fireworks, promotions

And Eddie Gaedel

 

W is for William

Or Bill; He was Beltin’

So hot was the corner

Third baseman was Melton

 

X is for Fox

At least the last letter

Among second basemen

Nobody was better

 

Y is for Yolmer

He has sneaky power

The master of giving

A Gatorade shower

 

Z is for Zisk

And others I missed

Unable to fit

In my White Sox list
