July 7—The White Sox have designated veteran outfielder Adam Eaton for assignment. Since signing a one-year deal for $8 million in December, Eaton has struggled at the plate. According to manager Tony La Russa, Eaton has been dealing with “leg miseries” all season. He was on the injured list from June 17 to July 2 with a hamstring injury. Before re-signing with the White Sox this year, Eaton spent the past four seasons with the Washington Nationals, batting near the top of the order in 2019 when the Nationals won the World Series.
Eaton signs with the Angels as a free agent on 7/14.
