Angels Sign Adam Eaton

The Angels announced the signing of veteran outfielder Adam Eaton to a major league contract. To create 40-man roster space, left-hander Dillon Peters has been designated for assignment.

Eaton signed a one-year, $8MM deal with the White Sox over the offseason. He’d generally been a solid performer over his previous four seasons with the Nationals, but it was still a bit of a curious decision given Eaton’s underwhelming 2020 campaign. The left-handed hitter slashed just .226/.285/.384 across 176 plate appearances with Washington last season.

Good signing.

Chicago White Sox designate Adam Eaton for assignment

The Chicago White Sox designated outfielder Adam Eaton for assignment Wednesday, after the veteran recently finished a stint on the injured list with a strained hamstring.

“Very difficult organizational decision,” White Sox manager Tony La Russa said. “To have a veteran sit around, not playing, goes against why he was brought here. It’s just the reality of the some of the development of our young guys more than anything.”

Outfielder Adam Engel, who has also been slowed by hamstring issues this season, was reinstated from the 10-day injured list.

Eaton, 32, was in his second stint with the team after signing a one-year, $8 million deal which included a team option for 2022. He was batting .201/.298/.344/.642 with five homers, 28 RBI and 33 runs scored over 58 games.

He became expendable, in part, because of the impact rookies Gavin Sheets and Andrew Vaughn have had on the lineup as well as the positive prognosis for two of the injured outfielders.
