White Sox activate Adam Eaton from DL, place Jose Abreu on DL

Baseball will be a little less fun to watch for the next two weeks. Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports that the White Sox have placed first baseman Jose Abreu on the 15-day-disabled list with posterior tibia tendinitis in his left ankle. The team has, however, activated Adam Eaton from the disabled list.

Abreu currently leads Major League Baseball in home runs with 15 and is the American League RBI leader with 42. The 27-year-old Cuban has been a godsend for the White Sox, who are currently still somewhat in the mix at 21-23 and in fourth place in the AL Central. In Abreu’s absence, Paul Konerko and Adam Dunn will see some time at first base.

Eaton was on the disabled list dealing with a strained right hamstring. Prior to his injury, Eaton was slashing .276/.363/.378 with 14 RBI and a couple of stolen bases.
