White Sox outfielder Adam Eaton is back on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right oblique, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. To take Eaton’s spot on the roster, the White Sox recalled outfielder Jordan Danks from Triple-A Charlotte.

Eaton left after one inning in yesterday’s game against the Mariners. He went on the 15-day disabled list a few months ago, on May 3.

Eaton, 25, has been an on-base machine for the White Sox at the top of their lineup, slashing .304/.370/.401 with one home run, 32 RBI, and 12 stolen bases.

    This guy is so much fun to watch in centre. Unfortunately his all-out style causes him to land on the DL on a regular basis. No need to rush it though, they have nothing left to play for really.

    Unfortunately his all out style forces him to misjudge balls hit 30 feet over the fence. Causing him to run full speed into it. Got a feeling that had something to do with this injury. In May and June I remember hearing guys on 670 say he was bad…just plain bad. Mainly because Hawk called him a spark plug and just felt like riding Hawk some more. I’m no Hawk fanatic anymore, but B&B were wrong and Hawk was right.

    That fence incident has to be one of the funnier things I’ve seen this year. Mainly because he wasn’t seriously injured.
