White Sox center fielder Adam Eaton is off the disabled list after missing the past three weeks with a strained oblique muscle.

Eaton was playing extremely well before the injury, hitting .419 in his last 25 games, and he went 3-for-10 with a stolen base on a brief minor-league rehab assignment at Triple-A.

Acquired from the Diamondbacks in the three-team deal involving Hector Santiago this offseason, Eaton has hit .304 with a .370 on-base percentage and .771 OPS in 94 games overall while making several highlight-reel catches in center field. At age 25 he looks like a long-term building block for Chicago and another player let go too soon by Arizona.

    Meanwhile, Jordan Danks was sent back down to Triple A Charlotte to make room.

    This means that Alejandro De Aza, Leury Garcia, and Dayan Viciedo will continue to cash MLB paychecks. I don’t understand the decision-making at this point that go into not giving Jordan Danks more service time. An outfield with Eaton and Danks would be among the better defensive outfields.
