DETROIT — One thing is certain regarding Adam Eatons slight strain in the lower part of his left hamstring: this White Sox leadoff man will not have one more say on when he results.
But Eaton, who missed Sunday along with Monday with the injury that forced him to depart following your top of the fifth inning Saturday, may test the problem on Tuesday to find out where he stands.
We will certainly see how it feels and when it feels good, well have a go tomorrow, Eaton said. So, we can take today and remainder completely. Not even throw spikes on unfortunately.
Take a full morning and tomorrow get out there on the field and test it and, including I said, hopefully anticipate to go tomorrow. If not, then this day after. Hopefully, be truthful from it tomorrow and make sure were all set.
Eaton doesnt see any scenario in which he would end up on the handicapped list because of this injury, however he is eager to return. While asked how he believed sitting on the bench over the clubs 16-run outburst Sunday, Eaton smiled and replied, What do you think?
Its been terrible. I hate it. Especially a game like yesterday, Eaton carried on. I told these guys, its about time weve got the scrappy leadoff hitter out of at this time there, so you guys can just rake .
The biggest issue for Eaton is getting straight into fourth or fifth products when running. White Sox boss Robin Ventura originally thought Eaton can be out of action for at least three days, so even if he checks well Tuesday, Wednesday could be his earliest return.
Well always be very cautious with them because hes kind of a maniac when he runs around, so you have to become careful, Ventura said. I did explain that to your pet that because of his style, we can talk about it, although were not going to go by everything he says, in a good way, a good way.
