CLEVELAND — Chicago White Sox center fielder Adam Eaton will sit out at least the next two games after crashing into the padded wall Friday night.
Eaton is still undergoing tests. He was shaken up after he raced back and caught a drive by Cleveland’s Roberto Perez in the sixth inning of Friday’s 5-2 loss. Eaton stayed down for several minutes before he was helped to the dugout.
Manager Robin Ventura said Eaton is sore and the team wants to be cautious with its leadoff hitter. Eaton will also out Sunday’s game and Ventura said the 27-year-old will be re-evaluated when the team returns to Chicago.
Eaton, who said he is feeling better, is batting .283 with 14 homers and 58 RBIs. He also leads the majors with 18 assists and is attempting to become the first White Sox outfielder to win a Gold Glove since Ken Berry in 1970.
