Exeunt Adam Eaton. Enter Jordan Danks.

The Chicago White Sox made a move today.  It just wasn't one we wanted to see.  Adam Eaton has been put on the 15-day DL with a strained oblique.  To fill his spot on the roster, the White Sox have recalled Jordan Danks from AAA Charlotte.

This could probably not come at a worse time for the Sox.  Eaton is hitting a torrid .434/.488/.513 since the All-Star break with a season fWAR/bWAR of 1.9/3.9. That 3.9 bWAR is good for tenth in the AL.

This is Danks's second trip to the Sox this season.  After a very strong spring training, Danks had a bit of a hangover when he was assigned to Charlotte to start the season.  That funk continued when he returned to the Sox, hitting just .098/.229/.195. He's broken out of that funk lately in Charlotte, hitting a healthy .299/.378/.440 with five home runs since July 1st.
