Angels sign outfielder Adam Eaton

The Los Angeles Angels have signed veteran outfielder Adam Eaton according to an announcement made on Wednesday. He was signed two days after being released by the Chicago White Sox.

Eaton joined the Angels after struggling with the White Sox from mid-April onward. He batted .201 with five home runs and two stolen bases in 58 games.

The Angels are currently besieged by injuries. In addition to center fielder Mike Trout, Dexter Fowler was put on the injured list after suffering an ACL tear. Justin Upton has also missed 26 games due to a strained back.

Eaton joined the White Sox on a one-year, $8 million contract. He had an $8.5 million option for 2022.

A year after playing well and winning a World Series ring with the Washington Nationals, it should be noted that he also struggled there at times as well.

During his 10 year career in the major leagues, he has .278 hits, 65 homers, and 317 RBIs.
