The Chicago White Sox are bringing back a familiar face for the 2021 season. The team has signed outfielder Adam Eaton through Chuck Garfien. Eaton signs a one-year contract valued at $ 7 million with a team option for the second year for $ 8. 5 million. He will likely be the correct outfield player on the team and will hit near the top of the line-up.
Eaton is rejoining a White Sox organization that traded him after the 2016 season. In fact, the news of the signature comes four years and two days away from trading. Eaton had signed a five-year contract extension in Spring 2015 training, but the move came as the team was working its way through a rebuilding process.
The move comes after the Nationals declined Eatons $ 10. 5 million option for 2021 and paid him a dollar. 5 million buyout. Eaton struggled to stay healthy during his four seasons with the Nationals. He played 151 games in 2019, but the other three seasons he played 23 games, 95 games, and last season he played 68 percent of the shortened season before ending the year on the injured list with a broken finger.
His three years in Chicago have been pretty productive with a WAR of 5. 2, 4. 1 and 6. 6 before trading. Over four seasons with the Nationals, his accumulated WAR was 2. 0. However, he had a great performance in the 2019 World Series, a slash line of . 320 /. 433 /. 560 help the Nationals win their first championship.
