On the final day of May, Adam Eaton was asked about his health.

"Good enough," the White Sox's right fielder said. "I think a lot are guys are good enough right now. Not playing at 100% but we're 70, 80%."

 

Dropping below that threshold in June, Eaton landed on the 10-day injury list Thursday with a strained right hamstring.

Relief pitcher Zack Burdi was recalled from Class AAA Charlotte to take his roster spot.

"This gives us a shot here before we get deeper into the season, just get him well," manager Tony La Russa said of Eaton. "He's dealt with it, he's gone out there like a good competitor and it takes away from his game. The decision was made, just get him well."

Eaton has 5 home runs and 27 RBI over 54 games in his first season back with the Sox, but he's hitting just .195/.296/.345 and has struck out 51 times in 203 plate appearances.
