Eaton (oblique) will head out on a rehab assignment to Triple-A Charlotte this weekend, and will likely return to the White Sox after Sunday, the Chicago Tribune's Colleen Kane reports.
WIth Avisail Garcia healthy, the White Sox will have four legitimate options for the outfield when Eaton returns, but he may be the best of the bunch, and should get plenty of at-bats upon his return. With a .304 batting average and 12 steals in 94 games this season, he can be of use in most formats if he was dropped due to his oblique injury. The White Sox have Monday off, so look for Eaton to return Tuesday against the Indians if everything goes according to plan.
