Adam Eaton 'improving,' but Sox exercising caution originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago

White Sox manager Tony La Russa said outfielder Adam Eaton is "improving" after leaving Wednesday's game with hamstring tightness.

According to La Russa, Eaton was "pretty sore" Wednesday after stealing a base and running out a groundball vs. the Cardinals. He didn't play Thursday's series opener with Baltimore and is out of the lineup for Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader.

La Russa said Thursday the club will be careful with Eaton, echoing those comments Saturday. The White Sox want to get him as much rest as they can to get him closer to full strength.

"He's probably 80, 85 percent, which is playable," La Russa said Saturday. "With a lot of season ahead, we'd like to get him to 100 [percent] if we can."

Eaton is out of the lineup Saturday, but Tim Anderson is back after missing Thursday's game with thumb soreness. Anderson, who also was in Friday's lineup before the game was rained out, is leading off and playing shortstop.
