The Chicago White Sox acquire Adam Eaton in 3 team trade involving the Angels and Diamondbacks. The Angels sent Mark Trumbo to Arizona, and the White Sox sent Hector Santiago to the Angels. [RELATED: Chicago White Sox Top Prospects] Eaton is a 25 year old lefty that will bring speed to the top of the lineup eventually. He can get on base at the major league level, with an OBP hovering around .340 in limited action. He’s an upgrade in the outfield, but even with his speed isn’t anything spectacular to watch fielding. [RELATED: Jose Abreu Excited To Play For The White Sox] With the departure of Hector Santiago, 3 things seem clear. One, the White Sox seem comfortable with their pitching staff. Two, Erik Anderson will probably start the season with the major league roster as a 4 or 5. Third, Chris Beck has a much better chance of making the 25 man roster now coming out of Spring Training. In losing Santiago, the White Sox part ways with a very capable arm. Santiago went 4-9 last year, but was a much better pitcher than his record showed. The only troubling issue with Santiago was his climbing WHIP and ERA the more he threw. MOCK IT! There will still be moves made by GM Rick Hahn, so it’s hard to project what this means for the White Sox moving forward. It could mean that the talks to move DeAza will heat up, especially because Konerko is coming back. My guess would be that Eaton will start in CF for the White Sox on March 31st.   Follow @SportsMockery ____________ Photo Credit: MLB, BinaryAPI ____________ Sports Mockery is a leading provider of Chicago breaking sports news with prime focus on Chicago team sports.
