Los Angeles Angels Designate Adam Eaton For Assignment

The Los Angeles Angels have designated veteran Adam Eaton for assignment. Just last month, he signed a deal with the team after suffering the same fate with the Chicago White Sox. Thus, this is the second time it's happened to him this season. 

Eaton was hoping to rebound after a rough start to the season, but it just did not come into fruition. In 25 games with the Angels, he had a .200 batting average to go along with a home run and two RBIs. Therefore, it makes sense that the Angels have decided to move on from him. 

With the White Sox, the 32-year-old did a little better, but still struggled mightily. He provided more pop to the lineup there, as he had five home runs and recorded 28 RBIs. However, he still did not hit for contact well, as he had a .201 batting average. 

The Angels are recalling pitcher James Hoyt as his replacement. 

It will be intriguing to see what happens next with Eaton. Perhaps another team will look to bring him for depth and experience.
