Royals Option 16th-Ranked Prospect

The Kansas City Royals have optioned outfielder Nate Eaton to Triple-A Omaha. 

Eaton was finally getting his first taste of major league action. However, he wasn't quite good. In 19 games, Eaton hit just .182/.255/.318, with one home run, three RBIs and two stolen bases. 

He'll head back down to the minors and look to figure things out again.

In the minors this season, it's been a different story for the twenty-five-year-old. Over 86 games in the minors this season, Eaton is slashing .289/.355/.471. with 13 home runs, 51 RBIs and 21 stolen bases. 

We'll likely see him back in the majors at some point in the near future.
