Eaton signed a one-year, $7 million contract with the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday, according to multiple reports. It has an $8.5 million option for 2022.
The Kenton Ridge High School graduate Eaton, 32, is entering his 10th season in the big leagues. He started his career with the Arizona Diamondbacks (2012-13), then played three seasons with the White Sox (2014-16). He played the last four seasons with the Nationals, who declined to pick up a team option on him for the 2021 season, making him a free agent.
