Eaton said he plans to try to steal more bases in the final month of the season, MLB.com's Scott Merkin reports. "I definitely don't think I'm a 10-to-15 steal guy a year. I think I'm a 20-plus yearly. So, this month I'm hopefully going to try to put some pressure on some people and hopefully get those steals up to where I think I should be," Eaton said. "As much as everyone thinks that I've been in the league five years, I'm still trying to get comfortable."

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Eaton was slated to be the Diamondbacks' starting center fielder out of spring training, but he suffered an elbow injury that limited him to just 66 games last year. Even more disappointing for his fantasy owners was his lack of speed, often called his best attribute, as he stole just five bases in seven attempts. He struggled to find his groove, posting a lackluster .314 OBP. Presumably healthy, Eaton was traded to the White Sox as part of a three-team deal in December. He should get another chance to fill the leadoff role out of the gates for his new club in 2014, but he never had surgery to repair the tear in his UCL, which provides lingering concern about his ability to stay healthy.

2013

Eaton has ascended the organizational depth chart in Arizona with very moderate recognition, hitting .300 and getting on base at a .400 clip at every minor league stop. After hitting .380/.455/.539 at Triple-A Reno, Eaton was given a taste of the big leagues in September while taking on the bulk of the playing time in center field for the D-Backs. Throughout his time in the minors, Eaton has proven capable of handling left-handed pitching, and his primary asset for fantasy owners beyond average and runs scored will likely be stolen bases after he went 44-for-55 prior to his promotion last season. Barring a trade of one of the D-Backs' other outfielders, Eaton may be limited to a part-time role if he breaks camp with the big club.

2012

Eaton's full-season debut was impressive as he split his time between High-A Visalia and Double-A Mobile. His plate discipline was excellent at both stops as he carried a combined 72:76 BB:K between the two levels. While he's a bit undersized at 5-foot-9 and 180 pounds, Eaton has moderate pop and showed good speed with 34 steals before an 8-for-11 mark on the basepaths in the Arizona Fall League. At 23, Eaton may spend most of his 2012 with Triple-A Reno, but he's rapidly closing in on an opportunity to work as a fourth outfielder in the big leagues.
