• Eaton likes the idea of drawing comparisons to Aaron Rowand, and his grinder-rules style of play.

"I met Aaron at fantasy camp down in Arizona, and he seemed like an awesome guy," Eaton said. "Great teammate, and I hope I can be half the player he is. I always remember when he was with the Phillies, running into that wall backwards, and I hope I can bring the same type of mental and physical edge that he did."

• Venerable White Sox television play-by-play announcer Ken 'Hawk' Harrelson praised Hahn for his offseason work. And Harrelson believes Hahn isn't finished.

"There's a couple of other moves he wants to make, that he's going to try to make, and he might make 'em," Harrelson said. "And if he does, it would be unbelievable."
