Third to first

• Adam Eaton went 2-for-5 with a double and scored a run in his first rehab game with Triple-A Charlotte on Saturday. Eaton, who is recovering from a strained right oblique, could join the White Sox as quickly as the start of the team's next homestand on Tuesday, but Ventura wants to see how he responds to playing again on Sunday before he makes a decision.

"You want him to be back as soon as possible, but you also want him to be ready," Ventura said.

• White Sox prospect Tim Anderson went 7-for-9 with two doubles, three runs and three RBIs in his first two games at Double-A Birmingham.
