Angels release former Miami RedHawks outfielder

The Los Angeles Angels announced Monday that they released former Miami University RedHawks standout Adam Eaton. Eaton was designated for assignment last week.

Last month, the Angels announced that they signed Eaton to a Major League contract, two days after he was released by the Chicago White Sox.

Eaton was designated for assignment to make room on the White Sox's roster for former Loveland High School standout Adam Engel, who was activated from the 10-day injured list.

Los Angeles Angels right fielder Adam Eaton (9) hits a sacrifice RBI against the Colorado Rockies during the eighth inning at Angel Stadium on July 26.

Eaton, 32, returned from the IL last month after missing time with a hamstring injury.

Eaton also played for the White Sox from 2014 to 2016. He played for the Washington Nationals from 2017 to 2020.

In Oct. 2019, Eaton became the first former MU player to get a hit in a World Series.
