Adam Eaton out Sunday after birth of child

The Chicago White Sox placed outfielder Adam Eaton on the paternity list Sunday and recalled right-handed pitcher Michael Ynoa from Double-A Birmingham.

The White Sox announced earlier Sunday that Eaton's wife, Katie, gave birth to the couple's first child -- a boy, Brayden, who weighed 7 pounds, 1 ounce. Eaton left the team Saturday to be with his wife.

Manager Robin Ventura said he expects Eaton to join the White Sox on their trip to Minnesota on Sunday. The White Sox play the Twins in their home opener Monday.

Eaton has been hot to start the 2016 season, leading the White Sox in batting average (.450), hits (nine) and on-base percentage (.500).

Ynoa has yet to pitch in the majors and threw one scoreless inning in Double-A. He went 0-2 with a 2.61 ERA, six saves and 40 strikeouts in 38 innings with Class A Winston-Salem last season. The White Sox acquired Ynoa from Oakland in 2014.
