The White Sox cleared up some room for Adam Eaton by sending outfielder Jordan Danks down to Triple-A Charlotte.

Eaton is close to returning from the disabled list after a strained right oblique injury and is 3-for-10 in two games on a rehab stint with Charlotte.

Danks, 28, has a .190 average on the year in Chicago with two homers and nine RBI in 33 games this season.

The Sox called Danks up for the second time this year on Aug. 9 and he hit .289 with a homer and four RBI in 12 games.

Danks figures to be back up in the big leagues sometime next month with rosters expanding Sept. 1.
