Jose Abreu drove in two runs Thursday against the Royals to top 100 for the second straight season.

Abreu on Wednesday became the third player to reach 30 homers in each of his first two seasons. Tonight, he became the 12th to drive in 100 runs in each of his first two seasons, joining Ted Williams, Joe DiMaggio, Albert Pujols and others. The last was Hideki Matsui in 2003-04.

Jose Abreu hit his 30th homer Wednesday against the Royals.

Technically, Abreu is just the third player ever to hit 30 homers in each of his first two big-league seasons, joining Albert Pujols and Ryan Braun. However, Jose Canseco, Mark McGwire and Giancarlo Stanton are among a few who would also join that list if we discounted partial first seasons. Regardless, it's still an impressive feat for the Cuban defector. He's also just one RBI away from 100.

Jose Abreu's RBI double proved to be the difference in Monday's win against the Tigers in the second game of a doubleheader.

Abreu padded the lead to 3-0 when he hit an RBI double in the third inning, but the Tigers would score twice in the bottom half of the frame, and the score would hold the rest of the way. The first baseman finished the night 1-for-4. Abreu has now hit consecutively in seven games and holds a .295/.353/.517 triple-slash line with 29 home runs and 96 RBI.

Jose Abreu had two hits, two RBI, and a walk in four plate appearances Sunday as the White Sox fell to the Indians.

Abreu breathed life into the White Sox offense, ripping a two-run single in the seventh inning to make it a 6-2 game, but by then, it was too little, too late. The first baseman is on a modest six-game hitting streak. On the season, Abreu is batting .297/.354/.520 with 29 home runs and 95 RBI.

Jose Abreu went 1-for-5 with a double in Saturday's win over the Indians.

The double would be Abreu's only hit of the game. He also struck out twice in the contest. For the season, the 28-year-old slugger is slashing .295/.351/.518 with 29 homers and 93 RBI. After hitting 35 doubles last season, he's up to 32 in 2015. Few hitters have been as consistent as Abreu during the current campaign.

Jose Abreu is not in the White Sox starting lineup Thursday afternoon against the A's.

Mike Olt will start at first base and Geovany Soto will serve as the designated hitter. Abreu is just getting a day of rest. He slugged his 29th home run of the season on Wednesday night and is slashing .355/.414/.661 in 70 plate appearances so far in September.

Jose Abreu went 3-for-6 with two walks, a two-run single, and a two-run home run in Monday's 14-inning victory over the Athletics.

Abreu hit the first of two two-run home runs in the third inning against Sonny Gray, putting the White Sox up 2-1 at the time. He tacked on a two-run single in the fourth to make it 5-2. The Pale Hose have underachieved, but it hasn't been Abreu's fault as he's batting .293/.348/.514 with 28 home runs and 90 RBI.

Jose Abreu went 0-for-4 in Sunday's loss to the Twins.

The White Sox finished the game with just five hits, as Twins starter Kyle Gibson just wasn't having any of it. None of those five knocks came off Abreu's bat. Indeed, he's 0-for-9 over the last two days. Mini-skid aside, the slugger still maintains a .290/.344/.508 triple-slash with 27 homers and 86 RBI.

Jose Abreu went 2-for-4 with a solo home run as the White Sox suffered a loss on Wednesday to the Indians.

Abreu hit the second of back-to-back solo home runs with Tyler Saladino in the sixth inning. He's gone yard in back-to-back ballgames and now sits with 27 on the season with 86 RBI and a terrific .295/.350/.519 triple-slash line. It's looking like he'll secure another 30-homer season.

Jose Abreu went 3-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Tigers.

Abreu hit a solo homer, his 26th of the year, in the third inning. He later chipped in an RBI single in the fifth and fell a triple shy of the elusive cycle. Abreu is somewhat quietly having another strong offensive season in Chicago's south side, batting .294/.349/.513 with 85 RBI and 83 runs scored in total.

Jose Abreu went 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles, a run scored and a walk in Thursday afternoon's win over the Twins.

Abreu's driven in 80 runs this season, but he left the RBI duties to his teammates in Thursday's tilt with the Twins. The two doubles gave him 30 for the season. He's now five off of the number he smacked last year. With a .292/.347/.506 triple-slash and 24 home runs, he's broken through the notion of a sophomore slump with flying colors.

Jose Abreu went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in Friday's loss to the Mariners.

The White Sox had only four hits as a team, so Abreu probably shouldn't feel too poorly about his off-game. He's slashing .294/.351/.513 with 24 homers and 78 RBI. There are hitters with better numbers, but the 28-year-old first baseman has been one of the most consistent bats in the game this season.

Jose Abreu went 2-for-4 with a double and a solo home run but the White Sox were defeated by the Red Sox on Monday.

Abreu gave the White Sox a briefly-held 1-0 lead with a solo home run in the first inning off of Joe Kelly. He'd add a double and score in the ninth inning, helping the White Sox attempt to overcome a three-run deficit. Abreu has homered in back-to-back games, giving him 24 on the season along with 78 RBI and a .295/.354/.519 triple-slash line.

Jose Abreu went 1-for-5 with a two-run double and three total RBI in Thursday's win over the Angels.

Abreu drove in the first run of the game with an RBI ground out in the opening frame, then notched a two-run double in the fifth to help chase Angels starter Nick Tropeano. The 28-year-old slugger has been the model of consistency this season, as he's hit at least .293 and slugged at least .515 in every month other than May. And even in May, he still slashed a perfectly OK .274/.336/.406. Overall, Abreu's humming along to the tune of a .294/.355/.507 batting line with 22 home runs and 70 RBI.
