May 18 - 2:00 AM

Jose Abreu went 2-for-4 and drilled a two-run homer in Saturday's loss to the Orioles.

The blast off Mychal Givens brought the White Sox to within a run in the eighth inning, but they would not score again. Abreu has heated up after a sluggish start, now batting .294/.342/.514 with five homers and 16 RBI in 117 plate appearances.
May 6 - 11:44 PM

Jose Abreu continued his hot-hitting in Friday's loss to the Orioles, going 3-for-5 with a double.

May 5 - 10:26 PM

May 4 - 5:46 PM

Jose Abreu crushed his first two homers of the 2017 season on Saturday, leading the White Sox to a 6-4 victory over the Tigers.

Abreu, who missed Friday's game with a right hip flexor/groin issue, tagged Tigers' starter Michael Fulmer for a solo shot in the third inning. He added a second solo homer off of Blaine Hardy in the eighth for what proved to be a valuable insurance run. He finished the afternoon 2-for-3 and is now hitting .269/.337/.410 with 10 RBI on the season.
Apr 29 - 4:50 PM

Jose Abreu (hip/groin) has returned to the White Sox starting lineup for Saturday afternoon's matchup against the Tigers.

Abreu is back in his customary cleanup spot in the lineup after missing Friday's game with a right hip flexor/groin issue. The 30-year-old slugger is hitting .253/.309/.350 with no homers and eight RBI through 81 plate appearances on the season.
Apr 29 - 11:06 AM

Jose Abreu (hip/groin) is not in the White Sox' lineup Friday.

Abreu had said he planned to play Friday after leaving Wednesday's game with a right hip flexor/groin issue, but the White Sox have decided to give him another day. Matt Davidson is at first base, Tyler Saladino is in the leadoff spot and Yolmer Sanchez is at second base.
Apr 28 - 4:03 PM

Jose Abreu (hip, groin) said he expects to play Friday against the Tigers.

Abreu left Wednesday's game against Kansas City with a flexor strain in his right hip but said he mostly feels pain in his upper groin. Either way, he should be ready to roll after the White Sox's off day on Thursday. Abreu has plated at least 100 runs in each of the last three seasons. He'll have to pick up the pace if he wants to make it four straight (.253, 0 HR, 8 RBI in 75 at-bats).
Apr 26 - 7:59 PM

Jose Abreu has been diagnosed with a mild right hip flexor strain.

Abreu took an awkward spill while trying to field a groundball in Wednesday afternoon's game against the Royals. A hip flexor strain is something that could send the first baseman to the 10-day disabled list, though the White Sox are calling him day-to-day for now. Todd Frazier moved from third base to first base on Wednesday with Tyler Saladino taking over at the hot corner.
Apr 26 - 3:49 PM

Jose Abreu was lifted from Wednesday's game against the Royals with an apparent leg injury.

Abreu did the splits and planted awkwardly with his right foot while trying to field a groundball in the top of the fifth inning. Todd Frazier shifted from third base to first base and Tyler Saladino took over at the hot corner for Chicago. There should be an update on Abreu within the hour.
Apr 26 - 3:37 PM

Jose Abreu went 3-for-4 with an RBI in a loss to the Yankees on Wednesday.

Two of the hits were doubles, including one in the fourth inning that plated Tim Anderson with the White Sox' only run of the lopsided contest. This was a badly-needed good game for the struggling clean-up hitter. The three hits got him back to the Mendoza line. He is batting .200/.241/.255 with zero home runs and six RBI in 58 plate appearances in the season's early days.
Apr 19 - 11:14 PM

Jose Abreu went 0-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts on Tuesday against the Yankees to drop his season batting line to .157/.204/.176.

Abreu struck out in his first two plate appearances against Luis Severino. Feeling overmatched, he then tried to bunt in the seventh inning with two on and no one out and popped the first pitch up to the catcher. That's how bad things are going for the White Sox' cleanup hitter. Abreu started out slowly last year, too, although it wasn't nearly to this level. Still, we think he'll ultimately be fine.
Apr 18 - 9:30 PM

Jose Abreu went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's Cactus League win over the Indians.

Abreu took Josh Tomlin deep with one out in the sixth inning for his second home run of the spring. He has been an incredibly consistent hitter since coming over from Cuba, boasting a .299/.360/.515 career triple-slash in three seasons.
Mar 25 - 7:08 PM

Jose Abreu went 1-for-2 with a double in Saturday's Cactus League loss to the Rangers.

The two-bagger was Abreu's second such hit of the spring. He was a late arrival to camp due to his having to testify in a federal trial. Over the course of his three years in the majors, he has proven to swing a consistent stick, having cracked at least 25 homers in each of those seasons. Each of those seasons also saw him post 100 RBI. The slugger owns a sturdy career triple-slash of .299/.360/.515.
