Jose Abreu's solo home run in the third inning was the only run to score in Friday's 1-0 win over the Orioles.
The homer was Abreu's 14th of the season. Given how thoroughly he dominated in his rookie season, it's easy to shrug off Abreu's 2015 campaign as a disappointment, but the production's been there. Just to a less Godzilla-esque degree. Abreu's slashing .291/.341/.495 with 14 homers and 44 RBI this season. Jul 3 - 11:17 PM

Jose Abreu went 2-for-5 with an RBI single in a win over the Cardinals on Tuesday.

Abreu's run-scoring single got the White Sox on the board in the third inning. Runs batted in have been hard to come by for Abreu of late, as Tuesday's was just his second since June 13. The first baseman is hitting .293/.344/.493 with 13 homers, 42 RBI and 43 runs scored on the season.
Jun 30 - 11:57 PM

Jose Abreu is batting second for the White Sox in Saturday's game against the Tigers.

There's no real downside to moving Abreu up in the order, and there's a chance that it could wind up in him getting an extra at-bat in the ballgame, though his RBI chances could take a small hit. The 28-year-old slugger is hitting .290/.341/.493 with 13 homers and 41 RBI on the season.

Jose Abreu finished 4-for-5 with two runs scored as the White Sox bested the Twins 6-2 on Tuesday.

Abreu ended the evening with three singles and a double as the White Sox banged out 15 hits in total. That he didn't drive any runners in was a surprise, but the first baseman scored runs in the seventh and ninth innings to help the cause. The strong performance extended his hitting streak to eight games and gave him a nice round .300/.350/.500 line with 12 homers, 40 RBI and 39 runs scored on the year.
Jun 23 - 11:29 PM

Jose Abreu swatted his 12th home run of the season, but it wasn't enough for the White Sox to overcome the Rays on Friday.

Abreu finished the night 2-for-4. His two-run shot off Brandon Gomes in the seventh inning pulled the White Sox to within a run at 6-5, but that would be as close as they'd get. His power has begun to come on strong after a slow start to the season, as he's now hitting .291/.345/.514 with 12 long balls and 39 RBI.
Jun 12 - 10:45 PM

Jose Abreu went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in a second straight game Wednesday against the Astros.

Abreu hasn't exactly struggled this year, but he's yet to explode. Maybe that's coming now. He has three homers in eight games this month after hitting three in 27 games in May.
Jun 10 - 11:37 PM

Jose Abreu went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in a win over the Astros on Tuesday.

Abreu took Dallas Keuchel deep with a runner on in the sixth inning to break a scoreless tie. He also singled and scored a run in the eighth inning to extend the lead. The first baseman is hitting .279/.336/.486 with 10 homers, 35 RBI and 30 runs scored, but fantasy owners were surely hoping for a bit more from Abreu after his sensational rookie campaign.
Jun 10 - 12:53 AM

Jose Abreu went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and an RBI single as the White Sox trampled the Rangers on Wednesday.

Abreu capped off a six-run second inning for the White Sox when he took Nick Martinez deep to center field. He added an RBI single in the fourth inning to make it 7-0. Abreu hadn't played since May 29 due to irritation in his right index finger, but showed no signs of rust. He's batting .286/.343/.497 with nine home runs and 32 RBI on the season.
Jun 3 - 11:16 PM

Jose Abreu (finger) is back in the White Sox starting lineup Wednesday versus the Rangers.

Abreu missed several games with lingering irritation in his right index finger. It's something that might continue to bother him off and on for the rest of the summer, but the 28-year-old slugger should still remain a fantasy monster. Abreu is batting third and serving as Chicago's designated hitter in his return to action Wednesday night at Globe Life Park.
Jun 3 - 4:54 PM

Jose Abreu (finger) is not in the White Sox starting lineup Tuesday night against the Rangers.

Abreu hasn't played since leaving Friday's game against the Astros with irritation in his right index finger. It's something that has bothered Abreu off and on over the first two months of the 2015 regular season. He'll aim to return to action on Wednesday.
Jun 2 - 4:44 PM

Jose Abreu (finger) expects to return to the White Sox lineup on Tuesday.

He left Friday's game after aggravating an existing finger injury, and sat out the remainder of the weekend as a precautionary measure. He'll have an extra day to rest with Monday's off-day before returning to the lineup.
May 31 - 8:51 PM

Jose Abreu (finger) remained out of the White Sox' lineup Sunday.

Abreu left Friday's game with irritation in his right index finger and has now missed two straight starts. The White Sox are off Monday, so perhaps he'll be ready to go Tuesday after three days of rest. Adam LaRoche is at first base, Cole Gillespie is in the designated hitter spot and Gordon Beckham is at third base while Abreu sits.
May 31 - 11:46 AM

Jose Abreu (finger) is not in the White Sox starting lineup Saturday against the Astros.

Abreu left Friday's game with irritation in his right index finger. It's something that has been lingering for a couple of weeks, but he could return Sunday.
May 30 - 12:51 PM

Jose Abreu (finger) is unlikely to play on Saturday.

The 28-year-old slugger was removed from Friday's game due to irritation in his right index finger and was sent for X-rays. Abreu initially sustained the injury two weeks ago during a game in Chicago and it has continued to bother him off and on since. Be sure to check the White Sox lineup before game time, but it would be surprising to see Abreu in there on Saturday.
May 30 - 9:53 AM

Jose Abreu was forced to leave Friday's game against the Astros due to irritation in his right index finger.

It's an issue that cropped up earlier in the season as well for Abreu, causing him to depart from a game mid at-bat when he had difficulty gripping the bat. The injury doesn't appear to be very serious though, so consider the slugger day-to-day.
