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. Aug 29 - 12:57 AM

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.
Aug 21 - 1:40 AM

Jose Abreu went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Wednesday's loss to the Angels.

Abreu came into the game with seven hits in his last 12 at-bats, but he couldn't get the ball out of the infield against Jered Weaver and the Angel bullpen on Wednesday. With the 0-for-4, he's now hitting .295/.356/.508 with 22 home runs and 70 RBI. His numbers are down across the board from a year ago, though this says more about his monster 2014 season than it does about his fine efforts in 2015.
Aug 20 - 1:09 AM

Jose Abreu had three hits in four at-bats, including an RBI double, but the White Sox fell to the Angels on Tuesday.

Abreu chipped away at the Angels' 4-1 lead, knocking in a run with a double in the sixth inning, but the White Sox otherwise were not able to muster much offense. The 28-year-old has quietly put together a solid .297/.359/.513 line with 22 home runs and 70 RBI. Unfortunately, they're a shade behind last year's output, which helped him take home AL Rookie of the Year honors.
Aug 19 - 12:44 AM

Jose Abreu went 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI single in Saturday's loss to the Cubs.

Abreu notched his RBI single in the seventh inning. It drew the White Sox to within 6-3, but they wouldn't score again in the game. For the season, the Cuban import carries a .292/.351/.502 triple-slash with 21 home runs and 68 RBI. These numbers are nice, but the most impressive aspect of his season is his consistency. He has not gone more than three games without a hit at any point this season.
Aug 15 - 11:57 PM

Jose Abreu went 2-for-5 with a pair of solo home runs in Saturday's 7-6 loss to the Royals.

Abreu feasted on Royals starter Jeremy Guthrie, smacking a solo home run off him in the fourth inning and another in the sixth. Unfortunately for the White Sox, neither of these dingers came with runners on base. Abreu has been on an absolute power tear over his last 10 games, with five homers and three doubles in that span. He's hitting .296/.352/.516 with 21 home runs and 67 RBI this season. The numbers aren't quite as overwhelming as those he posted in his rookie season, but they're still very solid.
Aug 8 - 10:10 PM

Jose Abreu went 1-for-4 with an RBI double in Friday's loss to the Royals.

Abreu doubled home a run against Royals starter Edinson Volquez in the sixth inning, but he was otherwise held in check. For the season, he's hitting .295/.352/.503 with 19 homers and 65 RBI. The Cuban import has been hot of late, with four homers and four doubles in his last 10 games.
Aug 8 - 12:45 AM

Jose Abreu went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk, and a two-run home run in Monday's loss to the Rays.

Abreu tied the game up at 2-2 in the sixth inning when he drilled a two-run home run to center field off of Nate Karns. The first baseman has been on a power surge of late, homering five times in his last 11 games, giving him 19 on the year along with 64 RBI and a .299/.355/.510 triple-slash line.
Aug 4 - 12:04 AM

Jose Abreu launched a two-run homer Friday in a losing effort against the Yankees.

Abreu finished July with a flourish, batting .381 (16-for-42) with four home runs and 15 RBI over his last 11 games. He has hit safely in all of them. The 28-year-old is in a good situation in Chicago and it would be no surprise if he led the AL in homers over the final two months of the season.
Aug 1 - 1:44 AM

Jose Abreu went 3-for-5 with a home run and three RBI as the White Sox jumped on the Red Sox 9-4 on Tuesday.

Abreu had three of the team's 14 hits on the evening, hitting a two-run homer in the sixth before adding an RBI double in the eighth. The homer was his 16th of the year, giving him 56 RBI. The three-hit night extended his modest hitting streak to eight games while raising his overall line to .296/.349/.489.
Jul 28 - 10:44 PM

Jose Abreu went 2-for-5 with three RBI in Saturday's win over the Indians.

Abreu did his damage with a pair of RBI singles, the first a two-RBI base knock off Indians starter Carlos Carrasco in the first inning. He would notch the other single in the ninth inning, pushing the score to 9-3. Abreu's hitting .289/.339/.473 with 15 homers and 52 RBI this season. He's not going to match the 36 homers he hit last season unless he goes on an epic power surge, but it's been a nice sophomore campaign even without quite as many pyrotechnics.
Jul 25 - 10:13 PM

Jose Abreu slugged a solo homer Friday against the Indians.

Abreu also drew a walk and scored two runs. The home run was just his second of the month and his first since way back on July 3. He's obviously capable of much better going forward.
Jul 24 - 10:28 PM

White Sox manager Robin Ventura said Jose Abreu was given a day of rest on Sunday due to minor hand and leg issues.

The White Sox need him healthy and productive in the middle of the lineup, so giving him an additional day before the All-Star break isn't a bad idea. The 28-year-old slugger heads into the All-Star break slashing .296/.343/.492 with 14 homers and 46 RBI in 81 games.
Jul 12 - 10:05 PM

Jose Abreu is absent from the White Sox' lineup Sunday.

He's getting an extra day of rest prior to the All-Star break. Adam LaRoche is handling first base with Abreu out.
