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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Jun 27 - 1:00 PM

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.
