Jose Abreu hit his 32nd home run of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Orioles.

The solo homer was the only run the Sox could manage against Orioles starter Chris Tillman on the night. It was also Abreu's only hit in four at-bats. The first baseman was due for a long ball, as he hadn't homered since July 29 before the first inning blast. Abreu has just seven RBI in 17 games this month, but that anomaly should correct itself soon.

Jose Abreu went 3-for-5 with a double and three RBI, leading the White Sox offense in an 11-5 thrashing of the Blue Jays on Friday.

Abreu got the scoring started with an RBI single in the first inning and delivered a two-run single as part of a five-run uprising in the fifth inning. The Cuban slugger has been outstanding in his first season stateside, slashing .304/.361/.600 with 31 homers and a league-leading 89 RBI.
Aug 16 - 12:07 AM

Jose Abreu went 0-for-5 with a run scored in Tuesday's 10-inning triumph over the Giants.

Abreu leads the American League with 31 homers but hasn't gone deep in a season-worst 13 straight games. The power outage, and his August struggles as a whole, came out of nowhere: The All-Star first baseman lost a 21-game hitting streak on August 2. Since that date, a span of 10 games, he's gone 7-for-36 (.194) with only one extra-base hit (a double). Maybe he can get his bat going again in the next few days in San Francisco. Abreu has at least one hit in 28 of 30 road games. He entered tonight batting .391 over his past 29 road contests with nine homers and 24 RBI.
Aug 13 - 2:10 AM

No virtuoso displays of power by Abreu on Friday, but the 3-for-3 night brought his average up to .310. His fourth inning RBI single off of Logan Darnell plated Adam Eaton and gave Abreu 84 RBI on the season. Abreu's slashing .310/.364/.639.
Aug 2 - 1:12 AM

Jose Abreu reached all five times up Thursday, going 3-for-3 with two doubles and a pair of intentional walks against the Tigers.

Jul 31 - 6:39 PM

Jose Abreu went 3-for-4, hitting a two-run home run and a two-run double in Tuesday's trampling of the Tigers.

In the eighth, Abreu doubled in a pair of runs to make it 11-2. As a result, Abreu now leads the big leagues in RBI with 83. Just for good measure, the Cuban rookie also has a fantastic .299/.349/.632 slash line.

Jose Abreu went 2-for-3 with an RBI double in Sunday's loss to the Twins.

Abreu continues his assault on American League pitching, racking up two more hits. He's now got 30 hits in 22 games this month, and he's currently working on a 17-game hitting streak. The first baseman is hitting .294/.344/.619 in his rookie campaign.
Jul 27 - 5:07 PM

Jose Abreu launched his 30th home run of the season on Friday, powering the White Sox to a 9-5 victory over the Twins in Minnesota.

The White Sox came out of the gate firing in this one, with a pair of singles to start the game followed by Abreu’s three-run blast off Kevin Correia. He finished the night 2-for-5 with three RBI and a pair of runs scored, and is now hitting .292/.341/.620 with 30 long balls and 77 RBI in his first 353 big league at-bats. He's easily the favorite to take home Rookie of the Year honors in the American League.
Jul 25 - 11:13 PM

Jose Abreu (back) went 1-for-4 with a double and a run scored Wednesday in his return to the lineup.

Abreu was held out of Tuesday's game with stiffness in his back. It was never a major concern. The sensational rookie first baseman has a .959 OPS, 29 homers, and 74 RBI through his first 87 games as a major leaguer.
Jul 24 - 8:42 AM

Jose Abreu is out of the White Sox starting lineup on Tuesday night due to stiffness in his back.

White Sox manager Robin Ventura called the issue "minor." Paul Konerko is starting at first base on Tuesday versus the Royals. Abreu should be ready on Wednesday.
Jul 22 - 5:17 PM

Jose Abreu went 3-for-5 at the plate in Sunday's loss to the Indians.

Abreu hadn't been hitting for average for most of the season, but a 12-for-24 stretch to close out the first half means he'll go into the All-Star break hitting .292. Oh, and he's also on pace for 49 homers and 123 RBI.
Jul 13 - 4:11 PM

Jose Abreu slugged his 29th home run of the season Saturday as the White Sox beat the Indians 6-2.

Jul 12 - 6:26 PM

Jose Abreu doubled twice, singled, and drew a walk over five plate appearances in Tuesday's win over the Red Sox.

No home runs, disappointingly, but a productive night nonetheless for the slugger. He continues to be among the league's most fearsome hitters, slashing .281/.331/.619 with 27 home runs and 69 RBI. He is one home run and four RBI behind Nelson Cruz for the league lead in both categories.
Jul 8 - 10:34 PM

Jose Abreu collected his MLB-leading 27th home run in Friday's 7-1 win over the Mariners.

Abreu did so when he connected for a two-run shot off Roenis Elias in the fifth inning. The blast also tied him with Edwin Encarnacion for the AL lead with 69 RBI. If it wasn't for a brief stint on the disabled list, the rookie slugger likely would be over 30 home runs by now. He owns a robust .280/.330/.629 batting line on the year and is currently riding an 18-game hitting streak. Quite a first half.
