Jose Abreu went 3-for-4 with two doubles and a run scored in Tuesday's loss to the Indians.
Somewhat amazingly, the three-hit game was Abreu's first in 2016. It's indicative of the kind of year the 29-year-old has had through the first few months, as his good evening raised his line to a still-pedestrian .247/.317/.407. Perhaps a good night at the dish will get him rolling. May 24 - 11:24 PM

Jose Abreu went 0-for-4 in the nightcap and 1-for-9 overall in Monday's doubleheader against the Indians.

Abreu was dropped to the fifth spot in the lineup today, even though he entered the day with a decent .260/.337/.452 line in May (compared to .229/.303/.354 in April). He's surely better than this, but his value takes a hit for however long he hits fifth.

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

It's a regular day off for the first baseman. Jerry Sands is filling in for Abreu. Avisail Garcia is also on the bench, as the White Sox have Jimmy Rollins in the designated hitter spot and Carlos Sanchez at shortstop.

Jose Abreu slugged a solo homer Friday against the Twins.

Abreu was also hit by a pitch in the eighth inning, which led to some jawing with Trevor May and the benches clearing. Fortunately, cooler heads prevailed. Abreu continues to show signs of life after getting off to a slow start. He has two homers in his last three games and is hitting .366 (15-for-41) over his last 10 games.
May 6 - 11:59 PM

Jose Abreu went 2-for-3 with a double, triple and three RBI as the White Sox bested the Red Sox 4-1 on Tuesday.

Abreu had an RBI triple, his first triple of the year, in the first inning to get the Sox on the board. He then capped the scoring in the eighth with a two-run double. Abreu has a seven-game hitting streak during which he has six multi-hit games. After an ugly start, his season line is up to .252/.331/.398.
May 3 - 11:52 PM

Jose Abreu went 2-for-5 with two RBI, including the game-winner in the ninth, as the White Sox outlasted the Orioles 8-7 on Saturday.

Abreu had an RBI single in the eighth to help the Sox stage a comeback, and it was his two-out RBI hit in the ninth that gave them the win. Abreu's sluggish start had some concerned, but the first baseman has multi-hit games in four of his last five contests to raise his average to .229. The power is still notably absent -- he's hit just three homers, and none since April 19 -- but there's no reason for alarm just yet, especially in light of the recent improvements.
Apr 30 - 11:40 PM

Jose Abreu hit a walk-off single in the 11th inning to top the Rangers 4-3 on Saturday.

Abreu was 0-for-5 when he came up with the bases loaded and one out in the 11th inning. Against a drawn-in infield, Abreu pulled a ground ball past third baseman Adrian Beltre to plate the winner. If anybody needed a morale boost it's the 29-year-old, who is hitting just .179/.260/.328 and is currently mired in a 3-for-36 slump. This is the part where we remind you that it's April 23 and the slugger will be just fine. Have patience.
Apr 23 - 7:46 PM

Jose Abreu hit his third home run of the season in Tuesday's win over the Angels.

Abreu finished the game 1-for-4 with the solo blast. He's been in a bit of a slump at the plate in recent games, going 4-for-29 without a multi-hit game in his last eight contests, but Abreu is too good of a hitter to be held down for long. The first baseman is batting .220/.322/.420 overall.
Apr 19 - 11:41 PM

Jose Abreu had a two-run homer and a sac fly Thursday against the Athletics.

Abreu's homer gave the White Sox their only runs through eight innings. It's his first of the regular season after he hit five in 60 at-bats this spring.
Apr 7 - 6:57 PM

Jose Abreu hit his fifth homer and walked Friday in leading the White Sox to a 5-3 win over the Padres.

Abreu has hit .398 and slugged .746 in 59 at-bats. He figures to be one of the AL's most potent hitters this year, and he should get more help from his teammates than he did in 2015, though it'd still be nice if the White Sox had a quality No. 2 hitter to put in front of him. Abreu has driven in just two teammates all spring.
Apr 2 - 1:43 AM

Jose Abreu received a scheduled day off on Wednesday.

Abreu has fouled balls off his foot and his leg over the past two days, but he's said to be fine. The 29-year-old is one of the top fantasy first baseman after reaching 30 homers and 100 RBI in each of his first two seasons in the majors.
Mar 23 - 3:22 PM

Jose Abreu is not in the White Sox' lineup Sunday.

The White Sox are resting many of their regulars. Mike Olt will handle first base and Gordon Beckham is at third.

Jose Abreu drove in two runs Thursday against the Royals to top 100 for the second straight season.

Abreu on Wednesday became the third player to reach 30 homers in each of his first two seasons. Tonight, he became the 12th to drive in 100 runs in each of his first two seasons, joining Ted Williams, Joe DiMaggio, Albert Pujols and others. The last was Hideki Matsui in 2003-04.

Jose Abreu hit his 30th homer Wednesday against the Royals.

Technically, Abreu is just the third player ever to hit 30 homers in each of his first two big-league seasons, joining Albert Pujols and Ryan Braun. However, Jose Canseco, Mark McGwire and Giancarlo Stanton are among a few who would also join that list if we discounted partial first seasons. Regardless, it's still an impressive feat for the Cuban defector. He's also just one RBI away from 100.

Jose Abreu's RBI double proved to be the difference in Monday's win against the Tigers in the second game of a doubleheader.

Abreu padded the lead to 3-0 when he hit an RBI double in the third inning, but the Tigers would score twice in the bottom half of the frame, and the score would hold the rest of the way. The first baseman finished the night 1-for-4. Abreu has now hit consecutively in seven games and holds a .295/.353/.517 triple-slash line with 29 home runs and 96 RBI.
