Jose Abreu went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Twins.
Abreu hit his solo tater off of Kyle Gibson in the fourth inning. It would be the only run that the White Sox managed to score in the game. The dinger was Abreu's seventh and pushed his RBI total to 23. While he's not hitting at the monstrous level that he was in 2014, he's still posting a rock-solid .282/.349/.474 slash-line.

Jose Abreu is not in the White Sox lineup Wednesday.

It's just a day off for the slugger. Adam LaRoche will start at first base and bat fifth for Chicago on Wednesday night against Brewers right-hander Jimmy Nelson.
May 13 - 4:19 PM

Jose Abreu finished 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in Wednesday's rout of the Indians.

Abreu socked a first-inning solo home run off Indians ace Corey Kluber that set the tone for a fun afternoon on the south side of Chicago. The Cuban slugger then added a two-run ground-rule double in the bottom of the third inning. He's batting .291/.328/.673 with five home runs and 12 RBI in 14 games this season.

Jose Abreu went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in a loss to the Indians on Tuesday.

Abreu took Indians starter Carlos Carrasco out to left in the first inning, the only run the club would put up against Carrasco. In the eighth, Abreu added an RBI single. The first baseman now has four homers and nine RBI, and he's hitting .275/.315/.608 through 13 games.

Jose Abreu was credited with an RBI triple in Sunday's loss to the Tigers.

It could have just as easily been ruled a single and a two-base error, as J.D. Martinez misplayed a ball in right field to allow Melky Cabrera to score and Abreu to end up at third. It's the big first baseman's first triple of the year and third of his career. He's driven in five runs over the last two days to push his RBI total to seven.

Jose Abreu blasted a grand slam home run on Saturday, helping to power the White Sox to a 12-3 victory over the Tigers in Detroit.

Abreu's slam came as part of a seven-run fourth inning that chased Tigers starter Anibal Sanchez. He would also add a single and a double in the rout, finishing the afternoon 3-for-6 with a pair of runs scored. He's now hitting .250/.302/.550 with three homers and six RBI on the young season.

White Sox manager Robin Ventura hasn't ruled out using Jose Abreu at third base during interleague games on the road.

Sticking Abreu at third would allow the White Sox to keep both he and Adam LaRoche in the lineup. Abreu has been taking grounders at the hot corner during batting practice. "I don’t know, but I’m going to try," Abreu said through a translator when asked if he’s confident enough to play third. "I will be prepared when the manager decides to put me in that position." Obviously, this is something to keep an eye on if you're in a league that requires just one game at a position to obtain eligibility. The White Sox' first interleague road series is in Milwaukee May 11-13.
Apr 15 - 9:20 AM

Jose Abreu hit his second home run of the season in a win over the Indians Tuesday.

Abreu took Nick Hagadone deep in the fifth inning for a solo shot. It was his only hit in four at-bats, and Abreu has just two homers and two RBI through the first week-plus. That will surely change, and likely soon.
Apr 14 - 10:33 PM

Jose Abreu homered for the White Sox's lone run Monday versus the Royals.

Abreu hit just one homer this spring, but since he batted .508 in 59 at-bats, we decided not to make much of it. He also drew a walk today. Left-handers, in particular, will probably pitch around him quite frequently this year.
Apr 6 - 7:23 PM

Jose Abreu went 2-for-4 with two runs scored in a win over the Mariners on Wednesday.

The two-hit afternoon actually lowered the first baseman's Cactus League average to a ridiculous .518. Abreu doubled off Mariners starter James Paxton and also singled in the game. The regular season can't get here soon enough for the red hot slugger.
Apr 1 - 7:30 PM

Jose Abreu went 4-for-4 with a pair of doubles and an RBI as the White Sox topped the Dodgers 2-1 in Cactus League action on Tuesday.

Abreu has been on an absolute tear all spring, hitting .519 (27-for-52) with a homer and eight RBI. It's scary to think that he could be even better than the .317/.383/.581 he slashed with 36 bombs and 107 RBI in his first season stateside in 2014. He shouldn't last past the middle of the first round in all fantasy drafts.
Mar 31 - 9:30 PM

Jose Abreu went 2-for-5 with a run scored as the White Sox fell to the Athletics 10-4 on Saturday.

Humorously enough, the 2-for-5 performance actually lowered Abreu's spring average to .479 (23-for-48), which shows just how well he's hit in the Cactus League. Both hits were singles, which has been emblematic of his spring -- 19 of his 23 hits are singles -- but the power should reveal itself on a frequent basis during the regular season. Abreu belted 36 home runs and knocked in 107 runs en route to winning the AL Rookie of the Year award last year.
Mar 28 - 7:55 PM

Jose Abreu singled three times in as many at-bats as the White Sox fell 9-6 to the Dodgers on Thursday.

Abreu hit his first spring home run on Tuesday, which might have given one the impression he was having a slow spring. That is certainly not the case, as Thursday's effort brings his Cactus League average up to .488 (21-for-43). The lack of power -- two doubles, one triple, one homer -- shouldn't be concerning unless it persists into May.
Mar 26 - 8:00 PM

Jose Abreu blasted his first Cactus League home run in a losing effort against the Rockies on Tuesday.

The reigning American Rookie of the Year launched a solo shot off Jairo Diaz in the fifth inning. While it was his first time leaving the yard, he has been hammering the ball all over the field in Cactus League play, hitting .459 (17-for-37) with seven RBI. He looks like a very strong pick in the opening round of fantasy drafts.
Mar 24 - 8:37 PM

Jose Abreu went 1-for-3 with a walk in Monday's 10-1 loss to the Padres.

Abreu extended his Cactus League hitting streak to nine games with an eighth-inning single. The slugger has been on fire this spring, now hitting .471 (16-for-34) with two doubles and a triple. He has yet to homer, though.
