Jose Abreu homered in his third straight game Tuesday, leading the White Sox to a lopsided 9-1 victory over the Phillies.

Abreu finished 2-for-3 with three RBI in the game, knocking an RBI single in the third inning before blasting a two-run homer in the fifth. After a largely pedestrian season, Abreu is lighting it up in the month of August, hitting .373 with six homers, 14 RBI and 13 runs scored. The good month has his overall line up to .285/.341/.455 with 17 home runs, 70 RBI and 48 runs scored.
Aug 23 - 11:22 PM

Jose Abreu went 2-for-3 with a home run and two runs scored in Saturday's win over the Athletics.

Abreu connected on a Ross Detwiler pitch in the first inning for a solo dong, and he later doubled and scored. The homer was just his 15th of the year, giving him 66 RBI and 45 runs scored on the year. His rate stats are decent -- Abreu is batting .283/.338/.443 overall -- but the first baseman has been one of the biggest fantasy disappointments this year after being a fringe first-rounder in March.
Aug 20 - 10:46 PM

Jose Abreu went 2-for-4 with an RBI double and two total RBI in Sunday's loss to the Marlins.

Abreu came through with a pair of run-scoring hits on the afternoon, picking up an RBI single in the first inning and later notching an RBI double in the sixth. This season, the 29-year-old first baseman is slashing .282/.335/.438 with 14 homers and 65 RBI over 454 at-bats. His power might has dropped noticeably after he combined to hit 66 home runs over his first two major league seasons, but he has been hitting hot of late and is a name to consider in DFS formats so long as he keeps taking to the August heat.
Aug 14 - 4:40 PM

Jose Abreu went 2-for-5 with an RBI single in a win over the Marlins on Friday.

Abreu’s hot hitting continues. He’s now batting .395 (17-for-43) with three homers, two doubles, and six RBI through 10 games this month. He has hit safely in all but one of them.
Aug 12 - 11:11 PM

Jose Abreu went 3-for-4 with a double and a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Orioles.

Abreu essentially was the White Sox offense on Sunday, but it wasn't nearly enough with James Shields lighting the field aflame via eight runs allowed in 1 1/3 innings. His solo home run in the sixth merely drew the White Sox to within 10-2, a score which would stand as the final. For the season, the slugger is hitting .275/.333/.438 with 14 homers and 60 RBI. While this has been a down season for Abreu, his bat has shown signs of life in August. He has homered in three of his last four games.
Aug 7 - 6:57 PM

Jose Abreu homered for the second consecutive game on Friday, but it wasn't enough to lead the White Sox past the Orioles.

Abreu had gone 32 games without a home run before launching a bomb off of Jordan Zimmermann on Thursday, and he followed that up with another towering blast against Yovani Gallardo on Friday, this one getting the White Sox on the board in the fourth inning. He also singled twice, finishing the night 3-for-5 to raise his season slash to .273/.330/.429 to go with 13 homers and 59 RBI.
Aug 5 - 11:42 PM

Jose Abreu hit his 12th homer and walked Thursday against the Tigers.

Abreu had gone 32 games since his previous homer on June 23. He's kept his average respectably throughout, but he certainly hasn't been the fantasy first baseman he was in his first two seasons.
Aug 4 - 4:43 PM

Jose Abreu cracked two doubles in four at-bats versus the Angels on Saturday.

Abreu is sitting at .272/.327/.433 with 11 home runs, 33 runs and 52 RBI. Those numbers are barely above league average, certainly not what his owners were expecting from their slugging first baseman. He hit 30 or more homers in each of his two seasons since defecting from Cuba. He needs to pick up the pace in a hurry if he is going to do it this year.
Jul 16 - 11:46 PM

Jose Abreu (leg) returned to the starting lineup Saturday against the the Blue Jays.

Abreu sat out Friday's game due to leg fatigue, but it's not a major concern. After a slow start to the season, the slugger is batting .333 with five homers and 20 RBI this month.
Jun 25 - 4:14 PM

Jose Abreu is not in the White Sox' lineup Friday due to leg fatigue.

It will only be a one-day absence, as Abreu is expected back in there Saturday. Todd Frazier will play first base and Tyler Saladino is at third on Friday.
Jun 24 - 4:36 PM

Jose Abreu went 2-for-4 and hit a three-run homer against the Red Sox on Thursday.

Abreu is hitting .333 with five homers, seven doubles and 20 RBI in 20 games this month. There's a good chance he's a top-five first baseman the rest of the way.
Jun 23 - 6:05 PM

Jose Abreu finished 2-for-5, and his two-run double in the 10th inning led the White Sox to a 3-1 win over the Red Sox on Monday.

Abreu and Red Sox closer Craig Kimbrel clashed with two on and two outs in the top of the 10th inning, and the first baseman was down to his last strike before lacing a double to the right-center gap on a 99 mph fastball. It was the most recent in a series of signs that the 29-year-old is turning it around at the dish, as he's now batting .348 with six doubles, four home runs and 17 RBI this month. Abreu is hitting .267/.325/.440 overall.
Jun 20 - 11:39 PM

Jose Abreu went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run in Saturday's loss to the Indians.

Abreu's two-run dong off Indians starter Danny Salazar in the sixth inning was his third in his last six games. After a slow start to the year, the 29-year-old is now hitting .357 with four homers, 14 RBI and eight runs scored in June. The strong few weeks has his overall line up to .266/.325/.437.
Jun 19 - 12:02 AM

Jose Abreu went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Royals.

Abreu took Yordano Ventura yard for the solo shot in the sixth inning. The White Sox did not have an extra-base hit outside of that dinger. The 2016 season has been something of a disappointment for Abreu, who is hitting .260/.315/.415 with 12 doubles, eight homers and 34 RBI over 246 at-bats.
