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 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.

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.
Jun 12 - 6:41 PM

Jose Abreu went 2-for-4 as the White Sox were silenced by Danny Duffy and the Royals on Saturday.

As a team the White Sox were only able to scratch out five singles on the afternoon, with Abreu recording two of them. He's now hitting .264/.320/.409 with seven homers and 33 RBI on the season.
Jun 11 - 4:50 PM

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

Abreu got his homer out of the way early, burning Justin Verlander for the solo shot with two outs in the first inning. The White Sox would score just one more run in the game as they fell to 29-28. Their fast April start is a fading memory. Abreu has mostly struggled this season and is slashing just .251/.310/.399 with seven homers and 30 RBI over 223 at-bats.
Jun 5 - 5:09 PM

Jose Abreu had a nice night at the dish in a losing effort against the Tigers on Friday, going 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI.

Abreu's run-scoring double in the sixth inning briefly pulled the White Sox to within a run at 3-2, but that would be as close as they would get. He has been a bit of a disappointment thus far in 2016, slashing just .247/.308/.386 with only six home runs and 29 RBI.
Jun 3 - 11:26 PM

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.
May 24 - 12:13 AM

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.
