Jose Abreu homered twice and doubled against the Angels in a losing cause Tuesday.
That's 10 total bases for Abreu tonight. His teammates combined for four. Given the lack of much of anything around him this season, it's pretty amazing that Abreu has driven in 100 runs for the fourth straight year. He's even scored a career high 93 runs. He'd have a significantly higher profile elsewhere. Sep 26 - 11:31 PM

Jose Abreu went 1-for-4 with two RBI in a loss to the Royals on Saturday.

Abreu had an RBI single in the first inning and added an RBI groundout in the seventh, driving in both of the Sox's runs. The first baseman now has four consecutive 100-RBI seasons, and he's just the third player in MLB history -- along with Joe DiMaggio and Albert Pujols -- with four seasons of 100 RBI and 25 homers to begin their career. Abreu is hitting .304/.356/.548 through 150 games.

Jose Abreu went 4-for-5 with two RBI and three runs scored versus the Tigers on Thursday.

Abreu has three four-hit games in a week, and his average is up to .308, the highest it's been since the first week of the season. He's now five RBI away from the century mark.

Jose Abreu hit two homers on Sunday in a win over the Giants on Sunday.

The two homers come the day after Abreu hit for the cycle. Homer No.1 was a two-run shot off of Madison Bumgarner in the second, and his second homer was a solo shot off of Albert Suarez in the seventh. The White Sox are terrible, but Abreu has certainly been a silver lining, with a .910 OPS and 31 homers for Chicago on the year.

Jose Abreu hit for the cycle as the White Sox pounded the Giants 13-1 on Saturday.

Abreu told reporters before the game that he didn't get any sleep on Friday night with Hurricane Irma bearing down on his native Cuba, but he had a definite jump in his step once he took the field on the south side of Chicago. Abreu hit a solo homer in the bottom of the first inning, a double in the bottom of the third, a single in the bottom of the seventh, and a two-run triple in the bottom of the eighth. The 30-year-old slugger finished the night 4-for-5 with three RBI and three runs scored. It was the sixth cycle in the 117-year history of the White Sox.
Sep 9 - 10:09 PM

Jose Abreu (elbow) went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in his return to action Sunday against the Rays.

Abreu served as the designated hitter after missing three games with an elbow issue. He's now up to 27 homers and 82 RBI on the year to go along with a strong .301/.354/.540 batting line.
Sep 4 - 8:34 AM

Jose Abreu (elbow) remains out of the White Sox starting lineup on Saturday.

It will be the third straight game that he has missed with the injury. Matt Davidson is starting at first base and batting fourth against Chris Archer and the Rays on Saturday.
Sep 2 - 3:30 PM

Jose Abreu (elbow) is not in the White Sox lineup again on Friday.

Abreu tweaked his elbow on Wednesday, and missed Thursday's game as well. Matt Davidson will start again at first and hit cleanup.
Sep 1 - 2:44 PM

White Sox manager Rick Renteria told reporters Thursday morning that Jose Abreu tweaked his elbow on Wednesday night.

That's why Abreu is not in the starting lineup for Thursday afternoon's series finale against the Twins, though Renteria said the big slugger should be ready to play Friday night against the Rays. Matt Davidson is starting at first base and batting cleanup Thursday versus Minnesota.
Aug 31 - 11:52 AM

Jose Abreu is getting the day off Thursday.

Matt Davidson will start at first base and bat cleanup versus Twins right-hander Bartolo Colon. It's a routine breather for Abreu.
Aug 31 - 11:01 AM

Jose Abreu finished 4-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a walk against the White Sox on Tuesday.

Abreu is in the midst of a really nice season after a slow start, hitting .303/.357/.538 in 515 at-bats. If he falls short of a fourth straight 100-RBI season, it's only going to because the White Sox have surrounded him with so little talent. He might get there anyway; he needs 20 RBI with 32 games left.
Aug 29 - 11:50 PM

Jose Abreu went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Sunday's win over the Tigers.

The two-bagger was Abreu's 35th of the season, tying the career-high for doubles that he set during his rookie year back in 2014. He is slashing .297/.350/.534 with 26 homers and 78 RBI across 128 games this season. That triple-slash is almost identical to his career .299/.358/.519 mark. Consistency, thy name is Jose Abreu.
Aug 27 - 5:05 PM

Jose Abreu homered and reached base safely four times on Friday as the White Sox defeated the Tigers.

Abreu entered the night with terrific career numbers against Justin Verlander and crushed a solo homer in his first at-bat against him. He also singled, was intentionally walked twice and scored a pair of runs in the game. He's enjoying another terrific season offensively, slashing .298/.349/.536 with 26 bombs and 78 RBI on the season.
