Abreu went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run during Thursday's win over Minnesota. The first baseman is locked into a nice groove at the dish with a .392/.429/.706 slash line, nine extra-base hits, 14 RBI and 12 runs through his past 12 games. Abreu is well on his way to posting his fourth consecutive 100-RBI campaign and is also on pace to return to the 30-bomb club.
Abreu went 4-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's 9-7 loss to the Twins. Abreu's been a run-producing machine these past two weeks, knocking in 13 runners while scoring 13 himself. During that stretch, he's gone 20-for-48 (.417) to raise his batting average above .300 for the first time since the first week of the season.
Abreu went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 5-2 win over Toronto. The homer was Abreu's first in 22 games. That's a pretty long gap for a player who averaged one long ball every five games entering the 2017 season, but with 11 homers in 66 games, he's not far off the pace. While going homerless for 21 games, Abreu did provide some returns for fantasy owners, hitting .301 (25-for-83) with 13 runs and 13 RBI.
Abreu (leg) is back in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Indians. He'll hit out of the No. 3 spot in the order after leaving Friday's game early when he was hit on the leg by a pitch. Abreu will draw a favorable matchup against Josh Tomlin, against whom he's gone 6-for-15 with a 1.171 OPS.
Abreu is feeling good and has reported minimal swelling after taking a hit-by-pitch off the leg Friday, CSN Chicago reports. According to manager Rick Renteria, the club considers Abreu day-to-day going forward. Considering an evaluation found nothing more than a bruise and his symptoms Friday night seemed minimal, it would be surprising if this kept Abreu out for multiple games.
