by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu won the AL Rookie of the Year award unanimously, drawing all 30 first-place votes from the Baseball Writers Association of America. Abreu, 27, who defected from Cuba last offseason, batted .317/.383/.581 with 35 doubles, 36 homers and 107 RBI.

Abreu is the first White Sox player to win the award since shortstop Ozzie Guillen in 1985.

Agent claims Cuban slugger Tomas has 'a lot more' power than Abreu
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Phillies met Monday with the agent for Cuban slugger Yasmany Tomas, according to CSNPhilly.com. The two sides have been in talks since Tomas worked out for the Phillies in September.

"There are several teams that I could say are frontrunners, but yes (the Phillies are one of them)," Jay Alou said at the general managers' meetings Monday. "We continue to speak. I know they have things in-house they want to take care of. We’ve been talking. I respect (general manager) Ruben (Amaro Jr.) a lot and he respects me."

The Phillies are expected to make an offer for Tomas, but no formal offer has been made yet, according to Alou. The Padres, Tigers, Mets and Giants are some of the other teams showing interest in Tomas.

Tomas is a power-hitting corner outfielder. Alou said his client has "a lot more" power than White Sox slugger Jose Abreu, who hit 36 home runs as a rookie in 2014.

"With the way home runs are going, this is a guy who can hit 40," Alou said. "He can miss balls and hit them out. Tomas is a very impressive hitter. I represent Jose Bautista and he hits a lot of home runs. I’ve never seen a guy hit them as far (as Tomas)."

'Mental fatigue' contributes to Jose Abreu's second-half power decline
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

By most standards, White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu had a strong second half, batting .350 with a .513 sluging percentage after the All-Star break.

Though, while he hit for a higher average than in the first half (.292), Abreu saw a drop in home runs, belting just seven in the second half after having 29 before the break.

"It could be some fatigue, but I would say it was a mental fatigue," White Sox strength and conditioning coordinator Allen Thomas said, per the Chicago Sun-Times. "And the league knew him a little better in the second half. He still took singles and the opportunities to get hits, he just missed by a little bit."

Jose Abreu ties White Sox rookie record
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

After going three weeks without a home run, White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu homered for the second time in as many days Sunday against the Twins, finishing 2 for 4 with two RBI. The solo shot in the ninth inning gave him 35 on the season, tying the White Sox rookie record set by Ron Kittle in 1983.

"He's a good hitter so this isn't a surprise that he hit a home run,” manager Robin Ventura told ESPN.com. "He's been pretty consistent just as a hitter. The power's going to be there. He went through a little stretch where he wasn't hitting many home runs, but it's there."

In addition to the home runs, Abreu is also batting .322 on the season, including .354 since the beginning of June -- a span of 89 games.

"He's a better hitter than he is a power hitter and he's a heck of a power hitter too, so that’s the way I look at him," teammate Paul Konerko said. "He's not just a slugger."

Jose Abreu taters for first time in three weeks
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

So much for the power outage of White Sox slugger Jose Abreu. Abreu slammed a solo home run in the ninth inning Sunday that went for naught in a loss to Minnesota. It was his first since Aug. 22.

Abreu had already ripped a run-scoring single in the fourth inning as his stat line improved to .322/.384/.604 on the season.
