Abreu (illness) joined the White Sox in Houston ahead of the team's American League Divisional Series with the Astros, but he's uncertain to start in Game 1 on Thursday, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

Abreu was withheld from the lineup in Sunday's regular-season finale against the Tigers after experiencing flu-like symptoms, and the White Sox have relayed that multiple follow-up tests have determined the star first baseman isn't COVID-19 positive. While the 34-year-old's condition has seemingly improved since the weekend, the White Sox have yet to decide whether he'll be available for Game 1. On a positive note, Abreu doesn't look like he's in any real danger of missing out on a spot on the White Sox's ALDS roster.
