For the first time in five seasons in affiliated baseball, Abreu fell short of 25 homers and 100 RBI, but he still put together a nice season and will be rewarded with a $3 million pay increase in his final year of arbitration. Abreu is set to remain the primary first baseman in 2019 with Yonder Alonso expected to see most of his time at DH, and projects to remain the three hole hitter.
Abreu (infection) has been ruled out for the remainder of the season, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
With less than a week left in the regular season and the White Sox well out of playoff contention, the team opted to shut down the stud first baseman. Abreu played just six games over the final month and a half of the season due to multiple injuries, preventing him from reaching 25 homers and 100 RBI for the first time in his five-year career. He should be ready to go by the start of spring training.
Abreu (infection) could be done for the season, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
Manager Rick Renteria stated he's not sure if Abreu will play again this year, given the significant recovery process that the 31-year-old is facing. With the White Sox out of playoff contention, there's a good chance Abreu will be held out as a precaution.
Abreu (infection) remains out of the lineup Friday against the Cubs.
Abreu has been out since Tuesday after being hospitalized with an infection on his right thigh. He was released from the hospital Wednesday but is not yet ready to return to the field. Matt Davidson will start at first base in his absence.
Abreu was hospitalized with an infection on his right thigh Tuesday and is expected to miss Chicago's series in Cleveland, which runs through Thursday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Abreu is considered day-to-day but it sounds as though he'll miss at least a few games. Matt Davidson starts at first base in his place Tuesday and is the most likely candidate for an expanded role while Abreu remains out.
