White Sox's Jose Abreu: Shakes off hip injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu (hip) went 3-for-4 with two doubles, two RBI and two runs Tuesday in the White Sox's 8-4 win over the Tigers.

Abreu's right hip injury forced him to exit early in Monday's 5-1 loss, but the stinger ultimately wasn't too much of a concern, as he was back in the lineup a day later and came through with a strong showing at the dish. He'll start again at first base and bat third in Wednesday's series finale.

White Sox's Jose Abreu: Returns to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu (hip) is in the lineup Tuesday against the Tigers.

Abreu left Monday's contest with a stinger in his right hip, but he'll return to action Tuesday. Manager Rick Renteria didn't sound too concerned about the injury, and the first baseman should be available for the White Sox going forward.

White Sox's Jose Abreu: Team 'hopeful'
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Rick Renteria said after Monday's game that the stinging sensation in Abreu's left leg subsided and the White Sox are "hopeful," James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

The team will wait until Tuesday before checking to determine the full extent of the issue, but it's encouraging to hear Abreu was already feeling better immediately following the game. He was lifted in the eighth inning after stepping awkwardly on the first-base bag.

White Sox's Jose Abreu: Battling right hip soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu left Monday's game against the Tigers with right hip soreness. He will be re-evaluated Tuesday.

The 33-year-old appeared to be hobbled after landing awkwardly on first base and was ultimately lifted for a defensive replacement in Zack Collins. Abreu went 1-for-4 prior to exiting. His availability for the rest of the series is up in the air.

White Sox's Jose Abreu: Opens scoring with solo shot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 5-4 extra-inning loss to Cleveland.

Abreu launched his third homer of the season in the second inning against Cleveland starter Shane Bieber. The 33-year-old Abreu is hitting .250/.282/.426 with nine RBI and nine runs scored in 16 contests. He's gone just 4-for-24 in his last six games, striking out eight times in that span.

White Sox's Jose Abreu: Quiet outing against Milwaukee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu went 1-for-4 with three strikeouts in Thursday's loss against the Brewers.

Abreu has recorded just two hits -- both singles -- in 12 at-bats over the last three games. He recently ended a four-game hitting streak and has reached base in six of Chicago's last seven games, however, so he should remain a productive presence in the middle of the White Sox's lineup despite striking out in over 27 percent of his at-bats during that seven-game stretch.

White Sox's Jose Abreu: Socks second homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu went 2-for-5 with a home run and three RBI in Monday's 6-4 win over the Brewers.

With the White Sox down 4-2 in the seventh, Abreu took Corbin Burnes deep to tie the score. The veteran slugger hasn't been fazed by the unusual circumstances of the 2020 season, hitting .295 through his first 10 games with two homers and seven RBI.

White Sox's Jose Abreu: Collects three hits, homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu went 4-for-9 with two doubles, a home run, two RBI and two runs scored during Tuesday's doubleheader at Cleveland.

Abreu went 1-for-5 in the opening contest, with a double being his only notable contribution. However, he bounced back to record a solo home run -- which came against Adam Plutko -- and another double in the second game. While it was his first long ball of the season, Abreu has managed to record at least one hit in four of the team's first five games this season.

White Sox's Jose Abreu: Two hits Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu went 2-for-5 with a run scored in Saturday's 10-3 win over the Twins.

Abreu has been the primary source of run production in Chicago's offense, but the lineup is more stacked in 2020. Of the 15 runs scored in the first two games, only one has been driven in by Abreu. He's 2-for-9 (two singles) with a run and an RBI over the first two games.

White Sox's Jose Abreu: Optimistic for 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu believes the White Sox will be competing for a playoff spot in 2020, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Abreu has spent six seasons with the White Sox, who have finished no better than third (in 2019) in the AL Central and never made the playoffs during his tenure. After the development of young prospects into stars and offseason acquisitions, the expectations for the team are huge in 2020. "The expectations are high with this team, and every Sox fan should be excited because we have a good team,'' Abreu said. ''It's time for us to start competing and to be one of the teams fighting for a playoff spot." Abreu has been remarkably consistent over his first six MLB seasons and, thanks to a better supporting cast, jumped up to a career- and AL-high 123 RBI in 2019. He'll have an even stronger group surrounding him in 2020. Abreu will return as the starting first baseman and bat third with any number of reputable hitters to protect him in the batting order.

White Sox's Jose Abreu: Gets three-year deal with White Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu and the White Sox agreed to a three-year, $50 million contract Friday.

The veteran first baseman had previously accepted the team's one-year, $17.8 million qualifying offer, but the two sides agreed to tear that deal up and find a number that worked for both sides over a longer period. Abreu will make only slightly less than his original deal on an annual basis (though $4 million of the contract is deferred) but will remain in Chicago through the 2022 campaign. The White Sox will get a decent yearly value for a team leader who hit .284 with 33 homers last season, though some regression should be expected over the course of the contract, which covers Abreu's age-33 through age-35 seasons.

White Sox's Jose Abreu: Accepts qualifying offer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu accepted a qualifying offer from the White Sox on Thursday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

The 32-year-old will sign a one-year, $17.8 million contract with the White Sox. He'll avoid free agency, where he likely would have faced an uncertain market since he is entering his age-33 season. Abreu hit .284/.330/.503 with 33 home runs and 123 RBI last season.

Jose Abreu: Tendered qualifying offer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu was given a qualifying offer by the White Sox on Monday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

Abreu's decision on whether or not to accept the one-year, $17.8 million deal will be tougher than most players who were given the offer Monday, given that the market for a long-term deal for a first baseman heading into his age-33 season may not be too lucrative. The White Sox are now due to receive draft-pick compensation should Abreu sign elsewhere.

White Sox's Jose Abreu: Drives in two
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu went 3-for-5 with with two RBI and a run scored in Saturday's 5-3 win over Detroit.

Abreu's eighth-inning, two-run single was the game-winning hit and produced his 120th and 121st RBI, the most by a White Sox player since Magglio Ordonez had 135 in 2002. He padded his RBI lead in the AL with the two runs driven in and moved to the top of MLB, one ahead of Atlanta's Freddie Freeman.

White Sox's Jose Abreu: Goes yard in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu went 1-for-4 with a solo home run, two runs scored and a walk in Friday's 9-7 win over the Mariners.

Abreu opened the scoring with his homer off Yusei Kikuchi in the first inning. The first baseman would later score on Yoan Moncada's three-run double in the fourth. Abreu is batting .400 (10-for-25) over his last eight games, adding five homers, 12 RBI and eight runs scored in that span. The 32-year-old has 33 homers, 116 RBI and 76 runs scored in 145 games this year.

White Sox's Jose Abreu: Pads RBI lead
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu went 2-for-4 with a double, a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Wednesday's 8-6 loss to Kansas City.

The AL leader in RBI padded his lead Wednesday with the two RBI giving Abreu 114 for the season. He's driven in 25 runs over the last 21 games, never going more than two games without an RBI.

White Sox's Jose Abreu: Smashes solo homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and three walks in a 5-1 victory against the Angels on Sunday.

This was a great day for the on-base percentage, as Abreu reached base four times for the first time since he recorded four hits on Aug. 28. Abreu hasn't walked much this year (.331 on-base percentage), so three free passes in one contest is quite a lot for him. He is hitting .283 with 31 home runs, 112 RBI, 71 runs and two steals in 558 at-bats this season.

White Sox's Jose Abreu: Reaches 30-100 club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu went 1-for-1 with a home run and four RBI in Saturday's 8-7 loss to the Angels.

Abreu was also hit by pitches twice and had a sacrifice fly in the game. The home run was his 30th of the season, and he became the fourth White Sox player to record at least four seasons with 30 home runs and 100 RBI, joining Frank Thomas (eight times), Paul Konerko (five) and Magglio Ordonez (four). The four RBI vaulted him to the top of the AL with 111 runs driven in.

White Sox's Jose Abreu: Out of Thursday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu is not in Thursday's lineup against the Indians.

He is hitting .316 with one home run in 38 at-bats over his last 10 games. Zack Collins will start at first base and hit sixth.

White Sox's Jose Abreu: Smacks 29th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run Wednesday against the Indians.

Abreu took Nick Goody deep in the eighth inning to record his 29th homer of the season. It was his first long ball since Aug. 20, though it's his fifth multi-hit game in that 15-contest span. Now just one home run away from his fourth season with 30 dingers, Abreu is hitting .281/.323/.496 across 597 plate appearances.
