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.
Abreu went 3-for-4 in Monday's 4-3 loss to the Royals.
Abreu played for the first time after missing 19 games due to an abdomen injury. The DL stint, his first significant absence in five MLB seasons, likely puts an end to his quest for MLB history, as Abreu was attempting to join Albert Pujols and Joe Dimaggio as the only major leaguers with at least 25 home runs and 100 RBI in five straight seasons to start their respective careers.
