White Sox's Jose Abreu: Missing series with ankle issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu will missing the White Sox's weekday series against the Twins due to left ankle inflammation but is expected to return over the weekend against the Yankees, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

Abreu has been involved in a pair of collisions over the last three days. He didn't miss a start after crashing into Hunter Dozier along the first base line Friday but will miss at least three this time around after sliding into home plate to score the winning run Sunday. X-rays were negative, but an MRI revealed inflammation serious enough that the White Sox have already ruled him out until Friday. Andrew Vaughn will get to spend some time at first base in his absence, opening up more starts in the outfield for players like Danny Mendick and Leury Garcia, who will occupy the corners Monday against the Twins.

White Sox's Jose Abreu: Day off Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Twins.

Abreu was involved in a scary collision with Hunter Dozier along the first base line Friday and exited the game, but he was right back in the lineup the next day and went 2-for-4 in both weekend games against the Royals. Given that he looked clearly healthy over the weekend, it appears as though his off day Monday is a routine one. Andrew Vaughn will start at first base in his absence, with Leury Garcia starting in left field.

White Sox's Jose Abreu: Aggressive, scores winning run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu went 2-for-4, was hit by a pitch and scored the winning run in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Royals.

Abreu, standing on third with two out and the game knotted in the bottom of the ninth inning, took off for home after after a Wade Davis pitch bounced a few feet away from catcher Cam Gallagher. He was ruled safe, beating Gallagher's dive, which was upheld on review. It was an indication that Abreu is feeling no ill effects from Friday's nasty collision with Hunter Dozier.

White Sox's Jose Abreu: Socks solo shot in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu went 2-for-4 with a home run in Saturday's loss against the Royals.

Abreu was involved in a nasty collision Friday but still got the start Saturday, and he responded by launching his eighth homer of the season -- off Mike Minor -- and hitting safely for the seventh time over his last eight contests. The slugging first baseman is hitting .333 with three homers and 14 RBI across 39 at-bats this month.

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

Abreu (face) is starting at first base and hitting fourth Saturday against the Royals, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

The first baseman had been pushing manager Tony La Russa to let him play Saturday following a nasty collision Friday and ultimately got his way.

White Sox's Jose Abreu: Lobbying to play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu (face) wants to start Saturday against the Royals but his status depends on a final medical evaluation, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

The first baseman has certainly recovered rapidly, given the nature of the injury. Should he play, Abreu enters an enticing matchup against lefty Mike Minor. If not Saturday, Abreu will return to the White Sox lineup Sunday.

White Sox's Jose Abreu: Managing facial bruise, laceration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu is considered day-to-day with a facial bruise and laceration after leaving the first game of Friday's doubleheader against the Royals. He tested negative for a concussion during the initial diagnosis.

The 34-year-old appears to have escaped serious injury after a hard collusion with Hunter Dozier during Friday's matinee. Abreu hasn't been ruled out but is unlikely to be available for the second game of the twin bill.

White Sox's Jose Abreu: Exits after collision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu was removed from the first game of Friday's doubleheader against the Royals after a collision with Hunter Dozier, Joel Goldberg of Bally Sports Kansas City reports.

Abreu was running down a popup from Dozier in between first base and home plate during the second inning, leading to a hard collision in the baseline. Both players remained down on the field for a few minutes before being removed from the contest. Abreu should be considered day-to-day and is likely unavailable for Friday's nightcap.

White Sox's Jose Abreu: Blasts sixth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in Tuesday's 9-0 rout of the Reds.

The reigning AL MVP led off the second inning by taking Jeff Hoffman deep to get the ball rolling on a big night for the White Sox offense. Abreu is displaying his usual power, slugging six homers and 22 RBI through 28 games, but his .214 batting average is a significant disappointment and more than 100 points lower than last year's effort.

White Sox's Jose Abreu: Scores run in opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu went 1-for-3 with a run scored in a 3-2 win over the Red Sox in the first game of Sunday's doubleheader.

Abreu has now hit in two games in a row and scored a run for the first time since April 8. It hasn't been a productive start of the year for the 2020 AL MVP, as he's barely hitting above the Mendoza Line and only has two multi-hit performances in 2021.

White Sox's Jose Abreu: Ends RBI drought
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI in Saturday's 7-4 loss to the Red Sox.

White Sox manager Tony La Russa switched Abreu (fourth) and Yoan Moncada (third) in the batting order from the spots they held all season, and the move paid off immediately. After Adam Eaton and Moncada walked in the first inning, Abreu plated Eaton with a double and Moncada came in on a groundout. Abreu had gone seven consecutive games without a run batted in.

White Sox's Jose Abreu: Hits second grand slam of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu went 1-for-4 with a grand slam and an additional RBI in Tuesday's 10-4 win over the Mariners.

Abreu had been pretty quiet all night, but he came up big late in the game when he sent a moonshot over the left-field fence for a grand slam to put the game out of reach as the White Sox went up 10-3 in the eighth. It was the 2020 MVP's second grand slam in six games, as eight of his nine RBI this season have come from the long ball. Abreu is still slashing just .208/.310/.458 through 29 plate appearances since he's been relatively quiet outside of his pair of round trippers.

White Sox's Jose Abreu: Hits granny Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu went 2-for-4 with a home run, four RBI and second run scored in Friday's 12-8 win over the Angels.

Abreu erased an early Angels lead in a loud way, going opposite field for a grand slam in the third inning, the 199th home run of slugger's career. He'll be expected to pick up some of the run production that was lost when Eloy Jimenez sustained a pectoral injury that will sideline him for multiple months.
