Latest Update Jose Abreu goes 4-for-6 over both games Saturday Sun Aug, 31, 05:11 AM
Has an explosive bat and is pretty much a complete hitter, blessed with both great power and bat control. Is a natural run-producer who displays great presence at the dish.
Flaws: : Must always keep his weight in check in order to be useful with the glove at first base, and also to avoid injury. Also needs to make sure he can make the proper adjustments.
Over his last seven games Abreu has been on fire, going 14-for-25 (.560 BA) with three doubles, four RBI, four runs scored and five walks. He now sitting just two RBI away from going over the 100 RBI mark while sitting just one home run off the league leader (Nelson Cruz). Fantasy owners should continue to see great numbers from Abreu down the stretch even if he doesn't pick up the pace in the home run department (only 4 HR over last 146 AB).Analyst: Matthew Beck
Abreu is the hands down rookie of the year winner for the AL hitting .316 with 70 runs, 33 home runs and 97 RBI this season.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
It's a scary moment for fantasy owners, but the White Sox's slugger appears to be fine. We'll have to see how it feels later in the game, but it doesn't appear to be a significant issue.Analyst: Ben Diamond
Abreu is now slashing .312/.371/.602 with 33 home runs and 96 RBI over 455 at-bats in his rookie campaign as he continues to dominate in the middle of the White Sox lineup. Although his home run stroke as cooled off since returning from the All-Star break (only 4 HR over last 133 AB), he has managed to stay very productive elsewhere, hitting .361 over that stretch. He remains not only the front-runner for the American League Rookie of the Year but is in line to receive much consideration in MVP talks as well. Analyst: Matthew Beck
