José Abreu News
Chicago White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu reached base three times Tuesday night, going 2-for-3 with a home run, a walk, and two runs scored. It was Abreu's 15th home run of the season. Abreu has been a big reason for Chicago's late-season playoff push, slashing .363/.426/.434 over his past 30 games, though this is his first long ball since August 3. He's hit safely in 16 of his last 17 games and has an .843 OPS with 79 runs scored and 67 RBI for the season.
Chicago White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu went deep Sunday, contributing to a 4-1 victory over the Oakland Athletics. Abreu was 2-for-4 in the game, and now has 12 round-trippers on the season, to go with 54 runs score, 49 RBI, and an .852 OPS in 425 plate appearances. He has been especially good over his last 30 games, slashing .379/.430/.552 in 125 at-bats. Abreu is well on his way to yet another solid campaign, solidifying once again his place as one of the most consistent fantasy options in the league.
Chicago White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu had his best month of the season thus far in June. He slashed 346/.431/.533 across the month and closed out his strong month with a 4-for-4 effort against the Los Angeles Angels this past Wednesday. Abreu had a .656 OPS in April, followed by a .796 OPS in May. His .964 OPS in June was fueled by a 41.3% ground ball rate (down from 51.2% in May) and a 1.0 K/BB ratio (up from 0.88 in May). The 35-year-old isn't supplying a ton of power yet this year as he has just nine homers over 72 games, but the rest of his profile is right where fantasy managers would like to see him at.
Not many people had Chicago White Sox first basemanJose Abreu as their pick for the 2020 American League MVP award, but he certainly earned it, hitting .317 with 19 homers and 60 RBI in the 60 games the White Sox played. But where does this put him for 2021? Abreu has always fared better in the warmest months -- a career .413 wOBA in August compared to .354 in March/April -- so that might explain some of his red-hot 60 games during the shortened season. He has also had massive RBI luck the last two seasons, averaging an RBI for every 1.4 of his hits (the league average is 1.98). The career-high batting average in 2020 also appears to have been aided by luck, as he also posted career-worsts in strikeout rate (22.5%) and contact rate (71.1%). First base remains a shallow position in 2021, but chasing an MVP season from a 34-year-old seems like a poor use of a high draft pick. Let someone else pay the premium on Abreu.
