|Jose Abreu slugs homer No. 28 |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(7/10/14) White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu moved back into a tie for first in the home run race Wednesday, as he clubbed his 28th homer of the season in a 5-4 loss to the Red Sox.
Abreu opened the game with a solo shot in the first inning, and ended up finishing the game 2 for 4 with one RBI and one run. It was his third home run in the last nine games, and gave him 28 for the season, to go with 70 RBI.
Abreu is hitting .284/.333/.627 in 306 at-bats through the first 78 games of his rookie season.
|As is often the case for Cuban defectors, what little we know about Jose Abreu comes in the form of vague scouting reports and watered-down statistics. But we at least know the White Sox liked him enough to give him the largest contract ever for an international player. On the one hand, it makes sense. He had a better track record in Cuba than either Yoenis Cespedes or Yasiel Puig, and look what they've done in the majors. But on the other hand, no scout is willing to call Abreu a sure thing, with some even questioning his bat speed. Of course, Cespedes and Puig had their skeptics as well. Just as a matter of principle, some people refuse to buy into the unknown. White Sox executive vice president Kenny Williams isn't one of them, praising Abreu's low-effort swing and ability to drive the ball the other way. A power hitter who some think could hit for average as well, Abreu is pretty much a lock to take over for Paul Konerko at first base this year, but since nobody really knows how he'll perform, he figures to be one of the more interesting picks on Draft Day. The range is anywhere from an early round Puig type to a fringy Dayan Viciedo type, making a middle-round pick in Mark Trumbo or Mark Teixeira territory about right.
