White Sox 1B Jose Abreu finishes a homer shy of the cycle
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/27/15) Jose Abreu was the hero for the White Sox in their extra-inning victory over the Blue Jays on Wednesday. Abreu initially gave the team an early 2-0 lead with a two-run double in the third inning.
Then, after the Blue Jays tied the game in the ninth, Abreu tripled and later scored in the 10th inning, helping to secure the 5-3 win. He finished a home run shy of the cycle, finishing with a three-hit performance.
Though his 17-game hitting streak recently came to an end, Abreu hasn't stopped hitting. He has now hit safely in 20 of his last 22 games, lifting his average up to .284 on the year.

White Sox 1B Jose Abreu pushes hit streak to AL-best 15 games
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(5/21/15) White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu pushed his hitting streak to 15 games with a 1-for-4 performance Wednesday against the Indians. It is now the longest hitting streak in the AL this season, besting Shin-Soo Choo by one game.
Abreu is batting .328 (19 for 58) with one home run, two doubles, seven RBI, 12 runs, six walks and 13 strikeouts during his hitting streak.
Abreu's batting average has climbed from .268 to .293 during his hitting streak. However, his slugging percentage has actually declined from .537 to .486.
|2014 summary: We knew to expect some serious power from Jose Abreu, based on what he had accomplished in Cuba, but we couldn't be entirely sure what type of hitter he'd be overall with the White Sox. With one season in the books, there's still some mystery around Abreu. Initially, he looked to be an impatient hitter with poor plate discipline, but Abreu dramatically improved his walk-to-strikeout ratio in the second half. That progress really accelerated over the last two months of the season, and he also started hitting the opposite way more often, though for less power. The latter version of Abreu was less than elite in terms of Fantasy production, though he was still a top 10 first baseman. The two sides of Abreu combined to hit .317 with 36 home runs and 107 RBI.|
Playing time status: Abreu missed 14 games with an ankle injury, but he was otherwise durable, and owners can expect him to log regular playing time in 2015.
2015 outlook: Whether or not Abreu is worthy of a pick in the first round will rest on whether he can reproduce his first-half power numbers. He may need to make adjustments, but he's shown he has tremendous power skills. Even the second-half version of Abreu is worth an early-round pick, and the prudent move is to wait until the second round, rather than go all-in on expecting a full power recovery.
