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.

|(5/18/15) White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu is cruising along again this season and has nearly brought his average back up to .300 on the year. After dropping down to .267 early in May, Abreu has slowly worked his way back up to .295 with a .496 slugging percentage and a .368 on-base.
Abreu has six home runs and 22 RBI in 129 at-bats this season.
White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu out of the lineup on Wednesday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/13/15) White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu is out of the starting lineup for the first time this season on Wednesday, the team announced.
Abreu will be replaced by Adam LaRoche at first with Melky Cabrera taking the third slot in the batting order.
"I would prefer to continue to play, stay in the lineup, but Robin made the decision to give me the day off," Abreu said through an interpreter. "I have to be ready just in case the team needs to me for an at-bat or something."
Abreu is hitting .288 with six home runs and 20 RBI in 118 at-bats this season. The White Sox are currently the underdogs (+110) against Milwaukee.
DH Adam LaRoche out of White Sox lineup Monday in Milwaukee
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(5/11/15) With the White Sox beginning an interleague series Monday in Milwaukee, designated hitter Adam LaRoche is out of the lineup with Jose Abreu returning to first base.
LaRoche had played first in Saturday's and Sunday's interleague game against the Reds, but Abreu had DH'd in the American League park.
It has been previously reported that the White Sox have considered moving Abreu to third base for interleague games with no DH, in order to keep both he and LaRoche in the lineup.
White Sox 1B Jose Abreu launches 441-foot home run on Saturday
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(5/9/15) White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu connected for a 441-foot home run in a loss to the Reds in Game 1 of their doubleheader Saturday.
The bomb was Abreu's fifth of the season and first since April 22.
|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.
