|(5/3/15) The White Sox are off to an 8-13 start to the season, but Jose Abreu came to the defense of manager Robin Ventura.
"If the people want someone to blame, it's the players. Not Robin," Abreu said, per the Chicago Sun Times.

|(5/3/15) The White Sox left two regulars out of the lineup on Sunday and moved another to DH to give him a day's rest from playing the field.
Catcher Tyler Flowers is out of the lineup. For the third time in five games, he'll be replaced by Geovany Soto, who will bat eighth in the order.
Third baseman Conor Gillaspie is also out of the starting lineup, for just the fifth time this year. He's replaced by Gordon Beckham, who'll bat seventh.
Jose Abreu moves from first base to DH, swapping positions with Adam LaRoche, who gets his third start of the year at first base.
White Sox 1B Jose Abreu survives a bit of an injury scare Friday
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/25/15) White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu gave the front office and coaching staff a scare Friday when he did a body slam into the infield dirt following a rundown in the third inning. Abreu laid motionless for a few moments after tripping over Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar at second base.
“When he ran down, I think he landed on the foot of the base on his ribs,” manager Robin Ventura said, per ESPN. “It kind of knocked the wind out him, and it was cold. At first I thought it was his wrist or something like that. I think there were a lot of things going on at the same time.”
Ventura added he had "a heart attack" when he saw his star first baseman lying on the ground.
“I'm just glad he's fine. Once he got over that, you could tell he was fine," Ventura said.
Abreu, who stayed in the game, went 2 for 4 before the game was suspended after eight innings due to inclement weather. It is expected to resume Saturday afternoon.
The 2014 AL Rookie of the Year is batting .317 with five home runs and 13 RBI.
White Sox masher Abreu tears up Indians again Wednesday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/22/15) White Sox slugger Jose Abreu has been tearing it up since arriving in the bigs to start the 2014 season. But he has really battered the Indians.
Abreu smashed his eighth home against Cleveland in just over a year Wednesday. He clobbered a blast to the opposite field against ace Corey Kluber in the first inning.
He wasn't done. He almost went yard again in the seventh and had to settle for a two-run double to left that knocked out Kluber.
Abreu has three home runs in his last five games, during which time he is 9-for-21 with 10 RBI.
|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.
