White Sox 1B Jose Abreu survives a bit of an injury scare Friday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2015) 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.

Abreu has three home runs in his last five games, during which time he is 9-for-21 with 10 RBI.

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

The grand slam was Abreu's second of his career.

"I really like the feeling the guys have of all those professional at bats, just the consistency of that," manager Robin Ventura said to ESPN.com. "And doing it over and over again, the whole game it felt like that. They've been feeling this way for a while so it's the belief in that. That's the biggest thing for me is their belief in doing that."

Abreu also added a double in the game and went 3 for 6 overall.


White Sox slugger Jose Abreu open to playing third base


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2015) Jose Abreu could soon be adding another weapon to his already impressive list on the baseball field. The White Sox slugger has opened himself up to the possibility of playing third base.

Abreu, who handled the shortstop position at times in Cuba, has rotated with newcomer Adam LaRoche between first base and designated hitter. But 20 interleague games on the schedule has Abreu seeking to play some third base in order to keep his bat in the lineup. He has been taking ground balls at the hot corner in practice to prepare himself.

"If something is decided for the team to win, I will [play third base]," Abreu told ESPN. "I will do it."

That attitude has White Sox manager Robin Ventura singing his praises.

"It's one of the mature parts about him: It's not about personal gain or fame or anything like that," Ventura said. "He just wants to be a good baseball player and help his team win."

Abreu has three hits over his last eight at-bats. He is slashing .240/.321/.560 with two homers and two RBI over his first 25 at-bats.

by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
