White Sox's Jose Abreu slugs ninth homer in win Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/3/2015) White Sox designated hitter Jose Abreu went 2 for 4 with a home run and three RBI in his team's 9-2 win over the Rangers on Wednesday.

Abreu has missed time this week while dealing with a finger injury, but he was none the worse for wear on Wednesday, knocking a two-run homer to cap a six-run second inning and coming back with an RBI single in the fourth. He could be in for more time as the designated hitter as he continues to recover from the injury, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

"Just to make sure throwing wise, the finger that it’s on is on his throwing hand," manager Robin Ventura said. "We want to make sure that if something does happen … we wouldn’t have to do the thing we did the other day, where we had Flow [Tyler Flowers] going to first base. DH is the safest spot [for Abreu] and having LaRoche over at first. If something happens, we can adjust."

Abreu has hit .286/.343/.497 with nine home runs and 32 RBI in 185 at-bats.

White Sox 1B Jose Abreu (finger) unable to start Tuesday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/2/2015) White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu was hoping to return to the starting lineup Tuesday against the Rangers after sitting out two games due to a finger injury. However, he was held out a third straight game, as Adam LaRoche once again started at first base in Abreu's absence.

"The swelling has decreased," general manager Rick Hahn said, per MLB.com. "He still has a little bit of a bruise on the finger below the knuckle that hasn't completely resolved itself. We're going to hold him out today, keep him away from activity again today, but hopefully tomorrow start ramping up again and hopefully have him back out there in the not-too-distant future. It's just not quite to the spot where we want to put him out there in games."

"You could send him out there and one swing could probably send him back five more days," Ventura said. "It's gotten a lot better than it was in Houston. It's just not to a point where I'm comfortable having him go out there and swing full-time in a game."

Abreu is batting .293 with one triple, three doubles, three home runs and 14 RBI in his last 25 games.

Abreu is hitting .282 with eight home runs and 29 RBI in 181 at-bats this season.
