  • Astros' Jose Abreu: Out of lineup

    Abreu is not in the lineup for Thursday's contest in Kansas City, Chandler Rome of The Athletic reports..

    Abreu has been unspeakably bad at the plate in the early going, sporting a .227 OPS and 31.7 percent strikeout rate. It's his fourth day off already this season and in his last start he batted eighth. Given Abreu's struggles last season, he could continue to see his playing time dwindle if he doesn't right the ship. Jon Singleton will handle first base Thursday.

  • Astros' Jose Abreu: Out of lineup Sunday

    Abreu is out of the lineup for Sunday's matchup against the Rangers, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

    Abreu will get a break Sunday as Jon Singleton will take the field at first base. The veteran infielder has seen the plate 28 times this year, slashing .077/.143/.077 with only two hits and two runs. Abreu's starting spot could be in question eventually if the offensive struggles continue, especially with Triple-A prospect Joey Loperfido pushing for his major league debut.

  • Astros' Jose Abreu: Slipping down order

    Abreu has hit seventh in the Astros' lineup in consecutive games, Chandler Rome of The Athletic reports.

    Abreu has only two hits in his first 28 plate appearances of the season, and he's recently hit behind both Yainer Diaz and Chas McCormick. His slip down the order began Friday with the Astros facing a lefty, but he remained in the same position for right-hander Jon Gray on Saturday. While it's been a poor start to the season, Abreu should remain a regular in the lineup due to the limited number of alternatives Houston has at first base, unless the team opts to promote impressive prospect Joey Loperfido.

  • Astros' Jose Abreu: Retreats to bench Wednesday

    Abreu is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays, Matt Kawahara of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Abreu was on the bench for Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Yankees due to a sore hand, but he returned to the starting nine for both of the Astros' first two games against the Blue Jays, going 2-for-8 with a run scored. The Astros haven't indicated that Abreu suffered a setback with his hand in either contest, so his absence from the lineup Wednesday may be little more than a maintenance day. Jon Singleton will spell Abreu at first base and bat sixth.

  • Astros' Jose Abreu: Not starting Sunday

    Abreu is out of the lineup Sunday versus the Yankees.

    Abreu battled soreness in his right knee throughout spring training. He was sidelined for more than a week due to the issue and was able to ramp back up a bit before Opening Day. In his first 12 plate appearances of the season, the 37-year-old has not recorded a hit, though he has gotten aboard twice. Jon Singleton will start for him at first base Sunday while batting sixth.

  • Astros' Jose Abreu: Nursing sore hand

    Abreu is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Yankees due to hand soreness, Chandler Rome of The Athletic reports.

    The veteran first baseman will receive a day off after being hit by a pitch on the hand during Saturday's contest, though he's expected to be available off the bench Sunday. Abreu has gone 0-for-10 through the first three games of the season, so taking a day to reset regardless of the injury could prove beneficial.

  • Astros' Jose Abreu: Could see game action Sunday

    Abreu (knee) will go through full workouts Friday and Saturday with the goal of starting at designated hitter in Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Phillies, Brian McTaggart of MLB.comreports.

    The 37-year-old has been battling knee soreness over the past week, but a return to spring games this weekend would give him plenty of time to ramp up before Opening Day. Abreu could see more days off and more starts as the designated hitter this season after he posted a .679 OPS during his first campaign with Houston in 2023.

  • Astros' Jose Abreu: Battling knee soreness

    Abreu reported soreness in his right knee following Thursday's spring training game against the Cardinals, Matt Kawahara of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Abreu's knee problems came as a result of his sliding attempt to catch a foul ball during Thursday's contest. He will sit out of the Astros' next few exhibition games, but the concern regarding Abreu's Opening Day status is low. The 37-year-old is 4-for-14 with an RBI through six games so far this spring.
