Astros' Jose Abreu: Lots of spring playing time
Abreu has gone 8-for-31 (.258) with two home runs and three doubles during Cactus League action.
Per Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle, Abreu asked managed Dusty Baker to give him plenty of playing time this spring, and the skipper has obliged. As a result, the veteran first baseman looks just about ready for Opening Day. Abreu posted a .304/.378/.446 line across 679 plate appearances in 2022 and will be entering his first campaign not in a White Sox uniform.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Jose Abreu: Bound for Houston
Abreu and the Astros agreed Monday on a three-year contract, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports. The deal is worth around $60 million, according to Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle.
With Yuli Gurriel (knee) becoming a free agent this winter, the Astros will turn to another mid-30s veteran in Abreu to step in as their everyday first baseman in 2023. Though his numbers have tapered off a bit since his American League MVP-winning campaign during the pandemic-shortened 2020 season, Abreu remained a well above league-average performer at the dish in his final two years with the White Sox. Over 679 plate appearances in 2022, Abreu slashed .304/.378/.446 with 15 home runs, 75 RBI and 85 runs en route to finishing with a 137 wRC+. A return to the 30-plus home-run production he delivered during his peak years with Chicago may not be attainable as he enters the back half of his thirties, but Abreu could see his RBI and run totals climb while he's surrounded by a more talented collection of hitters in Houston....

White Sox's Jose Abreu: Clubs 15th homer
Abreu went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, a walk and two total runs scored in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Rockies.
Abreu had to wait awhile to reach the 15-homer mark this year -- he entered Tuesday with a 37-game power drought dating back to Aug. 3. Over that span, the first baseman managed to hit .331, but he slugged just .373 with only six doubles, 11 RBI and 20 runs scored. The 35-year-old is up to a .312/.386/.457 slash line with 67 RBI, 79 runs scored and 33 doubles through 140 contests. Given his age, it's a little concerning to see the power drop off for such an extended stretch, though his contact skills remain sharp enough for him to retain solid fantasy value.... See More ...
