Also named co-Player of the Week was Seattle Mariners player Kyle Seager.
In the release it states about Abreu:
“Abreu, 27, batted .310 (9-29) with five home runs, an AL-best 14 RBI, eight runs scored and a .862 slugging percentage to become the first White Sox player to win the honor since Alejandro De Aza on July 8-14, 2013.”
The very best part of this past week was Abreu’s walk-off grand slam on Friday, in the bottom of the ninth inning, with two outs against the Tampa Bay Rays at US Cellular Field.
The release also states:
“Abreu leads the major leagues with 10 home runs and 31 RBI and has set major-league rookie records for most homers and RBI through April.”
This was a well-deserved honor for Abreu, and he sure did have a great week of baseball against the Detroit Tigers and the Rays.
