Friday night saw Chicago White Sox rookie first baseman Jose Abreu hit his 24th and 25th home runs of the season.
Above is a GIF of the 25th home run of the season by Abreu.
Abreu, who signed a seven-year deal ($68 million) with the White Sox this past offseason, has not only the 25 home runs in 67 games played, but also had tallied 65 RBIs as well, and he’s missed a couple weeks this season with a stint on the disabled list.
The White Sox won the game, 5-4 on Friday night against the Toronto Blue Jays in Toronto.
In the MLB.com article of the White Sox win, Jamie Ross wrote:
“Abreu became the second player in MLB history to record four multi-homer games over his first 67 career contests, sending his second solo shot of the night to dead center field, just out of the grasp of a leaping Anthony Gose.”
Since June 18 (10 games) Abreu has six home runs.
It is still uncertain if Abreu will participate in the MLB Home Run Derby in mid-July.
In Friday night’s article on the win by CSN Chicago, it stated:
“Abreu broke up former Cy Young winner R.A. Dickey’s no-hitter in the fifth inning when he crushed a 3-2 knuckeball off the back of the second deck in left field for a solo homer, his 24th.”
For a season of frustration by the White Sox as a team, Abreu has been the consistent positive and a welcome addition to the franchise. For White Sox fans, and all MLB fans, every time he steps to the plate it should be “Must-See” TV.
