Jose Abreu Had Impressive Series

Jose Abreu had a tough start to the season in 2016. After the slowest start in his MLB career, Abreu has started to turn it on offensively since the All-Star break. On Sunday against the Twins, Abreu hit two home runs and knocked in seven runs for the Sox. Abreu collected three hits on Sunday, and it was his third game of the series with three hits.

Abreu has been hot recently and in his last 30 games, the slugger is hitting .374 with 11 home runs. The 2014 AL Rookie of the Year now has 22 home runs on the season with 86 RBI and a .293 batting average. While it looked like Abreu might not hit 20 home runs this season, he could very well match his 30 home run total from 2015. It would have been nice to see this type of production from Abreu earlier this season, but it certainly won’t hurt now to have him produce.
