The Chicago White Sox learned that Jose Abreu has accepted his qualifying offer and will remain a member of the team, and that is amazing news.

The Chicago White Sox have learned that one of their star player in Jose Abreu is going to remain with the team. He accepted his qualifying offer to remain with the club on Thursday afternoon. That is fantastic news for anyone who wants to see this team do well. They are officially looking like a team that could compete for the playoffs. Jose Abreu’s presence is a major factor in that possibility.

Abreu is the leader of the team both on and off the field. He is an elite hitter in the league and can help the team win on the field as good as any player on the team. He led the American League with 123 RBIs. Having the RBI leader in the middle of your lineup is something that will certainly help out the young stars like Eloy Jimenez, Yoan Moncada, Tim Anderson, and Luis Robert. Abreu slashed .284/.330/.503 in 2019 so there is no doubt that this was a bit of good news for the White Sox. He also added 33 home runs to his monstrous totals.

Jose Abreu has been with the White Sox through thick and thin. They kept him on board during a long and grueling rebuild. They traded away just about every bit of talent in their Major League lineup and somehow Abreu survived. They even said no to trading him during a season that they weren’t going to the playoffs and he was on an expiring contract. They literally bet on him sticking around and he rewarded them. He has been loyal to the White Sox during a tough time to be loyal so it is only fair that the White Sox reward him.

Good times are ahead and Abreu deserves to be a part of it. He is still going to be one of the best players on the team and he isn’t the only guy who is relied on for offense anymore. He is also one of the elder players on the team so he can help out the players who are on the younger side and need to learn how to win. There is no doubt that this is awesome for the White Sox both on and off the field and it is so exciting to know that Jose Abreu is going to be back in 2020. White Sox fans should be excited because good times are ahead.
