Jose Abreu has been the face of the White Sox since he arrived on the scene in 2014. The White Sox are the only team that he has ever known and fans should be so thankful for that. He has come in and been a great loyal leader on this team. He was there through an entire rebuild that saw a lot of losing and he showed up with a smile on his face.

He could have easily requested a trade and not wanted to waste a lot of his prime on a bad baseball team but he stuck it out and was there for all the young guys. Now, he is getting ready to reap the benefits as the team is about to turn the corner. Abreu signed a three-year contract extension and figures to be a big part of their upcoming run.

Jose Abreu has a career slash line of .293/.349/.513. He has 179 home runs and 611 RBIs in 1038 hits. He has no doubt been a game-changing player for the White Sox while he was a member of the team. He has a career WAR of 21.2 so there is no doubt that he definitely helps the White Sox out. He finally has some talent around him so you can expect him to build on his American League RBI title that he earned in 2019. Abreu has been a great member of the White Sox so fans should be so thankful.
