1B. Chicago White Sox. Jose Abreu. 79. player. 128.

The Chicago White Sox have had a lot of great times with Jose Abreu in his career.

Jose Abreu is one of the best players in the history of the Chicago White Sox. He has been the catalyst for this team since he came into the league and will go down as a legend on the south side. With that said, he might be just about done in this uniform.

If the White Sox doesn’t move one of (or both) Andrew Vaughn or Gavin Sheets, there is no point in keeping Jose Abreu around. Those two guys along with Eloy Jimenez create a log jam of players that are DH/1B type guys. He is in the final year of his contract which is making things interesting.

The White Sox chose to keep Abreu at the 2022 deadline when there were a lot of teams that would have loved to add him for their playoff runs. They saw themselves as a potential playoff team so they hung on to all of their guys and Abreu is one of the ones that they could have moved.

Now there is a chance that he is back next year. He led the team in batting average, runs, hits, doubles, walks, and games played so you know he is incredibly reliable. However, of all the guys that survived the trade deadline this year, he is one of the most likely to be gone next year.
