  • Astros' Jose Abreu: Launches homer in win

    Abreu went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 10-1 win over the Athletics.

    Abreu's long power drought is over -- he failed to go deep in his first 50 games before his eighth-inning blast Sunday. The first baseman has had no fewer than 15 homers in any season of his career, though that low mark came in 2022, so it's concerning that trend has continued this year. He's hitting just .185 (15-for-81) in May and .214 on the season with 19 RBI, 14 runs scored and seven doubles across 213 plate appearances. He'll have a lot of catching up to do if he's going to get back to his established power production in 2023, and at 36 years old, it's not guaranteed he'll do it.

  • Astros' Jose Abreu: Walks twice in win

    Abreu went 0-for-2 in Sunday's win over the Athletics.

    Abreu took advantage of a wild Athletics pitching staff that gave up eight walks in total, taking two free passes himself in four at-bats. After hitting 25 or more home runs in six of his first eight MLB seasons, Abreu has struggled to replicate those power numbers in 2022 and 2023, notching just 15 long balls in 157 games last season and remaining homerless through 44 games in 2023. Though the 36-year-old's best days appear to be behind him, his role as an everyday player in the heart of an extremely talented lineup keeps him relevant in fantasy conversations, especially with Jose Altuve back in action for Houston.

  • Astros' Jose Abreu: One hit against former team

    Abreu went 1-for-5 in Friday's game against the White Sox.

    Abreu returned to Guaranteed Rate Field to face his former team, tallying a two-out single in the seventh inning but otherwise putting together an unremarkable performance. Abreu has one hit in three of his last four games -- including two doubles -- but he still has a disastrous .234 wOBA and 45 wRC+ across 156 plate appearances on the season.

  • Astros' Jose Abreu: Gets Wednesday off

    Abreu is not in the starting lineup Wednesday against the Angels, Chandler Rome of The Athletic reports.

    Abreu has struggled mightily in the month of May thus far with his 0-for-4 effort against the Angels on Tuesday seeing his slash for the month fall to .148/.258/.222 over 27 at-bats. Yainer Diaz will get the start at first base and hit seventh.

  • Astros' Jose Abreu: Back to cleanup duties

    Abreu went 1-for-4 with two RBI on Monday against the Giants.

    Abreu had been moved out of the cleanup spot for a span of five games, but he has now hit fourth in each of the Astros' last two matchups. He took advantage of that opportunity Monday, as he delivered an RBI single in the first inning to give Houston the lead. Even given the positive performance, Abreu has failed to record a multi-hit game in any of his last 10 starts and has hit just .175 with four RBI, two runs scored and one extra-base hit in that span.

  • Astros' Jose Abreu: Down to sixth in lineup

    Abreu has been moved down to sixth in the lineup, at least against righties, Brian McTaggart of reports.

The veteran first baseman is hitting .243 with a .277 OBP and has yet to hit a home run this year. He has hit just one long ball in his last 81 games.

  • Astros' Jose Abreu: Power still lacking

    Abreu went 1-for-4 with a double, an RBI and a run scored Tuesday against the Rays.

    Abreu tallied an RBI double and came around to score in the fifth inning of Tuesday's win. He now has at least one hit in seven of his last eight starts, which has resulted in a .273 average. Even with that positive production, he has only two extra-base hits in that span and four total on the campaign across 105 plate appearances. Overall, Abreu has maintained a 60 wRC+ and .256 wOBA.

  • Astros' Jose Abreu: Counting stats picking up

    Abreu went 1-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a run scored Monday against the Blue Jays.

    Abreu opened the scoring for the Astros in the first inning with a two-run double before also coming around to score. He has yet to homer this season, but he has two doubles, two runs scored and four RBI across his last five games -- though he's also hit only .143 in that span. Overall, Abreu has a very underwhelming 54 wRC+ and .250 wOBA after 75 plate appearances, but he continues to hit exclusively in the cleanup spot in the Houston lineup.

  • Astros' Jose Abreu: Mixed start to season

    Abreu went 1-for-5 with three strikeouts Tuesday against the Pirates.

    Abreu collected at least one hit in each of his first 10 games of the season, but he's also uncharacteristically struck out at a 27.8 percent clip early on. After Tuesday's performance, he's punched out three times in three of his last five games. He also has only one extra-base hit, which has led to an empty .280 batting average across 54 plate appearances on the campaign.

  • Astros' Jose Abreu: Lots of spring playing time

    Abreu has gone 8-for-31 (.258) with two home runs and three doubles during Cactus League action.

    Per Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle, Abreu asked managed Dusty Baker to give him plenty of playing time this spring, and the skipper has obliged. As a result, the veteran first baseman looks just about ready for Opening Day. Abreu posted a .304/.378/.446 line across 679 plate appearances in 2022 and will be entering his first campaign not in a White Sox uniform.
