White Sox rookie Jose Abreu is on the disabled list with an ankle injury, but Dan Hayes of CSNChicago.com reports that he’s been cleared to take off a walking boot and resume baseball activities.

For today that means taking some ground balls at first base and hitting off a tee. And apparently Abreu was really annoying about not wanting to wear the boot or sit around doing nothing, so manager Robin Ventura and the White Sox coaching staff is thrilled to have him making progress.

Abreu was off to a historic start with 15 homers and 42 RBIs through his first 44 career games after signing a six-year, $68 million deal with the White Sox this offseason.

    Is a walking boot like a manly slipper?

    Good! When this guy is playing, the game of baseball is better.

    No. A walking boot is made for walking, and that’s what Abreu will do.

    PART of being a professional athlete is following the training staff’s instructions, the doctors orders etc…

    It is NOT a fun part and it is out of the public’s eye and not fun for the young man, but it IS a part of pro sports…

    Off season training is a part of pro sports.

    Not eating your way off the team (see Montero, Jose formerly of the Seattle Mariners) is a part of pro sports…

    Watch what you eat. Train in the off season.

    When hurt, do what the doc’s and trainers say. One needs to be professional when they are being paid to play a game and the game has MANY facets to it… year round.

      Oh yeah, that Jose Montero… always up to mischief.

      I wonder if he is related to Jesus Montero?
