White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu is likely to rejoin the team on Monday, ESPN Chicago’s Doug Padilla reports. The slugger has been on the disabled list since May 18 with posterior tibia tendinitis in his left ankle, and recently discarded his walking boot to resume baseball activities.
Prior to going on the DL, Abreu was the major league leader in home runs and RBI with 15 and 42, respectively, in his team’s first 45 games. When he returns, he’ll be looking to improve upon his impressive .260/.312/.595 slash line.
