Jose Abreu is returning to the White Sox lineup tonight against the New York Yankees. The 2020 American League MVP missed the last three games due to an ankle injury suffered against the Kansas City Royals on Sunday. Abreu’s slide into home plate to score the game-winning run resulted in left ankle inflammation.

Abreu missed all of the White Sox three-game set against the Minnesota Twins, but his team still prevailed with a 2-1 series advantage. He now returns against Yankees, who are third in the AL East with a 25-19 record. Friday night will mark Abreu’s 1,000th Major League game for the White Sox.

On the season, Abreu is slashing .255/.346/.482. The slugging first baseman has hit eight home runs and driven in 35 runs over 137 at-bats. Abreu returning to the lineup will surely provide a boost for the White Sox as they enter a challenging series against a talented Yankees team.
