The already beaten up Chicago White Sox roster may have taken yet another hit. The team’s MVP slugger Jose Abreu left Sunday’s first game as he fell victim to a 96 mph fastball to the knee during the sixth inning.

X-rays taken came back negative and Abreu is currently listed as day-to-day, however there is no telling how long this may keep Jose out of the lineup.

White Sox Manager Tony La Russa stated in an interview prior to the series with the Mariners that Jose was already dealing with a few lingering issues. This latest injury could very well be the final nail in the coffin for Jose to take an extended seat.

There is no questioning Abreu’s toughness. Earlier this season, Jose Abreu was injured on the base paths in a collision with Hunter Dozier and only missed one game. He also took an erroneous bat toss to the shin via umpire Erich Bacchus on June 9.

The White Sox don’t have an off day until July 8 and with the current state of the White Sox roster, any small absence from Abreu would be yet another significant blow to the lineup.

[…] The deck is stacked against them in large part due to issues on the pitching front. But, can a depleted White Sox offense muster up enough firepower to kick them while they’re down? The last ten days haven’t been particularly encouraging, as the Sox are in the midst of perhaps the worst offensive malaise of the 2021 season. It will be necessary for veteran leaders Tim Anderson, Yoan Moncada, and Yasmani Grandal to pick up the slack for an injury-riddled lineup that may very well be without the services of Jose Abreu after he exited Sunday’s first game against the Seattle Mariners.
