It was another August of Abreu for the de facto captain of the Chicago White Sox. MLB announced its monthly award winners Thursday, and White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu earned American League Player of the Month honors for August.

Across 28 games in August, Abreu slashed .330/.382/.661 with 10 home runs, seven doubles, and 25 RBIs, good for a 182 wRC+. This trend is nothing new for the South Side’s star first baseman, as he owns a slash line of .335/.390/.604 with 56 home runs and 166 RBIs, good for a 168 wRC+, across 215 games in August throughout his career.

Abreu’s impressive performance helped propel the White Sox to a 16-12 August record (.571 winning percentage), which was the club’s second-best monthly mark of the 2021 season only behind May (19-10 record, .655 winning percentage).

Winning AL Player of the Month for August is just another notch in Jose Abreu’s belt, as he captured the award last season as well en route to 2020 AL MVP honors.
