    José Abreu laughed while pondering whether August was his favorite month to hit. The numbers make a strong case. Abreu has a .334/.389/.606 slash line with 58 doubles, 58 home runs, 172 RBIs, 146 runs and a .995 OPS in 219 career games in August. The 58 home runs are 17 more than any other month (41 in May). His 172 RBIs are 29 more (143 in May), and his .995 OPS is .152 higher (.843 in July). His 172 August RBIs since 2014 are the most in the majors. “I think it’s just the work because my body feels good,” Abreu said through an interpreter Thursday afternoon at Globe Life Field. “But this time of the season, my body always feels good. I hope that I can carry that into the future and keep feeling good and healthy as I have been in August. “There’s not a key for me, just work.” He’s 5-for-16 with two home runs and six RBIs in the team’s first four games this month. To be fair, Abreu’s recent tear started well earlier. He’s...
    A Boston Red Sox minor leaguer sparked a brawl during a Double-A game in Maine this week by charging the mound and dropping an opposing pitcher with a right hook after getting beaned with a pitch. Portland Sea Dogs first baseman Tyreque Reed, a 24-year-old prospect, charged Binghamton Rumble Ponies hurler Marcel Renteria on Thursday after taking a pitch off his hip in the third inning. Reed did not appear agitated about being struck, and instead began jogging down to first base. But when a visibility upset Renteria began demonstrably gesturing towards home plate and yelling, Reed changed course, stepped over to the mound, and dropped the pitcher with a single right hook.

    Yankees: Star third baseman is back with the team and could be activated on Sunday Andres Chavez July 24, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit The New York Yankees have sure missed his contributions on the batter’s box and on the field, where his glove could have made a difference in at least one of the hotly contested affairs against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park this weekend. But at long last, third baseman Gio Urshela is back with the team after a stint on the COVID-19 injured list. He could be activated on Sunday. “That was a boring 10 days,” Urshela said, according to MLB.com. “I had to do something; trying to feel the bat, keep it in the mind.” Urshela hasn’t played for the Yankees since July 11, prior to the All-Star break. Upon play resuming in the second half, it was revealed that the team had several positive cases: Aaron Judge, Kyle Higashioka, Nestor Cortes Jr., Jonathan Loaisiga, Wandy Peralta, and Urshela....
    BOSTON (CBS) — Yet another three-game sweep of the New York Yankees by the Boston Red Sox seemed pretty evident early Sunday afternoon. Rafael Devers made sure of that. After Enrique Hernandez led off the bottom of the first with a solo homer, Devers added to Boston’s lead by absolutely destroying a Gerrit Cole 100 mph fastball. The Sox third baseman launched an absolute no-doubter of a three-run homer, sending the fastball 451 feet to right field.

    Los Angeles Angels pitcher Shohei Ohtani suffered an awkward looking injury during Sunday’s game against the Chicago White Sox. Sunday Night Baseball might as well have been called the “Shohei Ohtani show,” as the pitcher-hitter had a historic first inning that saw him pitch a scoreless frame and hit a home run in the bottom half of the inning. Unfortunately, the night turned sour for the dual-threat player. In the top of the fifth-inning, Ohtani seemingly struck out Chicago White Sox third baseman Yoan Moncada, but the pitch just went passed catcher Max Stassi. After missing the throw out at first base, Ohtani covered home plate to try and get the out on first baseman Jose Abreu. The thing is, the reigning AL MVP collided into Ohtani’s legs, knocking him to the ground. Ohtani did get up from the collision, but he was sporting a limp. He was pulled from the game by manager Joe Maddon, as we await official word on the severity of his injury. This story will be updated with additional information. Next: Fernando Tatis, Jr. sets...

    CHICAGO (CBS) — White Sox slugger José Abreu has a new trophy to add to his shelf, after he was named the American League winner of the 2020 Hank Aaron Award for the most outstanding offensive player. He’s the first Cuban-born player and the first member of the White Sox to win the Hank Aaron Award. Abreu, 33, already had been named American League Most Valuable Player, and had won a Silver Slugger Award this season. He joins Mike Trout as the only two players in Major League Baseball history to win an AL MVP, an AL Rookie of the Year Award, a Silver Slugger, and a Hank Aaron Award.

    CHICAGO (CBS) — White Sox center fielder Luis Robert won a Gold Glove on Tuesday, the first rookie in team history to win that honor. On the North Side, first baseman Anthony Rizzo and shortstop Javier Baez also won Gold Gloves. It’s the fourth time Rizzo has won the award, and the first time Baez has won. Robert, 23, is the fifth outfielder in White Sox history to win a Gold Glove, joining Ken Berry (1970), Tommie Agee (1966), Jim Landis (1961-64) and Minnie Miñoso (1957, ’60). Robert posted a .994 fielding percentage in center field in 2020, committing one error in 154 chances, and he led all American League outfielders in total chances and ranked sixth overall in defensive WAR (1.0). “I have always dreamed of winning a Gold Glove, so this is a dream come true.

    BOSTON (AP) — Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts has grown accustomed to being on big stages during his first seven years in the major leagues. He won a World Series ring as a rookie with the Red Sox in 2013 and became a full-time starter the following season. He’s since earned another ring in 2018 and followed that up last year by becoming the first Boston shortstop since Nomar Garciaparra to post 30 home runs and 100 RBIs in a season. It helped Bogaerts earn his second All-Star selection, third Silver Slugger award and a fifth-place finish in American League MVP balloting. Now, as the Red Sox prepare for the shortened 2020 season with low expectations after trading 2018 MVP Mookie Betts and left-hander David Price to the Dodgers, the 27-year-old Bogaerts believes he’s ready to step into a leadership role. “I think so,” he said Tuesday. “Obviously those are two guys that are still missed. Guys that were well-loved by our teammates and obviously the city. So I’m looking forward to the season.” Usually a reserved presence in the...

Heres the full list of chains. Red Sox sign their first-round pick, second baseman Nick Yorke The Boston Red Sox have signed first-round pick Nick Yorke, according to MLB.com’s Jim Callis (via Twitter). Yorke will receive a $2.7M bonus. © Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports Boston's first-round pick, second baseman pick Nick Yorke, hit .505 last season for Archbishop Mitty in San Jose, Calif. That’s well shy of the $3,609,700 slot value allocated to the 17th overall selection, with which York was taken.  That was the expectation when the Sox surprisingly nabbed the high school second baseman, who wasn’t widely seen as a first-round talent entering the draft. Yorke played high school baseball at Archbishop Mitty in San Jose, Calif., where he .505 with 40 RBIs last season. The Red Sox obviously have a lot of faith in Yorke. Signing him to an under-slot deal also allowed the team to make more noise in...
