CF,LF,RF - BOS
Wilyer Abreu is in the starting lineup for the Boston Red Sox against the Tampa Bay Rays Monday.
Abreu will see the field with Alex Verdugo (hamstring) out Monday, starting in center field and batting leadoff for manager Alex Cora against the Rays.
Wilyer Abreu's impressive season continues, boasting a .500 batting average, with a home run and five RBIs in just three games played.
With a high wOBA of 0.615 and a BABIP of 0.556, Abreu has shown great potential for fantasy baseball owners moving forward.
The Boston Red Sox have called up outfield prospect Wilyer Abreu.
Abreu, 24, will take the roster spot of Jarren Duran who has been placed on the injured list with a toe injury. Abreu began the season on the injured list due to a hamstring issue but returned to hit .274 with 22 homers, eight stolen bases, and a .929 OPS across 86 games with Triple-A Worcester. He will be available for Tuesday's contest in Houston.
Boston Red Sox prospect Wilyer Abreu will 'be out for a while' with a left hamstring strain.
Red Sox manager Alex Cora delivered the news after Abreu pulled up with a hamstring injury following a hit in Sunday's game. The 23-year-old infielder hit a grand slam Thursday but will now seemingly miss notable time. He hit 19 homers alongside 31 stolen bases across 129 games at the Double-A level between the Astros and Red Sox organizations last season.
