Expert NoteView More Notes
For most players, fantasy managers need to consider whether to discount a highly out-of-character dip in their numbers given the shortened season. For Abreu, it's the opposite - whether fantasy managers should give credence to an outstanding MVP season, during which Abreu vastly outperformed his numbers from every other season of his career. Everything was good for Abreu in 2020, everything. He hit the ball harder than ever and consistently. He got on base more. He had career-high paces in every category. Abreu will be entering his age-34 season, so there's no way you should expect a repeat performance, but it's worth noting that he has increased his average exit velocity and hard-hit percentage in each of the last five seasons. Abreu's cost doesn't match his numbers last year, of course, but you'll still have to pay a hefty price in drafts. Given his safety and and his newly-discovered upside, however, it's worth it.

Jose Abreu yields a positive COVID-19 test during intake
Jose Abreu will be away from spring training for the next several days after producing a positive COVID-19 test during intake.
White Sox GM Rick Hahn says Abreu is asymptomatic, though he had some mild symptoms back in January. There's a chance he already had COVID-19. As of now there's no reason to think he won't be ready well before Opening Day.
