    White Sox: Jose Abreu's five-week tear filled with hard contact, fewer strikeouts

    Jose Abreu has made quite a turnaround from being a guy who was admittedly lost to bashing the ball like Abreu of old. From April 19th on, Abreu has hit at another level, reminiscent of the performances he put on throughout an eye-opening 2014 campaign in which he was the unanimous American League rookie of the year winner. Over that stretch, Abreu has slashed at an absurd .347/.404/.677 clip with nine doubles, one triple, 10 home runs and 22 RBIs in 136 plate appearances.

Sale has fanned 95 in 65 2/3 over nine starts in his first year with the Red Sox.

The AL Central-leading Twins won the series opener 14-7, then turned to pitching as Ervin

    BenFred: Failure to sign Robert raises questions about Cards' approach

    It has been five days since we found out the Cardinals failed to sign sensational Cuban outfield prospect Luis Robert. The Arch still is standing. Hyperventilation has subsided. Shouts from the angry mob have simmered to a grumble. Life, like baseball, moves on. There will be another pitch to hit. There will be another exhilarating prospect or proven star up for grabs on the open market. But I can’t give you a good reason to believe things will play out any differently for the Cardinals when that time comes. You can hope, of course — and many will do just that — convincing themselves that the next time will be different from the growing list of last times. A tip: Resist. Realize this is a high-stress,
