White Sox put Abreu on DL with ankle injury
ESPN 288+ SHARES
Chicago White Sox rookie first baseman Jose Abreu, the major league leader in home runs, was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday with tendinitis in his left ankle.
The White Sox announced that Abreu has been diagnosed with posterior tibia tendinitis in the ankle.
Speedy outfielder Adam Eaton was activated from the disabled list in a corresponding move.
Abreu wore a protective shield on his ankle but was noticeably hampered by the injury during Saturday's loss to the Houston Astros.
After limping during an at-bat that ended with a fly out, Abreu was replaced in the seventh inning Saturday by veteran Paul Konerko.
