Jose Abreu sets rookie record for RBIs thru April
CHICAGO (AP) White Sox slugger Jose Abreu has set a major league rookie record for RBIs through the end of April.
Abreu drove in four runs Sunday, giving him 31 RBIs this season. He homered and singled against Tampa Bay.
Abreu began the day tied for the record with Albert Pujols, who had 27 RBIs in early 2001 for St. Louis.
Abreu’s 10th homer extended his own record for home runs by a rookie through April.
The White Sox started their season on March 31 and Abreu drove in one run that day.
