Jose Abreu Placed On 15 Day Disabled List

The rookie slugger Jose Abreu is healing slower than expected according to Chicago White Sox Manager Robin Ventura.

They believe Jose Abreu will return from the disabled list in 15 days but the White Sox plan to exercise caution.  Abreu, who has been placed in a walking boot and diagnosed with posterior tibia tendonitis in his left ankle -- returned to Chicago on Sunday for more tests and treatment.

In a report by NBC sports -- General Manager Rick Hahn emphasized on a conference call Sunday that the club wants Abreu to allow his ankle to properly heal before he can return to physical team activities. The ankle has bothered Abreu and required constant treatment since spring training.

“It would be pure speculation right now to guess that it’s something more serious,” Hahn said. “But since we do now have 15 days, we’re going to take our time to exhaust the possibilities. I dislike speculating on return timeframes. Obviously we tried to do that with Chris (Sale), and sometimes recovery takes longer. It can take a little longer to get inflammation out or get rid of some soreness. But as of right now, it’s reasonable to believe we’ll be able to resolve this thing within the 15-day period.”

Hahn went on to talk about Saturday's game against the Houston Astros -- where Abreu went 0 for 3 and had 1 RBI.

"It became clear to everyone who saw the game yesterday where it got to the point where he was basically playing on one leg," Hahn said of Abreu. "That obviously wasn't going to work to get him to maximize his ability, much less him being fully healthy. We made the decision to err on the side of caution here."

Abreu told reporters after the Game on Saturday that his ankle was clearly getting worse.  That's when the White Sox decided to pull the trigger on sending him home Sunday instead of giving him more time to rest by sitting him out -- and opted for putting him on the 15 day disabled list instead.

“I don’t think it’s worthwhile to go back and second-guess the treatment regimen,” Hahn said. “We have a great deal of faith in our doctors and well as our players’ ability to communicate exactly what they’re feeling.

“But it just got to the point it was clear we were going to have to take a step back for the long-term benefit of his recovery and take whatever time is necessary to get this thing right, as opposed to going back and forth every few days and letting him try to fight through it.”
