Chicago White Sox first baseman José Abreu made his MLB debut in 2014 amid high expectations given his past success in Cuba.

It has been exactly as advertised, if not better.

The White Sox should consider themselves lucky that he picked them, as he’s been a consistent run producer for years.

The pinnacle of his performance came in 2020, when he won an MVP award.

Throughout all these years, he has hit the pitching for the Detroit Tigers to help improve their stats.

He’s not a “stat aggregator” by any means, and his .292/.354/.508 career line proves it.

Still, it doesn’t hurt that the Tigers’ pitching hasn’t been really competitive for a while.

Abreu loves hitting against Detroit, and this spectacular stat proves it.

“Jose Abreu of the @white sock has 195 hits against the Tigers since debuting in 2014. That’s the most hits by any MLB player against a single team in that time,” Stats by STATS tweeted on Friday.

The Tigers are Abreu’s favorite victim

Since Abreu made his debut, no one has had more hits against a single opponent than the Cuban star against the Tigers.

It’s amazing: It seems like every game he plays against them ends with two or three hits for him.

The White Sox are about to start a weekend series against the Tigers, so it should be a productive three days if recent history is to be believed.

The 2022 season has been positive for the 35-year-old Abreu.

While he doesn’t boast about the kind of power output that made him famous, he’s still slashing .313/.386/.458 with 15 homers, 79 runs and 69 RBIs for the pale hose.

He will be a key piece in the lineup as Chicago tries to overcome a three-game deficit in the AL Central and reach the postseason.
