    Summary of 6 articles · Updated Aug 5, 2014
    He dropped the throw from Abreu that would have been the third out. The honors continue to pour in for White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu, as he was named both player of the month and rookie of the month for July. Abreu is also the first rookie in Major League history to be named Player of the Month twice in a season, and fourth to be named Rookie of the Month three or more times. Abreu, who has 86 RBIs, went 2-for-3 on the day he was named the American League's player and rookie of the month for July. Over the course of the month, Abreu went 37-for-99 and led the AL in average, doubles, slugging percentage , total bases , extra-base hits and times on base . In his first at-bat Monday night, Tyler Flowers of the Chicago White Sox hit a drive that bounced off the top of the wall in right field and back into play. It's hard, however, to deny the parallel between the specs and the stats: a .390 average with three of his seven home runs, 10 RBIs and, perhaps, most important, newfound assurance.
