The Frontrunner: Jose Abreu (Chicago White Sox)
July 16, 2014
Abreu has been everything the White Sox hoped for and more in the first half of the season. Despite missing 14 games in late May with an ankle injury, he leads MLB with 29 home runs and he's third in baseball with 73 RBIs. Those numbers are worthy of MVP consideration, and certainly make Chicago's 27-year-old first baseman the AL Rookie of the Year favorite.
JG: As of today, Jose Abreu has 99 RBI's and 33 Home Runs. He may soon join Giancarlo Stanton in the exclusive 2014 100/30 Club.
