The first baseman sat out Chicago’s regular season finale Sunday with an illness and did not travel with the team to Houston Tuesday. It turned out Abreu had the flu, not COVID-19, manager Tony La Russa said Wednesday, and his condition is improving.

Abreu batted .261 with 30 home runs, 30 doubles and 117 RBIs this season for the AL Central champion White Sox. He is a career .290 hitter and led the majors in RBIs in the pandemic-abridged 2020 season en route to his first MVP award.
