Chicago White Sox Offense Hitting On A Triple-Crown Pace

The Chicago White Sox may just have something going for them besides starting pitcher Chris Sale. There is a cool sight at the top of the the three major offensive categories in the American League–batting average, home runs, and RBIs. Currently, there is a Chicago White Sox player at the top of each of those three categories.

White Sox outfielder Dayan Viciedo leads the American League with a batting average of .367. Meanwhile, White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu leads not only the American League but all of Major League Baseball with 10 home runs and 31 RBIs.

This certainly is an encouraging sign for a White Sox offense that struggled mightily during the 2013 season.

To say that Abreu has exceeded his expectations in the early portions of his rookie campaign would be an understatement. Much like Sale is must watch baseball every time he takes the mound, Abreu is quickly becoming one of those players that fans go out of their way to see his at-bats.

Needless to say with Sale on the mound and Abreu on offense, the White Sox certainly will be a fun team to watch this season.
