1. 1B Jose Abreu, Chicago White Sox
Hosmer, Dozier and Kinsler are pretty much interchangable on this list as any of them could be ranked ahead of each other, but there is no debate here. Abreu is clearly the hottest hitter in the division and maybe the entire league.
The second-year player is batting an astonishing .508/.516/.678 in 59 Spring Training at-bats.
Should fantasy owners be concerned he has only gone deep once and 23 of his 30 hits are singles? Not at all, this guy was already a first round pick, now he is approaching top tier status.
It’s frightening to think that he could be even better than his rookie year which saw Abreu hit .317/.383/.581 with 36 home runs and 107 RBI.
