When Jose Abreu made himself available to Major League Baseball teams this past offseason, sides clamoured to sign the powerful first baseman. And for good reason, the man has insane power.
On Wednesday night, the White Sox infielder demonstrated that monstrous power against the Colorado Rockies.
The 27-year old smashed two home runs out of the park but that wasn’t even the most memorable thing he managed in the evening. That award came off a foul ball – a foul ball that did it's best to spontaneously combust after being given an almighty whack by the Cuban.
As you can see above, the result of Abreu's sheer power is a baseball that looks like it's trying to undress itself, be free from its leather exterior.
The rookie's Thor like efforts were for naught however, as he and his White Sox brethren were on the wrong end of a 10-4 mauling at the hands of the Rockies.
Through his first eight official major league games in the States, Abreu has an American League-best 11 RBIs and five extra base hits, the 6-foot-3-inch, 255-pound giant certainly paying back his six years - $68 million deal he signed in October.
Get ready to see a lot more of 'The Bear' and Rawlings - the company that makes the balls - should be on alert and working over-time to stitch up a few more replacements to have on stand-by whenever Abreu comes up to bat in the future.
