White Sox rookie first baseman Jose Abreu came to major league baseball with some hype, as many Cubans do, but there wasnt any expectation for the kind of first month that hes enjoying. Kaka Jersey . 27-years-old with a power-hitters build (listed at 6-foot-3, 255 pounds), Abreu has roared into the majors, with 10 home runs, 31 RBI, a .262 batting average and .962 OPS in his first 26 games. As with any one-month sample, these numbers arent sustainable, but what is fair to expect from Abreu? For one thing, his batting average on balls in play is .246, which is well below average, so it would be fair to expect his batting average to go up as a few more balls fall in, but hes also had a major-league best 33.3% of his flyballs leave the park, which isnt going to hold. Over the past five seasons, there have been two seasons in which a player finished with more than 27% of his flyballs turning into home runs -- Adam Dunn in 2012 (29.3%) and Chris Davis in 2013 (29.6%) -- so Abreu is most likely to fall off his current 62-home run pace. No, seriously. What will bear watching with Abreu is how pitchers adjust to him as he makes his way through the league. He swings at a lot of pitches out of the strike zone and hes already seeing among thelowest percentage of strikes when hes at the plate, so pitchers are learning. Its also interesting to note that, thus far, while Abreu destroys fastballs and sliders, hes struggled with change-ups. If thats the scouting report, surely hell start seeing more change-ups, if just to affect his timing. At this point, 14.5% of the pitches Abreu has faced have been change-ups; it will be interesting to see if that number increases over the next month or more. None of this anticipated regression should come as a surprise, merely as a caution. Baseball tends to catch up to sluggers, especially ones that are willing to expand their strike zone by swinging freely. GOOD ADDS (available in at least 40% of TSN leagues) Nick Castellanos, 3B, Detroit - 3 HR, 13 RBI, .258 AVG, 7 R, 66 AB (Available: 71.6%) Dioner Navarro, C, Toronto - 1 HR, 14 RBI, .309 AVG, 11 R, 81 AB (Available: 89.6%) Alberto Callaspo, 3B/2B, Oakland - 3 HR, 13 RBI, .272 AVG, 9 R, 81 AB (Available: 74.6%) Casey McGehee, 3B, Miami - 0 HR, 16 RBI, .287 AVG, 5 R, 94 AB (Available: 75.8%) Dillon Gee, RHP, N.Y. Mets - 2-1, 2.88 ERA, 1.01 WHIP, 27 K, 40 2/3 IP (Available: 65.7%) Ian Kennedy, RHP, San Diego - 2-3, 3.16 ERA, 0.95 WHIP, 37 K, 37 IP (Available: 76.2%) CLOSER NOTES The Angels have demoted Ernesto Frieri, leaving side-arming veteran Joe Smith for the role. Smith, 30, recorded the first three saves of his career last season for Cleveland. While hes not the classic fire-balling closer, Smith has managed to miss bats this year, striking out 11 in 10 innings, the best rate of his career. Pirates closer Jason Grilli is on the DL with a strained oblique. Mark Melancon, who has 37 career saves, takes over. Melancon has been really good for the Pirates over the past couple seasons, posting a 1.41 ERA and 0.92 WHIP in 84 games, striking out 79 in 83 innings. If the Pirates are in position to win games, Melancon is qualified to close them out.

The Bulls have won nine of their last 10 games and posted a 107-100 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday, as Jimmy Butler scored 33 points and Derrick Rose added 19. Aaron Brooks and Taj Gibson scored 13 and 12 points, respectively, with Gibson adding 10 rebounds. We got a lot of easy baskets. As a team, we rebounded the ball well and we got into the open court, Butler said. We got a lot of layups. When were playing like that were really hard to beat. Butler is averaging 26.3 ppg in his last six games. Chicago shot 46.1 percent and scored 23 points off 15 New Orleans turnovers. During the winning streak, the Bulls have won by an average score of 109.0 to 99.7. They are seventh in the NBA with 103.5 ppg and have lived up to the defensive reputation with an opponents scoring average of 98.7 ppg. The Bulls, who have scored 100 or more points 13 times in the last 16 games, have been dominant on the road with a 13-4 record and the 13 away wins are tied with Golden State for the most in the NBA. Chicago is 14-4 against teams from the East and 16-5 when reaching the 100- point mark. It will begin a five-game homestand Tuesday versus Brooklyn. The Pacers have won three of their last four games, and will play two straight at home versus Chicago and Miami. Jonas Jersey. They are 6-8 in Indy. Indiana is coming off Saturdays 110-85 victory over the Nets and was led by Rodney Stuckeys 20 points and season-high eight assists. David West and C.J. Watson scored 17 points apiece for the Pacers, who made 51.2 percent from the field and 9-of-18 3-pointers. Were making shots and were playing for each other, Pacers head coach Frank Vogel said. Were playing unselfish and hopefully that continues. Vogels team scored 60 points in the second half and had 33 assists. West has been playing well lately with an average of 13.6 ppg in his last nine games. It has helped the Pacers shoot 50 percent or better in each of the previous four games after failing to hit the mark over the first 27. Indiana, which is 6-9 versus the East, is scoring 94.7 ppg, which is 26th in the NBA. However, it is third in opponents scoring at 96.5 ppg. The Pacers defeated the Bulls, 99-90, on Nov. 15 at the United Center thanks to 21 points from Luis Scola, Solomon Hill and A.J. Price. Butler scored 32 points in that one for Chicago, which is winless in the last four trips to Indiana. Chicago leads the overall series 89-80 with the Pacers, but Indiana holds a 56-29 advantage at home. The Bulls are 6-22 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
