” He is presumably going to be active,” Cora said before Cincinnati’s 5- 2 victory over Boston on Friday night.

Abreu, who turns 25 on Monday, is being mentioned as an American League Rookie of the Year candidate. He is batting.272 with a.344 on- base chance and a.485 slugging percentage through 53 games this season( 169 at- bats). He has six homers, 14 doubles, two triples, 22 RBIs, seven steals, and 19 walks.

Abreu went 3- for- 12 with two home runs, three runs, two RBIs, one walk, and three strikeouts in three games with Triple- A Worcester before joining the Red Sox on Friday.

” I feel very good at the plate,” Abreu said Friday through a translator.” Hopefully it does not take long to get back to the form I was before the injury. So I hope everything goes well.”

Reds ’ Recent Performance

Everything went well for Cincinnati designated hitter Jeimer Candelario during Friday’s game. Candelario hit two single home runs and leads the Reds with 14 long balls on the season.

” Like I always said, I want to be ready for the miscalculations a pitcher makes, i want to attack the strike zone. For me right now it’s keep getting my reps the right way.. Hopefully I can continue doing this– what we are doing right now– and help the team win for sure. I am going to put myself in a good position to drive the ball up (the) opposite way into gaps and that is what happed today.”

Red Sox Offensive Highlights

Boston struck out 14 times during Friday’s loss, which is one strikeout shy of the team-high in a game this season. still, catcher Connor Wong and outfielder Jarren Duran did n’t struggle at the plate. Both hit solo home runs in the loss and will carry an 11- game hitting streak into Saturday’s matchup.

Wong is fur.335 with six home runs and 26 RBIs in 55 games this season, after hitting.235 in 126 games last season.

” Night and day compared to last year, night and day.. I suppose overall his at- bats are solid. He is executing the plan. He made some adaptations mechanically, but I think it’s about prosecution and he is been great.”

Alex Cora

Conclusion

As the Boston Red Sox prepare for the second game against the Cincinnati Reds, the potential return of Wilyer Abreu adds an exciting element to their lineup. With both teams aiming for a win, the matchup promises to be a competitive and nearly watched contest.
