New York Mets manager Terry Collins plans to give OF Bobby Abreu around one outfield start per week to keep his bat fresh. Abreu started in the outfield for the first time in two years Thursday, April 24, to give OF Curtis Granderson a rest. Abreu hit .395 with a 1.086 OPS in 15 games with Triple-A Las Vegas.
Fantasy Tip: Abreu is strictly an NL-only commodity because his playing time will be sparse.

Philadelphia Phillies OF Bobby Abreu remains in the running for a bench job despite the fact he is hitting .214 during Grapefruit League spring play. He does have a team-high nine walks, and a .421 on-base percentage. "You know, he gives quality at-bats," manager Ryne Sandberg said Wednesday, March 19. "He's drawn a lot of walks. In some regards, the walks, he hasn't had a chance to swing and get hits in those at-bats. Bur he's on base and he has good at-bats and he continues to do that, so that's a good thing."
