Yankees To Excersize Abreu's Option
The New York Post's George Sherman made it clear that the Yankees are "certain they are going to pick up Bobby Abreu's $16M option for next season" (New York Post). Abreu struggled hitting in the low .250's the first half of the year, before closing out the second half batting .305, finishing the season at .283. He also hit 16 HR's, batted in 101, stole 25 bases, and scored 123 runs.
The option should of been a given with Abreu's ability to do everything in the game pretty well. He also has a career .408 OBP, so he is the ideal number 3 batter for the New York Yankees and new owner Hal Steinbrenner.
