Jose Abreu and Adam Eaton named co-AL Players of the Week

First baseman Jose Abreu and outfielder Adam Eaton of the Chicago White Sox have been named co-American League Players of the Week for the period of July 27-August 2.

Abreu, 28, batted .400 (10-25) with three doubles, three home runs, 10 RBI, seven runs scored, a .500 on-base and .880 slugging percentage to earn his second career weekly honor (also April 21-27, 2014). He currently owns a 13-game hitting streak (.367, 18-49), his sixth career streak of 13 or more games.

Eaton, 26, hit .517 (15-29) with three doubles, a triple, home run, four RBI, 10 runs scored and three stolen bases for his first career weekly honor. He led the AL in average, on-base percentage (.600) and runs scored.

Eaton has hit safely in a season-high 11 consecutive games (.455, 20-44) and has scored a run in 10 straight contests, the longest streak by a White Sox player since Jim Thome opened the 2006 season with a franchise-record 17-game streak.

Eaton leads the AL after the break in runs scored (18) and on-base percentage (.532) and ranks among the leaders in average (5th, .410).

Abreu and Eaton are the first White Sox teammates to share the weekly award.
