Jose Abreu is out of his walking boot

White Sox rookie Jose Abreu is on the disabled list with an ankle injury, but Dan Hayes of CSNChicago.com reports that he’s been cleared to take off a walking boot and resume baseball activities.

For today that means taking some ground balls at first base and hitting off a tee. And apparently Abreu was really annoying about not wanting to wear the boot or sit around doing nothing, so manager Robin Ventura and the White Sox coaching staff is thrilled to have him making progress.

Abreu was off to a historic start with 15 homers and 42 RBIs through his first 44 career games after signing a six-year, $68 million deal with the White Sox this offseason.
