Abreu expects to be ready to return when eligible

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Associated Press) -

White Sox slugger Jose Abreu expects to be ready to return from his ankle injury as soon as he's eligible to be activated from the 15-day disabled list.

Tops in the majors with 15 homers, the rookie from Cuba sees no "reason why" he won't be able to play by then.

Abreu was placed on the DL because of tendinitis in his left ankle on Sunday. He expects to be in a walking boot for three more days and hopes to begin practicing Monday. He says the doctors will let him know what he can do then.

Abreu spoke through an interpreter before Friday's game against the New York Yankees. He says he might have to adjust his hitting routine when he returns.
