Bautista To Talk To Abreu About HR Derby 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Jun 27, 2014 11:28 am

Jose Bautista plans to talk with Jose Abreu about competing in next month's Home Run Derby when the Toronto Blue Jays and Chicago White Sox face off this weekend.

Bautista is the captain of the American League's derby squad.

"He's a guy that's on my short list, but I have to talk to him and see what he says and we'll take it from there," Bautista said.

Abreu's 23 home runs rank third in the AL, but he said earlier this week that he thinks the derby would negatively affect his swing.
