Chicago White Sox rookie slugger Jose Abreu is scheduled to undergo further tests on his injured left ankle on Monday, after the team placed him on the 15-day disabled list on Sunday, according to Jon Morosi of FOX Sports.
The team announced that the first baseman was suffering from tendonitis in his ankle after he had to leave their Saturday game early due to pain caused by the injury, according to CBS Sports' Matt Snyder. Abreu is currently mobile but using a walking boot to protect the ankle.
The 27-year old has been an early season success for Chicago, hitting 15 home runs and slugging .595, leading the AL in both categories.
