White Sox slugger Jose Abreu first broke unto the MLB scene last season with an MVP-like rookie campaign.

As good as he was last season, Abreu only made expectations for his sophomore season that much higher.

While he hasn’t had quite the year in 2015 as he did as a rookie, the White Sox first baseman hit his team-leading 30th home run Wednesday night .

In 2014, Abreu knocked in 36 homers, 107 RBIs and a .317 BA. This year, his batting average (.291) and RBIs (99) have dipped a bit but not by much.

For his efforts, the young Cuban joins elite MLB company.

He’s been a vital part to the White Sox offense, and it appears he’ll be the center of such for a while.
