HOUSTON — José Abreu and the World Series champion Astros have agreed to a $58.5 million, three-year contract, adding another powerful bat to Houston's lineup. Abreu, the 2020 AL MVP, spent his first nine major league seasons with the Chicago White Sox. The first baseman became a free agent after batting .304 with 15 home runs and 75 RBIs this year. He replaces free agent Yuli Gurriel at first base in a batting order that also features All-Star sluggers Yordan Alvarez, Jose Altuve, Alex Bregman and Kyle Tucker. The 35-year-old Abreu is a three-time All-Star and 2014 AL Rookie of the Year.
