Overall

Abreu has the making of a fast rising righty. His fastball works well, every so often flashing plus movement to compliment. Secondary offerings make his pitch mix deadly, slider is an above average pitch, change up flashes 50+, and felt comfortable enough with CB to back up on righties. Could run into some issues with command, as he walks more batters and gets himself into more trouble than he should. Timing become an issue when delivery starts to not be maintained correctly.

Future mid rotation starter if figures out command, with potential for more as his pitches all had flashes, but problems with inconsistency.
