The 38-year-old Abreau is in  his 17th Major League season in 2012, his fourth campaign with the Angels.  He appeared in 456 games with the Halos over the last three-plus seasons, batting .267 (443/1662) with 239 runs scored, 103 doubles, 43 home runs, 246 RBI and 75 stolen bases.  In 2011, he hit .253 (127/585) with 30 doubles, eight home runs, 60 RBI and 21 stolen bases in 142 games.  His streak of 150 games played ended at 13 consecutive seasons – the streak matched Willie Mays’ MLB record (1954-66).  Abreu also notched 20 stolen bases for the 13th consecutive season in 2011, the longest active streak in MLB.

 

The Venezuelan native is just one of four players all-time with at least 500 doubles, 250 home runs & 350 stolen bases (Barry Bonds, Rickey Henderson and Craig Biggio).  He is the only player in MLB history to log 20 HRs, 20 SBs & 40 2Bs in a season five times.  Abreu is a two-time All-Star (2004 & 2005), a Gold Glove recipient (2005) and a Silver Slugger honoree (2004).

 

For his career, the veteran is batting .293 with 1,413 runs scored, 557 doubles, 58 triples, 284 home runs, 1,330 RBI and 393 stolen bases.  He ranks eighth among actives with 2,389 hits and 1,413 runs, second in doubles (557), seventh in RBI (1,330) and sixth in stolen bases (393).  Abreu’s 2,389 career hits rank third all-time among Venezuelans.

Abreau has played in both leagues. Houston and Philadelphia in the National League and the Yankees and Angels in the American League.

Abreau was picked up by the crosstown rival Los Angeles Dodgers.
