I agree with you too. This would make far more sense than signing someone like Kendrys Morales to play 1B. Abreu is a guy who is only 26 and is entering his prime years. A "win now" and a "win later" move at the same time. It would be a risk given that he has never played in MLB but I think it might be a risk worth taking. I like the idea of a young slugging tandem of Avisail Garcia and Jose Dariel Abreu hitting 3rd and 4th in our lineup for many years.
