Until he faces Major League pitching, we just don't know.
I'm of the opinion that Abreu will be one of the better hitters on this team, almost immediately, but this is a pretty fair and understandable position to take.

It should also be noted that Cespedes, after having that great rookie season in 2012, regressed in basically every way possible last year.
