Player Outlook
Bryan Abreu passed up a few relievers in Houston's high-leverage hierarchy last season. Serving as the Astros' primary setup man in the eighth inning, Abreu established career highs across multiple categories in 2023, including games played (72), innings (72.0), saves (five) and holds (24). The 26-year-old posted elite ratios and was one of five relievers last season to record 100-plus strikeouts, hitting that mark right on the nose after throwing far more sliders (58.7% usage). The right-hander's upper-90s fastball was also more effective (.165 BA, 37.3% whiff), supplementing his slider as a secondary strikeout pitch. Abreu was looking like Houston's future closer, and he could still end up in the ninth, though he's been pushed back down the ladder for the time being with the addition of Josh Hader.

  • Astros' Bryan Abreu: Earns first save

    Abreu allowed a hit in a scoreless inning and earned a save over Baltimore on Friday. Abreu worked around a two-out single to close out the chaotic 14-11 victory. It was his first save of the year and he extended his scoreless streak to 8.2 innings. After allowing six runs in 5.2 innings to begin his season, Abreu has yielded just five runs in his last 32 appearances, lowering his season ERA to 2.58. Josh Hader seemingly received a routine day off after earning back-to-back saves against the White Sox on Wednesday and Thursday.

  • Astros' Bryan Abreu: Tallies 15th hold

    Abreu didn't allow a baserunner and struck out one across a scoreless eighth inning to earn the hold Tuesday against the Giants. Abreu turned in his fifth consecutive scoreless appearance and has earned four holds in that span. He has a team-high 15 holds this season and is also ranked inside the top five in the league with that mark. Overall, Abreu has an effective 2.88 ERA, though he has issued 20 free passes across 34.1 innings.

  • Astros' Bryan Abreu: Steps into setup role

    Abreu threw a scoreless eighth inning while allowing one hit and striking out three to record a hold Friday against the Tigers. Ryan Pressly (back) hasn't pitched since May 3, leaving Abreu as Houston's primary setup man. He blew the lead in his first opportunity in the role Sunday, but he performed well in Friday's appearance to tally his sixth hold of the season. Since allowing six earned runs across his first 5.2 innings of the campaign, Abreu has allowed only five earned runs across his last 15.2 frames.

  • Astros' Bryan Abreu: Not available Monday

    Astros manager Joe Espada announced that Abreu will not be available for Monday's game against the Blue Jays, Chandler Rome of The Athletic reports. After serving a two-game suspension to start the season, Abreu pitched Saturday and Sunday against the Yankees. He was roughed up in his 2024 debut Saturday, allowing three runs on two hits and two walks in one inning. With Josh Hader also unavailable Monday, the Astros will look to Ryan Pressly, Rafael Montero and Seth Martinez as their main options out of the bullpen.

  • Astros' Bryan Abreu: Serves two-game suspension

    The Astros activated Abreu from the restricted list Saturday, per MLB's transaction log. Abreu has served his two-game suspension for intentionally throwing at the Rangers' Adolis Garcia in Game 5 of the ALCS in 2023. Abreu will be available for Saturday's game against the Yankees.

  • Astros' Bryan Abreu: Settles at $1.75 million

    The Astros and Abreu avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.75 million contract Thursday, Ari Alexander of KPRC 2 Houston reports. It's a well-earned raise for Abreu, who was in his first year of arbitration eligibility. The hard-throwing reliever has been dominant for Houston over the last two seasons, posting a 1.84 ERA and 188:57 K:BB across 132.1 innings. If anything happens to closer Ryan Pressly, Abreu would be next in line.

  • Astros' Bryan Abreu: To serve two-game ban in 2024

    MLB announced Monday that Abreu's two-game suspension for throwing at the Rangers' Adolis Garcia in last Friday's Game 5 of the ALCS was upheld following an appeal, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports. Abreu will serve the suspension for the first two games of the 2024 regular season. The ruling comes as good news for the Astros, as Abreu won't have to miss Monday's Game 7 and will remain eligible to pitch should Houston earn its way to the World Series. Abreu has been the top setup option in front of closer Ryan Pressly in 2023, finishing the regular season with 24 holds and five saves to go with a 1.75 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 100:31 K:BB across 72 innings.

  • Astros' Bryan Abreu: Eligible to pitch in Game 6

    Abreu (suspension) is appealing his two-game suspension, and he's eligible to pitch in Sunday's contest with the Rangers. Abreu will have his appeal hearing Monday, so he will technically be available to pitch if needed in Game 6 of the ALCS. The right-hander was suspended for two games after he hit Rangers outfielder Adolis Garcia in Game 5.

  • Astros' Bryan Abreu: Suspended two games

    Abreu was suspended two games and fined an undisclosed amount of money for throwing at Adolis Garcia in Game 5 of the ALCS, Matt Kawahara of the Houston Chronicle reports. Abreu's suspension will begin immediately, which will keep him out for the remainder of the ALCS. However, Abreu will likely appeal the decision, which would allow the 26-year-old reliever to continue pitching until his hearing. Abreu has been a crucial part of Houston's bullpen during its postseason run, surrendering just one run over 6.1 innings while racking up 11 strikeouts.

  • Astros' Bryan Abreu: Notches fifth save

    Abreu allowed a hit and a walk while striking out one in a scoreless inning to earn the save in Saturday's 1-0 win over the Diamondbacks. Abreu has earned three saves and eight holds with a 34:13 K:BB during his 27.2-inning scoreless streak, which dates back to July 18. This was among his shakier outings in that span, but he was able to get the job done. The setup man has a 1.75 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 100:31 K:BB with five saves and 24 holds over 72 innings this season.

    Abreu (forearm) struck out one over 1.1 innings Wednesday against the Orioles. He did not allow a hit or a walk in the outing. Abreu was struck on his right forearm by a comebacker in Sunday's game against the Royals, but it seems like he is a healthy bullpen option going forward.

  • Astros' Bryan Abreu: Grabs fourth save

    Abreu picked up the save Sunday against the Yankees. He allowed a hit and two walks while striking out two over 1.1 scoreless innings.

Overall, Abreu's been solid while setting up Pressly this season -- his ERA is down to 2.39 with a 1.16 WHIP and 79:24 K:BB across 52.2 innings.

  • Astros' Bryan Abreu: Nabs Opening Day roster spot

    Manager Dusty Baker confirmed Sunday that Abreu has made the Astros' Opening Day roster, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports. Baker said that Abreu and Ronel Blanco secured the final two spots in the Astros' season-opening bullpen after Brandon Bielak and Seth Martinez were optioned to Sugar Land, while non-roster invitees Adam Morgan and Zac Rosscup were informed they wouldn't make the club. Abreu, who owns a 4.69 ERA and 11.3 K-BB% across 42 career big-league appearances, is expected to fill a low-leverage role out of the Houston bullpen.

  • Astros' Bryan Abreu: Sent to Triple-A

    Abreu was optioned to Triple-A Sugar Land on Monday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports. Abreu struggled mightily in a relief appearance Sunday and allowed seven runs on five hits and a walk while striking out one in two-thirds of an inning against the Rangers. He'll attempt to right the ship in the minors after Brandon Bielak was recalled from Triple-A Sugar Land on Monday.

  • Astros' Bryan Abreu: Back with big club

    The Astros recalled Abreu from Triple-A Sugar Land on Sunday, Justice delos Santos of MLB.com reports. Houston optioned Abreu to the minors Saturday, but he never reported back to Sugar Land and stuck around with the Astros on their West Coast road trip in case an extra reliever was needed. He'll be eligible to rejoin the Astros just one day later after closer Ryan Pressly was placed on the paternity list Sunday. Expect Abreu to work mostly in low-leverage spots out of the bullpen while he's on the 26-man active roster.

  • Astros' Bryan Abreu: Nears return

    Abreu (calf) struck out one and walked one over two-thirds of an inning for Triple-A Sugar Land on Saturday and could be activated off the 10-day injured list this week, Danielle Lerner of the Houston Chronicle reports. Abreu made his fourth appearance while on rehab, and it was the second of back-to-back appearances. Typically, going back-to-back days is the final box to be checked before activation.
