Yanks Likely To Exercise Abreu's Option

Bobby Abreu has a $16MM option for the 2008 season with a $2MM buyout attached.  Effectively, it's a $14MM decision for Brian Cashman.  Despite an awful start to the season, Abreu has solid counting stats and a .287/.367/.454 line overall.  Since June 1st, he's hitting an elite .320/.398/.548 in 347 ABs.  Abreu will turn 34 in March.

According to both Buster Olney and Tyler Kepner of the New York Times, the option is a virtual lock to be picked up.  Most teams would be very eager to sign Abreu on a one-year, $14MM deal, and that's what this amounts to.  Abreu would be much easier to trade than Johnny Damon, if Cashman wants to take that route.
