Abreu is supposed to be a Viciedo-type with a plus bat for both average and power (7/8 in scout speak) and would have a much higher ceiling than Viciedo, who's only quality attribute is power. Plus he's 26 (if you can believe any Cuban players' age) and could step into the big leagues right away.
Looks like a smart move if the Sox land him.
