Bob Kelly "Bobby" Abreu (Spanish pronunciation: , English: /əˈbreɪ.uː/; born March 11, 1974, in Turmero, Venezuela), nicknamed "El Comedulce" and also "La Luche", is a Major League Baseball left fielder for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Abreu is a two-time All-Star, and has won a Gold Glove Award and a Silver Slugger Award. He has led the league in games (twice), doubles, and triples. Through 2008, he was tenth among active ballplayers in on-base percentage (.405), and seventh in stolen bases (348).

Abreu played with the Leones del Caracas in the Venezuelan winter baseball league . He batted .283 and began to show gap power with 21 doubles and a league-record 17 triples. He also reached double figures in outfield assists for the third year in a row. After the campaign, he had rotator cuff surgery done on his right shoulder, which had periodically given him problems.

Abreu started his Major League career with the Houston Astros. He played only 74 games over two seasons. Left unprotected in the 1997 MLB Expansion Draft when Houston Astros decided to keep fellow Venezuelan outfielder Richard Hidalgo, Abreu was selected by the then Tampa Bay Devil Rays, but hours later he was traded to the Phillies for shortstop Kevin Stocker.
