White Sox MiLB Report: Luis Robert Returns to Winston-Salem
White Sox prospect returned from the disabled list for Winston-Salem in the team’s victory on Tuesday night. The Dash are 23 games above .500.
Luis Robert, the Chicago White Sox third-ranked prospect, returned from the disabled list on Tuesday night with High-A Winston-Salem. Robert had been sidelined since July 1 when he was placed on the disabled list with a thumb injury.
In the Dash’s 3-2 win over the Myrtle Beach Pelicans, Robert went 2-for-4 with a strikeout. Robert appeared in five games with the AZL White Sox before returning to Winston-Salem. He joins a team that will appear in the postseason and is now 23 games above .500 with a 68-45 record.
With many of the Sox top prospects in Winston-Salem, Robert could help the Dash have success in the postseason. However, he will need to finish the season healthy as he’s missed a lot of time due to various injuries.

Since signing with the Sox in 2017 as an International Free Agent, Robert has appeared in just 55 games. He has appeared in 27 games this season but missed a lot of development. With his various injuries, Robert’s progress could have potentially stalled. The young outfielder is still raw and will need more development before he’s ready to make an impact in the Majors.
Eloy Jimenez Not In Lineup
The Sox top prospect wasn’t in the lineup for Triple-A Charlotte as he continued to experience flu-like symptoms. Jimenez also missed action this past Sunday. Many Sox fans are awaiting a potential promotion for the 21-year-old outfielder. While some fans want to see a promotion soon for Jimenez, there are others who believe the Sox should wait until next year to promote the team’s top prospect.
With Jimenez out of action on Tuesday, the Knights dropped their series opener to the Syracuse Chiefs 2-0. Spencer Adams didn’t get any run support from the Knights offense as he posted a quality start. Adams pitched 6.1 innings while allowing two earned runs with three strikeouts. He did, however, walk five batters.
