White Sox MiLB Report: Six Prospects Ranked in MLB Pipeline Top 100
Luis Robert-#40 Ranked Prospect
Robert hasn’t been able to showcase his true potential in the minors as he dealt with various injuries over the past two years. When he does get a chance to play, however, he shows just why the Sox signed him as International free agent back in 2017.
The 21-year-old outfielder played just 50 total games last season. He didn’t make his season debut until June 5 with Low-A Kannapolis. In 50 combined games with Kannapolis, Winston-Salem and with the AZL White Sox, Robert hit .269 with 11 doubles, 15 stolen bases, and 17 RBIs.
Robert could start this upcoming season with Winston-Salem and possibly end the year with Birmingham or even Charlotte. The native Cuban will need to remain healthy as his progression through the minors has been stalled the past two years due to injuries. If Robert can avoid getting injured, he could also improve his prospect ranking going into 2020.
