The Chicago White Sox have had some elite prospects come through lately, but none made a splash in a debut of any kind like this one.
The Chicago White Sox are sending so many great players through the minors that they expect to make the big leagues someday. They’ve had guys like Yoan Moncada, Dylan Cease, and Eloy Jimenez roll through and get to the Majors.
Next on the list is Luis Robert. He has risen through quickly and made his Triple-A debut on Thursday night. You could not have asked for a better debut from any player at any level. The transition from AA to AAA isn’t easy at all and Robert made it look as such. Things aren’t going to be that easy every single game but it is good to see he can surely handle the next step.
Robert led off the game for the Charlotte Knights and absolutely raked. He went 3/5 with seven RBIs. He also hit two home runs in the game as well. It was a magical start for him offensively in Triple-A. Those 7 RBIs allowed the Charlotte Knights to win the game 15-12 against the Gwinnett Stripers in Charlotte. It was so good to see another White Sox future star take another step towards making an impact for this organization.
Now that he had just one game of success in this game, people are going to start speculating and debating when he is going to make the jump to the South Side. There is still more that Rick Hahn and his staff are going to want to see out of him before they make that decision. They were patient with Eloy Jimenez and it is paying off really nicely!
There is no reason to rush this kid. All that matters is that Robert is ready for the first pitch in the 2020 season. If he has a good start in the Major Leagues next year and everybody else takes yet another step, this is going to be a very good team. Keep an eye on Luis Robert moving forward because this is just the beginning.
