Chicago White Sox: Another Luis Robert update
The Chicago White Sox know what they have in the minors and all of the great talents are led by this particular outfielder.
You know all about the Chicago White Sox and their rebuild. It is going really great with all things considered. Many of the young players that they’ve acquired throughout the process have graduated to the Major Leagues and are making significant impacts. There is still a long way to go before it all gels together, and their prospect pool is now led by Cuban outfielder, Luis Robert.
Robert just made his Triple-A debut last week for the Charlotte Knights and has been incredible. He got off to an amazing start in his first game with the club and has just been so awesome since. He looks like a player who can make an impact at the Major League level really soon. They might give him a look in a White Sox uniform, but they might do what they did with Eloy Jimenez and just hold him off until the following year.
Whatever road they decide to take should lead to Robert being a part of the team full time. He is dominated AAA ball through his first five games. He is 9 for 21, a .429 average, 2 home runs, and eight RBIs. He has 203 total bases so far this season and that is the fifth-best number in all of Minor League Baseball. He has been nothing short of exceptional so far in 2019. He is making a case for himself to be a September call up and a full-time player in 2020.
Sox fans have been waiting for the 2020 season since they declared a rebuild at the end of 2016’s disastrous season. They are almost there, and Robert could be in the middle of it all. This rebuild seems to have been quicker than a usual rebuild thanks to the fact that they had a hall of fame pitcher in his prime (Chris Sale) to trade away and getting a max return for Jose Quintana from the Chicago Cubs. The signing of Luis Robert as an international free agent is a little more under the radar but it won’t be when he gets to the Majors and dominates.
White Sox fans should be very excited because Robert is going to make the middle of this order very dangerous and fun to watch. Once they get their starting pitching on track they will most definitely be one of the best teams in all of baseball and that could start as early as next season.
