The Chicago White Sox know that Luis Robert’s success in 2020 is pivotal to the team living up to a lot of its hype. He is off to a good start.
The Chicago White Sox are fully underway in Spring Training now. They came back and defeated the San Francisco Giants in one of their two split-squad games yesterday by a final score of 4-3. In the other game, the Cleveland Indians beat them 9-2. Most of the big boys were playing in that comeback win against the Giants which is exciting. One of those big players is Luis Robert.
Luis Robert is extremely important to the White Sox present and future. He is going into the season as the number three prospect in all of baseball. That means he has a legit chance at the rookie of the year in the American League. That would be really cool but the most important thing is that he helps the White Sox win games.
He certainly showed an ability to do so in the White Sox comeback win over the Giants. Down 3-1, Robert used his incredible speed to have a triple. He would later score to make the game 3-2 which allowed the White Sox to eventually win the game. When people talk about Robert, they talk about his power and defensive abilities. His speed is something that people are starting to realize is also elite.
It is an element to his game that can help the White Sox out tremendously, especially with some of the people protecting him in the lineup. This is a special talent that the White Sox are lucky to have. If Robert is an impact player in 2020, they are already a better team than last year just because of that alone. Add everything else they have done and the sky is the limit.
So Luis Robert has speed, power, defense, and work ethic to give him the ceiling that he has. It is so exciting to know that a player like that is there in the organization. It is fun to look forward to seeing what he can do for the rest of the Spring Training and into the regular season.
