The Chicago White Sox are rolling this spring. Luis Robert continues to impress while the team continues to show that they can be really good.
The Chicago White Sox have been rolling this Spring. A lot of positivity surrounds this team right now and it is great to see as fans. They have many great players who were so sweet in 2019. Yoan Moncada, Tim Anderson, and Eloy Jimenez were all even better than expected during that season which has people wondering what’s next.
One guy who might be able to join them in making a big impact is Luis Robert. He went into yesterday’s game against the Kansas City Royals with a remarkable .375 spring average. He then had one hit and one run scored in three at-bats in this game against the Royals. It is unclear if he will play later today against the Cincinnati Reds but he is definitely having a great start.
The White Sox organization clearly believes in Robert. They gave him a pretty lucrative deal before ever playing a single Major League Baseball game. Well, Spring Training means nothing in a lot of people’s minds but he is off to a great start. He may struggle once the season starts and the games count but he has all of the tools to be able to adjust.
If he is able to figure it out during the season, he could end up being a rookie of the year candidate. There is a lot of hype around him and so far he is living up to it. He has people saying he is the “next Mike Trout” which is probably the ultimate compliment in the baseball world. It isn’t fair to anyone to assume he’ll be quite that good but a superstar player is certainly in play for him. He is a five-tool player which should help the White Sox win a lot of games.
Luis Robert is going to get a lot of shine this season. People want to watch this guy play. It is refreshing to have yet another player with that sort of hype coming into the organization. He continues to shine in all areas of the game and hopefully, he keeps it up.
