Not only is Luis Robert going to be on this team from day one, but he is also going to be one of their best players. The ceiling on this kid is so high and the White Sox are so lucky to have him. We don’t know for absolutely sure if he will have the pop of Eloy Jimenez or the hitting of Yoan Moncada but there is a chance he does both of those things better than those guys. He is a five-tool player that has such a bright future.
Robert is going to play centerfield for the White Sox on Opening Day and he is going to be one of their most impactful hitters. Where in the lineup he bats remains to be seen but he should be in a spot where he makes an impact. He is going to have guys ahead of him that are brilliant hitters. He is joining a much better lineup than most of the prospects before him did so that should be even better.
When the White Sox signed him as an international free agent, they knew they would be getting a great player. They probably didn’t even realize that he was this good back then. He is a big dude that can do everything well. If he was a defensive end in football, nobody would be surprised. We are glad he chose baseball because he will be on the White Sox for a long time.
