128. . CF. Chicago White Sox. Luis Robert. 7. player

Batting seventh and playing left field, number 88, Luis Robert! With a legend like Patrick Kane wearing 88 in Chicago for all these years, Luis Robert has a lot to live up to with that number. He has the makeup of a guy that looks like he can do just that. This kid has the same amount of hype that Moncada and Jimenez had but he seems to be a mix of both players. He is a true five-tool player that the White Sox should see become a legit superstar.

When you have a kid like this batting seventh, you have something great cooking. Everyone hitting ahead of him has proven that they can be elite hitters so he is going to have some tremendous opportunity to do some damage. There is also a good chance that he is in the middle of the order one day and it might not take that long. He has the potential to compete with Moncada and Jimenez as the best hitters on the team.

He also has a chance to be a premier defensive center fielder. This dude can cover 60 yards either way and makes it look easy. His right and left fielders are going to love having him out there because he is going to make things easy for them. There is no doubt that if he puts all of these things together once the games count for real, he will become one of the best players in the world.
