Chicago White Sox: Luis Robert’s historic start to his career
Luis Robert is already off to an all-time great start for the Chicago White Sox.
The Chicago White Sox have a long history of having good players. Not all of those great players had a great amount of team success but they were good individually nonetheless. Luis Robert is hoping to provide both great team and individual success during his time with the White Sox. Well, he is off to a great start. The goal is to win a World Series and there is a good chance that f they do win it eventually, Robert will be their best player en-route.
Entering the game last night, Robert was the seventh player in White Sox history to have a hit in nine of his first ten career games. It is a very impressive run for him and it made it even better when he had two more hits in game number 11. That makes it ten games out of his first 11 with a hit and those are some insane statistics.
Robert was expected by many to at least struggle a little bit. Even superstars like Yoan Moncada and Eloy Jimenez struggled in different ways to start their careers. Jimenez couldn’t lay off junk pitches for a good month and it took Moncada a whole year to adjust to Major League pitching. With Robert, he hasn’t shown any sign of struggling.
In his first 11 games, his hit total is up to 16 hits. He has a slash line of .364/.429/.568 with three home runs and 6 RBIs. He has also walked five times so he can get on base a whole bunch of ways. These are some incredible statistics for a guy that hasn’t taken a Major League at-bat before this year. He is already leading the way on a team with a lot of offensive talent.
Luis Robert is also one of only two players on the team (Jose Abreu) to play in all 11 games for them. It shows an early sign of his ability to stay in the lineup and be productive all of the time. He is a leader on the team already in a lot of ways and people should be scared that he has only scratched the surface of his potential.
