6. Luis Robert – CF
Luis Robert’s spot in the batting order is the hardest to predict. He is so good at baseball that you can justify putting him at any spot in the lineup. He can hit for power and contact and is also extremely fast. However, this is only going to be his second MLB season and his first full season so he is best suited for the six-spot. When he reaches his ceiling, he is going to be the best player on the White Sox and probably a bit higher in the order but sixth is good for now.
Robert is amazing in centerfield which adds to his premier player status but his offense is what will really be noted throughout his career. He was brilliant in the first half of the 2020 short season. He did slump down the stretch but was amazing again in the playoffs. His efforts earned him a second-place finish in the rookie of the year voting. He also earned a Gold Glove as a rookie so you know how special he is out there in centerfield.
Robert will be hitting behind guys like Jimenez, Grandal, and Abreu which should bode well for him. It is going to be interesting to see how he comes out in year two but other teams in the American League are probably less excited. Rober hitting sixth may not last very long, but it is the perfect spot for him going into 2021.
