Chicago White Sox superstar, Luis Robert, had an interesting Instagram post on Sunday.
Luis Robert did a lot of sweet things for the Chicago White Sox in 2020. They made the playoffs for the first time in 12 years, showed the world they are in this to win this and saw Luis Robert become a star. He is one of the best young players in all of baseball and the White Sox are hoping he will be there for a very long time. This is the type of player that you build your organization around.
Well, Robert is one in a long list of Cuban White Sox greats. They have a very rich history with Cuban Baseball and it goes all the way back to Minnie Minoso. It was further helped by Jose Abreu. Now, guys like Luis Robert and Yasmani Grandal amongst others grace the black and white uniform and help this team be very good.
Luis Robert put something on his Instagram that might excite White Sox fans. It is clear that their pipeline to great Cuban baseball players is going to work out again because Robert’s post indicates that they are going to have Oscar Colas on their team in the coming years. The post reads over a picture of Colas: “Proximo Cubano en White Sox” which means that he is the next Cuban with the White Sox. You might also remember the time that Yoan Moncada, Tim Anderson, and Luis Robert all followed him on Instagram on the same day.
They are already using all of their international money on Yoelqui Cespedes, another Cuban player, so Colas might have to wait until 2022’s signing date. Cespedes is currently the number one international free agent that is going to sign with a team so the White Sox are going to be lucky to have him. Adding Colas a year later, as Robert suggests, would really be nice.
The interesting thing about Colas is his position. He is actually, in some people’s eyes, capable of being a two-way player like Shohei Ohtani. He can pitch or be an outfielder/hitter which is something that is so uncommon in Major League Baseball. You have to wonder if the White Sox will allow that if they sign him or try to get him to focus on one or the other. Either way, this would be a great signing and one we should all hope happens.
