The Chicago White Sox are a good team with a lot of good players. Luis Robert is one of those players but he feels like someone who is a little bit different. There is a special feeling you get when you see him on a baseball field. He is a big dude who has all five tools that can make up a Major League player. When a guy can run like that, field a premier position like that, and can hit the way he can, you are talking about a perennial MVP player.
The Chicago White Sox should be very excited about what this kid is going to bring.
He was the rookie of the month for the month of July/August which just happens to be the first month of his Major League career. He hit a rookie wall (offensively) for the first few weeks of September but got back on track for the final week and the postseason. That short bump in the road made him come in second for rookie of the year instead of first but he did win the Gold Glove for centerfield. That’s right, he won the Gold Glove over Mike Trout.
Robert took to his Instagram story over the last day with a picture of himself and he is looking jacked. This is a monster of a human that is athletic as a baseball player can be. He is going to be out there making a lot of plays this year and we are going to know why. It also makes complete sense how he can hit a baseball 450 feet on a regular basis because he is just so strong.
When you think about a player like Luis Robert, you imagine what it would be like to see him win the World Series with the White Sox. When they made all the trades that they did for the other prospects that have come up, it was all solidified the day that they signed Luis Robert as an international free agent. Now, he is one of the guys they are building their roster around.
Hopefully, Robert is able to help the White Sox achieve the next level one day. They don’t have to win the World Series in 2021 but they certainly need to continue taking steps towards that ultimate goal. If they do, you can bet that Robert will be a big part of it.
