Luis Robert has a chance to put the Chicago White Sox on the national map.
Out of all the players on the White Sox, Luis Robert has the highest ceiling. A five-tool player with MVP caliber talent has already shown flashes of greatness during his brief time in the major league to this point.
During his rookie campaign, he took home a Gold Glove for his work in center field. He also led all rookies in RBIs, game-winning RBIs, stolen bases, and home runs. Meanwhile, he finished second in runs scored, extra-base hits, and total bases and took home the bronze in slugging percentage and OPS. Robert was also second in the entire MLB in home runs over 110 mph with 6.
During his sophomore season, he was sidelined with a torn hip flexor that cost him the majority of his season. When he returned to the lineup he was an offensive force. In September, he batted .367 with six home runs, 20 RBIs, and a .633 slugging percentage He finished the season with a .338 batting average, 13 home runs, and a .945 OPS.
Give him a healthy 162 game season and Robert has the potential but put up Mike Trout type numbers. Of course, having a badass nickname like La Pantera doesn’t hurt his cause when choosing a cover athlete.
