Luis Robert

The Chicago White Sox have a superstar talent right now in Luis Robert.

The Chicago White Sox are going to have a very good batting order in pretty much every game that they play this season. There are studs all over the place which is one this team is a legit World Series contender as currently constructed.

As good as these other players are, nobody even comes close to Luis Robert. He is someone that could actually be an MVP caliber player when the season is all said and done. If he stays healthy, the sky is the limit for him in his career. Based on what we have seen so far in his career, he has all of the tools to be a top-ten MLB player.

In three games so far this season, he has arguably been Chicago’s best player. He plays outstanding defensive centerfield and the first three games came in Detroit where the Tigers have a huge outfield. For that reason alone, he is incredibly valuable.

His bat is really where his upside is, however, which is saying something because of how good he is in the field. Through his first three games, he leads the White Sox with five hits. He didn’t display his full power yet in Detroit’s huge stadium which might be smart because you really have to lean into one to get it out of that park.

He didn’t hit a home run there and only has one RBI. Expect him to break through in that department now that he is home. It is going to be a huge year for Robert and he is off to a great start. It is going to be so fun watching him take it to the next level.
