Sox Robert To Miss Significant Time
The Chicago White Sox got more bad news on Monday as it was announced that CF Luis Robert had suffered a full tear of his right hip flexor and would be out anywhere from 12 to 16 weeks, meaning Robert’s season may be over. This injury is yet another blow to the White Sox OF that was already without starting LF Eloy Jimenez who suffered a season ending shoulder injury at the tail end of spring training. Adam Engels also is still out with a strained hamstring so the Sox are being forced to cobble together a starting OF that will include the likes of Billy Hamilton and Leury Garcia. The Robert injury may force the Sox into the market for an OF at the trade deadline and one possible target may be the Chicago Cubs Kris Bryant who is playing on an expiring contract.
