White Sox Minor Keys: Aug. 12, 2018

Luis Robert has wasted little time finding his rhythm at Winston-Salem following a thumb injury

For all the time Luis Robert has missed, it might not make any dent on his timetable.

Robert went 2-for-4 with a triple on Sunday, and Our Man in Winston-Salem Jonathan Lee captured video of Robert’s easy path around the bases.

Robert also added an RBI single his second time up. Throw in a leaping catch at the wall and a diving catch in center field, not to mention three stolen bases in three attempts, and Robert’s shown the breadth of his game in his first four games back with the Dash. He’s 4-for-14 with a triple, walk and four strikeouts in his first four games back at High-A. If that’s what he looks like rusty, it bodes well for the last several weeks of the season.

Hey Lou Bob, we’re still waiting for that first bomb

Eagle Bones

This has probably been discussed already, but we’re likely to see Robert in the AFL after all of this missed time, right? Anyone else of importance that’s likely? Dunning and Hansen (assuming health)?

Josh Nelson

On the Hit and Run Show (670 the Score) a couple of weeks ago, Chris Getz hinted at Luis Robert and Zack Burdi getting time in AFL.

Eagle Bones

Ah yeah, Burdi would def make sense.


Given the time he missed during Oregon State’s season, Nick Madrigal is a possibility.
