Arizona Fall League recap: Oct. 16, 2018

Glendale drops to 0-6 on the season

In his roundup of White Sox prospects participating in the Arizona Fall League, Friend of the Podcast Jim Callis delivered some good news regarding Luis Robert:

Robert collected hits in his first four AFL starts for the Glendale Desert Dogs before tweaking a hamstring while running to first base on Oct. 12. His latest injury isn’t considered serious and should cost him only a couple of games.

If Robert can take advantage of steady playing time when he returns, he knows what he wants to do:

“My goal down here is just to perfect my swing,” Robert said. “That way I can have better results here in the United States. I was coming in and out of the zone really quick with my bat. What we’re trying to work on is that my bat stays on the plane a little longer so I can stay with the ball a little longer, maybe more with the secondary pitches.”
