Because the White Sox occasionally throw me a bone and put newsworthy developments in my own backyard, Luis Robert opened his rehab stint with the Charlotte Knights in Nashville on Thursday. He served as Charlotte’s DH and went 1-for-5 with two strikeouts.
Rick Hahn said Robert’s lightheadedness/blurred vision issue affected him more in the field than at the plate, and the results bore that out. The condition interrupted a hot streak at the plate, but also some uncharacteristically ragged defense in center field. Hopefully I’ll get to see him play some outfield tonight, and I’ll relay anything worth noting.
