The White Sox activated Luis Robert from the 10-day IL on Tuesday.
Robert won't start on Tuesday but could play Wednesday, per reports. He has missed time with some amorphous "dizziness" without much explanation, so hopefully, he's good to go. Those in weekly leagues should get him back in your lineups even though he won't play on Tuesday.
Luis Robert is set to take batting practice Tuesday as he continues to work his was back from landing on the IL with blurred vision.
Robert is slashing .301/.334/.461 with 12 home runs, 54 RBIs, and 11 stolen bases. The 24-year-old landing on the IL in mid July was a big blow for the White Sox and fantasy managers. Look for the White Sox to provide a further update soon on Robert’s rehab assignment.
White Sox outfielder Luis Robert (blurred vision) was expected to begin his rehab assignment with the Triple-A Charlotte Knights on Friday. Instead, he's dealing with cold symptoms and won't be in the starting lineup. He should return to action and play center field on Saturday.
Robert has been on the injured list since July 19, meaning he is now eligible to return whenever the White Sox deem him ready. The talented outfielder owns a .301/.334/.461 slash line with 12 homers, 54 RBI, 13 walks, 62 strikeouts, and 11 stolen bases through 74 games this season.
Luis Robert will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Charlotte on Thursday.
Robert has been on the 10-day injured list since July 22 (retroactive to July 19) with blurred vision. It was reported on Wednesday that he wouldn't return when first eligible but has obviously progressed well enough to begin playing again. Barring any setbacks, Robert could be back with the White Sox by early-to-mid August.
White Sox manager Tony La Russa provided an update on Luis Robert's progress. According to the Chicago Sun Times, he is not likely to return when first eligible Friday.
La Russa was quoted saying ‘‘The IL date is Friday, but he (Robert) hasn’t played much, so first things first. When is he cleared to really compete and then what’s the smart thing to do? Hope for the best.’’ That certainly does not sound like a positive update. This situation is worth monitoring going forward.
