Robert (hamstring) went 1-for-4 with a run scored in Monday's Arizona Fall League game. Robert is good to go after missing a little more than a week with a minor hamstring injury. The 21-year-old prospect is slashing .286/.318/.286 with a pair of RBI and seven runs scored through five games with the Glendale Desert Dogs.
Robert suffered a hamstring injury Friday and should be considered day-to-day moving forward, James Fegan of The Athletic reports. Robert was forced to exit Friday's Arizona Fall League contest after picking up the injury running to first base. Fortunately, he appears to have avoided any sort of major injury. Look for him to return to action in the near future.
Robert left Friday's Arizona Fall League game after beating out a fielder's choice in the seventh inning. It's unclear what kind of injury Robert is dealing with, though it appears to be some sort of leg issue. The outfield prospect was able to leave the field under his own power after trainers came out to check on him. This is another unfortunate event for Robert after he missed a decent chunk of time in 2018 due to thumb injuries.
Robert (thumb) returned to action with High-A Winston-Salem on Tuesday. Robert hit the disabled list with a thumb sprain in early July, an injury which was expected to cause him to miss 4-to-8 weeks. He'll end up falling right in the middle of that time frame. In 26 games this season split between the AZL White Sox, Low-A Kannapolis, and Winston-Salem, the young outfielder has his .312/.375/.419 with eight steals.
White Sox director of player development Chris Getz said Sunday that Robert (thumb) will likely be activated from the 7-day disabled list and rejoin High-A Winston-Salem at some point during the current week, James Fegan of The Athletic Chicago reports. Getz noted that Robert's thumb is completely healed and the outfielder is merely getting in some extra at-bats with the White Sox's Arizona League affiliate before rejoining Winston-Salem. Over his five rehab games, the 21-year-old has spent two games in the outfield and three as a designated hitter, going a collective 7-for-18 with three stolen bases.
