Robert left Tuesday's game versus the Astros early with right leg tightness. The outfielder appeared to pull up lame while running for a fly ball in the sixth inning and was replaced in center field by Adam Engel prior to the top of the seventh. The severity of the injury is not yet known, but it is a big blow to a White Sox lineup that is facing elimination.
Robert will move up to the three hole for Game 4 of the ALDS on Tuesday against the Astros. He hit fifth in Game 1 against Lance McCullers, but he'll be bumped up a couple spots for his second matchup against the power righty, bumping Jose Abreu and Yasmani Grandal down to fourth and fifth, respectively. Robert is hitting .500 with one strikeout and two walks through 15 plate appearances this postseason.
Robert went 3-for-4 with two runs, an RBI and a walk in Friday's 9-4 loss to the Astros in Game 2 of the ALDS. Robert and the White Sox were unable to generate any extra-base hits in Game 2, but the 24-year-old had little trouble reaching base in the loss. Across his first two ALDS appearances, the outfielder has gone 5-for-9, although the White Sox will need to string together three consecutive wins if they hope to advance to the ALCS.
Robert went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and two walks in Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Tigers. Robert began the series against Detroit by going 0-for-9 with an RBI and four strikeouts across the first two games, but he hit his 13th home run of the year in the first inning of Sunday's regular-season finale. The 24-year-old started each of the final six games of the regular season and went .217 with three home runs, a double, six RBI, four runs and a stolen base during that time.
Robert went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and a solo shot in Tuesday's 7-1 win over the Reds. Robert got off to a hot start after taking Riley O'Brien to deep center field to get the White Sox on the board in the first. The 24-year-old followed that up with a two-run shot in the eighth to push Chicago's lead to 7-1. Robert now has four home runs over his last five games and has been scorching hot at the plate since his long-awaited return to the majors following an early-season hip injury. Since being activated off the injured list Aug. 9, Robert is slashing .367/.403/.645 with 11 homers, 33 RBI, 29 runs scored, a stolen base and 5:28 BB:K over 39 games. He has been absolutely raking at the plate and will look to carry it over into the postseason when it gets underway next week.
