      Luis Robert agreed to a long-term contract extension with the Chicago White Sox on Thursday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.The deal is worth $50 million over six years with two club options, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports. Robert advanced to Triple-A Charlotte in 2019, where he played well with a .297/.341/.634 slash line and 16 home runs over 47 games.
