The White Sox transferred Robert (hip) to the 60-day injured list Thursday.
Though Robert is electing to forgo surgery after he was diagnosed May 3 with a Grade 3 right hip flexor strain, the outfielder is still facing a recovery timeline of at least eight weeks. As such, the move to the 60-day IL won't have much effect on his return date. Instead, the White Sox made the transaction mainly for the purpose of opening up a spot on the 40-man roster for reliever Ryan Burr, whose contract was selected from Triple-A Charlotte.
Robert (hip) has opted against surgery and an update on his recovery will come in eight weeks, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
The decision to not undergo surgery, but rather rest and rehabilitate will not affect the timeline for Robert's return. The torn right hip flexor interrupted a strong start to the season for the center fielder, who hit .316 with one home run and four steals in 95 at-bats.
The White Sox placed Robert (hip) on the 10-day injured list Tuesday.
The transaction is a formality after Robert was revealed Monday to have suffered a Grade 3 right hip flexor strain, an injury that will likely sideline him for 12-to-16 weeks. The White Sox are expected to move Robert to the 60-day IL when they need to clear a spot on the 40-man roster. Infielder Danny Mendick was called up from the alternate training site to swap in for Robert active roster, but the team could ultimately turn to veteran Brian Goodwin to replace the 23-year-old in the outfield. Goodwin agreed to a minor-league deal with the White Sox on Tuesday and could be called up once he gets in a few games at Triple-A Charlotte.
Robert was diagnosed with a Grade 3 strain of his right hip flexor Monday, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.
A Grade 3 strain means a complete tear. Robert won't take part in any baseball activities for a minimum of 12 weeks and will have to build back up into game shape after that, meaning he'll miss the majority of the season. The White Sox have yet to decide whether he'll undergo surgery or rest and rehab instead. Leury Garcia lines up to play an increased role in center field until Robert returns.
Robert (hip) will miss extended time due to his injury, Bruce Levine of 670TheScore.com reports.
Robert is headed to the 10-day injured list after he sustained a right hip strain while legging out an infield single in Sunday's game against Cleveland. He should miss more than the minimum amount of time, and the team is reportedly considering surgery. Leury Garcia should see increased playing time in center field while Robert and Adam Engel (hamstring) are sidelined.
Manager Tony La Russa said Sunday that Robert (hip) "will definitely go on the IL," James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
Robert appeared to have sustained a serious non-contact injury while legging out an infield single in Sunday's game against Cleveland, and he was diagnosed with a right hip flexor strain. The 23-year-old will undergo additional testing Monday but will miss time. Leury Garcia should see increased time in center field while Robert is sidelined.
The White Sox announced that Robert was removed from Sunday's game against Cleveland due to a right hip flexor strain, Bruce Levine of 670TheScore.com reports.
Robert appeared to have sustained a serious non-contact injury after he crumbled to the ground in a heap while legging out an infield single, but initial X-rays cleared him of any structural damage. The White Sox will send Robert in for additional testing Monday, but for the time being, the team is viewing the young outfielder as day-to-day. Leury Garcia would likely serve as the primary replacement in center field if Robert ends up requiring a stint on the injured list.
Robert was removed from Sunday's game against Cleveland after he suffered an apparent right leg injury while running out an infield single in the first inning, LaMond Pope of the Chicago Tribune reports.
After crossing first base, Robert went down to the ground in a heap and was unable to put any weight on his right leg while being helped off the field, according to James Fegan of The Athletic. Given the non-contact nature of his injury, the White Sox will hope that he suffered from an untimely cramp, but if not, Robert could be at risk of an extended absence. Expect the White Sox to provide a follow-up note on Robert's health later Sunday.
Robert is starting in center field and batting second in the second game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Tigers.
Robert has been out since Sunday due to the league's health and safety protocols, but he never tested positive for COVID-19. As a result, his absence will be limited to only a few games. Billy Hamilton will likely lose playing time as a result of Robert's return.
Robert will sit for the first game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Tigers.
Robert had been out since Sunday due to the health and safety protocols after feeling flu-like symptoms, but he continued to test negative for COVID-19 and was able to return from the injured list Thursday. He won't be asked to play two games in one day right away, but he'll likely be back in the lineup for the nightcap. Billy Hamilton starts in center field in his absence.
Robert (illness) was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list Thursday.
Robert was in the COVID-19 protocols as a precautionary measure after he reported flu-like symptoms Monday night. However, he continued to test negative for COVID-19 and will be available for Thursday's twin bill against Detroit.
Robert (illness) is expected back in the lineup Thursday against the Tigers, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
The White Sox played things safe by putting Robert through the COVID protocols after he reported flu-like symptoms Monday night. He has been testing negative for the virus while quarantining, so it sounds like he will only miss a couple games.
Robert, who was placed on the injured list as a precaution after dealing with flu-like symptoms Monday night, is feeling better Tuesday but will need to go through the proper protocols before returning, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
Earlier this month, Dylan Cease went on the injured list for a couple days as a precaution but was soon activated and barely missed any time. That could be an outcome in this instance as well, assuming Robert feels better and tests negative for coronavirus. He should be considered day-to-day for now.
Robert was placed on the injured list Tuesday with flu-like symptoms, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.
He called the team's medical staff Monday night reporting flu-like symptoms and will be placed on the IL as a precaution. The team is hopeful that his symptoms will resolve quickly so that he can clear the testing protocols and return to the active roster soon. Luis Gonzalez was called up earlier in the day and will serve as short-term outfield depth.
Robert went 3-for-4 with a double, a stolen base and a run scored in Tuesday's 8-5 win over Cleveland.
Robert posted his first three-hit game and seventh multi-hit outing in 18 contests. He's put to rest any thoughts that last year's September swoon would carry over into 2021. Robert, who has a 1.131 OPS over the last seven, is slashing .310/.351/.493 for the season. The stolen bag was his third, putting him on pace to steal 27 bases over the course of 162 games.
Robert went 1-for-4 with a double and an RBI in Monday's loss to Boston.
Robert handed his club a quick 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning with an RBI double to left field, but the Red Sox would respond by putting up six runs in the bottom half and ultimately cruised to an 11-4 victory. The 23-year-old has been hot at the dish over his last six contests, going 9-for-23 with four extra-base hits, two RBI and a stolen base.
Robert went 2-for-4 with a stolen base in Saturday's loss against the Red Sox.
Robert continues to make an impact and has recorded three straight two-hit appearances while hitting safely in five of his last six contests. As if that wasn't enough, he also stole his second base of the campaign. The young outfielder has reached base in nine of his last 10 games but could do more hitting toward the bottom of the order now that Tim Anderson is back from his hamstring injury.
Robert went 2-for-3 with a walk, a triple and a run scored in Thursday's 4-2 loss to Cleveland.
The White Sox plated a first-inning run then did nothing until the ninth inning, when Robert came home after hitting his first triple of the season. With the return of Tim Anderson from a hamstring injury, Robert was dropped from second to seventh in the order.
Robert went 2-for-5 with a double, an RBI and a run scored in Wednesday's 8-0 win over Cleveland.
Wednesday's ground-rule double gives Robert four two-baggers among his last five hits. He's flown under the radar thus far in 2021 with a nondescript .245/.296/.408 slash line and just one steal over 12 games. The second-year outfielder has primarily hit out of the two-hole, reaching base safely in 11 of 12 contests.
Robert went 2-for-4 with a home run, a single, a walk, two RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's 10-4 win over the Mariners.
Robert finally showed off his power that fantasy managers have been waiting to see when he destroyed a hanging breaking ball over the left-field fence to break a 3-3 tie in the fifth. The 23-year-old has registered a hit in five of six games this season but is still lacking discipline at the plate, as he also has nine strikeouts over that same span.
