Luis Robert Will Be Out For Ten Weeks With A Moderate Thumb Ligament Sprain


This morning, the White Sox announced on their social media page, that Luis Robert has been diagnosed with a moderate sprain of the ligament in his left thumb. Robert suffered the injury after sliding into second base on Wednesday. His hand will be immobilized for six weeks, and he is expected to return in ten weeks.

It’s an unfortunate turn of events for Robert, who just recently hit a grand slam to give the White Sox a 14-12 victory over the Cincinnati Reds.

Both Luis Robert and Jake Burger, who have suffered terrible injuries, are top prospects in the system. Does this mean that the White Sox should consider sitting out these guys before Yoan Moncada or Eloy Jimenez get hurt? There is no sure answer for that, but the White Sox should definitely consider it now after losing two of their top prospects in Spring Training.
