Luis Robert injury timeline has White Sox searching for replacement
According to a recent report from Jesse Rogers of ESPN, the Chicago White Sox will be without starting center fielder Luis Robert for much longer than expected. Rogers pointed out on Monday afternoon that Robert has been diagnosed with a Grade 3 strain of his hip flexor, which means that the up-and-coming outfielder has indeed suffered a tear.
As a result, Robert will not be able to resume any baseball-related activities for at least the next 12-to-16 weeks.
“Best-case scenario, Luis Robert is back from his torn hip flexor in late August,” Jeff Passan of ESPN added. “It’s going to take at least a few weeks to get ramped back up once he can get back into the swing of things. An awful break for the White Sox, who will explore acquiring a replacement.”
