What did Jo Adell go for?

Speaking of hype ... the contract seems to have removed all concerns over whether Robert would get the PT to pile up the counting stats we're expecting out of him.

$29 in CBS before ever facing major league pitching.

I see Eugene has already done that.

Anyone else that you want to see, just holler. As long as we identify and almost invariably link to the sources, I can't imagine they object.

Hey Alex, would you mind posting what BA had to say about Julio Rodriguez? I'm really interested but don't have access. :o(

Skinny: Robert tore up the minors in 2019 and hit a career-high 32 homers. He smashed through the Carolina League before crushing Southern League pitching for 56 games and made it all the way to Triple-A Charlotte, where he tacked on another 16 homers in a hitter-friendly home ballpark. The outfielder also recorded a 30-30 season, possibly the first of many for the rising star.

Last year Robert was seventh on Baseball America's list of prospects who "struggled with injuries who we're hoping have a healthy new year."

7. Luis Robert, OF, White Sox

Robert combines exciting upside with swing-and-miss risk that we've pointed out since he was still in Cuba. That risk showed up more than the upside did in Robert's first season with the White Sox last year, although I think it would be a mistake to take too much away from Robert's 2018 struggles without accounting for the context of his season.

Robert had been in a layoff from competitive baseball since leaving Cuba, then while adjusting to a new country, he never got an opportunity to get his timing back at the plate. He tore a ligament in his thumb that kept him out the first two months of the season, then played for a little less than a month before re-injuring that thumb and missing another month. So Robert played just 50 games between two Class A levels last year, never staying on the field for more than one month at a time. Robert's profile still includes contact and pitch recognition risk, but he also just needs to stay healthy and get a fair opportunity to get his timing back.

Great news for Robert and White Sox fans.

It looks like we won't be waiting two weeks before seeing him in CF for the ChiSox. Outfielder Luis Robert and the Chicago White Sox are in agreement on a six-year, $50 million contract that includes two club options, sources familiar with the deal tell ESPN."

Sickels' #3:

3) Luis Robert, OF, Chicago White Sox, Grade A: Previously No. 3; monster season, hitting .328/.376/.624 with 32 homers, 36 steals at High-A/Double-A/Triple-A; some strike zone issues remain but enormously talented; no change in status since last report.
