Chicago White Sox outfielder Luis Robert Jr. (knee) will miss the rest of the 2023 regular season due to a mild MCL sprain in his left knee that will put him on the injured list. The White Sox are bringing up Tyler Naquin from Triple-A Charlotte in a corresponding move. Fantasy managers that invested in Robert at a relatively low cost have to be thrilled at how his season turned out in 2023. The 26-year-old Cuban managed to play in over 100 games for the first time in his career and slashed .264/.315/.542 with an .857 OPS and career-highs in home runs (38), doubles (36), RBI (80), stolen bases (20) and runs scored (90) in 145 total games and 595 plate appearances.
Chicago White Sox outfielder Luis Robert Jr. (knee) could be headed to the injured list with outfielder Tyler Naquin expected to join the team this week from Triple-A Charlotte. Robert, who has played in 145 games this year, left Sunday's game against the Boston Red Sox with a sore left knee, although it's not believed to be serious. However, with less than a week in the 2023 season, Robert would miss the rest of the year if he goes on the injured list. The 26-year-old has had a breakout season for the Pale Hose this year, slashing .264/.315/.542 with an .857 OPS while setting career-highs in home runs (38), doubles (36), RBI (80), stolen bases (20) and runs scored (90) in 595 plate appearances as a first-time All-Star.
In Chicago's rain-shortened victory over Boston on Sunday, White Sox infielder Elvis Andrus was 1-for-3 at the plate while driving in two crucial runs. Filling in for Tim Anderson at shortstop and batting in the leadoff spot, Andrus provided a two-run double off right-hander Kutter Crawford, propelling the White Sox to a 2-1 lead in a game shortened to six innings. Throughout the season, Andrus has maintained a respectable batting line of .255/.309/.364, establishing himself as a reliable and versatile asset for the team.
Chicago White Sox outfielder Luis Robert Jr. left early on Sunday due to right knee soreness. He will be evaluated further on Monday. Robert Jr. stole his 20th base of the season and may have hurt the knee during the slide. The youngster has 38 home runs on the season and has been a fantasy stud while mostly staying healthy this season. Hopefully this isn't anything serious for Robert Jr. and he can finish out the rest of the year.
Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Dylan Cease put together one of his best outings of the season versus the Boston Red Sox on Saturday. The right-hander went seven scoreless innings while striking out a season-high 11 batters in the win. Cease did end up with the no-decision, but the White Sox won the game. This game marked the fourth time this season that Cease hasn't walked a batter during his entire outing. He has certainly been through hot and cold stretches throughout the season. He'll look to finish out the season on a strong note during his final start of the regular season next week.
