White Sox prospect Luis Robert to miss six weeks with thumb sprain

White Sox prospect Luis Robert to miss six weeks with thumb sprain

It's a moderate grade-2 ligament sprain.

Robert's thumb will be immobilized for about six weeks, and Robert will be able to return in 10 weeks, according to general manager Rick Hahn.

Luis Robert's grand slam against Cincinnati is one of the great moments of this year's Spring Training. The outfielder sustained the injury on Wednesday after sliding into second base during a Cactus League game against the Reds, and is now scheduled to miss anywhere from 6-10 weeks as he works his way back to the field.

Robert was expected to open the season at Class A Kannapolis or Winston-Salem.

Robert, 20, was enjoying his first spring training with the club prior to the incident.

"I didn't put my hand in the right way", he said through translator Billy Russo. But Hahn said they got enough of a glimpse to see what they have.

Raiders expected to make 'strong push' to sign Doug Martin
Oakland drafted Ellis out of Louisiana Tech, and he has started 41 of his 60 games so far in his National Football League career. Ellis signed with the Raiders for three more seasons, as he looks to continue to get better as a player.

Robert said he didn't have his hand in the right position on the slide attempt.

"What I liked most about this is the opportunity to be part of the major league organization, major league team and be around major league players", Robert said. Robert will require patience with his performance and might not get up to the height of his powers until August at this rate, and he'll probably draw gasps of concern every time he dives or slides in the near future. "It wasn't until the next day, I was pretty sore".

Robert had a meniscus injury past year and rolled his ankle in a home plate collision.

"Hopefully, we're getting the bad luck out of the way early in his career".

Hahn called Robert's string of injuries "fluky".

"They told me don't get insane, don't get frustrated", he said. "Just giving me a lot of support". Luckily, there are ways for the Sox to make up for what they're losing from the first part of the minor league season, and Robert's visa status will not affect his postseason plans. Or, if the Sox really want to get Robert experience playing stateside and facing prospect arms that he will face in the majors, we could be treated to the sight of Robert in the offense-happy Arizona Fall League. "This was my first time and it was wonderful for me".
