Luis Robert
22-Year-Old OutfielderOF
Chicago White Sox AAA
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Robert has impressive physical tools, but his stock has dipped since the White Sox committed $52 million to sign him in 2017. A left thumb injury erased his first two months of 2018. He was eased back with a two-week Sally League assignment before getting promoted to the Carolina League, where his age and pedigree suggested he belonged. Robert re-injured his thumb after just nine games with Winston-Salem and did not return until early August. The only level where he has ever been a below league-average hitter (81 wRC+) was the only level (High-A) where he was age-appropriate. In fact, his only two home runs in 68 stateside games came in the hitter-friendly Arizona Fall League, where he slashed .324/.367/.432 with a 13:5 K:BB and five steals in 18 games. He has tools (plus power, plus speed) that are tough to give up on, but the odds seem long that he will hit for a high average while displaying that 25-25 upside in the big leagues.

Robert went 4-for-5 with a double, a triple, a walk and a stolen base Tuesday in Triple-A Charlotte's 15-1 win over Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
Both of the top two high-level prospects in the Chicago system enjoyed productive nights, as infielder Nick Madrigal also rapped out four hits of his own. After his latest monstrous performance at the plate, Robert now maintains a .315/.372/.629 slash line through his first 28 games at Triple-A.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
The final impact Cuban prospect to sign under the old international rules, Robert received a $26 million bonus from the White Sox, resulting in a $52 million commitment after the overage tax. A lean, athletic 6-foot-3 center fielder, Robert hadn't played competitively for about a year when he signed, so he was eased into pro ball in the Dominican Summer League. The 20-year-old's production should be essentially thrown out, as the talent disparity between Robert and the rest of the DSL would be akin to sending an established major leaguer to Double-A for 28 games. Evaluators agree that he is a plus runner with premium bat speed that could lead to plus power. However, there are conflicting reports about how he projects as a hitter. Some think he will hit for a relatively high average with good on-base skills, while others think his swing may need to be overhauled if he is to make enough contact against upper-level pitching. He is an extreme upside gamble in dynasty leagues. Robert is expected to be assigned to Low-A or High-A.
