White Sox agree to deal with Cuban outfielder Luis Robert


Tyler Danish worked around six walks while pitching five innings in his first major league win, and the Chicago White Sox beat the Detroit Tigers 3-0 on Saturday in the first game of a doubleheader. The White Sox, meanwhile, rank 28th in the majors in this category, drawing a walk every 14.3 PA.

The White Sox used a mix of their Cuban club tradition and new-school technology to lure prized prospect Luis Robert.

The primary prospect in the Sale deal was Yoan Moncada, a Cuban second baseman. The White Sox will have to pay a dollar-for-dollar tax on the bonus.

Where does Robert fit in the Sox' farm system?

He'll join peers such as Moncada, and hard-throwing pitchers Michael Kopech, Lucas Giolito and Reynaldo Lopez, who have White Sox fans dreaming of a brighter future.

What kind of player is Robert?

Robert is projected as a center fielder with speed, a compact swing and power.

He had played for Ciego de Avila in Cuba's top league for the past four seasons, hitting.315 with 20 home runs, 92 RBIs and 29 steals. He is a two-time Cuban Serie Nacional champion.

General manager Rick Hahn said he's heard comparisons to Hall of Famers, first-overall draft picks, perennial MVP candidates and active All-Stars like Adam Jones and Lorenzo Cain.

"I think that the things you are seeing right now are the results of my work, especially in the cage with the hitting coach and the assistant hitting coach", he said. Luis Robert is going to be the player that his tools allow him to become and his health and development pace dictates. "In adding Luis to our organization, we feel like we have added another dynamic, potential impact talent".

With the first game of a scheduled doubleheader postponed on Friday, the Sox will makeup the game on Saturday afternoon as part of a straight doubleheader. He's headed back to the Dominican Republic to begin his development with the Sox' Dominican Summer League Team.
