A quick look at a highly possible signing by the Chicago White Sox Cuban Outfielder Luis Roberts
The White Sox sent their vice president and general manager to the Dominican Republic to have a private workout with Luis Robert
The Bidding will start on the Cuban-born outfielder Luis Robert on May 20. The day marks when Robert, only 19, is eligible to sign with a major league team. The White Sox are on the top of the list to hopefully land him. Last week Kenny Williams and Rick Hahn made the trip to the Dominican Republic to have a private workout with Luis. He has also been visited by the Cardinals, Padres, A’s, Reds, and Astros. The 6’3″ 205 lb Robert would be a great fit for the White Sox according to Hahn.
“I’ve seen the publications that have had us in the mix and certainly understand why people would believe we’d be in the mix, given how nicely he could conceivably fit with not only what we’re trying to do in a rebuild but our history with similar such players.”
The White Sox have the best chance signing the player because they actually have the ability. All the other teams that worked him out are already over they bonus pools for this season. The others are already in the penalty and unable to sign players for the next two signing periods. That is really good news for the Sox to land him. Here is a look at him.
