Good news for the Chicago White Sox heading into the second half of the season. Outfielder Luis Robert was authorized to step up his baseball activities , according to a report by MLB Network journalist Jon Morosi.

The next step in the Cuban player’s rehabilitation would be a minor league assignment, something that could happen sometime in July.

Robert suffered a hip injury after playing 25 games this season, hitting .316 and OBP of .359, with 1 home run and 8 RBIs.

The return of the outfielder will be an important boost for the White Sox who currently rank first in the AL Central, with a record of 45 wins and 32 losses.
