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.
Big news today for #WhiteSox: Per team, Luis Robert “medically cleared to increase his level of baseball activities . . . in Glendale, Ariz.” Robert could begin minor league injury rehab assignment by late July. Optimism is high for 2nd half return. @MLBNetwork @MLB
