White Sox centerfielder Luis Robert suffered a leg injury while running out a groundball in the first inning of Sunday’s game and it doesn’t look good.

Here’s a video of the play:

The White Sox announced that Robert suffered a right hip flexor strain and the x-rays came back negative. That designation provides a bit of relief given how much pain Robert looked to be when exiting the field.

Robert has been an extremely bright spot for the White Sox through the first month of the season, slashing .309/.353/.457 with one home run, eight RBIs, and a 132 OPS+.

Robert’s ailment only adds to the White Sox outfield injury troubles. Eloy Jimenez suffered a torn left pectoral muscle at the end of Spring Training, which will keep him out until the August-September range. Adam Engel is still working his way back from a strained hamstring also suffered near the end of Spring Training. He suffered a setback in his rehab, but the team does expect him to return in May.

Check back for further updates as they become available.
