The injury bug bites the White Sox once again as outfielder Luis Robert will be out 12-16 weeks due to a grade 3 hip flexor strain.

In a monumental blow to the Chicago White Sox, the injury bug strikes in the worst way once again. White Sox general manager Rick Hahn revealed that Luis Robert suffered a grade three strain of his hip flexor on Sunday. This designation means Robert has a complete tear, which could require surgery to fix.

On the season, Robert is slashing .316/.359/.463 with one home run and driving in eight RBIs. The White Sox are currently missing outfielders Eloy Jimenez, who suffered a torn pectoral muscle in Spring Training, and Adam Engel, who is still dealing with a hamstring injury.

Speaking of Adam Engel, he suffered a setback in his rehab. According to Hahn, Engel is now three weeks away from even beginning a rehab assignment.

The injuries the White Sox have accumulated thus far have been detrimental to the team’s success. The White Sox currently hold second place in the AL Central, but they will likely need to make a move in order to stay competitive as another integral player heads to the injured list for an extended amount of time.

The ball is in Rick Hahn’s court now. If the White Sox can get Luis Robert and Eloy Jimenez back by September and they’re confident they can compete, Hahn may need to look at moves to keep them in the race.
