Ahead of the weekend series against the Kansas City Royals, the Chicago White Sox provided an update on Luis Robert’s injury status.
Per the team’s game notes, Robert will not undergo surgery after suffering a Grade 3 strain of his right hip flexor.
Instead, Robert will undergo a period of rest and rehabilitation. The team will provide a further update in about eight weeks.
Robert suffered the injury while running out a groundball in the first inning of a game against the Cleveland Indians on May 2nd.
The following day, the White Sox confirmed the injury as a Grade 3 strain, which represents a complete tear. Even after today’s development that Robert will not require surgery, his recovery timeline still remains the same as initially reported: 12-16 weeks.
