The Chicago White Sox will head down to The Lone Star State for a four-game series against the Texas Rangers this weekend. Manager Tony La Russa announced Wednesday how he plans to use Luis Robert and deploy his pitchers for the extended set.

The White Sox activated Robert, who had been dealing with lightheadedness and blurred vision, from the injured list Tuesday. He did not appear in the lineup against the Royals on Tuesday or Wednesday, but he will play most of the upcoming weekend series.

The White Sox plan to monitor Robert’s workload over the next 7-10 days, which falls in line with the following usage. La Russa said Robert will serve as the DH Thursday, play center field Friday, have an off day Saturday, and return to the lineup Sunday.

Thursday will mark Robert’s first time back in the White Sox lineup since July 15. In 74 games this season, he is slashing .301/.334/.461 with 12 home runs and 54 RBIs. The 25-year-old currently ranks third among Chicago White Sox hitters with a 126 wRC+. His return is a welcomed development as the Sox look to make a push for the AL Central division title.

Finally the lineup and batting order that should be used the majority of the remaining games. (with the exception of a few games when Zavala replces Grandal). It was stupid to use .200 hitters behind both Anderson and Abreu. Abreu hit the best when he saw better pitches with Vaughn hitting behind him ( NOT Garcia, or Grandal) And Moncada’s low .200 average did nothing to help Anderson.
