Chicago White Sox' outfielder Luis Robert will be away from the team until this weekend. Robert flew home to Cuba to welcome his child into the world. The club will not place him on the paternity list, however.

Robert has missed stretches of action due to a wrist injury over the last two weeks despite not being on the injured list. The White Sox have instead kept him on the roster and used him in pinch-running and defensive replacement roles.

On the season, Robert has appeared in 90 games. In those 90 games, the White Sox are 48-42. 

The South Siders are dealing with a plethora of injuries. Yoan Moncada and Tim Anderson still find themselves on the IL heading into the final stretch of the season. The Sox are currently 64-66 and sit five games back of the first-place Cleveland Guardians.

With Luis Robert's absence due to the birth of his child, Moncada on the shelf due to a hamstring issue, and Anderson rehabbing his wrist, the Chicago White Sox' season could be lost. If they have hopes of Soxtober for a third-straight season, they must start making up ground quickly.

Perhaps Wednesday's victory over the Royals to snap a five-game losing streak can get them out of their funk. Their next test is almost here as Wednesday's matinee series finale gets underway at 1:10 PM CT.
