CHICAGO (CBS) — The White Sox’ Luis Robert has been cleared to go on a minor league rehab assignment – after having been out since May 2 with an injury.
Robert will head to Winston-Salem, North Carolina Wednesday.
Robert was hurt running to first base in the first inning on Sunday, May 2, as the White Sox took on the Cleveland Indians. The White Sox say tests revealed a grade-three strain – or a complete tear of his hip-flexor muscle.
Robert said he is surprised he’s returning this soon.
