Luis Robert, others Promoted

Recommended Posts

Bravo.

So we have Robert / Rutherford / Gonzalez / Basabe to cycle through while Adolfo is on IL. When Adolfo returns, I'm guessing Basabe is promoted.

Awesome. Now leave him there the rest of the year, have him open up next year with Charlotte for a final tune-up, then call him up mid-April.

Disagree here. If he tears up Birmingham, send him to Charlotte in August. Also, does anyone know what the deal is with Robert's contract? Does it matter whether he opens the season with the Sox with regard to service time considerations?

Why would it be different? It's not. He signed a signing bonus like every other foreign amateur that comes up through a system. Eloy was no different, right? Service time rules still apply here.

He's gonna be bad for a couple weeks and strike out a ton and then get in a groove and force the issue again, IMO

Maybe. I think he's just going to rake.

With Adolfo going down it was probably the right time to promote Robert. I would rather have had him have a few good games after being hurt than having whatever it was 4 or 5 K's in  row after he came back just to make sure he is OK. I hate thinking he still might be sore and going to a tough league in that condition.

Very possible. I just am mentally preparing for the general disappointment when he *doesn't* hit .400/.500/.600 right away. If he does, there's a real case to be made that he should be in the majors for the summer

Have you checked his last couple games?

5-7, 4 R, 2 HR, 4 RBI, 0 K's, 1 BB, 1 SB

Please, please, please keep torching baseballs and not hit the birmingham brick wall. 

We've entered the Robert to Chicago in '19 realm of possibility.

I don't think I need to see him in Charlotte at all with those balls tbh. Give him a nice run in Birmingham and if he rakes, I don't see the need for AAA.

And then I'll disagree with you, if he is raking in the upper minor levels bring him up this season.

This x 3000. Someone needs to light that group on fire. Hopefully it's Robert.

I pretty much agree with this. If he succeeds in AA, and I mean really succeeds, not his w-s numbers but .500 slugging, > .330 obp, then it's time. With the major league balls in AAA it's just a bandbox. He'll learn more in bigs.

If he destroys AA send him to the show after the ASB or trade deadline, let him face his challenges at the major league level and get acclimated.
