Not as bad as I feared. Good to see.

Doesn't take much negativity away from Robert being made of glass, though. That's really distressing.

He may be too athletic for his body. He gets such small injuries but they are never ending. Who misses what amounts to the entire year for a thumb injury?

Missing two years of development is less than ideal.

Assuming the middle ground in this latest thumb injury (six weeks), it adds up to about 16 weeks (four months) missed.

The "baseball-gods" keep giving the middle finger to the Sox. Ridiculous.

The totals for the prospects going back to last year: Robert (two serious injuries), Eloy (a few more-minor injuries although that strain could turn into a big one if he's not careful), Dunning, Burger (two serious injuries), Burdi, Cordell, Hansen and Adolfo.

All you can do is laugh I guess.

2022 is looking more and more realistic since they can't keep guys on the field.

Is the Eloy injury an injury that could be avoided by better conditioning?


Lip, a question for you: If the White Sox can't keep guys on the field who plays in 2022?

I think he has played, maybe. 40 games total in the past two seasons
Which is why advocating for a 2019 call-up for this kid was silly...

Personally given the number of injuries, the time not playing, the inconsistent performances of some guys and the youth of others I hope the Sox don't call anybody up this year.

Let the guys heal, maybe Hansen, Dunning, Robert can play in the Arizona Fall league and then see everyone in February.

I feel the same way, except I wouldn’t even ticket those important guys for AFL. Just call it a wrap for everybody after Labor Day, except for the 40-man depth guys like Aaron Bummer, Jose Rondon, Matt Skole, and Dustin Garneau. Give Carson Fulmer a few more starts as well, although a James Shields trade may allow that to happen even sooner than September.

Right, since we all should have been Ms Cleos and seen the rain of injuries coming

That is not my point. My point is that the time he already had missed was enough to make that extreme promotion schedule silly.

This was all under the premise that by some miracle the Sox would have contended this season and the one glaring hole come August being CF.

Also under the Assumption he'd have a healthy spring and blow right thru Winston Salem as the elite prospect he was tagged by.

Neither of those things should have been assumed.

“Elite prospect” and “accelerated path to the majors” are two entirely different concepts. The absolute best-case scenario still would have meant the rest of 2018 being spent at Winston-Salem while his still-absent power returned. Without a return of his power, he should have been repeating Winston-Salem at the beginning of 2019 anyway.

Even assuming a great stint at high-A to close out 2018 and a great 2019 Spring Training, it would have been quite a meteoric rise to go from AA all the way to the majors with fewer than 1000 total minor league plate appearances as a 22-year-old. Honestly, with the way Anderson, Fulmer, and Moncada have struggled after aggressive promotions, I would have advised against it.

Separate from the injury issues (5 of our top 9, 7 of our top 17 prospects with significant injuries this year with half the season to go- yuck)- some nice performances last night-

Rivera and Rutherford continue to rake at A+
Thompson (recently promoted) with a solid 2 inning save at AA
Very good start by Adams at AAA
