White Sox manager Tony LaRussa told reporters that Luis Robert (hip) is expected to return next week for the White Sox. “The thought of having all three of them, I mean, it’s exciting,” La Russa said. “It’s going to be a fun outfield to put together." There was some talk that Robert could return from his hip injury over the weekend against the Cubs, but that was shot down on Thursday. The outfielder has missed all but a month of the season with his hip injury, but he has the potential to help in several categories upon his return.
