Is one swing all it takes?

Luis Robert Jr., in his first rookie-level game in Arizona for his rehab, knocked a ball out of the park in his first swing at the plate.

Robert Jr. is rehabbing from the Grade 2 hip flexor strain he endured in April. The initial timeline slated him to be on the shelf for 6-8 weeks. However, he's incurred a couple of setbacks in his rehab since then.

The plan for the White Sox center fielder is to play a couple of games in the Arizona Complex League this week. Next week, barring any further setbacks, Robert should be able to start an official rehab stint. The expectation is Robert should return to the field in early June.
