Report: White Sox, Cuban outfielder Luis Robert agree to $25 million deal

The Luis Robert sweepstakes have generated plenty of attention and hype in the past few weeks, and it appears the saga will be ending with the Cuban teenager heading to the White Sox.

According to Fox Sports MLB Insider Ken Rosenthal, the #White Sox are closing on a deal with Robert.

Baseball America's Ben Badler, who had linked the White Sox to Robert for quite some time, provided a report on what kind of player the South Siders are getting in Robert.

The 19-year-old Robert had a .401/.526/.687 slash line with 12 home runs and 40 RBI in his final season in the Cuban National Series in 2016.

Robert joins fellow countrymen Yoan Moncada and Jose Abreu in the White Sox organization.
