White Sox to pick 13th overall in upcoming draft

Major League Baseball will host the first day of the 2012 First-Year Player Draft on June 4.

The event's selection order is determined by the reverse order of finish at the end of the previous season. The Houston Astros will have the first overall selection for the third time in team history.

The White Sox own the 13th overall pick.

The Draft will have 40 rounds instead of 50, and a club is allowed to pass on its selection at any point and not forfeit their right to participate in other rounds.

Watch Luis Robert rope a triple for his first hit of spring training

Of all the excitement surrounding the White Sox entering 2020, Luis Robert might have the most juice right now.

After dominating three levels of the minors last season and fresh off signing a lucrative contract extension before even playing in a big league game, Robert has plenty of buzz around him. On Tuesday, he showed off a little bit of why in Cactus League action.

Robert roped a ball into the right-center field gap and raced to third for a triple.


Robert is known for his power and speed combination, which led to a 30-30 season in the minors last year. This is a good example of it.
