Rumors have been flying that the Chicago White Sox are shopping around former All-Star center fielder Luis Robert Jr. The Toronto Blue Jays are reportedly front runners to go after the 26-year-old.

There are at least SIX Luis Robert Jr. suitors, per
@JonHeyman
⬇️

NL- Dodgers, Phillies and Braves
AL- Royals, Mariners and Blue Jays

Robert Jr says he is just trying to focus on playing baseball. He stated he wants to stay a White Sox, but it is obviously out of his control if the team wants him gone or not.
"Everybody has been texting me, asking me about that, all those rumors," said Robert Jr. through interpreter Billy Russo, during an interview with MLB.com this past Saturday. "This is nothing I can control. I would like to stay here, but if the team decided otherwise, I have to keep playing baseball. If it's here or not, I have to do what I have to do."

The All-Star has been having a down year, struggling at the plate which is very uncharacteristic for him. He is hitting only .196 in 56 at-bats with 6 home runs. As a career .276 hitter, there must be something else going on that we are not aware about.
Just like Cavan Biggio, a change of scenery may be in order, and it seems like our Toronto Blue Jays are prime contenders to snag him up. He would be a great addition if he can get back to his former self. He has a high ceiling, but it seems the White Sox are looking to ship him elsewhere.
Fans would love to see him in a Blue Jays Unifrom!
