Lewis Robert Jr. (Chicago White Sox), who finished second in home runs in the American League (AL), suffered a calf injury while playing in the Home Run Derby and missed the All-Star Game.

The White Sox team announced on the 12th (Korean time), “Robert Jr. felt a pulling pain in his right calf in the first round of the All-Star Home Run Derby yesterday (11th).”스포츠토토

The club said it was a precautionary measure. The club said, “Robert Jr. has undergone a thorough examination in Seattle and will check his condition every day.” “As a precaution, he will not play this All-Star Game. He will be checked again before the Atlanta Braves game on the 16th. The game against Atlanta on the 16th is the first schedule of the second half of the White Sox.

Robert Jr. is the AL representative star who hit 26 homers in the first half alone. 26 is the second-highest record in the AL home run category following Shohei Ohtani (32, Los Angeles Angels), who is leading the Major League Baseball (MLB) overall. Due to fierce voting in the sluggish and outfield divisions of his team, the White Sox, he was not selected by voting, but was selected as the first All-Star in his career by the recommendation of the Secretariat. In the Home Run Derby held on the 11th, he won the first round and advanced to the second round, but gave the victory to Randy Arozarena (Tampa Bay Rays), who only passed 22 and hit 35.

Meanwhile, Robert Jr.’s team, the White Sox, is virtually frustrated in the postseason. Previously, John Heyman of the New York Post announced on the 11th, “The White Sox can trade all but four key players, including Dylan Seads, Andrew Vaughn, Illroy Jimenez, and All-Star Robert Jr.” It is more like a retooling declaration that reorganizes power by supplying and receiving promising players while leaving key players behind. Starting pitcher Lucas Giolito and shortstop Tim Anderson have already been mentioned as potential trade candidates.
