Humber rocked as Sox comeback falls short

CLEVELAND (AP) Zach McAllister pitched six innings for his first major league win as the Cleveland Indians roughed up a far-from-perfect Philip Humber in an 8-6 win Monday over the Chicago White Sox in the first game of a day-night doubleheader.McAllister, recalled from Triple-A Columbus to make his fifth career start, allowed just two earned runs and six hits.The Indians took their turn pounding Humber (1-2) , who hasn't been sharp since pitching the 21st perfect game in major league history on April 21. Since then, he has allowed 20 runs in 13 1-3 innings and gone 0-2 with a no-decision.Michael Brantley and Casey Kotchman drove in three runs each for the AL-Central leading Indians. Travis Hafner homered and hit his first triple in nearly five years.

See where Luis Robert ranks in MLB Pipeline top 100 prospects

It didn't take long for Luis Robert's name to appear on the MLB Pipeline 2017 Prospect Watch list. 

The Cuban outfielder, who was officially announced as a South Sider on Saturday, is ranked No. 3 in the White Sox farm system and 26th overall. Not bad for a 19-year-old. 

Robert leaped ahead of 22-year-old pitcher Lucas Giolito -- who is fresh off a Triple-A Charlotte no-hitter -- and sits behind only fellow Cuban Yoan Moncada (No. 1) and flamethrower Michael Kopech (No. 2).

In MLB.Com's analysis, they compare the two highly touted Cubans in the White Sox organization saying, "While they play different positions, Robert has a lot of similarities to Moncada. A right-handed hitter, Robert pairs electrifying bat speed that should translate into considerable power with well above-average speed. Both come with some swing-and-miss concerns, though Moncada's didn't really surface until he reached Double-A."

As reported, Robert will begin his journey through the White Sox organization in the Dominican Republic this summer

We're pretty excited.
