Robert named POY

White Sox prospect Luis Robert was named USA TODAY’s Minor League Player of the Year. We can’t wait to see him in Chicago – but we’ll have to wait until next year.

Ricardo’s road trip

Ricardo González is on a big league ballpark tour. So far he’s hit the Washington Nationals and New York Mets.
