Luis Robert had shown little rust in returning from a knee injury. He’ll get a chance to show his recovery skills again, as Rick Hahn said Robert will be out of action seven to 10 days after hurting his ankle running the bases on Monday.

“Right now it’s a matter of getting him healthy and playing again,” Hahn said. “He’s done very well in a short period of time he’s been able to play, but between the knee and ankle he hasn’t got to play for six, eight weeks straight. Hopefully he’s back in 7-10 days, he will finish the year out in the DSL. I suspect he’ll be part of the DSL instructional league and we’ll see where he’s at come next spring training.”

Robert went 6-for-15 with a homer, two doubles, two HBPs and three stolen bases in three attempts in the six games between injuries.
