Chicago White Sox outfielder Luis Robert is expected to miss at least three-to-four months due to a hip flexor tear, general manager Rick Hahn announced Monday.

Robert suffered the injury while trying to beat out a ground ball during Sunday's game against the Cleveland Indians. The 23-year-old collapsed in pain after crossing first base, and trainers needed to help him off the field.

The best-case scenario for Robert's return is August, Hahn said, adding that the second-year pro can't be ruled out for the season yet, according to James Fegan of The Athletic.

The executive also noted the club will be exploring trades to help its outfield after losing Robert and Eloy Jimenez for a significant time, according to Scot Gregor of the Daily Herald.

Robert is slashing .316/.359/.463 this season with one home run and four stolen bases over 25 games. He finished as the runner-up for AL Rookie of the Year honors in 2020 and won a Gold Glove.
