White Sox player Robert Jr., who was chasing Shohei Ohtani of the Angels by six runs in the battle for the home run king in the Major League Baseball and American League, was placed on the injured list with a knee injury and will end his season.

White Sox player Robert Jr., who has hit 38 home runs so far this season, was placed on the 25-day injured list on the 1th after hurting his left knee when he stole a base in the first inning against the Red Sox on the 27th.

The White Sox have five games left in the season, and Robert Jr. will finish the season.

The battle for the American League's home run king is Ohtani who has already finished the season with 10, Robert Jr. is in second place with 5, Garcia of the Rangers is in third place with 44, and last year's home run king and Judge of the Yankees is in fourth place with 2.
