18-Year-Old OutfielderOF
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Robinson (6-foot-3, 190 pounds) looks like he should be running wide receiver drills at the NFL combine, but his birth certificate suggests he should be getting ready for his senior prom. After Wander Franco, Robinson is the clear top fantasy asset from the 2017 July 2 international signing class. The Bahamian outfielder has monster raw power, an arm for right and the speed for center. Given his size and physicality, it is fair to wonder how his speed will grade out when he reaches the majors, but some scouts actually think it will tick up as he gets more pro training. The more pressing question is whether he will make enough contact against upper-level pitching to hit for a high average. He was the second-youngest hitter in the Pioneer League (minimum 50 PA) and the fourth-youngest hitter in the AZL (minimum 150 PA), so his 26.2 K% and 10.5 BB% are reasonable marks, given his offensive profile. If he hits at Low-A, the acquisition cost will become prohibitive. Read Past Outlooks

Robinson was promoted to Low-A Kane County on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
This should be a nice test for Robinson, who destroyed Northwest League pitching to the tune of a .319/.407/.558 slash line with nine home runs (.239 ISO) and 14 steals in 44 games. Very few prospects can match his combination of mammoth raw power and plus speed.
