    A 6-foot-3, 215-pound righty who is committed to California, Roberts has big pure stuff, but he does it with an unconventional, max-effort delivery. Roberts gathers himself with a slow step back towards first base, while leaning his upper half over the rubber before implementing a high leg lift and exploding off the rubber with a high slot that also has plenty of length in the back. He has thrown a fastball in the low 90s and touched as high as 95-96 and flashed a solid, low 70s breaking ball, but his max-effort delivery and violent head whack will concern scouts and limit his control.
