David Robertson followed a successful freshman season in 2005 with a 3-3, 2.76 campaign this season. A draft-eligible sophomore, Robertson is likely to fill the same role his brother Connor did in pro ball. Connor was a member of Birmingham-Southern's NAIA national title team in 2001 before being drafted by the Athletics. David is undersized, with a quick arm and clean delivery. He has been up to 95 mph, with a slider that sits around 81-83 mph. He will cut his fastball in any count. His command needs to improve, as does his approach. He has a tendency to nibble on the corners, while other times he'll go right after hitters. He's drawn comparisons to Blue Jays reliever Jason Frasor and profiles as a set-up man.
