Robinson is the half-brother of Twins righthanded reliever Alex Burnett, who was a 12th-round pick out of Ocean View High in 2005. Robinson flew under the radar for most of his prep career, but his numbers this spring (.518 with 11 homers and 34 RBIs in 83 at-bats) attracted flocks of scouts down the stretch. Robinson has a strong, thick build at 6-foot-1, 235 pounds, and the star quarterback for Ocean View's football team is more athletic than he looks at first glance. Scouts disagree on his present speed, but either way he projects as a below-average runner as he matures, and he'll be tied to left field. He has decent defensive instincts, but his arm is below-average. Robinson has a chance to hit enough to make that work, and his plus or better raw power translates well in games. While his swing isn't pretty, he has decent timing and pitch recognition, and he shows enough feel for hitting that his power should play. His offensive upside should get the Southern California commit drafted in the fourth or fifth round.
