    Robinson has the best swing in the area--the prototypical lefthanded stroke--and scouts liked him more than any of the hitters in the Four Corners, outside of Bryce Harper. He's 6-foot-1 and 180 pounds and his brother Chad is a pitcher in the Brewers system. Robinson's swing is smooth and easy and got a Mark Grace comparison. He has an upright stance and strides into the ball, so his head drops a little, but he has looseness in his swing and strong hands. He's more of a gap-to-gap hitter than a pure power hitter. A high school shortstop, he'll probably have to move to the outfield. He ran a decent 60-yard dash last summer but is now regarded as a below-average runner after knee surgery, a pulled hamstring that kept him out of the Area Code Games, and a sore back earlier this spring. He has the above-average arm for right field. The Orioles have been the team most connected to Robinson and could take him in the third round. He'll likely sign, and if he doesn't he's committed to Nebraska.
