A native of Long Island, Alex Robinson has been on scouts' radar for quite some time. Throwing from a low arm slot, the lefthanded Robinson showed strong velocity out of high school while fighting his command due to a raw delivery. His projectability was obvious, but his commitment to Maryland made him a tough sign, and he ended up on campus. During his time at College Park, Robinson has grown into a physically imposing southpaw with an elite fastball. He battled command issues as an underclassman, but emerged in the New England Collegiate League last summer, showing mid-90s velocity and a sharp breaking ball. His command has been a little better this spring, but he has walked more than six batters per nine. When he's on, however, Robinson is among the toughest pitchers to hit in the country, worked 92-94 and touching as high as 96 or 97 with bat-breaking life on his fastball. His breaking ball is a short, late-breaking slider that shows the ability to compete in the strike zone. He will have to cut down his walks and be more consistent in the strike zone, but Robinson has late-inning potential at the highest level and could move quickly if he harnesses more control.
