    View Draft Report
    The son of Louisiana-Lafayette head coach Tony Robichaux, Austin has been a three-year contributor and the ace of the Ragin' Cajuns team that finished the regular season ranked No. 1 by Baseball America. Robichaux offers strike-throwing ability and a four-pitch mix. Teams that see him as a starter value him in the top five rounds, while his slender, 6-foot-6, 170-pound frame has others thinking he is more likely to end up in the pen. His fastball works at 89-92 mph, touching 93 with sink, and his delivery lacks deception. Both his curveball and changeup show at least average potential. Robichaux has a good feel for pitching and the potential for at least average control. He has missed time this season with biceps tendinitis and there is some effort to his upright delivery.
