Has anything been said bout his upside?  Guys like badler are hyping him up, but what is his ceiling?

From what I've read, he has average raw power, plus arm, enough range for CF, plus speed, plus bat speed, and an advanced approach at the plate. That last one really jumps out as something that is sometimes lacking in the Nats high-ceiling position prospects. We will be hearing a lot more about him soon, seeing as more scouts will get a chance to see him in the GCL.

Keith Law listed Robles as a sleeper to watch, saying: "Down the road a bit further, remember the name Victor Robles, the Nats' star prospect from their Dominican Summer League team last year; he's a center fielder who has 6s and 7s all over his scouting report, with a plus arm, above-average to plus run, excellent bat speed, and the kind of fast-twitch body scouts love."
