Robles #2 Prospect in the Hotsheet:

2. Victor Robles, of, Nationals

Team: short-season Auburn (New York-Penn)
Age: 18
Why He’s Here: .542/.571/.917 (13-for-24), 6 R, 2 2B, 2 3B, 1 HR, 8 RBIs, 2 BB, 3 SO, 1-for-2 SB

The Scoop: Lucas Giolito and Reynaldo Lopez are the twin peaks of the Nationals’ system, but Robles isn’t far behind. The five-tool talent quickly bullied his way out of the Rookie-level Gulf Coast League and has made an early impact in his new surroundings. He opened his stay in the northeast with a three-hit game, and in launched his first home run just four games later. He’s a five-tool player with arm strength and footspeed that both rank as plus-plus already.
