I don't buy the "He's young.   Don't rush him." chatter.    However, he's takin' it all in.   He acts like he's enjoin' the hell out of the ride. 
The tip of the hat for making an out the other day was comical.   Yesterday, I was sittin' along the 3rd base line when he got thrown out goin' for three.     As he walked toward second (someone brought him his gear), the crowd gave him a nice ovation.    About at the short top position, he waved to the crowd.    I loved it.

He’s on the 40-man so he’s there automatically.

Honestly, can someone explain to me how even if Bryce Harper stays, Robles isn't the starting CFer by the 2019 season?

If MAT is a 5 win player this year. But then I guess you’d trade him.

So, again, about the same likelihood of me throwing out a first pitch. Taylor is nice, but if Robles doesn't pan out like he's scouted to, the Nats are pretty much boned in the outfield after next season.

A thanks to Joe Tate of the Facebook group "Washington D.C. Baseball": Robles scores on a steal of second.

Victor Robles has  exited the Chiefs game with an apparent arm or shoulder injury. He was making a diving catch when injured. No word on nature or severity but it’s described by someone on twitter as “looks bad.”

just saw the video, not for the faint of heart.  Looks like he broke/dislocated his elbow.  If so, he's going to be out a long long time.

it's here if you want to view it:

Not that I'm in the know but as you probably know too, sometimes those things look worse than they turn out to be.    I'm hopin' that's the case.    The arm didn't look as dangling as some early reports suggested.

So it’s an elbow injury. He’s had x-rays, which were negative. He’s heading to DC to see a specialist.
