  • Platoon - not just a movie, a baseball obsession
So .... he's not hitting for average, he's not hitting for power, he's not stealing bases, and his defense is not elite.
but he's getting on base, and I think today's drop was a freak thing. 

The BABIP is also freaky low - .289 for a guy with speed.  Looking at his batted ball profile relative to 2019, it looks like he's hitting more balls in the air (and they are liners, mostly), but the contact is softer.  https://www.fangraphs.com/players/victor-robles/18363/stats?position=OF
