Power 70 Future power to all fields, approach is to left and center field, plus-plus raw power, see flashes of in-game power to left and center, strength to hit low and high launch angle homers, knows how to get the ball in the air.
Baserunning/Speed 60 Stolen base potential, needs to improve stolen base instincts, long strides, minimal effort, slightly above-average instincts on bases, gets out of box quickly, agile, glides.
Glove 60 Athletic enough to make almost any play, confident going to wall, plus range, route efficiency needs improvement, can get turned around at times, smooth fielding ground balls in OF, average and inconsistent jumps, shown ability to make diving catches in all directions.
Arm 60 Plays plus in any outfield slot, plus velocity, plus carry, on a line, accurate, sets feet well, fluid release.

Once Robinson improves his instincts with reps he has the potential to be a true five-tool player with a long and successful big-league career.
