2016 Stohs Prospect Handbook Profile: Robinson was named ESPN’s High School player of the year in New York in 2011. The four-year letterman threw four no-hitters in high school including a 19-strikeout game. He went to the University of Maryland and was a starter as a freshman. In 57 innings (13 starts), he walked 43 and struck out 46. He was moved to the bullpen as a sophomore and became the team’s closer as a junior. He posted a 1.63 ERA and struck out 32 in 27.2 innings. However, he also walked 20. At 6-3 and a stocky 220 pounds, Robinson is strong. Pitching out of the bullpen, Robinson was consistently hitting 94-96 mph with the fastball. His slider can be sharp but his control of it gets erratic. Some might be due to a big leg kick and a turn back toward second base in his delivery. With development, he could become another JC Romero type.
