Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 45 | Power: 55 | Run: 40 | Arm: 50 | Field: 45 | Overall: 45

As a high school junior, Robertson hit an extra-inning home run to give Fatima High (Westphalia) the 2015 Missouri state Class 3 baseball championship, but he otherwise drew little attention at his small-town school. After a modest freshman season at Creighton, he made a run at the Big East Conference triple crown in 2018 and continued to produce in the Cape Cod League during the summer. A streaky junior campaign cost him a chance to join Chad McConnell (No. 13 overall in 1992) as the only Creighton position players ever selected in the first round, though he still came off the board early when the Blue Jays took him in the fourth round.

Omaha's TD Ameritrade Park is one of the toughest places to hit a home run in college baseball, yet it wasn't able to contain Robertson, whose short, quick left-handed stroke and strength made him one of the better college sluggers in his class. He lets his home runs come naturally rather than swinging for the fences, making repeated contact that could allow him to hit for average as well. To do so, scouts believe he'll need to get more upright in his stance like he was in the past before getting too spread out as a junior.

Robertson has below-average speed out of the batter's box but is closer to average once he gets going. He needs to improve his defensive instincts, and his arm is merely average, so he could eventually shift to left field in pro ball after playing right field at Creighton. Regardless of which outfield corner he winds up at, Robertson has the requisite pop to fulfill the profile.
