5/30/12: The 2012 draft has a well above average collection of top third base prospects, with Joey Gallo, Trey Williams, Corey Seager, Rio Ruiz and Carson Kelly being talked about frequently as first round/sandwich round type picks. Some scouts would also put probable first round shortstops Carlos Correa and Tanner Rahier in that group, although others see those two staying at shortstop professionally. Southern California slugger Daniel Robertson often gets overlooked when top high school third basemen are discussed but his continued hitting excellence has put him squarely with the group above in terms of draft potential. It isn’t as if Robertson entered the spring as an unknown. He was a Perfect Game All-American selection and has played for the very high profile ABD Bulldogs team during the summer and fall. But opposed to others listed above, Robertson doesn’t have the big attention grabbing power tool or long and loose 6-foot-4 body to impress scouts. Robertson has a 6-foot-1, 190-pound build that is strong and fairly mature. He’s a right handed hitter with a very fundamentally sound swing and one of the most advanced approaches at the plate of any high school or college hitter in the 2012 draft. Robertson sees the ball exceptionally well and has a short, quick fluid line drive swing that produces line drives to all fields. While he doesn’t have the lift and sheer power that hitters like Gallo or Williams have, Robertson’s strength and ability to consistently square up the ball will enable him to hit his share of home runs, along with a well above average number of doubles. He swings hard with good extension through contact and looks to drive the ball. While high school statistics are usually of little value in evaluating a player, Robertson’s emphasize his maturity and skills as a hitter. He hit .560-6-31 this spring with an eye opening 29 walks and only 6 strikeouts. His 2011 numbers as a junior were virtually identical; .545-6-22 with only 4 strikeouts. He’ll be a hitter at the next level who posts consistently high walk and on base percentage numbers. Robertson actually plays shortstop in high school, as many of the top third basemen do, but moves to third immediately during the summer and fall and will continue to play third base professionally. He’s a 7.28 to 7.41 runner who has good balance, hands and footwork at the position. His best defensive tool is his strong and accurate arm, which has been gunned at 90 mph across the infield in drills. Robertson only threw four innings from the mound this spring as his high school’s occasional closer, but was rumored to have touched 94 mph during one of those outings, which is certainly believable. Robertson has signed with UCLA but the Bruins don’t have the same traditional pull for top position prospects as they have pitching prospects. If Robertson does choose to go to school, he should be an immediate impact player offensively.
