BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2015 The diminutive outfielder was called upon to do one thing when the Rangers picked him up from the Padres' organization in April: hit left-handed pitching. Robertson did just that, which is good for him because he isn't qualified to do much else. The .330/.398/.423 line he posted against southpaws was fueled by lots of contact, a solid walk rate and his customary doubles-only power. Robertson only homered 27 times as a minor leaguer in seven seasons, despite spending three seasons combined in Lake Elsinore and Tuscon. He'll compete for a reserve outfielder role with the Angels after being acquired in a minor early-winter trade.
2013 Daniel Robertson can hit a little and play all three outfield positions but has been old for his level every step of the way.
