Robles (hamstring) was activated from the 7-day disabled list Monday, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports. Robles is ready to return to action after missing around two weeks with the hamstring ailment. The 19-year-old top prospect will look to pick up right where he left off in High-A ball, as he owns a slash line of .333/.394/.600 with three RBI and four stolen bases through eight games with Potomac this season.
Robles was placed on the 7-day DL at High-A Potomac with hamstring tightness, retroactive to April 19, MASN's Byron Kerr reports. He was sidelined with hamstring tightness earlier in the season, then returned April 18, and was promptly shut down again after aggravating the injury. Robles is an elite prospect but was not expected to reach the majors this season, so the injury does not affect his value. He was hitting .333/.394/.600 with one home run and four steals (on four attempts) prior to landing on the DL.
Robles (leg) went 0-for-2 in his return to the lineup Tuesday. The top prospect was removed in the fifth inning, although it seems like it was just a measure to ease him back into action. As long as he doesn't feel any ill effects from the injury moving forward, Robles should continue to be one of the brightest prospects in all of baseball.
Robles left Thursday's game at High-A Potomac with leg tightness and is listed as day-to-day, Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post reports. It appears the exit was a simple precaution, but it will certainly be something to keep an eye on. The highly-regarded 19-year-old has been on a tear to begin the season, batting .357 with a 1.062 OPS in his fourth season with the organization, though Robles won't be rushed back into action if the problem persists.
Robles is hitting .368/.400/.684 with one home run, three doubles and two stolen bases through 19 at-bats for High-A Potomac. After posting a .262/.354/.387 line in 41 games with Potomac to close out 2016, it's good to see the toolsy outfielder get off to a hot start in a repeat trip to the Carolina League. His 25 percent strikeout rate is a little uncharacteristic, so it will be worth keeping an eye on that specific metric as the season goes on, as Robles has posted strikeout rates below 17 percent at every stop above rookie ball prior to this season.
