Robles is on the active roster for the NLDS against Chicago, The Washington Post's Chelsea Janes reports.
Robles will serve as depth in the outfield as manager Dusty Baker elected to carry six outfielders for the series. During 13 major-league games, the 20-year-old has gone 6-for-24 (.250 average) with three extra-base hits and four RBI.
Robles went 1-for-2 with a double and an RBI in Sunday's win over the Phillies.
Making his first big-league start, the Nats' No. 1 fantasy prospect also collected his first hit and first RBI in the majors. The 20-year-old may pick up some additional starts down the stretch now that the club has clinched the NL East crown, but Robles won't be a regular in the lineup until at least some time next season.
Robles is starting in center field and hitting fifth Sunday against the Phillies.
Washington's top prospect will make his first-ever start in the Show on Sunday as he's starting in place of Michael Taylor in center field. Although the Nationals and fantasy owners alike are eager to see how Robles will perform in the majors, it's unclear how often he'll be used in the starting lineup for the remainder of the season. The 20-year-old played 37 games at Double-A Harrisburg before getting called up. Over said games, he hit .324/.394/.489.
Robles had his contract purchased from Double-A Harrisburg on Thursday, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.
As expected, the Nationals' top prospect will join the big club after slashing .300/.382/.493 with 10 homers and 27 stolen bases in 114 games between Harrisburg and High-A Potomac. It's unclear how much playing time Robles will see down the stretch, but with Washington's outfield somewhat banged up, it wouldn't be too surprising to see him collect a few starts. At the very least, the young stud will serve as a high-quality pinch running option.
Robles will be recalled from Double-A Harrisburg on Thursday, Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports.
Robles is one of the top prospects in all of baseball, and he'll join the big club after beginning the season with High-A Potomoc. The 20-year-old hasn't seen any action above Double-A, but he compiled a healthy .300/.382/.493 line with 10 homers and 27 stolen bases in 114 games between Double-A and High-A this season. It's unclear how often he'll play down the stretch, but with Bryce Harper (knee) still sidelined, the electric prospect could see occasional playing time over Howie Kendrick or Jayson Werth in Washington's outfield. Robles is a center fielder by trade, but has a cannon of an arm, and profiles as a plus defender in all three outfield spots. He should also serve as a high-quality pinch running option.
