Trayvon Robinson OF SEA

35 posts in this topic

When can we expect Trayvon Robinson to be called up? What can we expect from him in the future?

Current AAA stats: .336, 7 HR, 22 RBI, 2 SB

Looks like he has decent power and he stole 47 bases last season. He does strike out a lot though.

Never trust PCL #'s. He seems like a better option than Sands or Loney though. They need to move Kemp to LF, put Robinson in CF, and platoon Loney and Sands.

I'm a big Trayvon Robinson fan. His power potential is moderate, but the speed is plus. Sure, he strikes out a lot, but he also knows how to take a walk. A call-up later this season is certainly possible.

This guy would make sense in LF and hitting 2nd in the lineup.

Really need someone with speed in the 2 hole. Casey Blake in the 2 spot is absurd..

Could be getting close to being called up. Thames was supposed to go on the DL today unless he made some progress. I havent heard anything official yet but Robinson is not in the sunday lineup for AAA. Maybe a move is announced after the game today?

the ONLY thing that is worrying me is his K's .. seems to be K-ing nearly one out of every 3 at bats... -- but regardless, he is having one heck of of a first half

Loney's been hitting too well for Sands to claim his job right now.

yeah but hes certainly not worth a long term commitment from the dodgers when they have a cheap guy essentially waiting to claim the position...loneys ops of .675 as a 1B should have him out of the league rather than making 5 mil per year

Time for the Dodgers to call this kid up. I know he's been more of a power hitter than a speedster this year. But just imagine what Davey Lopes can teach this kid.

I've love for the dodgers to give him a chance.

Switch hitter with some pop and speed. Sounds great for hitting in the 2 hole. Time to get Casey "hit into DP" Blake out of the 2 hole for god sake!

I guess we all have to wait now.

Rivera has been acquired by the Dodgers for a player to be named later or cash considerations, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports. Of course, the cash considerations or PTBNL will determine whether or not this makes any sense for the Dodgers, but the corresponding move to clear roster space was the designation of Marcus Thames for assignment Tuesday. Presumably, Rivera will handle the bulk of the left field duties for the Dodgers during the second half of the season.

Thames is nothing more than a platoon player, or bench bat. He will not effect Trayvon, but looking more and more like Sept callup may be the soonest we see him.

I don't know what LAD was thinking, but SEA acquired Robinson as a part of the deal that sent Bedard to BOS. In my opinion, LAD could have used Robinson in their own OF right now. Just a major score for SEA.

Yeah, terrible trade for LAD. It doesn't help his fantasy value for him to go to SEA and he really needs to cut the K rate down. I'm slightly souring on him now

Can you name the last hitter the Dodgers developed that was not overhyped not named Matt Kemp? Seems like there has been a ton

Fair point, but I don't see why that would have any impact on whether or not Robinson could have developed into a legit player there. Sure, his numbers were likely slightly inflated due to the PCL and his K rate was high, but they're throwing out Tony Gwynn Jr and Juan Rivera out there in left on a daily basis. They might as well have given the kid a shot to see what he could do.

Ned said he didnt think highly of robinson and though sands was a better prospect....he said outfielders are easy to get....thats why the dodgers are starting juan rivera and tony gwyn jr....didnt think robinson was a good prospect huh ned? like you didnt think highly of edwin jackson, carlos santana, james mcdonald, or xavier paul who are all helping teams right now who are playing for playoff spots...not to mention russell martin who is a cough cough catcher and is the starting catcher for the yankees...but dont worry you saved us 1 million and gave us bajaras and navarro anyway....so lets see maybe if you didnt trade carlos santana, let go of russell martin or heck even give away lucas may we wouldnt need to give up a top 5 prospect for another young version of AJ ellis...its hard to be a dodger fan.

Its an awful trade, because the 3 guys they got are all organizational filler.

- The catcher is the type of strong D/weak bat C you can find all off-season for 3-4 mil.

- The 24 y/o AA pitcher is repeating AA and still has weak ratios. The only scouting report I could find didn't find his stuff all that dominating, that he was mostly a control specialist. A 1.40 WHIP for a 24 y/o 'control specialist' at AA. Yeah... At best, he's a swingman/5th starter type. More likely, he never amounts to anything. Not even sure why they wanted him.

- The young Low-A pitcher has decent stuff, with very little control. A big project. Most teams have a few of these types. Worth drafting late and trying to work with, but middling trade value. Low success rate.

They traded a AAA outfielder who has decent power, decent speed and a decent walk rate before giving him a shot at MLB. When they just so happen to badly need a player in the very spot he plays. All so that they could get 3 guys they don't really need.

To be called up tomorrow. He wasn't good enough to come up for the left field challenged Dodgers, but the Mariners will give him a chance.
