Robles is a perfectly propoertioned athlete, with broad shoulders, long limbs and a high waist, built in a similar fashion to Barry Zito. Unlike Zito, Robles can bring it, with his fastball sitting in the 88-92 range while touching 95. He works from a low-3/4 delivery, and commands his fastball very well for his age. His curveball is a little loopy at this point in time, but it's a true slow-curveball that will complement his fastball perfectly when he finds more consistency. His athleticism allows him to repeat his delivery well, and his velocity doesn't vary much deep into ballgames or from start-to-start. He is a similar prospect to Clayton Kershaw, who went 7th overall in last June's draft.
