01/18/2013 - 2013 Under Armour All-America Pre-Season Tournament
Robbins topped at 79 with his fastball this outing, a little down from the low 80s we've seen previously. His breaking ball was again his best pitch however, he threw it with good feel and the pitch had depth and sharp 11-5 action when he stayed on top of it. He also mixed in a 69-70 CH, giving him a usable three pitch mix. He threw a lot of strikes and pitched to contact, changed speeds well. His delivery was balanced, and he broke his hands in time to give his arm a chance to work. His arm worked short out of the glove, and out front as well. Direction was good, and landing was sound. Tended to finish a little upright, not allowing much extension out front through the pitch. At the plate, he hit from a balanced setup and did a good job of launching to a solid hitting position with his body. His stroke was short and level, and he stayed on pitches away well. Overall, a capable two-way player with a fluid left handed stroke and ability to throw strikes with a three pitch mix.

Matt is a tall, thin, and athletic 2B that will graduate in 2013. Foot speed is solid as indicated by his 7.28 60 time. Defensively, his feet are active and aggressive as he attacks ground balls and plays through with his body, displaying a low approach. He maintains plus body control and presents hands out front, showing an outstanding glove action. Hands / feet work well together as he gets rid of the baseball quickly with accuracy and carry into target. Offensively, Robbins is a switch hitter that currently projects better from the left side. He shows a balanced approach and works to keep hands inside the ball, utilizing all fields. Swing path is level and he shows a solid feel for the barrel from the left side. From the right side, he needs to get his hands more involved and work on shortening his swing, as well as maintaining better balance through the swing. Matt has a lot of potential and will catch the eyes of the collegiate coaches as he continues to improve.
