01/15/2010 - Under Armour Preseason All-America - 2010
Robert showed similar skills at the UA Preseason All-America as he did at the AZ Fall Classic. He improved his 60 time from 7.69 down to 7.38. He currently projects better at SS than on the mound, but he has the ability to be a 2-way player at the next level. At SS, Robert's hands and feet work well, and he is smooth fielding baseballs hit his way. He has a solid exchange from glove to hand and his throws are accurate to his target. If Robert will approach the baseball more aggressively, and widen his fielding stance, defensive abilities can further improve. On the mound, Robert has good mound presence, separation, balance, and direction toward the plate. He keeps his front side closed, works down in the zone, and forces contact. Added arm strength, and command of his pitches should make his stock on the mound rise. Offensively, Robert has good balance and bat speed. He makes good use of his lower 1/2, and has some pull side pop. More direct hands to the baseball, and better pitch selection should help improve his abilities at the plate.

Robert improved his velocity on the mound to 84 mph. On the mound, showed loose arm action with the ability to extend thru and finish pitch. Had the ability to get to balance point and repeat delivery. Showed good overall mechanics. As he finishes towards target, he will consistently stay on top of pitches. At the plate, he went 5-10 during the event. Demonstrated a quiet approach with excellent balance and above-average bat speed. Had a compact swing with direct path to hitting zone that allowed him to extend thru ball. Showed the ability to hit balls to all fields. At SS, throws had some life and carry on them. Fielded ball out front with soft hands. First step will improve as he anticipates what is going to happen. Best suited as 3B at the next level.

Robert continues to show great consistency from event to event. In the INF, showed short quick arm action. Was very fluid with good lateral movement. Fielded ball out front with soft sure hands and a decent exchange. Played thru ball aggressively. At the plate, had solid pre-pitch preparation and load which allowed for level swing thru hitting zone. Had good balance throughout swing with gap power. As bat speed increases, power will also improve.
01/16/2009 - Under Armour Preseason All America - 2009
Gullion continues to show a lot of improvement in his baseball abilities. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date, now a 7.69 runner. Arm strength now shows near above average displaying accuracy on his throws. He does need to get on a strict long toss program to aid in developing more carry on throws and raise velocities. Hitting abilities and power have also improved to above average abilities with solid average power. Swing path is level with a short path to ball. He only showed as a RHH at the event going 2 for 5. Breaking ball is now showing near above average, displaying an 11/5 shape, tight spin, with late breaking action and will get outs at the next level. His stock on the mound will rise as more arm strength is developed. He does project best in the infield and may well be suited for 3B at the collegiate level.
10/08/2008 - Florida National Tournament - 2008
Gullion showed a great combination of physical ability and a feel for the game, which allowed him to use his abilities as well as anyone on any of our teams at this event. He showed good hands, actions and arm strength defensively along with good game awareness and instincts. Seemed to be a little better from the right side of the plate, and showed bat control and feel for how to handle the bat in situations as well. He also ran the bases well, and seemed to be able to make things happen. On the mound, he showed good arm action and sound mechanics for the most part. Pitched between 77 and 82 with his fastball, and did a good of throwing strikes with all three pitches. Overall, a "baseball player" with excellent natural ability - a rare combination, and one that should prove to be valuable to him at the next level.

Robert is a young two way player at SS and the mound. He has a solid body that shows projection as it continues to physically mature. Arm strength is solid average showing best in the infield displaying life and carry across the diamond. He does need to continue to build arm strength through a strict long toss program. Feet are active in coming to get the baseball and plays through well with his feet and hands. Glove action is soft, sure, and solid in making the plays. He has an idea in the middle of the infield. At the plate, Gullion is a switch hitter that is much better from the right side. Left side abilities are near average. Right side is slightly average with slightly average power. He keeps his hands through the baseball at contact and utilizes his lower half well maintaining balance. He needs to concentrate work at the plate to the right side to improve grades more quickly. On the mound, Robert uses his body to work on a strong downhill plane. Off speed pitches are average to slightly average with changeup showing best. Delivery is repeatable with good direction and rhythm. Gullion is young and could develop into a solid middle infielder over the next 2 years.
