Dodgers Bring Up Robles… Is he the Real Deal?

The LA Dodgers purchased the contract of 29 year old Oscar Robles. Robles comes to the majors via the Mexican League and Dodger management has high hopes for him. According to Jim Tracy:

“His versatility was something we were interested in at Spring Training. His ability to play in the middle of the infield … he can play second, short and third. He’s very skillful in his ability to handle situational at-bats.”

He was hitting .388 with four homers and 20 ribbies in 29 games while playing for the Mexico City Red Devils.

Despite his advanced age, I’m putting him on my Rookie Watch.
