Luis Robert impresses with his motor once again

On Tuesday, Luis Robert received raved reviews about his motor from Baseball America.

On Wednesday, Robert provided more proof of how his effort augments his skills. He reached base with a single, and a well-struck one at that:

He then moved himself into scoring position, then stole another 90 feet with a great jump on the pitcher.

And then he scored on a groundout to second. So one can see the upside in that sequence alone, and one can also see the challenge ahead in making sure Robert doesn’t throw his body around too recklessly.
