One more honor for Luis Robert: MLB Pipeline’s Hitter of the Year.
“I was fortunate enough to have him parts of two years,” said Birmingham Barons hitting coach Charles Poe, who also worked with Robert during his AFL stint. “We knew what to expect when he got there. He was everything he was meant to be, and then some. He and Eloy [Jimenez] are two of the best players I’ve ever seen in my years in the game. All five tools are electric.”
