Tucson Padres outfielder Daniel Robertson's name is not on the San Diego Padres list of Top Prospects. Nor is his name on anyone's list of Top 100 Prospects in professional baseball. The Oregon State product is in the Padres conversation, it's just tough to say where.
In his second season at Triple-A, Robertson is having just about the same kind of campaign that made him Tucson's lone Pacific Coast League All-Star in 2012.
The 2008 33rd round pick is hitting .301 through 65 games with 14 doubles, five triples and 14 steals. Last season he hit .302 in 129 games with 28 doubles and 18 steals. He's on a pace this season to hit 27 doubles with 28 steals.
Robertson is about as consistent a player as you can ask for. He's played in just under 90% of his team's games since being drafted and has for the most part hit .300 with 20 steals in each of his five Minor League seasons.
