If you’re a Kansas City Royals fan and haven’t heard the name Clint Robinson, it’s time to start taking notice of what this powerful first base/DH prospect has been doing in the minor leagues.

No, his name isn’t Hosmer, Moustakas or Myers, but some say he has the potential to become a good hitter in the big leagues.

Robinson is well put-together, standing at 6’5″ and 235 pounds, he already has the makeup of a power-hitter in the majors.

Last season, he displayed this power by hitting 29 homers and driving in 98 runs for the Royals’ Double-A affiliate Northwest Arkansas.

He also showed his ability to hit for average and get on base as well, with a .335 batting average and a .410 OBP for the ’10 season.

The Jefferson City, Missouri native has continued his dominance of minor league pitching into this season, with three homers and five runs driven in through just five games played.

If Robinson continues to hit like this, the Royals will have no choice but to call him up to the big league club, especially if current 1B/DH Kila Ka’aihue continues to struggle like he has at the start of this ’11 campaign.

There’s always going to be a fan that points out that he’s already 26 years old and has only just made it to Triple-A—having never played a game at the big league level for a reason.

Nevertheless, Robinson’s path to the big leagues will be difficult, considering his teammate and one of the organization’s top prospects, Eric Hosmer, will likely be on the major league team by next season, which should force 1B/DH Billy Butler into more of a full-time DH role.

All the same, here’s hoping that Clint Robinson can continue to have a solid season at Omaha and one day make an impact for the Kansas City Royals.
