Nice Little Story on Derrick Robinson

Link:

Robinson is the youngest of 64 players in the Royals' camp. A center fielder, he's been studying at the winged feet of Crisp and David DeJesus.

"It's a great experience, being around Coco and DeJesus and all these guys who have been playing for a while," Robinson said. "They've got me following Coco around, soaking up as much as I can."

That's the idea for Robinson, who won the first Willie Wilson Award as the organization's best baserunner. He led the Carolina League with 62 stolen bases while batting .245 for Wilmington's "Runnin' Rocks."

J.J. Picollo, assistant general manager for scouting/player development, said the Royals felt that exposure to the veteran outfielders plus outfield/baserunning coach Rusty Kuntz would help Robinson.

Kudos to DK for the "winged feet" tag, I like it.

Robinson spent last season at Wilmington, has anyone heard where he'll be in '09?
