Van Horn on Robinson
"Kyle had some injuries to work through last season. We're looking for him to be a big contributor to our team. He's a very good outfielder and can play some first base. He's got some power and had a tremendous fall, offensively. Kyle proved that he can hit in the four- or five-hole for us. He's very talented. We hope that he'll have a big senior season."
