Royals prospect Derrick Robinson earns Gold Glove Award

Matt Ryerson-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Triple-A Omaha outfielder Derrick Robinson has earned a minor league Gold Glove award.

Kansas City Royals prospect Derrick Robinson, a member of Triple-A Omaha, has earned a minor league award for his great play in the field. The 25-year old outfielder was named a member of the 2012 Minor League Rawlings Gold Glove Award team, in the left field position, on Thursday.

Robinson was originally a fourth round pick by the Royals in the 2006 MLB Entry Draft and has played with every team in the Royals organization except for the big league club during his stay in the organization. 2012 was his first season at Triple-A Omaha, where he bolstered his good fielding with a .268 batting average over 116 games. He had 204 putouts over 108 games played in the outfield.

This is only the second year that the Minor League version of the Gold Glove has been awarded. Prior to that, a similar award was given out in the 1960's called the 'Silver Glove'.
