Tyler Robertson (born December 23, 1987) is an American professional baseball pitcher in the Washington Nationals organization.

Career[edit]

The 6 feet 5 inches (1.96 m), 220 pounds (100 kg) left-hander was the Twins' third-round pick in the 2006 Major League Baseball Draft. He made his major league debut on June 26, 2012, where Robertson struck out the first three batters he faced.[1]

In the first half of the 2008 season, Tyler went 4–2 with a 2.76 earned run average and 58 strike outs over 11 starts to help Fort Myers captured the Florida State League first-half West Division title. One of those wins was a complete game 6–1 victory over the Tampa Yankees at Steinbrenner Field.

He was pulled after four innings against the Vero Beach Devil Rays on July 7[year missing] with shoulder soreness, and did not pitch again for the rest of the season.

Robertson mainly throws three pitches — a four-seam fastball and two-seam fastball hovering around 90 mph, as well as a slider in the low-to-mid 80s. The slider is actually his most commonly thrown pitch against left-handed hitters, especially when he is ahead in the count. Robertson has also thrown a small handful of curveballs and changeups.[2]

The Washington Nationals claimed Robertson off waivers on June 7, 2013. He was designated for assignment on November 20, 2013.
