Robles became the top-ranked prospect in the Washington Nationals farm system after the transaction that sent pitcher Lucas Giolito to the Chicago White Sox on December 7, 2016.
Baseball writer Jim Callis predicted that by the end of the 2017 season, Robles would be considered the best overall prospect in baseball.
Robles was regarded as the fifth-best prospect in baseball by MLB Pipeline in July 2017.
Potomac was Robles’ first team of the 2017 season. He was named to the World team’s roster for the 2017 All-Star Futures Game while with Potomac.
The Washington Nationals advanced Robles to the Harrisburg Senators of the Class AA Eastern League on July 24, 2017, after he had played 77 games for Potomac, batting .289 with seven home runs, 33 RBIs, and 16 stolen bases.
Robles finished his minor-league season in Harrisburg, batting .324 with a .883 on-base plus slugging percentage in 37 games with the Senators. He hit three home runs, drove in 14 runs, and stole 11 bases.
On September 7, 2017, the Washington Nationals promoted Robles to the major leagues for the first time after the 2017 Eastern League season was completed.
He made his Major League Baseball debut against the Philadelphia Phillies on that day, flying out to a deep right field in a pinch-hit appearance, making him the youngest player to play in the 2017 season.
Robles reached base safely for the first time in his major-league career after getting hit by a pitch on September 10, 2017.
