Oscar M. Robles (born April 9, 1976 in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico) is an infielder with the Philadelphia Phillies organization.

He has spent much of this decade as a third baseman for the Mexico City Red Devils (Diablos Rojos del México), and briefly as an infielder for the Los Angeles Dodgers from May 2005 through 2006. He graduated from Montgomery High School in San Diego, where he had his jersey retired as a pitcher, and set a then-record for San Diego Section career hits (143). He was originally signed by Houston Astros scout Deron Rombach after being drafted in the third round of the June 1994 free agent draft. After being signed, he used some of his bonus money to buy a scoreboard for his high school field. However, the Astros had no use for Robles, so they sent him back to the Mexican Baseball League (LMB), where he batted around .400, until he was called up by the Los Angeles Dodgers, where he played 110 games in the 2005 season. On February 2, 2007, Robles was released by the Dodgers and his contract was sold to the Diablos Rojos del México. He was soon picked up by the San Diego Padres and invited to spring training.

On April 29, 2008, the Phillies claimed Robles off waivers from the Padres and assigned him to their Triple-A Lehigh Valley IronPigs in Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Through 163 games, he has a career batting average of .260. He has little power with only five career home runs.
