Robinson (ankle) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday. Robinson suffered a sprained ankle in Tuesday's game against the Rays and after giving him a day to test out the injury, the Angels opted to place him on the DL. The Angels selected the contract of Todd Cunningham to take his spot on the active roster. Robinson was slashing .212/.325/.273
Robinson (ankle) is out of Wednesday's lineup, the Orange County Register's Jeff Fletcher reports. This was all but a certainty after he left Tuesday's game with a sprained ankle. It would not be surprising to see him land on the DL prior to the All-Star break along with Daniel Nava (knee), who is also ailing. Jefry Marte is starting in left field for the Angels on Wednesday, and should occupy that position on a semi-regular basis while Robinson and Nava are sidelined.
Robinson suffered a sprained ankle in Tuesday's game against the Rays, Pedro Moura of the Los Angeles Times reports. The Angels are unsure yet if Robinson will require a stint on the DL, but they will nevertheless likely recall an outfielder from Triple-A on Wednesday, as Daniel Nava (patellar tendinitis) is also ailing. Robinson hasn't hit for average (.210) or offered any power (.258 SLG) or done much on the bases (two steals), so he can be left alone in most formats.
Robinson is in the lineup for Monday's matchup with the Twins. Robinson will bat ninth in the order and man center field. Mike Trout normally handles center duties, but suffered a bruised right thumb Sunday. He will instead be used as a DH Monday. If the Angels choose to play it cautious with Trout and leave him at DH for the short term, Robinson could potentially grab a few more starts in center.
Robinson went 1-for-3 with a solo homer, walk and two runs scored in Saturday's 8-7 loss to the Pirates. The 31-year-old was productive for the second straight start, as he followed up a two-hit day on Friday with his first homer of the season. Robinson entered June hitting only .190, but has already boosted his average 51 points due to his production over the last two contests. He won't offer much in the power department, but could serve as an occasional productive punt play in daily leagues when he logs starts in Rafael Ortega's stead.
