    • Robinson cleared waivers and accepted an assignment to Triple-A Syracuse, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports. The 32-year-old wasn't needed on the major-league roster after Adam Lind was added to the fray, and after no team jumped at the chance to sign Robinson off waivers he will return to the minors. He does possess a bit of power as well as some positional versatility, so he could climb back to the nation's capital if he tears up Triple-A.

    • Nationals' Clint Robinson: Placed on waivers
      By RotoWire Staff

      Robinson was placed on waivers by the Nationals on Tuesday, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports. Robinson was battling for the backup role at first base, but that job will now go to recent signee Adam Lind, while this also clears the way for Wilmer Difo and Michael Taylor to fight for a final bench spot. Teams will now have 72 hours to claim the 32-year-old, and if not, he'll have the option to head to Triple-A Syracuse if he wants.

    • Robinson's spot on the major league roster is up in the air after the Nationals signed Adam Lind on Monday, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports. After a down year, Robinson seemed to still have the inside track to a big league job given the lack of internal options to back up Ryan Zimmerman at first base. However, the 31-year-old's spot is in jeopardy after Lind joined the fray, as he does almost everything Robinson does better. Robinson will have to impress during spring training if he wants to stick around in the nation's capital, otherwise he seems destined for an organizational depth role in 2017.

    • Robinson will head into 2017 penciled into a spot on the Nationals' 25-man roster. His numbers took a big step backwards last season, but the Nats still like Robinson as a source of left-handed power off the bench and at first base when Ryan Zimmerman is unavailable. That role doesn't provide him with a lot of fantasy value, but unless a prospect like Matt Skole has a big spring, there aren't any internal options to pressure Robinson for his spot.

    • Nationals' Clint Robinson: Gets rare start Tuesday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Robinson is in the lineup Tuesday, batting eighth as the Nationals' DH. Manager Dusty Baker will take advantage of playing in an AL park on Tuesday by having both Ryan Zimmerman and Robinson in the lineup. Robinson, who has only started six games in August, is slashing .235/.304/.362 across 149 at-bats on the season. That said, he'll provide a left-handed bat with some power against Baltimore righty Kevin Gausman on Tuesday.
