The Cardinals optioned Robinson to Triple-A Memphis on Tuesday. Robinson's stay with the big club lasted just one day, with the utility man delivering a pinch-hit single in his lone at-bat during Monday's 13-5 win over the Brewers. His removal from the active roster clears a spot for pitcher Daniel Ponce de Leon, who is scheduled to start Tuesday.
Robinson was recalled from Triple-A Memphis on Monday. Robinson has already had two separate stints in St. Louis this season but only has six at-bats and zero hits. This latest stay may not last particularly long, as the Cardinals will need a starter Tuesday in place of Michael Wacha (knee).
Robinson was recalled from Triple-A Memphis on Monday. Robinson will provide additional outfield depth for the Cardinals for the time being while Harrison Bader deals with a hamstring injury. He's appeared in three games for the Cardinals this season (all as a pinch hitter), going 0-for-3 with a strikeout in those appearances. Giovanny Gallegos was returned to the minors in a corresponding move.
Robinson was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Friday, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. The 26-year-old was able to crack the Opening Day roster as Jedd Gyorko (calf) started the season on the injured list, and Gyorko's return Friday spelled an end to this big-league stint. Robinson appeared solely as a pinch hitter and went 0-for-3 with one strikeout through the first six games of the year.
Robinson went 3-for-4 with a double, four RBI, a run scored and two stolen bases Thursday. After a slow start to the spring, Robinson has collected six hits in his last 11 at-bats. He now has 10 hits in 39 at-bats, but has also struck out 16 times. This hot stretch is coming at the right time for Robinson as he is competing for a bench spot in a crowded Cardinals lineup, though it appears likely he'll begin the season at Triple-A Memphis.
