The Rays officially placed Robertson (knee) on the 10-day injured list Saturday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports. As was reported after the Rays' victory over the Athletics on Friday, Robertson will be shut down through at least June 30 while he works back from right knee inflammation. Tampa Bay selected infielder Michael Brosseau's contract from Triple-A Durham so Robertson's spot on the active roster could get filled.
Robertson is dealing with right knee inflammation and will be placed on the 10-day injured list prior to Saturday's game against the Athletics, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports. Tampa Bay plans to promote infielder Mike Brosseau from Triple-A Durham to fill in for Robertson as a utility option. There weren't any indications in recent days that Robertson had been nursing an injury, but he went unused off the bench in both of the Rays' past two contests.
Robertson was recalled from Triple-A Durham and will start at third base and bat ninth Wednesday against the Yankees, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports. He'll assume the active roster spot of corner infielder Yandy Diaz, who was placed on the 10-day injured list with right hamstring discomfort. Robertson's ability to play three infield spots should give him multiple avenues into the lineup, but the newly reinstated Joey Wendle offers similar versatility and may be the likelier bet to replace Diaz when the Rays oppose right-handed pitchers.
Robertston was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Saturday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports. He had been getting starts, primarily against lefties, but with Joey Wendle coming off the injured list, the Rays were carrying three second basemen (Brandon Lowe being the other), so Robertson is the odd man out. Jake Faria was recalled in a corresponding move.
Robertson is not in Saturday's lineup against the Twins, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports. Robertson is in the midst of a modest seven-game hitting streak, hitting .269 with zero home runs and six strikeouts over that stretch. Christian Arroyo will start at third base and hit sixth.
