Robertson will start at shortstop and bat fifth Wednesday against the Blue Jays, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. After driving in a run and reaching base three times Tuesday, Robertson will be rewarded with a third straight start and a promotion upward in the lineup. Adeiny Hechavarria still looks to be manager Kevin Cash's preferred option at shortstop, but Hechevarria's poor production at the plate since he was acquired from the Marlins could allow Robertson to begin eating into his at-bats on a more regular basis.
Robertson went 2-for-4 with an RBI from a bases-loaded walk and also had a single, double and scored once in Tuesday's 6-4 win over the Blue Jays. Robertson wreaked some havoc out of the nine hole, producing his first multi-hit game since June 25. The 23-year-old shortsop has seen two consecutive starts, but he's taken the field in only four out of a possible 11 games since returning from a stint on the DL due to neck spasms.
Robertson was activated from the disabled list and is starting at shortstop Friday against the Brewers, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. It will be Robertson's first big-league game action since June 25, as he returns from a long DL stint caused by neck spasms. Don't expect the 23-year-old to get too many opportunities with Adeiny Hechavarria stabilized as the primary shortstop, though he could be in line for backup duties at second base with Matt Duffy (heel) still sidelined.
Robertson (neck) went 2-for-4 with a double for Triple-A Durham against Charlotte on Wednesday, playing all nine innings at shortstop. The fact that he put in a full game marked another important step for the 23-year-old, and he will now be reassessed for a potential activation. If the Rays deem him ready for return, he could potentially join the team as early as Thursday.
Robertson (neck), who was hit in the hand by a pitch while playing for High-A Charlotte on Saturday, will move his rehab to Triple-A Durham on Tuesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. The rehabbing shortstop wasn't seriously injured by the pitch, so he'll resume his work just a level away from the big leagues with the Bulls. Robertson played in four games with the Stone Crabs, hitting .556 with a home run and three RBI over 10 plate appearances.
