Robinson (elbow) received an invitation to major-league spring training Monday, Amy Gutierrez of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Robinson inked a minor-league deal with the Giants in mid-October, and he'll have the opportunity to begin the spring with the big-league club. He appeared in just five major-league contests a season ago with the Cardinals, going 1-for-7 with three strikeouts. Despite undergoing partial Tommy John surgery in August, it appears as though Robinson will be ready to go for camp.
Robinson (elbow) signed a minor-league contract with the Giants on Thursday, Kegan Lowe of Baseball America reports.
Robinson will enter the Giants' minor-league system in 2020 after being released by the Cardinals at the end of the 2019 season. The 27-year-old underwent Tommy John surgery at the beginning of August. In 55 games with Triple-A Memphis in 2019, Robinson hit .265/.385/.423 with six home runs and 28 RBI.
Robinson (elbow) was released by the Cardinals on Wednesday, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Robinson had already been ruled out for the remainder of the season after undergoing partial Tommy John surgery earlier in the month, so the Cardinals opted to cut ties with the utility man to free up a spot on their 40-man roster ahead of September. The 27-year-old has appeared in 100 big-league games across the past three seasons, slashing .202/.296/.359 with nine home runs and two steals in 253 plate appearances.
Robinson (elbow) had a partial Tommy John surgery on his left elbow Thursday, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.
Robinson was put on the injured list at Triple-A Memphis back on June 26 with the injury, and Thursday's surgery was considered just a partial repair of the elbow. That puts Robinson on a timeline to likely return by the beginning of spring training. The fact that Robinson throws right-handed even though he hits left-handed should help with a speedier recovery time than that usually associated with a full Tommy John surgery as well. Robinson spent five games at the big-league level this past season, but the majority of his time (55 games) was logged with the Redbirds, for which he slashed .265/.385/.423 over 234 plate appearances.
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 optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Tuesday.
Robinson was called up as outfield depth Monday and was needed right away as Tyler O'Neill left the game with an arm injury. He will be replaced in a bench role by Yairo Munoz, who was recalled in a corresponding move.
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's spot on the Opening Day roster is now locked in with Jedd Gyorko (calf) opening the season on the injured list, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.
Robinson had already helped his cause with a solid spring at the plate, but Gyorko's season-opening absence helps cement Robinson's status. The 26-year-old has hit .268 with eight RBI over 56 Grapefruit League at-bats and is capable of filling in at all three outfield positions.
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.
Robinson was traded from the Rangers to the Cardinals on Tuesday in exchange for Patrick Wisdom.
Robinson split time between Triple-A Round Rock and the majors in 2018, hitting .303/.379/.569 in 53 games for the Express but struggling to a .183/.288/.294 line across 47 games with the Rangers. The 26-year-old should fill a utility role for the Cardinals while offering a left-handed bat off the bench.
Robinson was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock on Friday.
Robinson was expected to return to the Rangers in September when rosters expand, but rejoins the team a few weeks early with Delino DeShields dealing with a finger fracture. Robinson could see some starts in center field along with Carlos Tocci.
Robinson is expected to come back to Texas when rosters expand Sept. 1, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Robinson was recently sent down to Triple-A Round Rock when Delino DeShields (concussion) came off the disabled list, but Rangers manager Jeff Banister was pleased with the adjustments Robinson's made since his first demotion in May. "We like what we saw from Drew," Banister said. "He made some nice adjustments in the batter's box. We know what he can do defensively and with his versatility. He had more consistent at-bats, the swing-and-miss is down. We like the improvements, and we like the adjustments." For now, Robinson will ply his craft at Round Rock while Delino DeShields is evaluated as the center fielder for next season. DeShields has been demoted twice due to a poor batting average and on-base percentage. If DeShields doesn't clean up his approach, the Rangers could move onto Robinson as the center fielder in 2019.
Robinson was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on Sunday, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Robinson played sparingly during his most recent cup of coffee with Texas, but he manager to go 2-for-6 with a double and five runs scored with the chances he did get. He'll head back to the minors to make room for Delino DeShields to return from the disabled list, though his positional versatility makes him an obvious callup whenever another Ranger position player gets injured in the future.
Robinson will start in center field Sunday, Gerry Fraley of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Robinson was called up from Triple-A Round Rock on Saturday after the Rangers placed Delino DeShields Jr. (concussion) on the disabled list. He'll split the center field duties with Carlos Tocci, who started Saturday. Robinson hit just .175 during his time in the majors but had a .930 OPS in 223 plate appearances while at Round Rock.
Robinson was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock on Saturday.
Robinson is up to replace Delino DeShields (concussion). He's done very little in his previous opportunities with Texas this season, hitting just .175/.258/.238 in 26 games.
Robinson (hip) was activated from the disabled list and optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on Monday.
Robinson didn't do enough for the Rangers prior to his injury to merit a return to the big leagues. He hit just .175/.258/.238 in 89 plate appearances and struck out 50.6 percent of the time. With the ability to play both middle infield and center field, he has multiple routes back to the big leagues, but nothing in his track record suggests he'll be a viable fantasy option if and when he returns.
Robinson (hip) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Frisco on Sunday.
Robinson will serve as Frisco's designated hitter in his first minor-league rehab game. The Rangers haven't announced how many rehab games Robinson will need to appear in before returning to the majors, but he could conceivably be back in the majors during the coming week. He's been out since May 5 with left hip soreness.
Robinson (hip) will receive an injection and head to extended spring training for a few games, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.
Robinson landed on the 10-day disabled list Monday due to left hip soreness. It appears as though he should be able to return to the club at some point next week, but more should be known regarding his status once he's able to participate in baseball activities.
