Rays' Daniel Robertson: Pivotal year upcoming
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson is one of the members of the Rays roster with something to prove during a potential 2020 season, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.

The versatile utility asset continued to put in time all over the infield in 2019 -- Robertson saw action at second base, shortstop and third base -- and he's also toiled in the outfield at the big-league level. However, Robertson saw a major downturn at the plate last season, slashing an underwhelming .213/.312/.295 across 237 plate appearances while also suffering a midseason knee injury that required surgery. The 26-year-old re-upped with the Rays for $1 million in what was his second year of arbitration, so salary won't be an issue in and of itself; however, if other options such as Mike Brosseau or Nate Lowe are able to impress during a 2020 season that appears destined to feature expanded rosters if it does unfold, Robertson could be surpassed if he isn't able to make notable improvement at the plate.

Rays' Daniel Robertson: Still in play for roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson remains in contention for an Opening Day roster spot after the Rays optioned Mike Brosseau and Nate Lowe on Thursday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

Robertson competed for a utility role before spring training was suspended, hitting .250 (6-for-24) with a double, an RBI, three walks and four runs across 11 Grapefruit League games. Robertson's strong glove and ability to play second base, shortstop and third base certainly make him valuable from a defensive perspective, but he'll need to bounce back offensively after generating a pedestrian .213/.312/.295 line across 74 games last season.

Rays' Daniel Robertson: Solid thus far in spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson is hitting .313 (5-for-16) with a double, an RBI, three walks and three runs across his first eight Grapefruit League games.

Robertson is playing on a one-year contract in 2020 and is looking to cement a utility spot this spring, although he faces formidable competition from Joey Wendle and Mike Brosseau, both of whom are having solid camps as well. The 25-year-old saw a major statistical downturn at the plate last season (.213/.312/.295 across 237 plate appearances), but he continued to flash considerable defensive versatility by serving as an above-average glove at second base, third base and shortstop. The battle for the utility role may ultimately come down to the final days of the Grapefruit League slate.

Rays' Daniel Robertson: Gets seven figures
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson and the Rays agreed to a one-year, $1.025 million deal Friday, avoiding arbitration, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

Robertson struggled with injury and underperformance last season. In 74 big-league games, he managed just two homers while posting a poor .213/.312/.295 slash line.

Rays' Daniel Robertson: Not on ALDS roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson failed to make the Rays' ALDS roster.

Robertson made the wild-card squad against lefty Sean Manaea, but the Rays will carry more left-handed bats against a righty-heavy Astros rotation. Willy Adames, Yandy Diaz and Matt Duffy are the team's only right-handed infielders.

Rays' Daniel Robertson: Makes wild-card squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson is on the Rays' wild-card roster.

The Rays have a number of decent infielders and can construct their postseason roster in a number of different ways. Robertson makes the cut with a deep bench for the one-game playoff but may not be on the squad if the Rays qualify for the ALDS.

Rays' Daniel Robertson: Keeps slugging in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson went 1-for-3 with a two-run triple in a win over the Blue Jays on Sunday.

Robertson's second-inning three-bagger plated Kevin Kiermaier and Willy Adames to erase an early 2-1 deficit, affording the Rays a lead they wouldn't relinquish the rest of the way. The 25-year-old utility man has four RBI over the last two games with the help of a pair of extra-base hits, his first two since returning from Triple-A Durham on Sept. 1.

Rays' Daniel Robertson: Plates pair in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson went 2-for-4 with a run-scoring single and an RBI double in a win over the Blue Jays on Saturday.

Robertson made noise out of the bottom of the order with his pair of timely hits, and his ninth-inning single that plated Kevin Kiermaier gave the Rays some breathing room by extending their lead to 5-3. Robertson has appeared in four games since returning from Triple-A Durham earlier in the month, going 3-for-8 over that stretch.

Rays' Daniel Robertson: Returns to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson was recalled from Triple-A Durham on Sunday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

Robertson's bat had experienced a resurgence over the last five games with the Bulls, as the utility man had gone 10-for-21 heading into Saturday. Robertson will serve as a late-inning defensive option for manager Kevin Cash and could draw occasional starts versus left-handed pitchers in September.

Rays' Daniel Robertson: Rediscovers stroke in recent games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson is 10-for-21 with three walks, three RBI and three runs over his last five games with Triple-A Durham.

Robertson seems to have snapped out of the doldrums that plagued him earlier in August, with his recent surge pushing his line with the Bulls to a respectable .260/.374/.327 over 28 games. Robertson's positional versatility is expected to earn him a callup when rosters expand Sunday, and he'll apparently make a return to the big leagues with some offensive momentum.

Rays' Daniel Robertson: Struggles continue in Durham
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson is slashing just .205/.327/.277 across 23 games with Triple-A Durham since being optioned to the Bulls on July 30.

The 25-year-old's struggles at the big-league level this season (.202/.311/.281) helped lead to his demotion to the Bulls after his activation from the injured list at the end of July. Robertson has had his moments at the plate during August -- he generated four straight two-hit tallies as part of a five-game hitting streak earlier in the month -- but he's subsequently gone 1-for-23 over the last seven games. Robertson's considerable positional versatility could lead to a majors return in September when rosters expand, but it would be helpful if he could build some momentum with the bat prior to that unfolding.

Rays' Daniel Robertson: Activated, optioned
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson (knee) was activated off the 10-day injured list and optioned to Triple-A Durham on Tuesday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

Robertson hadn't been particularly effective prior to landing on the injured list in late June, hitting .202/.311/.281 in 59 games. His positional versatility remains useful, but the Rays have a number of similar players and added another one on Sunday with their trade for Eric Sogard. It may take an injury to open up a spot for Robertson to return.

Rays' Daniel Robertson: Another full game in field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson (knee) went 1-for-4 with an RBI single and a walk in Triple-A Durham's win over Gwinnett on Monday while playing all nine innings at shortstop.

It was the third straight full game for Robertson in the field, lending credence to the notion he'll be ready for activation when first eligible Tuesday. The 25-year-old utility man will be a welcome returnee to a big-league roster due to his positional versatility and the fact the infield is currently down one regular in Yandy Diaz (foot).

Rays' Daniel Robertson: Homers, plays nine innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson (knee) played nine innings at shortstop and went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Triple-A Durham's win over Buffalo on Saturday.

It was a momentous night for Robertson all the way around, blasting the first homer of his rehab assignment in his first game with the Bulls while also accomplishing his goal of playing nine innings at shortstop. Robertson was pulled in the top of the 10th to presumably avoid overexertion of his recovering knee, but his overall outlook is increasingly bright after Saturday's developments.

Rays' Daniel Robertson: Expects to play nine innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson (knee) will play nine innings at shortstop for Triple-A Durham on Saturday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

Robertson was just moved up to the Triple-A roster and appears to be full steam ahead with his progress from minor knee surgery. He'll likely require a few rehab games without any complications before rejoining the Rays.

Rays' Daniel Robertson: Moves rehab to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson (knee) will move up to Triple-A Durham to continue his rehab assignment, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Robertson will join the Bulls after appearing in a trio of rehab games for High-A Charlotte, going 2-for-9 with a double and two RBI in those contests. He'll likely need to appear in multiple rehab games for Durham before the Rays consider activating him from the injured list.

July 25, 2019 02:28 AM
Rays' Daniel Robertson: Plates pair in rehab game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson (knee) played five innings at third base and went 2-for-4 with a two-run single and a double in High-A Charlotte's win over Jupiter on Wednesday.

Robertson's pair of hits were the first two of his rehab assignment. The versatile infielder has now played five innings apiece at second and third base, respectively, over his first pair of minor-league contests.

Rays' Daniel Robertson: Reaches safely in first rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson (knee) went 0-for-2 with a walk while logging five innings at second base in High-A Charlotte's loss to Jupiter on Monday.

It was a positive initial step for Robertson in what should be the final phase of his recovery, The 25-year-old will presumably ramp up his participation as the week unfolds until he works up to playing a full game in the field.

July 21, 2019 03:24 PM
Rays' Daniel Robertson: Rehab assignment begins Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson (knee) will begin a rehab assignment Monday with High-A Charlotte, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

This rehab assignment was anticipated as soon as this weekend, and will commence next week. His initial timeline from June 24 was that he would miss at least one month. Robertson will likely need close to a week's worth of rehab games before he gets activated.

July 13, 2019 04:52 PM
Rays' Daniel Robertson: Approaching rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson (knee) could start a rehab assignment within the next week, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Robertson has made quick progress recovering from a June 24 arthroscopic surgery on his right knee. The nearing rehab assignment means that the second baseman could possibly return to the majors in late July and give the Rays some much-needed infield depth. Prior to the injury, Robertson was slashing .202/.311/.281 with two home runs, 22 runs and 15 RBI in 59 games.
