Robertson signed a one-year, major-league contract with the Brewers on Tuesday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.
Robertson hit a strong .333/.417/.333 for the Giants last season, though that came in a tiny sample of 24 plate appearances. In 855 total plate appearances over parts of four seasons, the 26-year-old has hit .234/.342/.352, good for a roughly average 97 wRC+. Combined with his ability to play anywhere in the infield as well the outfield corners, he should make a fine bench piece for the Brewers, but he's unlikely to be a particularly exciting fantasy option even if injuries open up unexpected playing time.
Robertson was non-tendered by San Francisco on Wednesday, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
The 26-year-old was acquired from Tampa Bay in August but will end up having a short stay with San Francisco. Robertson went 7-for-21 with four runs and two RBI in 13 games during his brief stint with the Giants.
Robertson was recalled by the Giants on Saturday.
Robertson returns less than a week after he was optioned off the roster Monday. He's gotten into six games for the Giants this season, going 3-for-13 at the plate. Alex Dickerson landed on the paternity list in a corresponding move.
The Giants optioned Robertson to their alternate training site Monday.
San Francisco designated Robertson as its 29th man for Sunday's doubleheader with the Padres, but he didn't see any use off the bench in either contest. He'll now head back to the alternate site in Sacramento as the Giants reduce their roster to 28 ahead of Tuesday's series opener in Seattle.
Robertson was recalled from the alternate training site for Sunday's doubleheader against the Padres, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Robertson was sent to the alternate training site Tuesday but will return to the majors for the doubleheader. The 26-year-old has appeared in six games for the Giants this season and is 3-for-13 with two runs and two RBI.
Robertson was optioned to the alternate training site Tuesday, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
The 26-year-old was called up by the Giants in early September shortly after being acquired from the Rays, and he went 3-for-13 with two runs and two RBI in six appearances. Robertson could rejoin the club later on when more infield depth is needed.
Robertson was recalled by the Giants on Tuesday, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Robertson was recently acquired by the Giants after being designated for assignment by the Rays, and he'll join the major-league club to serve as utility depth. He appeared at second base, third base and shortstop in Tampa Bay last season.
The Giants acquired Robertson from the Rays on Sunday in exchange for cash considerations or a player to be named later.
Robertson will take the 40-man roster spot of outfielder/designated hitter Hunter Pence, who was designated for assignment in a corresponding move. The Giants will assign Robertson to their alternate training site, but he could be up for a promotion the next time the big club requires an extra utility man on the bench. Robertson has been a nearly league-average hitter (96 wRC+, .231/.340/.352 slash line) across parts of three seasons in the majors, and he made double-digit appearances at second base, third base and shortstop with the Rays in 2019.
Robertson was designated for assignment by the Rays on Tuesday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
Robertson will make way on the 40-man roster for reliever Edgar Garcia, who was acquired in a trade from the Phillies in a corresponding move. The 26-year-old utility man owns a respectable .231/.340/.352 slash line in 237 career major-league games, good for a 96 wRC+, so there's a decent chance he winds up getting claimed off waivers.
The Rays optioned Robertson to their taxi squad Sunday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
Robertson's latest stint with the big club lasted one day, as he'll return to the Rays' taxi squad with the team activating reserve catcher Kevan Smith (illness) from the COVID-19 injured list. The Rays appear to view the lefty-hitting Joey Wendle and the righty-hitting Mike Brosseau as their top utility infielders at this time, leaving no room on the active roster for Robertson.
Robertson was recalled by the Rays on Saturday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
Robertson was on the taxi squad for the Rays' current road trip, and he'll join the 30-man roster after Kevan Smith was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Saturday. The utility man should serve as depth for the major-league club until Smith is ready to return. Robertson appeared in 74 major-league games with the Rays last year and had a .607 OPS with 12 extra-base hits, 19 RBI and 24 walks.
Robertson is traveling with the Rays as part of the two-man taxi squad for a five-game road trip that begins Wednesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
The Rays are headed to Atlanta for two games and then have a three-game set with the Orioles over the weekend in Baltimore, and Robertson will join pitcher Anthony Banda as emergency depth. The utility man was optioned to the Port Charlotte alternate training site Monday once Diego Castillo returned from the paternity list.
Robertson was optioned to the Rays' alternate training site Monday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
Robertson made the Rays' Opening Day roster after Diego Castillo landed on the paternity list, but he's now been removed from the roster upon Castillo's return. He did not appear in any of the team's first three games.
Robertson was recalled from the Rays' alternate training site Friday, Steve Carney of Sports Radio 620 WDAE reports.
The 26-year-old failed to make Tampa Bay's initial 30-man roster, but he'll end up making the team with Diego Castillo going on the paternity list. Robertson should operate as a reserve utility infielder.
The Rays optioned Robertson to their alternate training site Thursday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Tampa Bay opted to keep Mike Brosseau as a seventh infielder on the 30-man Opening Day roster over Robertson. Given his ample big-league experience (237 career games) and ability to play all over the diamond and in the outfield, Robertson should rank high on the list for a callup if the Rays need an extra reserve bat at any point in the 60-game season.
Robertson's chances of an Opening Day roster spot appear to strongly hinge on now many pitchers manager Kevin Cash opts to keep, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
The utility asset has been mostly scuffling at the plate since last season, but he still offers a considerable amount of defensive versatility based on his ability to play three infield spots plus the outfield. Robertson and Mike Brosseau, another infielder with defensive flexibility, appear to be in contention for the final utility spot. However, Toribio projects both will likely make the roster if Cash chooses to keep 16 pitchers instead of 17.
Robertson, who's looking for a bounce-back season at the plate after struggling in 2019, came up hitless against two pitchers in Sunday's simulated game, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
The utility asset grounded out against Jose Alvarado and Aaron Loup, extending what has by all accounts been a quiet summer camp for him thus far. Robertson was only serviceable at the plate during Grapefruit League play this spring with a .250 average (6-for-24), so the hope is he manages to generate some momentum over the last 10 days of the ramp-up to the regular season.
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.
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.
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.
