Robert Andino went 2-for-5 with a go-ahead RBI single in Friday’s 6-5 win over the Pirates.

Best known for his days with the Orioles, Andino hadn’t appeared in the majors since 2013 prior to this week, but he played the role of unlikely hero when he hit a liner to right-center field to drive in J.T. Realmuto in the top of the ninth inning. The 32-year-old made the start in left field on Friday, but we’re not expecting much in the way of fantasy value here. Coming into Friday’s action, he owned a .232/.294/.318 batting line in the majors.

Marlins purchased the contract of INF Robert Andino from Triple-A New Orleans.

Marlins signed INF Robert Andino to a minor league contract.

Andino has not appeared in the majors since 2013, when he batted .184/.253/.237 in 85 plate appearances with the Marlins. The 31-year-old utility infielder is a .232/.294/.318 career hitter at the big league level.

Pirates re-signed INF Robert Andino to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Andino was acquired from the Mariners last July and will remain with the organization. The 29-year-old is a .232/.294/.318 career hitter in the majors.

Pirates acquired INF Robert Andino from the Mariners in exchange for a player to be named later.

Andino batted just .184 for the Mariners earlier this season before losing his roster spot. He'll provide minor league depth for the Pirates.

Mariners sent INF Robert Andino outright to Triple-A Tacoma.

Andino was designated for assignment last week but has cleared waivers and will remain in the organization. He batted just .184 (14-for-76) with the M's before losing his roster spot.

Mariners designated INF Robert Andino for assignment.

Andino gets the boot after batting just .184 (14-for-76) with a 27/7 K/BB ratio in 29 games. Carlos Triunfel has been promoted from Triple-A Tacoma to replace him on the active roster, but the move could set the wheels in motion for Brad Miller to eventually make his way to the majors.

Mariners manager Eric Wedge said Wednesday that Robert Andino has replaced Brendan Ryan as the team's regular shortstop.

Ryan is arguably the game's best defensive shortstop, but he's hitting .143 (8-for-56) this season and has a .530 OPS dating back to the start of last season. Of course, Andino owns a .233/.294/.321 batting line and a .615 OPS, so it's doubtful he'll be an upgrade. And we know he can't pick it like Ryan. It's an odd move for a team with many more issues, but Andino could be worth a flier in AL-only formats as long as he's getting the opportunity.

Mariners re-signed INF Robert Andino to a one-year contract.

Terms of the deal have not yet been disclosed. It was a surprising move to see him non-tendered, so this gives some clarity to the situation. He'll compete with Brendan Ryan for the Mariners' starting shortstop job.

Mariners non-tendered INF Robert Andino.

This one comes as a bit of a surprise, as Mariners GM Jack Zduriencik recently commented that Andino would be given a chance to compete for the starting shortstop job.

Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik said new acquisition Robert Andino will be given a chance to compete for the starting job at shortstop.

Brendan Ryan is the best defensive shortstop in the game, but he hit just .194 with a .555 OPS this season. While Ryan is probably still the favorite for the gig, the M's aren't pigeon-holing Andino as utility guy. "Anybody you bring in, you don't put limitations on," Zduriencik said. "I talked to Robert and he said, 'I've been a shortstop my whole life. I played a lot of second base these last few years, but I'm a shortstop in my heart of hearts.' So I told him to work hard this offseason and then come in and compete for a position. Don't put any limitations on yourself and we won't put any on you. As far as I'm concerned, he's one of our players and will come in and compete for a position."

Mariners acquired INF Robert Andino from the Orioles for OF Trayvon Robinson.

Andino batted .211/.283/.305 with seven home runs, 28 RBI and a .588 OPS in 431 plate appearances with the Orioles this season while earning $1.3 million. He's arbitration-eligible for the second time this winter. The Mariners will likely use him as a backup at second base and shortstop.

Robert Andino is back in the Orioles' lineup Sunday.

Andino didn't play Saturday after leaving Friday's game when he was hit in the helmet by a pitch. He's passed concussion tests and is back in there against Felix Doubront and the Red Sox.

Robert Andino will undergo one more concussion test before Sunday's game, but maintains hope that he'll be able to return to the lineup for the series finale against the Red Sox.

Early reports stated that Andino passed his baseline concussion test before Saturday's game, but that the Orioles wanted him to rest another game as a precautionary measure. As long as he passes again on Sunday morning, expect him to start at second base.
