Angels designated OF Shane Robinson for assignment.

The move clears a spot for Andrew Bailey's return to the 40-man roster. Robinson, 32, batted just .173/.257/.235 over 111 plate appearances this season. He was an obvious non-tender candidate this winter.

Shane Robinson went 1-for-3 with an RBI single in Tuesday's loss to the Dodgers.

Robinson's second inning RBI single brought home the only run to score against Dodgers terminator Clayton Kershaw. The 31-year-old outfielder was cut by the Indians at the end of March but latched on with the Angels just days later. After a month in the minors, he earned a call-up at the beginning of May and is 3-for-12 in limited action to this point. There is no fantasy intrigue here.

Indians released OF Shane Robinson.

Robinson went 6-for-21 (.286) this spring, but recently missed some time while dealing with a personal matter. He probably wouldn't have made the team even if he was around, but he should find another opportunity relatively soon.

Indians signed OF Shane Robinson to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Robinson batted just .250/.299/.322 in 197 plate appearances this summer for the Twins and he owns a brutal .237/.302/.313 slash line for his career. But the 31-year-old is a versatile defender in the outfield and he might have a decent shot at an Opening Day roster spot in Cleveland, where Michael Brantley (shoulder) is likely to miss the first month of the 2016 season.

According to the St. Paul Pioneer Press, the Twins are interested in bringing back Shane Robinson.

Robinson was sent outright to Triple-A Rochester on October 21 and subsequently elected free agency. Most of his value stems from his defense, as the 31-year-old outfielder slashed just .250/.299/.322 with no homers and 16 RBI across 83 games (180 at-bats) with the Twins in 2014. Regardless of whether he ends up back with the Twins or on a different team, he'll likely be serving a bench role once more in 2016.
