Twins manager Paul Molitor indicated Saturday that Shane Robinson will make the Opening Day roster.
Robinson is expected to platoon in center field with Jordan Schafer to begin the season. The 30-year-old is a career .231/.303/.308 hitter in 402 big league at-bats, so his fantasy value is minimal outside of the deepest AL-only formats. Mar 28 - 10:41 AM

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

The Cardinals released Robinson in mid-November so they could avoid giving him a raise via salary arbitration. The 30-year-old is a good defensive outfielder, but he batted just .231/.303/.308 in five seasons with St. Louis. He'll be organizational outfield depth for Minnesota.
