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. May 18 - 12:45 AM

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

Robinson caught on quickly after being released by the Indians on Tuesday. The Angels will give him a look for a few days and haven't ruled out him winning a bench job.

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.

Shane Robinson has elected free agency.

The 31-year-old outfielder appeared in 83 games in a reserve role with the Twins, slashing .250/.299/.322 with no homers and 16 RBI. With very little power or speed, he'll have to rely primarily on his defensive prowess to compete for a bench spot on another squad this coming spring.

Twins sent OF Shane Robinson outright to Triple-A Rochester.

Robinson's eligible for free agency if he opts not to accept the assignment. The 30-year-old outfielder saw a decent amount of time with the big league club this season, hitting .250/.299/.322 with seven doubles, three triples, 16 RBI and six steals over the course of 180 at-bats.

Shane Robinson left Wednesday's game against the Reds after being hit on the left elbow by a pitch.

Robinson stayed in to run the bases after being pelted by the Johnny Cueto offering, but he appeared to be in a lot of pain so it's no surprise he eventually exited. It's unclear whether he'll need to have X-rays.

Twins purchased the contract of OF Shane Robinson from Triple-A Rochester.

Robinson made the Twins' Opening Day roster by going 13-for-46 (.283) in 17 games this spring in the Grapefruit League. The 30-year-old can play all around the outfield defensively, but he's a .231/.303/.308 career hitter at the major league level. There is no fantasy relevance here.
