Chris Cotillo of reports that Derrick Robinson will be sidelined 4-6 months after undergoing shoulder surgery Tuesday.

Reds designated OF Derrick Robinson for assignment.

The 25-year-old has already seen plenty of action in a reserve role with the Reds this season, hitting .254/.325/.654 with no homers, seven RBI and three stolen bases over 173 at-bats. He remains irrelevant for fantasy purposes.

Derrick Robinson did not play Saturday due to ongoing left shoulder soreness.

Robinson continues to be bother by an injury he originally suffered back on July 9 on a slide into home plate. He's not playing Sunday, either, though he wouldn't have started against lefty Jeff Locke even if he were healthy. Consider Robinson day-to-day.

Derrick Robinson went 4-for-5 with a double against the A's on Tuesday,

Not only was it his first four-hit game as a major leaguer, but it was his first three-hit game. Robinson figures to lose at-bats now that the Reds have Chris Heisey back, but manager Dusty Baker was able to employ both tonight with Heisey DHing in Oakland. He's hit .301 in 93 at-bats.

Robinson, who was signed to a minor league deal this offseason, is hitting a cool .346 (9-for-26) with four RBI this spring. He's an extreme longshot to crack the opening day roster however, and is slated to open the season in the outfield at Triple-A Louisville.
