Nationals purchased the contract of 1B Clint Robinson from Triple-A Syracuse.

It's a nice story, as the 30-year-old Robinson has played just 13 games in the majors during his career. He earned the spot after batting .327 (16-for-49) with two homers, five doubles, and one triple over 26 games this spring. Look for him to serve as a backup at first base and the outfield.
Apr 4 - 10:45 PM

Clint Robinson hit a grand slam off the Mets' Carlos Torres on Thursday.

The 30-year-old Robinson is about as good of a quad-A player as there is around today, though it doesn't seem all that fair to saddle him with that label when he's never had any chance to prove himself in the majors (he's 3-for-13 lifetime). The Nationals signed him in part because they're worried about losing the out-of-options Tyler Moore. As is, Moore would be the answer at first if Ryan Zimmerman gets hurt. However, if Moore exits, Robinson could be the fallback.
Mar 12 - 6:10 PM

Nationals signed 1B Clint Robinson to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Robinson spent almost all of last season at Triple-A with the Dodgers, batting .312/.401/.534 with 18 homers and 80 RBI. He's merely organizational depth.

Blue Jays sent 1B Clint Robinson outright to Double-A New Hampshire.

Robinson cleared waivers after being designated for assignment earlier this week. The 28-year-old was batting .270/.381/.404 with four home runs, 22 RBI and a .785 OPS through 47 games in Triple-A this season. The Jays will be happy to keep him around as organizational depth.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster. Robinson is batting .270/.381/.404 with four home runs, 22 RBI and a .785 OPS through 47 games in Triple-A this season. There's a chance he'll pass through waivers unclaimed.

Pirates designated 1B Clint Robinson for assignment.

Robinson was acquired this winter from the Royals in a four-player trade but failed to make an impression this spring in Pirates camp. The 28-year-old hit .292/.393/.452 with 13 home runs and 67 RBI in 131 games last summer at the Triple-A level. He could draw some interest on waivers.
Wed, Mar 27, 2013 04:30:00 PM

Pirates acquired 1B Clint Robinson and RHP Vin Mazzaro from the Royals for LHP Luis Rico and RHP Luis Santos.

Another player who was designated for assignment by the Royals last week, Robinson owns a .308/.382/.520 batting line over six seasons in the minor leagues. He turns 28 in February, so he is well past being considered a prospect, but he could end up being useful organizational depth.
Wed, Nov 28, 2012 11:31:00 AM

Royals designated 1B Clint Robinson for assignment.

Robinson, who turns 28 in April, batted .292/.393/.452 with 13 homers and an .845 OPS this season at the Triple-A level and got four at-bats during his first taste of the big leagues in June. He'd probably be better off with a fresh start elsewhere at this point of his career.
