Indians re-signed OF Daniel Robertson to a minor league contract.

Robertson was pushed off the Indians' 40-man roster last week to clear a spot for Jay Bruce, but the 31-year-old outfielder will remain with the organization and could even return to the major league level in September.

Indians designated OF Daniel Robertson for assignment.

Robertson gets the boot to clear a roster spot for Jay Bruce, who was acquired from the Mets on Wednesday. Robertson, 31, batted just .225/.287/.338 in 88 plate appearances earlier this season with Cleveland.
Aug 10 - 12:01 PM

Indians optioned OF Daniel Robertson to Triple-A Columbus.

He'll head back down to the minors with Michael Brantley and Brandon Guyer coming off the disabled list. Robertson has appeared in 32 games with the Indians while batting .225/.287/.338 with one homer and seven RBI.
Jun 26 - 3:16 PM

Daniel Robertson went 2-for-4 and hit his first big-league homer Tuesday against the Dodgers.

The Indians probably would have pinch-hit for Robertson in the ninth... except they had just hit Bradley Zimmer for Austin Jackson and Lonnie Chisenhall for Roberto Perez. As a result, Robertson, who only starts versus lefties, got to hit against righty Chris Hatcher and homered for the first time in 320 major league at-bats since making his major league debut with the Rangers in 2014. It didn't win the game -- the Indians were down 7-2 when he delivered the three-run shot -- but it was a great moment for the 31-year-old Triple-A veteran.
Jun 13 - 10:53 PM

Daniel Robertson went 2-for-5 with three RBI in Sunday's win over the Royals.

Robertson hit a two-run double in the second inning and an RBI single in the fourth. The latter hit gave the Royals a 6-0 lead. There is no fantasy intrigue, here, as the infielder is hitting just .237/.310/.342 in 15 games this season.
Jun 4 - 7:21 PM

Indians purchased the contract of OF Daniel Robertson from Triple-A Columbus.

Robertson, 31, had seven hits in his first 15 at-bats for Columbus. He'll back up at all three outfield positions.
May 14 - 10:03 AM

Daniel Robertson went 2-for-3 and scored a run in Thursday's loss to the Dodgers.

The 31-year-old journeyman signed a minor league contract with the Indians in November and is trying to make the club as a backup outfielder. He had a .263 batting average in 19 at-bats with the Mariners last year. He has also seen small amounts of big-league time with the Rangers and Angels in prior seasons.
Mar 2 - 7:26 PM

Indians signed OF Daniel Robertson to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Robertson was most recently with the Mariners before opting for free agency in mid-October. He saw relatively little action with the major league club this past season, picking up hits in five of 19 at-bats. With a career .273/.322/.325 batting line in 271 career MLB at-bats, his best hope this coming spring will be to carve out a role as a bench extra.

Daniel Robertson has elected to become a free agent.

Robertson was removed from the Mariners' 40-man roster back in August. The 31-year-old is a career .273/.322/.325 hitter in the majors.

Mon, Aug 22, 2016 11:13:00 AM

Mariners designated OF Daniel Robertson for assignment.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for the addition of Joe Wieland. Robertson is a career .273/.322/.325 hitter at the major league level and stands a pretty good chance at clearing waivers.

Robertson slashed .263/.300/.316 in 21 plate appearances with the M's. He is a .273/.322/.325 career hitter.

Mariners purchased the contract of OF Daniel Robertson from Triple-A Tacoma.

The 30-year-old outfielder was hitting .262/.327/.391 with four homers and 27 RBI in 73 games at Triple-A. He'll add bench depth for the M's and is completely irrelevant for fantasy purposes.

Robertson was designated for assignment on December 18 to make room on the 40-man roster for Hisashi Iwakuma, but passed through waivers untouched.

In 277 plate appearances with the Rangers and Angels over the past two seasons, the 30-year-old outfielder hit .274/.324/.325.
