Andino was designated for assignment Thursday, Joe Capozzi of the Palm Beach Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Andino has played in just 13 games for the Marlins this season, during which he's gone 7-for-24 (.292) at the plate. The decision to designate Andino for assignment was made so there would be room for the newly-acquired Odrisamer Despaigne on the 40-man roster.

Andino will be recalled from Triple-A New Orleans, MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reports.

EDGE Analysis

Andino will serve as an extra bat in on the Miami roster following the placement of outfielder Giancarlo Stanton (groin) on the DL. He's seen most of his time in the minors this season at shortstop, but has also played at second base, left field and center field. If he gets into the lineup, he does provide modest power -- 13 home runs and a .746 OPS through 419 at-bats for the Zephyrs this season.

Mariners designated INF Robert Andino for assignment.

Andino gets the boot after batting just .184 (14-for-76) with a 27/7 K/BB ratio in 29 games. Carlos Triunfel has been promoted from Triple-A Tacoma to replace him on the active roster, but the move could set the wheels in motion for Brad Miller to eventually make his way to the majors.

Mariners designated INF Robert Andino for assignment.

The M's finally decided that they couldn't carry two no-hit middle infielder's, as Andino's .184/.253/.237 batting line is even worse than Brendan Ryan's. Andino is versatile, though, so it's possible he could drawn some interest on waivers.

Mariners manager Eric Wedge said Wednesday that Robert Andino has replaced Brendan Ryan as the team's regular shortstop.

Ryan is arguably the game's best defensive shortstop, but he's hitting .143 (8-for-56) this season and has a .530 OPS dating back to the start of last season. Of course, Andino owns a .233/.294/.321 batting line and a .615 OPS, so it's doubtful he'll be an upgrade. Still, he could be worth a flier in AL-only formats.

Mariners re-signed INF Robert Andino to a one-year contract.

Terms of the deal have not yet been disclosed. It was a surprising move to see him non-tendered, so this gives some clarity to the situation. He'll compete with Brendan Ryan for the Mariners' starting shortstop job.

Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik said new acquisition Robert Andino will be given a chance to compete for the starting job at shortstop.

Brendan Ryan is the best defensive shortstop in the game, but he hit just .194 with a .555 OPS this season. While Ryan is probably still the favorite for the gig, the M's aren't pigeon-holing Andino as utility guy. "Anybody you bring in, you don't put limitations on," Zduriencik said. "I talked to Robert and he said, 'I've been a shortstop my whole life. I played a lot of second base these last few years, but I'm a shortstop in my heart of hearts.' So I told him to work hard this offseason and then come in and compete for a position. Don't put any limitations on yourself and we won't put any on you. As far as I'm concerned, he's one of our players and will come in and compete for a position."
