Robinson signed a minor league contract with the Angels on Tuesday, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

Robinson was DFA'd earlier in November, but the Angels saw enough in his defensive versatility to bring him back into the organization. That being said, the 32-year-old will likely act as organizational depth until his bat translates to the major league level.

Robinson elected free agency on Wednesday instead of accepting an outright assignment to Triple-A Salt Lake.

EDGE Analysis

He received more playing time last season than his talents might warrant, but the Angels have already upgraded the outfield situation with the addition of Cameron Maybin, and more offensive upgrades could be forthcoming via free agency. Robinson could sign elsewhere on a minor league deal as a non-roster invitee to spring training.

Robinson was designated for assignment on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

The Angels needed to clear a spot for Andrew Bailey on the 40-man roster, and Robinson was the casualty. He will provide organizational outfield depth going forward.

Robinson (hip) was activated from the 15-day DL on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Despite coming off the DL, Robinson is not in Tuesday's lineup against the A's. He would struggle to remain on the active roster in most organizations, but given the Angels' complete lack of quality options in left field, Robinson figures to get his share of at-bats over the final month. Robinson hit .181/.277/.241 with one home run and two steals in 96 plate appearances before landing on the DL.

Robinson was placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday with a right hip strain.

EDGE Analysis

Robinson's frustrating season hit another bump in the road Saturday as he's destined for the DL for the second time in the last two months. The Angels selected outfielder Nick Buss' contract to take Robinson's spot on the active roster.

Robinson (ankle) was activated off the disabled list Saturday and he will bat ninth in the order against the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Robinson will take over in right field for Kole Calhoun, who is getting the day off Saturday. He had been on the disabled list since July 6 due to an ankle sprain, but he only needed a pair of rehab games to show the Angels that he was ready to get back to the majors. The Angels designated Daniel Nava for assignment to clear a roster spot for Robinson.

Robinson (ankle) is expected to begin a rehab assignment Thursday at High-A Inland Empire.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran outfielder is taking a big step forward in his recovery from a sprained ankle by getting back into game action Thursday. Robinson has been sidelined for nearly a month, but he should only need a handful of rehab games if his ankle is able to hold up to the added strain. Once he returns, he'll add depth to the Angels' left field platoon.

Robinson (ankle) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Robinson suffered a sprained ankle in Tuesday's game against the Rays and after giving him a day to test out the injury, the Angels opted to place him on the DL. The Angels selected the contract of Todd Cunningham to take his spot on the active roster. Robinson was slashing .212/.325/.273 before landing on the DL.

Robinson (ankle) is out of Wednesday's lineup, the Orange County Register's Jeff Fletcher reports.

EDGE Analysis

This was all but a certainty after he left Tuesday's game with a sprained ankle. It would not be surprising to see him land on the DL prior to the All-Star break along with Daniel Nava (knee), who is also ailing. Jefry Marte is starting in left field for the Angels on Wednesday, and should occupy that position on a semi-regular basis while Robinson and Nava are sidelined.

Robinson suffered a sprained ankle in Tuesday's game against the Rays, Pedro Moura of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Angels are unsure yet if Robinson will require a stint on the DL, but they will nevertheless likely recall an outfielder from Triple-A on Wednesday, as Daniel Nava (patellar tendinitis) is also ailing. Robinson hasn't hit for average (.210) or offered any power (.258 SLG) or done much on the bases (two steals), so he can be left alone in most formats.
