Robinson's contract was purchased from Triple-A Salt Lake ahead of Sunday's game against the Rangers, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

It's not yet known what roster move the Angels will make to create a spot for Robinson, but the 31-year-old is in line to start in left field and bat eighth Sunday, according to Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Robinson, who was batting .306 with three stolen bases over 16 games at Triple-A, could push Rafael Ortega for playing time in left field while Daniel Nava (knee) and Craig Gentry (back) remain sidelined by injuries.

Robinson signed a minor league contract with the Angels on Thursday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Robinson was released by the Indians earlier this week, and it appears the Angels were intrigued by his strong spring showing at the plate. He'll join the team in their bout with the Dodgers tonight, although there's a decent chance that he'll start the season in the minors. Robinson could find his way to Anaheim fairly soon if an injury strikes, though, as the Angels are fairly thin in the outfield.

Robinson is expected to sign a minor-league contract with the Indians, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The Indians are in need of outfield help after Michael Brantley underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder two weeks ago, so Robinson could provide some depth in case Brantley's rehab extends into the beginning of the regular season. His poor .237/.302/.313 career slash line likely indicate the 31-year-old won't provide much fantasy production, but he will likely have an opportunity to make the Opening Day roster if he plays well during spring training.

Robinson will elect to become a free agent, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Robinson was outrighted from the 40-man roster Wednesday and had the option to accept free agency if he so chose. Robinson served as a utility outfielder throughout much of the season for the Twins, so there might be at least a little bit of interest on the market for the 30-year-old. He will likely be on some team's spring training roster come 2016.

Robinson was outrighted from the 40-man roster, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Robinson recorded 180 at-bats with the Twins this season, but just nine of those came in the months of September and October as Minnesota seemed to shy away from the 30-year-old towards the end of the season. The career .237 hitter will now have the option to become a free agent or choose to accept his assignment to Triple-A Rochester.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Robinson left the team Thursday to be with his family back in Boston while tending to a personal issue. He was expected to be back with the Twins on Monday, but the team is yet to provide an update on his status. Given his standing as a non-everyday player, it's possible Robinson is back with the team but is simply not a part of the lineup.

Robinson (personal) left the Twins on Thursday and hopes to rejoin the team Monday, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Robinson has missed time for personal reasons on three separate occasions this season, but his latest departure from the team isn't expected to be a long one. With the expanded rosters here in September, the Twins have been able to cover for Robinson's absence without much issue.
