Shane Robinson RF MIN 10 Days

Robinson went 1-for-3 in Tuesday's win over Baltimore to raise his batting average to .368 this spring (5-for-17). He has a clause that let's him opt out of his contract if he's not on the 25-man roster by April 2, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Robinson is having a strong spring so far, but still seems like a long shot to win a roster spot. It's possible he could be the primary reserve outfielder if Aaron Hicks is sent to the minors and there's a small chance he could factor in a platoon in center field if he stays hot.

Robinson (shoulder) was released by the Cardinals on Tuesday.

The acquisition of Jason Heyward from Atlanta gave the Cardinals a surplus of outfielders, and Robinson was ultimately deemed the weak link. A fifth-round pick in 2006, he has hit just .231/.303/.308 in parts of five seasons in the majors and was forced to undergo shoulder surgery late in the year. Robinson doesn't have much power or speed to speak of and will likely have to settle for a minor league deal once healthy.

Robinson was diagnosed with a subluxation of his left shoulder after leaving Monday's game, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

The outfielder is likely headed back to St. Louis for further evaluation, and quite possibly, a placement on the disabled list. As the team's fifth outfielder, Robinson typically only sees the occasional pinch-hitting opportunity and shouldn't be overly difficult for the Cardinals to replace.
