Robinson cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Salt Lake on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Robinson was designated for assignment, and his relative lack of success in the big leagues over the past few years left other teams disinterested in his services while he was exposed to waivers. He'll return to Triple-A to continue to act as organizational depth.

Robinson was Friday prior to the game against Houston.

EDGE Analysis

In a corresponding move, the team activated Cameron Maybin (oblique) from the disabled list and moved Robinson in order to clear a spot. Moving forward, Robinson will provide organizational outfield depth if he accepts the assignment.

Robinson's contract was purchased from Triple-A Salt Lake on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Robinson was hitting .289 in the minors prior to his callup, and given his vast major-league experience, he was a reasonable choice for the Angels to bring up with Mike Trout (thumb) and Cameron Maybin (side) on the shelf. Robinson is starting in center field for Wednesday's contest, and he could pick up a good number of innings until Maybin is back in action, after which he's likely move into a fourth outfielder role.

Robinson was reassigned to the Angels' minor-league camp Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Robinson held down a reserve role in the outfield for the Angels for a good chunk of 2016, but delivered a lowly .257 on-base percentage in 111 plate appearances. With the team adding Ben Revere on a one-year deal in the offseason, Robinson never had a great chance of winning an Opening Day gig with the Angels, so he'll be forced to bide his time at Triple-A Salt Lake and wait for an injury to open up an opportunity.

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.

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.
