Robinson was outrighted to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Robinson was removed from the 40-man roster after the Yankees traded for Andrew McCutchen on Friday. Unsurprisingly, a 33-year-old who's topped the Mendoza line just once since 2013 didn't make for an appealing waiver claim, so he'll head back to the minors.

Robinson was designated for assignment by the Yankees on Saturday, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic New York reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Yankees deemed Robinson expendable following the acquisition of Andrew McCutchen, casting him off their 40-man roster in order to free up a spot for Stephen Tarpley, whose contract was selected from Triple-A in a corresponding roster move. The 33-year-old hit just .143/.208/.224 across 25 games with the Yankees this season. He'll likely report to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre if he passes through waivers untouched.

Robinson was called up from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre prior to Thursday's game against Kansas City, Brendan Kuty of NJ.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Robinson's stay in the big leagues is likely going to be a brief one until the recently acquired J.A. Happ arrives from Toronto. That said, this move placed Robinson on the 40-man roster for the first time since he was DFA'd by the Yankees in April. Across 48 games with the RailRiders this year, he's hit .253 with a .614 OPS.

Robinson was outrighted to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Robinson was designated for assignment by the Yankees last Thursday, as the team has plenty of outfield depth even with Jacoby Ellsbury (oblique) and Clint Frazier (concussion) currently residing on the DL. After clearing waivers, Robinson will now serve as organizational depth in the minors, as opposed to electing free agency.

Robinson was designated for assignment Thursday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

EDGE Analysis

Robinson came up from the minors Tuesday, but he'll be removed from the roster in order to allow Aaron Hicks to return from the disabled list. The 33-year-old went 1-for-3 with a walk in his lone start for New York, though he also added another walk and a stolen base off the bench in Wednesday's contest. He'll likely continue being an organizational depth piece if he clears waivers.

Robinson had has contract purchased from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday. He is starting in center field and hitting ninth against the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Robinson will take the roster spot of Jace Peterson, who was designated for assignment in a corresponding move. The 33-year-old should serve as a right-handed hitting outfield option as the Yankees face a pair of difficult lefties (Chris Sale and David Price) over the next two games. Robinson likely won't stick with the Yankees for long, however, as Aaron Hicks (ribs) is nearing a return from the disabled list and would presumably take his roster spot once activated.

Robinson signed a minor-league contract with the Yankees on Wednesday which includes an invitation to spring training, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

EDGE Analysis

Robinson spent most of the 2017 season with Triple-A Salt Lake, hitting a respectable .318/.370/.425 with 15 stolen bases across 86 games. He also appeared in 20 games for the Angels, though his success failed to translate as he hit just .194/.257/.194 in 35 plate appearances for the big club. Given the amount of quality outfield options the Yankees already have on their 40-man roster, Robinson should spend the year in the minors as organizational depth.

Robinson elected free agency Friday, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

Robinson took part in just 20 games with the Angles during the 2017 campaign. With 35 plate appearances, he batted .194 with six hits and an RBI. The 33-year-old will look to latch on elsewhere as a depth option in the outfield prior to next season, though he's unlikely to become a significant fantasy contributor.

Robinson was promoted by the Angels on Friday, Pedro Moura of The Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Robinson has appeared in 14 games with the Angels this season, going 5-for-25 (.200 average) with one RBI and six runs during his brief time in the majors. After being DFA'd by the club in early August, he's slashed .256/.276/.390 with Triple-A Salt Lake since. Moving forward, he will serve as added depth in the outfield, but doesn't figure to provide any substantial fantasy impact throughout the rest of the year.

EDGE Analysis
