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

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.

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.

Robinson (personal) remains out of the lineup Tuesday, Brandon Warne of Cold Omaha reports.

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.

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.

Robinson suffered an elbow contusion Wednesday, limiting him to a bench role in Thursday's game against the Royals, although it's not as if he's been getting many starts when healthy. He now figures to miss the next few games because of an unrelated family matter.
