Robinson was scratched from Tuesday's starting lineup due to illness, LaVelle Neal of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

He was included in manager Paul Molitor's initial lineup, but it seems Robinson may have fallen under the weather at some point during Tuesday's two-hour rain delay. Danny Santana is now in center field with Eddie Rosario in left.

Robinson has been scratched from Tuesday's starting lineup, LaVelle Neal of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

The lineup change wasn't announced until just before the game got underway following two-hour rain delay. A reason for Robinson's scratch was not immediately provided, but consider him day-to-day until more information becomes available. Danny Santana is now playing center field with Eddie Rosario in left.

Robinson got the start in center field Saturday and batted ninth, going 2-for-4 with a double, two runs scored and an RBI.

It was a nice performance, but with the Byron Buxton era apparently about to begin in Minnesota, playing time could be very hard to come by for Robinson going forward.

Robinson was activated from the family emergency list Saturday, Fox Sports North's Tyler Mason reports.

His activation coincides with Jordan Schafer (knee) getting placed on the disabled list, so Robinson should share time with Aaron Hicks in center field going forward.

Robinson was placed on the family medical emergency/bereavement list Tuesday, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Robinson will be replaced on the 25-man roster by Aaron Hicks, who may get the chance to earn an everyday role. It's unclear how much time Robinson is expected to miss, but he only has 16 at-bats through the Twins' first 10 games in May.

Robinson started in center field and hit second in the batting order in Sunday's win over Seattle. He went 1-for-2 with a walk.

Robinson got the start in center field against a lefty starter as the platoon in center field has become more or a rule rather than a loose platoon like manager Paul Molitor suggested before the season. Robinson's move to No. 2 in the batting order could indicate he may take over more of the center field role with Jordan Schafter struggling at the plate (hitting .132).

Robinson is in Sunday's starting lineup at center field and hitting 9th against Cleveland.

Robinson will get a start against a lefty while Jordan Schafter sits. Manager Paul Molitor has said center field won't be a strict platoon, but Schafer's early struggles (hitting .143) could open more playing time for Robinson.

Robinson will get his first start of the season in right field and is hitting eighth in Saturday's game against the White Sox, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

It looks like Robinson will get starts in right field when Torii Hunter gets a day off. Robinson was also said to be in a quasi-platoon in center field, but Jordan Schafer has started every game so far in center field.

Robinson was added to Minnesota's 40-man roster and has made the 25-man roster.

He'll split center field duties with Jordan Schafer. Manager Paul Molitor has said it won't be a strict platoon with Schafer getting the majority of playing time, but it sounds like Robinson will get several starts a week.
