Robinson (elbow) may be available for defense and pinch running purposes Thursday, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Robinson was hit by a pitch in Wednesday's game, causing him to leave early. While he may only be available for pinch running and defense Thursday, an arm contusion shouldn't keep him out for an extended period of time.

Robinson (elbow) is not in the lineup Thursday, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

Robinson exited Wednesday's game with a bruised elbow, and he'll remain out Thursday. The injury is not considered serious, however, so it's possible Robinson would have been held out of the lineup regardless. Continue to consider him day-to-day.

Robinson exited Wednesday's game early with a left elbow contusion, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

Robinson has hit a rough patch over the last couple days. He was scratched from Tuesday's lineup due to an illness, then got hit by a pitch that likely caused his leave from Wednesday's game. Fortunately, a contusion shouldn't keep him out long, though he doesn't receive starts on a consistent basis, so it may be tough to judge when he's healthy.

Robinson (illness) is in the lineup Wednesday against the Reds.

Robinson was scratched from Tuesday's lineup due to an illness, but it appears the issue was minor. He will start in left field and bat eighth for the Twins on Thursday, but will likely return to the bench when Torii Hunter rejoins the lineup after his day off.

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 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.
