After being acquired from the Dodgers in 2011, Robinson, an outfielder, has had 319 big league plate appearances over the past two seasons, and he just hasn’t hit. His line: .221/.294/.324. He hit pretty darn well in the minors, but a lot of that was a function of the Pacific Coast League, one figures. A move out of Safeco Field and just a basic change of scenery will hopefully help him.
Andino has been in the majors for parts of eight increasingly unhappy seasons. He has served as a utility guy, and his bat makes it pretty certain he’ll remain a utility guy and not move on to greater things. That the Orioles are trading him so they can make room for Alexi Casilla tells you, however, that they’re no longer all that high on the lad, who will be 29 come April.
