Robert Andino

  1. Robert Andino designated for assignment by the Mariners

    May 24, 2013, 3:00 PM EDT

    Erick Aybar, Robert Andino

    Not long ago the Mariners benched Brendan Ryan for Robert Andino. Not realizing, it seemed, that while neither of then could hit their way out of a wet paper bag, at least Ryan could flash some serious leather. Someone finally figured that out, however: Andino has been designated for assignment. Andino was hitting .184/.253/.237 in 85…

  2. Mariners shortstops are hitting worse than NL pitchers

    May 16, 2013, 12:16 PM EDT

    Brendan Ryan

    Our own D.J. Short passes along this amazing stat: Mariners shortstops have combined to hit .121 with a .318 OPS this season. National League pitchers have combined to hit .124 with a .323 OPS this season. So through one-fourth of the season Seattle’s shortstops have been out-hit by pitchers. Think about that. Brendan Ryan has…

  3. Mariners bench .143-hitting Brendan Ryan for .163-hitting Robert Andino

    Apr 24, 2013, 1:20 PM EDT

    brendan ryan getty

    Brendan Ryan is a great defensive shortstop, but he’s hitting .143 this season after hitting .194 last year and the Mariners have decided to bench him. Greg Johns of MLB.com reports that Robert Andino will take over as the starting shortstop, with Ryan shifting into a utility man role. Of course, Andino is hitting just…

  4. The Mariners think they’re getting better, but probably aren’t

    Jan 17, 2013, 1:18 AM EDT

    Jason Bay

    In Seattle GM Jack Zduriencik’s defense, he did aim high, pulling off a deal for Arizona’s Justin Upton that was negated by the right fielder’s no-trade clause. However, the moves that he’s actually completed this winter to aid the offense don’t bode particularly well for the Mariners’ 2013 hopes. – Traded OF Trayvon Robinson to…

  7. The Mariners trade Trayvon Robinson to the Orioles for Robert Andino

    Nov 20, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

    Robert Andino

    The Seattle Mariners have announced that they’ve acquired Robert Andino from Orioles for Trayvon Robinson. 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…

    CC Sabathia dominated the Orioles over the first seven innings tonight, but the Orioles had their chance in the top of the eighth. They failed to deliver the knockout punch. Matt Wieters led off the eighth with a single and Manny Machado drew a walk before Mark Reynolds struck out swinging for the first out…

    Ichiro Suzuki

    They’ll call it “The Ichiro Shuffle.” The Yankees struck first tonight in Game 2 of the ALDS against the Orioles.

Manny Machado came up big again, delivering a game-winning single after starting the day 0-for-5. It looked like the Orioles would win it in the 13th, but Chris Archer, making his first…

    The Yankees are all alone again in first place in the American League East. At least for now. After giving up six home runs on Thursday to fall back into a tie for the division lead, the Yankees topped the Orioles 8-5 last night at Camden Yards. The Yankees hit three home runs in the…

    Mark Reynolds, Ichiro Suzuki

    There’s once again a tie atop the AL East standings. The Orioles used six homers, including two more from Mark Reynolds, to ward off a big eighth-inning comeback and beat the Yankees 10-6 on Thursday. The Bombers scored five times in the top of the eighth without the benefit of a homer to even the…

  20. Orioles place Jim Thome on DL, activate Robert Andino

    Jul 31, 2012, 5:17 PM EDT

    Jim Thome Getty

    Jim Thome hit reasonably well since jumping into the middle of the Orioles’ lineup a month ago, hitting .261 with two homers and a .746 OPS in 18 games, but now the 41-year-old is on the disabled list with a herniated disk in his neck. Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com reports that Thome “will fly to…

  21. Cliff Pennington lands on disabled list with sprained bat

    Jul 20, 2012, 6:22 PM EDT

    Cliff Pennington

    Well, technically it’s with a sore elbow, but no one is buying that excuse. The A’s placed Cliff Pennigton on the disabled list after his latest 0-for Thursday. He had gone hitless in four straight games, taking his average down to .197 for the season. That comes with just 17 extra-base hits, 16 RBI and…

  22. Robert Andino joins Brian Roberts on the disabled list

    Jul 17, 2012, 3:15 PM EDT

    Robert Andino

    Baltimore is already without Brian Roberts and the man who’s filled in for him at second base for most of the past two seasons, Robert Andino, has now joined him on the disabled list. Andino strained his left shoulder diving for a ball Sunday. Or as manager Buck Showalter put it: “He’s got some fibers…

    Poor Brian Roberts.

Roberts strained his groin Sunday, sat out Monday’s game, and was put on the shelf yesterday after playing…

    Chicago Cubs v Atlanta Braves

    Braves 10, Cubs 3: Chipper Jones was named to the All-Star team and then went out and put up a 5-for-5, 4 RBI night. Dude even stole a base. Which is nuts considering he was rejected from the leg transplant list as an unsuitable recipient at least five years ago. Of course I talk about…
