Trayvon Robinson

Trayvon Robinson will replace Greg Halman on the Mariners roster, Ryan Divish of The News Tribune tweeted Thursday.

Divish cited two “well-placed and well-informed” sources in a later blog post.

The team optioned outfielder Greg Halman to Triple-A Tacoma on Thursday and said they would make an announcement Friday about his replacement.

Robinson, 23, was acquired from the Los Angeles Dodgers over the weekend in the Erik Bedard trade.

He was hitting .293 with 26 home runs and 71 RBIs for Triple-A Albuquerque. Robinson is a switch hitter who can play left and center field.

Divish points out that although he had 122 strikeouts in 368 at-bats for Albuquerque, “he’s not up there hacking uncontrollably like Carlos Pegeuro.”

He is expected to join the Mariners in his home town of Los Angeles.


I'm taking a flier on this guy even in the Seattle lineup! ;-D

Not if you're in a Yahoo league... not in the database yet. I really need an OF in my AL only league with Snider being sent down.

33% K rate in the PCL and he doesn't even have a simple way to cut it down, ie: stopping his uncontrollable swinging? And he plays for the Mariners? In Safeco? Pass.

Not sure what else anyone expected. How many players get promoted to the majors and suddenly start striking out less?
