Blue Jays Designate Clint Robinson For Assignment

The Blue Jays have designated first baseman Clint Robinson for assignment, according to a team press release. The team also confirmed last night's DFA of Ramon Ortiz.

In related moves, the team has placed Brett Lawrie on the DL with a sprained ankle, recalled right-hander Todd Redmond and selected the contracts of Juan Perez and Neil Wagner (which MLBTR's Tim Dierkes reported earlier today).

The 28-year-old Robinson was claimed off waivers at the end of March from the Pirates organization. Originally a 25th-round selection by the Royals in 2007, Robinson posted a .270/.381/.404 batting line in 47 games at Double-A New Hampshire this season. He is a .306/.382/.512 hitter in parts of seven Minor League seasons and received four plate appearances with the Royals last season.
