The Dodgers have designated Clint Robinson for assignment, manager Don Mattingly tells reporters, including Ken Gurnick of MLB.com (Twitter link). The move makes room for the activation of Carl Crawford from the 15-day disabled list.
The 29-year-old Robinson collected his first three Major League hits and his first two big league RBIs in his brief time with the Dodgers. The first baseman appeared in nine games and collected 10 plate appearances in the Majors, and he’s had an outstanding season in the minor leagues to date as well. Robinson has batted .309/.402/.523 with 14 homers in 333 plate appearances this season in Triple-A. He’s no stranger to success at that level, as the former 25th-round pick (Royals) has an excellent line of .302/.392/.488 in 377 Triple-A contests.
