The Dodgers signed a familiar name to a minor league contract as Trayvon Robinson will reportedly return to the organization that drafted him and then traded him away.Nothing is official, but Matt Eddy of Baseball America reported Friday Robinson is back in the fold as he attempts to work his way onto a major league roster once again after flaming out in Seattle. Robinson, who won...
This picture is from 2007. Robinson hit .253/.314/.311 in Single-A. Maybe we should have seen this coming. (via)
Matt Eddy from Baseball America is your go-to source for minor-league signings and movement, especially if you’re interested in a bunch of guys you’ve never heard of, but today he hit us with a real blast from the past:

BOWIE – The Akron Aeros dropped the finale of a seven-game road trip with a 3-2 loss to the Bowie Baysox on Wednesday morning.
Toru Murata (4-5, 3.78) dealt five scoreless innings for the Aeros before the Baysox finally ignited some offense.
Meanwhile, the Aeros scored immediately on Bowie starter Tyler Wilson (5-1, 2.42). Shortstop Francisco Lindor led off the game with...

Despite surprising everyone by winning 93 games and qualifying for the postseason last year, the Orioles haven’t done much of anything this winter. Other than re-signing Nate McLouth, all of their moves have been small trades (Danny Valencia, Trayvon Robinson, Yamaico Navarro), minor league signings (Daniel Schlereth, Zach Braddock, Travis Ishikawa), or waiver claims (Luis Martinez...
Baseball’s winter meetings are here, a time where there is a lot of trades and free agent movement. Mariners’ fans are hoping one of the big players this week will be the Seattle Mariners. Having been passed by the Rangers, Angels, and A’s in the A.L. West, the team needs to improve their roster to catch back up. Even though Seattle’s record improved this season to...
Set the bar low
There are a few things in life that I feel deserve low expectations: Action movies that come out in January, Middle East peace talks and Robert Andino.
Looking over the stats it is not difficult to anticipate a batting average in the low two hundreds and subpar defense for the Mariners in 2013.
Anything above that is a bonus.
However if you are feeling that...
"Given Robert Andino's down 2012, I suggested the Orioles might want to look elsewhere for a starting second baseman for 2013 if they wanted to be competitive again. When the O's picked up Alexi Casilla, the writing was kind of on the wall Andino wasn't going to be getting a starting job with the team next season. And now, as it turns it, he won't be getting...
Evening everyone. I’ve not been hearing much on the market concerning the Orioles and free agency as of yet, despite murmurs of them being interested in a number of players.
However, today, the Orioles made a trade. It saddened me as a fan to read the details a while ago, but the deal they made was prudent and hard to argue with.
From the Baltimore Orioles: The Orioles...
Big bats needed
It’s the time of year for every Mariners fan to become the fantasy GM for their favorite team.
I know that this is something I do every year, and my ideas never even come close to whomever is sitting in that position at the time.
This year my thoughts may be a little on the outside of most Mariners fans, but at the same time, I honestly believe this is whats best...
M’s land versatile infielder
Looking to build some infield depth, the Seattle Mariners have acquired Robert Andino from the Baltimore Orioles for outfielder Trayvon Robinson.
With a surplus of outfielders, and a lack of depth in the middle infield, this is a trade purely for depths sake. In his career, Andino has played second, third, shortstop, left and centerfield.
The Seattle Mariners announced that they have sent outfielder Trayvon Robinson to the Baltimore Orioles in exchange of infielder Robert Andino. Robinson was a highly coveted prospect in the Dodgers organization that ended up in Seattle in a three-team trade that sent Erik Bedard to Boston.
The 25-year old outfielder hit .221/.294/.324 with 3 HR's, 12 RBI's and a .275 wOBA...
Looking to add depth to the infield, the Seattle Mariners acquired versatile Robert Andino from the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday in exchange for reserve outfielder Trayvon Robinson.
The trade instantly gives the Mariners an experienced infielder who can play second base, third base and shortstop. Andino is likely to fill the role held this past season by Japanese infielder Munenori...

Red Sox fans can breathe a sigh of relief as Robert Andino, the Orioles' version of Aaron Boone, has been dealt to Seattle for Trayvon Robinson.
If you can't remember Andino's significance:

Worth mentioning: Andino isn't actually a Red Sox killer -- he has a .620 OPS against the team and shouldn't have even had that...
The Fences Are Coming In!
The question is: With young outfielders everywhere, what should the Seattle Mariners do this offseason to solidify 7, 8 & 9?
The heart of the matter in Seattle is that the Mariners need more production from their bats. With the strength of Jack Zduriencik’s draft classes in the infield, mainly 2B Dustin Ackley, 3B Kyle Seager, and eventually SS Nick...
Seager saves run
Mariners third basemen Kyle Seager goes to his knees in another defensive gem for you this week.
The Mariners tried their hardest to get the sweep in front of their home fans against the division leading Texas Rangers, but just came up a bit short.
It’s all good though, as each win we accumulate is just gravy, knowing that we are indeed getting better as a...

With the Dodgers arriving in Seattle for a weekend series, The Seattle Times conducted an online chat for fans with former Dodger minor leaguer, and current AAA center fielder for the Tacoma Rainiers, Trayvon Robinson.
There are a few questions about the Dodgers that will be of interest for readers of this blog (for one, Trayvon considers the Dodgers more strict as an organization...
Seven more moved to the minors
Not that it wasn’t expected to happen, after all, this is a part of MLB baseball that young players have gotten used to on their journey to the big leagues.
On Saturday, the Seattle Mariners reduced their spring training roster by seven players, and two of the players cut were a surprise to this guy. The cutting of pitcher Aaron Heilman, and outfielder...
For these prospects, it will be another year till they get their shot
On Sunday, the Seattle Mariners made the first of many moves to trim their roster to the mandatory 25 men for their opening day trip to Japan. The number of players left in camp now is 47, after 15 were sent to the minor league part of the Peoria Sports Complex.
Among the players cut were top draft pick Danny...
