From Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish comes word that the Cardinals have cut ties with outfielder Shane Robinson, a fifth-round pick from the 2006 draft who has appeared in a total of 268 major league games.
Robinson set records at Florida State University and has produced promising numbers at the upper levels of the minor leagues, but the 30-year-old batted just .150/.227/.200 across 66 plate appearances this past season for St. Louis and he is a weak .231/.303/.308 career hitter in parts of five big league campaigns.
Monday’s acquisition of Jason Heyward made Robinson all the more expendable.
He’s a pretty good defender and should be able to find a new organization quickly.
