Rays' Daniel Robertson: Gets demoted
The Rays optioned Robertson to their taxi squad Sunday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.Robertson's latest stint with the big club lasted one day, as he'll return to the Rays' taxi squad with the team activating reserve catcher Kevan Smith (illness) from the COVID-19 injured list. The Rays appear to view the lefty-hitting Joey Wendle and the righty-hitting Mike Brosseau as their top utility infielders at this time, leaving no room on the active roster for Robertson.
Rays' Daniel Robertson: Recalled by Rays
Robertson was recalled by the Rays on Saturday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.Robertson was on the two-man taxi squad for the Rays' current road trip, and he'll join the 30-man roster after Kevan Smith was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Saturday. The utility man should serve as depth for the major-league club until Smith is ready to return. Robertson appeared in 74 major-league games with the Rays last year and had a .607 OPS with 12 extra-base hits, 19 RBI and 24 walks.
Rays' Daniel Robertson: Dropped from Opening Day roster
The Rays optioned Robertson to their alternate training site Thursday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.Tampa Bay opted to keep Mike Brosseau as a seventh infielder on the 30-man Opening Day roster over Robertson. Given his ample big-league experience (237 career games) and ability to play all over the diamond and in the outfield, Robertson should rank high on the list for a callup if the Rays need an extra reserve bat at any point in the 60-game season.
