Wedge impressed with well-rounded Robinson
SEATTLE -- Trayvon Robinson has had two stints with the Mariners over the past two years, not including the time he spent with the big league club during Spring Training, but manager Eric Wedge believes the outfielder is as impressive now as he's ever seen him.

"I tell you, this guy did a great job going to Triple-A and working, because he came back a better baseball player," Wedge said on Sunday. "He's seeing pitches better at home plate, his swing is more together, he's not as long, he's shorter, seeing the baseball better, he's more confident on the basepaths, I like his athleticism.

"He's more of a raw type of athlete in regard to baseball. I thought he was a little shaky in the outfield when he got here. He's really worked hard to be better out there."

Robinson has made several jaw-dropping catches in left field, including one in which he went over the wall to bring back a foul ball. His impact at the plate has been noticeable, as well. Hitting .245 overall, Robinson entered Sunday with five hits in his last 18 at-bats with a home run.
