Mariners acquire infielder Robert Andino from Baltimore Orioles

|

SEATTLE, Wash. -- Seattle Mariners Executive Vice President & General Manager of Baseball Operations Jack Zduriencik announced today that the team has acquired infielder Robert Andino from the Baltimore Orioles in exchange for outfielder Trayvon Robinson.
 
Andino, 28, hit .211 (81x384) with 41 runs, 13 doubles, 1 triple, 7 home runs and 28 RBI in 127 games for Baltimore in 2012. He appeared games at second base (108 G/96 GS), third base 15 G/9 GS, shortstop (2 G/GS) and one game each in left field and center field.
 
In parts of eight Major League seasons with Florida (2005-08) and Baltimore (2009-12), Andino is a career .235 (292x1244) hitter with 152 runs, 52 doubles, 1 triple, 18 home runs, 92 RBI in 439 games. The Miami, FL native was originally selected by the Florida Marlins in the second round of the 2002 amateur draft.
 
“The addition of Robert Andino gives us some experienced infield depth with a player who has played multiple positions” said Zduriencik. “With Robert having Major League and playoff experience and still relatively young, we thought that it made sense to make this trade and let him come in and compete.”
 
Robinson, 25, appeared in 46 games, making 39 starts (all in left field) for Seattle, hitting .221 (32x145) with 16 runs, 4 doubles, 1 triple, 3 home runs, 12 RBI with 6 steals while appearing in 46 of the Mariners final 60 games of the season (starting July 28). With AAA Tacoma he hit .265 (90x340) with 50 runs, 18 doubles, 2 triples, 9 home runs, 41 RBI, .740 OPS in 83 games. Robinson was acquired by Seattle from the Boston Red Sox (with Chih-Hsien Chiang) in exchange for LHP Erik Bedard and RHP Josh Fields on July 31, 2011. He was originally drafted by the Dodgers in the 10th round of the 2005 amateur draft.
 
"We thank Trayvon for his contributions and wish him the best of luck with the Baltimore Orioles,” added Zduriencik.
 
With this trade the Mariners 40-man roster remains at 37 players.
