Trayvon Robinson Called Up To Join Seattle Mariners

Once Greg Halman was sent down to AAA, it was only a matter of time before the Seattle Mariners called someone up. Ryan Divish of the Tacoma News Tribune broke the news: It appears the Mariners are pinning their hopes on former Dodgers prospect Trayvon Robinson, who was sent to the Mariners in the Erik Bedard trade.

The outfielder is a solid enough prospect. He was drafted in the 2005 MLB draft out of Crenshaw High School, and spent most of the next four years playing minor league baseball. He finally had a breakout year in 2011 with the Albuquerque Isotopes. While he struck out a lot in triple-A but did show a lot of power with 26 HRs in 2011 and 9 triples (and a low amount of doubles). Seattle could use some hitting, and Robinson could be a player of the future for the beleagured franchise.
