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.”
Thanks to Eddie.
