Daniel Roger Robertson (born September 30, 1985) is an American professional baseball outfielder who is currently a free agent. He previously played for the Texas Rangers, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Seattle Mariners, and Cleveland Indians.


Robertson was drafted by the San Diego Padres in the 33rd round of the 2008 Major League Baseball Draft out of Oregon State University.[1]

On April 23, 2014, Robertson was acquired by the Texas Rangers through a trade with the Padres, and called up to the majors the same day.[2]

Robertson was traded to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim for a player to be named later on November 20, 2014.[3]

Robertson was claimed off waivers by the Seattle Mariners on November 6, 2015 and designated for assignment by them on December 18.

On November 23, 2016, Robertson signed a minor league contract with the Cleveland Indians that included an invitation to spring training.[4] After beginning the 2017 season with the Triple-A Columbus Clippers, Robertson's contract was purchased by the Indians on May 14.[5] He was designated for assignment on August 10, 2017, to make room for Jay Bruce on the 40-man roster [6] and was released the same day after clearing waivers. The Indians re-signed Robertson to a minor league contract on August 15, 2017. He was released on August 28, 2017. [7]
