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.

Career[edit]

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]
