Robert D. "Robbie" Weinhardt (born December 8, 1985) is a professional baseball relief pitcher, who is currently a free agent. He went to college at Oklahoma State.

Detroit Tigers[edit]

He was called up to the majors for the first time on July 7, 2010.[1] Weinhardt pitched an inning, giving up one run in his first career outing against the Baltimore Orioles. On July 9, 2010, he entered the game for Justin Verlander with the bases loaded, and induced a double play to get out of the inning. The next inning he got his first career strikeouts, finishing the day with 123 innings pitched and two strikeouts. On July 30, he earned his first career win against the Boston Red Sox.

On May 24, 2011, Weinhardt was designated for assignment.[2]

Weinhardt ultimately remained in the Tigers organization, finishing the 2011 season with the Triple-A Toledo Mud Hens. Weinhardt began the 2012 season with the Double-A Erie SeaWolves.

He became a free agent from the Sugar Land Skeeters after the 2016 season.
