Rays Sign Third Baseman; Played First Three Seasons With Tampa Bay


The Tampa Bay Rays have signed third baseman Daniel Robertson to a minor-league contract with an invite to spring training.

Robertson spent the entire 2022 season at the Triple-A level with the Milwaukee Brewers and the Philadelphia Phillies, slashing .219/.319/.395, with eight home runs, 35 RBIs and 39 runs scored over 67 games played.

The twenty-eight played his first three seasons with the Rays, totaling 236 games.

For his major-league career, Robertson holds a .227/.338/.345 triple-slash line, with 18 home runs, 78 RBIs, five stolen bases and 105 runs scored over 299 games. 

He brings plenty of defensive versatility with him, but his lack of offensive upside hurts his chances of making the Rays' season-opening roster.

Robertson is a former first-round pick by the Oakland Athletics in the 2012 MLB Draft.
