With Juan Uribe close to coming off the disabled list, Jamie Romak’s immediate Dodger future has been in jeopardy. Today, the infielder/outfielder, who had a double and two walks in 23 plate appearances, was designated for assignment.
But the one replacing Romak on the active roster might come as a surprise. It’s first baseman Clint Robinson, who will be suiting up today for the Dodgers against the Kansas City Royals, the team that selected him 25 rounds into the 2007 draft.
If he plays, Robinson would be the 40th Dodger to enter a game this year. With the Royals in 2012, Robinson had four pinch-hitting appearances — flying out, grounding out and striking out twice.
