(CBS Seattle) - The Seattle Mariners have bulked up their infield by acquiring Robert Andino from the Baltimore Orioles.

Seattle sent outfielder Trayvon Robinson to Baltimore in exchange for Andino.

The 28-year-old hit .211 with 41 runs, 13 doubles, 1 triple, 7 home runs and 28 RBI in 127 games during Baltimore’s 2012 campaign. Andino spent the majority of the season playing second base, but also filled in at third and shortstop. He played one game each in left field and center field as well.

“The addition of Robert Andino gives us some experienced infield depth with a player who has played multiple positions” said General Manager Jack Zduriencik in a press release. “With Robert having Major League and playoff experience and still relatively young, we thought that it made sense to make this trade and let him come in and compete.”

Robinson, who only played in 26 games last season, had been with the Mariners since the trade deadline in 2011 when he was shipped to Seattle in the Erik Bedard trade.
