A little Canadian baseball news …

In lieu of Jays news on this off day, let’s instead turn our focus to some Canadian baseball. That is, a Canadian who’s playing the game in the minors right now.

Chris Robinson, from Dorchester, ON, is in his third full season in the Cubs’ organization, and his first at the Triple-A level. After an up and down season in 2008, Robinson has put it all together so far in ’09. He earned a spot on the Pacific Coast League all-star team and is currently hitting .325 in 71 games at Triple-A Iowa.

Still, when Cubs catcher Geovany Soto went on the DL in early July, Robinson did not get the call up to the big leagues. But if the 25-year-old Robinson is frustrated, he’s not showing it. Instead, he’s simply continuing to make a case in the minors that he deserves a shot in “The Show.”
