Twins' Molitor likes what he has in OF Shane Robinson


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com

Robinson is currently tied for the team-lead in doubles this spring with four. He has been batting second and playing center. 

Molitor also points out that Robinson has been better against left-handed pitchers as opposed to right-handers.

"I think he takes good at-bats against right-handers," Molitor said, "but obviously the left-hand thing is probably a little better thing for him."

They have reason and motivation to play as well as they can. We don't have to make a decision yet. We've got a little time."
