Robert Andino is still on the team?

It caught me by surprise on Saturday when Robert Andino actually played in a game.  Yes, you are reading this right, Robert Andino got to play.

Robert Andino made his outfield debut Saturday when he replaced injured CF Alfredo Amezaga. Andino, who played his first 105 career games in the infield, made two putouts, including one in his first inning in center.

"I knew it was coming," he joked about his early action. "The ball always finds you."

I understand the importance of having a middle infielder backup, especially now that Amezaga is hurt.  But I have said it before, about a hundred times, and I will say it again, he is wasting away on the bench.
