Pirates make deals for options at P, 1B (Clint Robinson, Dothan Al ) - Pittsburgh Post-Gazette/Bill Brink - Clint Robinson, 27, was drafted by the Royals in 2007 and made his major league debut this past season. After hitting 23 home runs for Class AAA Omaha in '11, he batted .292 with 13 home runs and a .393 on-base percentage this past season. - "We've seen a guy whose bat and his power and command of the zone intrigues us," Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said. "Just a guy that hasn't had much opportunity because he's had a very good player [Eric Hosmer] in front of him." Robinson joins Garrett Jones and Gaby Sanchez, who are both eligible for arbitration and must be tendered contracts by midnight Friday, as first-base options.
