He has competed at three editions of the Baseball World Cup, helping Canada win bronze in 2009 and 2011. He made his Olympic debut at Beijing 2008 and went on to be part of the Canadian team that captured gold at the 2011 Pan Am Games in Guadalajara where he hit .278 in four games as a catcher and designated hitter. He has also competed at two editions of the World Baseball Classic. Robinson was selected in the third round of the 2005 MLB Draft by the Detroit Tigers. He was traded to the Chicago Cubs a year later and after a four-year stint with their minor league affiliates he joined the Baltimore Orioles and, later, the San Diego Padres, with whom he made his major league debut in 2013.
