Drew Robinson is officially back in professional baseball.

The San Francisco Giants' Triple-A affiliate, the Sacramento River Cats, announced on Wednesday their Opening Day roster, and Robinson's name was among those included.

"I'm officially a one-eyed baseball player," Robinson said on Twitter when the news broke. "I'm lucky enough to say I've made the Giants Triple-A roster ... And the fact that we open our season in my hometown of Las Vegas just really can't get anymore full circle. For real though, my first games back, after everything that's happened, are at home in front of all the people that got me through my incident and this last year as a whole? It feels like I'm living out a movie."

Robinson lost his right eye during a suicide attempt in April 2020.

The 29-year-old has appeared in 100 career games at the major-league level, primarily with the Texas Rangers in 2017 and 2018. He also had a brief five-game stint with the St. Louis Cardinals in 2019 before being released and later signing a minor-league deal with the Giants.
