Refsnyder was traded from the Diamondbacks to the Reds on Sunday for a player to be named later or cash. Refsnyder signed a minor-league deal with Arizona in November and went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in his lone appearance with Triple-A Reno. The 28-year-old slashed .167/.314/.274 in 40 games with the Rays last season and will report to Triple-A Louisville.
Refsnyder was assigned to minor-league camp Friday. Refsnyder was invited to big-league camp when he signed his minor-league deal back in November, though he was never particularly likely to break camp with the team. His career .218/.308/.302 slash line in 166 games makes him best suited for an organizational depth role.
Refsnyder agreed Wednesday with the Diamondbacks on a one-year, minor-league contract. Refsnyder's contract includes an invitation to major-league spring training, though it's most likely that he reports to Triple-A Reno to begin the 2019 campaign. The 27-year-old owns a middling .218/.308/.302 line over 423 career plate appearances in the big leagues but makes up for it to some degree with the ability to play both corner-outfield spots and three infield positions.
Refsnyder cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Durham on Friday. Refsnyder was designated for assignment Monday and will join the Bulls after going unclaimed on waivers. The 27-year-old had a .167/.314/.274 line with two home runs in 100 plate appearances with the Rays this season.
Refsnyder was designated for assignment Monday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Assuming he goes unclaimed off waivers, Refsynder will head to Triple-A Durham after struggling to a .167 batting average with two homers and five RBI through 40 games in the big leagues this season. The transaction will free up room on the 40-man roster for Kevin Kiermaier (thumb), who will be activated from the 60-day disabled list Tuesday.
