  • Red Sox's Rob Refsnyder: Signs minors deal with Boston

    Refsnyder (elbow) signed a minor-league contract with the Red Sox on Tuesday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Refsnyder has played parts of six seasons in the majors and has yet to show he's anything more than a bench player. His 86 wRC+ last season, the product of a .245/.325/.338 slash line, is unimpressive but nonetheless represents his highest mark since his 16-game debut in 2015.

  • Twins' Rob Refsnyder: Outrighted by Minnesota

    Refsnyder (elbow) was outrighted off the Twins' 40-man roster Friday.

    Refsnyder appeared in 51 games for the Twins in 2021 and hit .245/.325/.338 with two homers, 12 RBI and 21 runs. He finished the season on the injured list with a right elbow impingement and also missed nearly two months earlier in the year with a hamstring strain.

  • Twins' Rob Refsnyder: Out with elbow injury

    Refsnyder was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a right elbow impingement, Brandon Warne of Access Twins reports.

    The severity of the injury is not yet clear, though Refsnyder doesn't have much time to return before the end of the year, as he won't be eligible to return until the final week of the season even if he misses just the minimum 10 days. Drew Maggiwas called up to fill Refsnyder's place on the roster.

  • Twins' Rob Refsnyder: Sitting Wednesday

    Refsnyder is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against Cleveland.

    After a stretch of three straight starts in which he went 1-for-9 with a double and a run scored, Refsnyder will give way to Jake Cave in left field for the series finale. Brent Rooker (personal) is expected to return from the paternity list this weekend in Toronto and take back primary duties in left field, so Refsnyder's window for steady playing time looks to have closed.

  • Twins' Rob Refsnyder: Replaces Brent Rooker in outfield

    Refsnyder will start in left field and bat seventh Monday against the Yankees.

    After going 1-for-4 with a run in Sunday's 5-3 loss to the Royals while filling in for a resting Max Kepler in right field, Refsnyder will shift over to the other corner-outfield spot to replace Brent Rooker (personal), who was moved to the paternity list Sunday. Rooker should be on track to take back a near-everyday role in left once he returns by the middle of the week, so Refsnyder looks like he'll be in store for only a short-term bump in playing time.

  • Twins' Rob Refsnyder: Filling in for Max Kepler

    Refsnyder will start in right field and bat third Monday against Cleveland.

    Refsnyder will pick up his second start in three games, this time filling in for Max Kepler in right field. The lefty-hitting Kepler should be a fixture in the lineup versus right-handed pitching, but Refsnyder could still contend for a regular role in left field, which remains unsettled. Manager Rocco Baldelli will hand Brent Rooker the start in left in Monday's game, making Rooker the fourth different player in as many days to cover the position.

  • Twins' Rob Refsnyder: Returns to bench

    Refsnyder is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Red Sox.

    Refsnyder will retreat to the bench after he started in left field in both of the Twins' last two games versus the Yankees this weekend, going 1-for-8 between those contests. Brent Rooker will be back in the lineup Tuesday, but Refsnyder looks to be encroaching on his role as the Twins' top option in left field.

  • Twins' Rob Refsnyder: On base four times

    Refsnyder went 2-for-3 with a double, two runs, two walks and a strikeout in a 5-3 triumph over the Astros on Thursday.

    Refsnyder singled and scored in the first as part of a four-run inning, walked in the sixth, doubled and scored in the eighth and walked in the ninth to reach base four times for the second time this season. The utility man has enjoyed a successful 2021 campaign solely in the outfield with a .339/.403/.525 slash line, albeit in only 19 games and 67 plate appearances.

  • Twins' Rob Refsnyder: Returns from IL

    The Twins reinstated Refsnyder (hamstring) from the 10-day injured list Thursday, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    A hamstring strain had sidelined Refsnyder since June 14. Before the injury, he appeared in 18 games and hit .321 with 10 RBI in 56 at-bats. Nick Gordon was optioned to Triple-A St. Paul in a corresponding move.

  • Twins' Rob Refsnyder: Starts rehab assignment

    Refsnyder (hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A St. Paul on Tuesday, Brandon Warne of Access Twins reports.

    Refsnyder has been out with a strained left hamstring since mid-June. He hit surprisingly well in a small sample of 18 games prior to the injury, posting a .321/.371/.500 slash line, though a .400 BABIP deserves some of the credit for his success. That performance could earn him more looks down the stretch, however, especially if the Twins thin their roster out with some deadline deals.

  • Twins' Rob Refsnyder: Close to running

    Manager Rocco Baldelli said Monday that Refsnyder (hamstring) will resume jogging soon, Do-Hyoung Park of reports.

    Baldelli said that the club envisions the hamstring injury requiring 2-to-4 weeks in total to recover from, so given that Refsnyder has been out a week now, the outfielder figures to be anywhere from a week to three weeks from being activated. The longer he's unable to take live reps, however, the more likely the 30-year-old is to require a rehab assignment prior to being reinstated.

  • Twins' Rob Refsnyder: Lands on injured list

    Refsnyder was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday with a strained left hamstring, Daniel Guerrero of reports.

    Refsnyder returned from a four-game absence Sunday, but he's apparently not recovered from the hamstring injury. Byron Buxton (hip) is closing in on his return from the injured list, but Gilberto Celestino should continue to work in center field until Buxton is officially activated.

  • Twins' Rob Refsnyder: Returns to lineup Sunday

    Refsnyder (hamstring) is back in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Astros.

    Refsynder hasn't played since exiting Tuesday's game against the Yankees with a left hamstring injury. The utility man has been considered day-to-day throughout the week, and he now feels good enough to rejoin the lineup. He'll bat fourth and play right field in Sunday's rubber match.

  • Twins' Rob Refsnyder: Remains out of lineup

    Refsnyder (hamstring) isn't in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Yankees.

    Refsnyder suffered a left hamstring injury in Tuesday's loss to New York, and he'll remain out of the lineup for a second straight contest. Gilberto Celestino will start in center field and bat ninth.

  • Twins' Rob Refsnyder: Ready for activation

    Refsnyder (concussion) has passed the concussion protocol and will be activated Tuesday, Do-Hyoung Park of reports.

    A high-speed collision with the center-field wall gave Refsnyder both a concussion and quad soreness, but a week off allowed him time to recover from both injuries. Gilberto Celestino was optioned Tuesday to open a roster spot for Refsnyder.

  • Twins' Rob Refsnyder: Unavailable Wednesday

    Refsnyder (hamstring) won't be available for Wednesday's game against the Yankees, Do-Hyoung Park of reports.

    The Twins will delay moving Refsnyder to the 10-day injured list for the time being, but he could be at risk of being shut down again if he fails to demonstrate much progress in his recovery from the left hamstring injury by the time the weekend arrives. Refsnyder made his return from the IL on Tuesday after he had missed the Twins' previous six games with a sore quadriceps and a concussion.

  • Twins' Rob Refsnyder: Picks up hamstring injury

    Refsnyder was removed from Tuesday's game against the Yankees with left hamstring tightness, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    The 30-year-old was activated from the 7-day concussion injured list Tuesday and went 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI before leaving with the injury. The severity of the hamstring issue remains unclear, and Refsnyder should be considered day-to-day until his status is updated.

  • Twins' Rob Refsnyder: Dealing with concussion

    Refsnyder (concussion) was placed on the 7-day concussion list Wednesday, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    The outfielder had already been dealing with quad soreness before slamming into the outfield wall Monday in pursuit of a ball off the bat of Ryan Mountcastle and suffering a concussion. The time off should not only help Refsnyder clear concussion protocol, it will provide his ailing quad some valuable recovery time as well. Gilberto Celestino was recalled from Triple-A St. Paul to fill Refsnyder's roster spot.
