  • Red Sox's Rob Refsnyder: Nabs third straight start

    Refsnyder will start in right field and bat leadoff in Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Refsnyder will pick up his third straight start -- all of which have come out of the leadoff spot -- after he went 2-for-5 with a home run and three RBI in Tuesday's 6-5 loss. Though he's turned in a stellar 1.076 OPS over his 13 games with Boston this season, Refsnyder is expected to move back into a short-side platoon role by the weekend. Fellow outfielder Jarren Duran (personal) will be eligible to come off the restricted list for Friday's series opener in Chicago and should recapture a regular spot in the lineup versus right-handed pitching.

  • Red Sox's Rob Refsnyder: Starts in center field

    Refsnyder started in center field, batted leadoff and went 0-for-4 with a walk in Monday's 7-2 loss to the Blue Jays.

    Refsnyder took over in center field for Jarren Duran, who is unvaccinated for COVID-19 and thus unable to enter Canada. Refsnyder has been productive since coming up to Boston earlier this month, going 10-for-24 (.417) with five RBI and seven runs scored prior to Monday's game. He's expected to remain in the lineup for the final two games of the series in Toronto.

  • Red Sox's Rob Refsnyder: Produces off bench

    Refsnyder went 1-for-2 with a walk, a double, an RBI and a run scored in Friday's 6-3 win over Cleveland.

    Refsnyder walked as a pinch hitter for Jackie Bradley in the seventh inning and got two more plate appearances over the final two innings. His ninth-inning double produced Boston's final run. With Jarren Duran (unvaccinated) unable to travel to Toronto next week and Enrique Hernandez (hip) batting an injury, Refsnyder should see action in the three-game set beginning Monday and stick on the MLB roster for the immediate future. During his callup to Boston, Refsnyder is 10-for-24 (.417) with one home run, two doubles, five RBI and seven runs over eight games.

  • Red Sox's Rob Refsnyder: Drills first homer

    Refsnyder went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run, a double and an additional run in Wednesday's 6-2 win against the Tigers.

    Refsnyder broke a 2-2 tie with his two-run shot to left field in the third inning, and he scored after smacking a double in the fifth. This was his fifth straight appearance with at least one hit, and he has gone 8-for-16 (.500) with four RBI over that span. He's hitting a robust .408 in 32 plate appearances on the campaign.

  • Red Sox's Rob Refsnyder: Back in action Sunday

    Refsnyder (undisclosed) is starting in right field and batting leadoff Sunday versus the Cardinals, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

    Refsnyder hasn't been in the lineup since Tuesday while dealing with some general soreness, but he'll rejoin the starting nine for Sunday's series finale. He's hit well since being promoted June 9, going 6-for-13 with an RBI and four runs scored.

  • Red Sox's Rob Refsnyder: 'Banged up' after three-hit game

    Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Wednesday during his appearance on SportsRadio 93.7 WEEI-FM's "Merloni, Fauria, & Mego" program that Refsnyder is "banged up" coming out of Tuesday's 6-1 win over the Athletics.

    Refsnyder, who went 3-for-4 with a run and an RBI on Tuesday while making his second straight start in center field, doesn't sound like he'll be included in the lineup for Wednesday's contest. With Cora also confirming that Christian Arroyo (illness) tested positive for COVID-19, Jarren Duran will be called up from Triple-A Worcester and will pick up a start in the outfield Wednesday.

  • Red Sox's Rob Refsnyder: Three hits in win

    Refsnyder went 3-for-4 with a run and a sacrifice fly during Tuesday's 6-1 win over the Athletics.

    Refsnyder hit leadoff for the third time in the past four games -- all three of which have come against a left-handed starting pitcher -- and he set the table perfectly Tuesday. The 31-year-old should continue to have a regular role against lefties until Enrique Hernandez (hip) is able to return from the injured list.

  • Red Sox's Rob Refsnyder: Involved in win

    Refsnyder started in center field, went 0-for-3, was hit by a pitch, and scored the winning run in Sunday's 2-0 win over the Mariners.

    Refsnyder made his second start in the last three games, both against left-handers, and was one of many supporting players in the win. The leading player in the win was Rafael Devers, who drilled a two-run home run in the top of the eighth inning after Refsnyder was hit by a pitch. In the bottom half of the frame, Refsnyder fully extended to rob Ty France of extra bases. Refsnyder is up with Boston while Enrique Hernandez is sidelined by a hip injury. He's expected to start in center or right field against lefties.

  • Red Sox's Rob Refsnyder: Back with Boston

    Refsnyder was recalled by the Red Sox from Triple-A Worcester on Thursday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Refsnyder was briefly with the team at the end of April, but he earned only six plate appearances prior to being demoted. He's likely to serve as outfield depth while Enrique Hernandez (hip) is sidelined. Refsnyder has maintained a .306 average with Worcester this season, though he is a career .226 hitter at the big-league level.

  • Red Sox's Rob Refsnyder: Sent to minors

    Refsnyder was optioned to Triple-A Worcester on Friday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Refsnyder has been with the big-league club for the past 10 days and went 2-for-5 with two doubles, a walk and an RBI during his brief time in the majors. Jaylin Davis was promoted in a corresponding move for outfield depth.

  • Red Sox's Rob Refsnyder: Gets call-up to majors

    The Red Sox selected Refsnyder's contract from Triple-A Worcester on Tuesday.

    Refsnyder will give Boston another utility option off the bench after Jonathan Arauz was placed on the COVID-19-related injured list in a corresponding move. Though he's primarily played center field at Triple-A this season, Refsnyder possesses ample experience at second base, where Arauz had made all three of his starts for Boston in 2022.

  • Red Sox's Rob Refsnyder: Starting 2022 in Triple-A

    The Red Sox will reassign Refsnyder to Triple-A Worcester on Monday after he didn't make Boston's Opening Day roster, Chad Jennings of The Athletic reports.

    Updating an erroneous report earlier indicating that Refsnyder made the Opening Day roster, he'll instead head to the minors to begin the 2022 campaign. The versatile 31-year-old will likely be on the radar for a potential call-up at some point in the coming months after nearly making Boston's roster out of spring training.

  • Red Sox's Rob Refsnyder: Snags Opening Day roster spot

    Refsnyder has made the Red Sox Opening Day roster, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports,

    The outfielder signed a minor-league deal with a spring training invite in November, batting .185 with three extra-base hits, four runs and two RBI while striking out 11 times over 27 at-bats. Refsnyder produced a slash of .245/.325/.338 with nine extra-base hits and 21 runs in 51 games with the Twins in 2021. The 31-year-old will likely operate as a depth option in the outfield, drawing only the occasional spot start.

  • Red Sox's Rob Refsnyder: Starting Grapefruit League opener

    Refsnyder is starting Thursday's Grapefruit League opener against the Twins, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.

    Refsnyder missed the end of the 2021 campaign with a right elbow impingement, but he'll start in left field and bat fourth in Thursday's spring game. He'll have a chance to compete for a depth role with the Red Sox as a non-roster invitee during camp.

  • 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.
