  • Red Sox's Rob Refsnyder: Making second straight start

    Refsnyder will start in left field for a second straight game Sunday, Christopher Smith of reports.

    Refsnyder started in left field Saturday while Masataka Yoshida served as the designated hitter, but the latter was removed from the game after getting hit by a pitch on the leg.

  • Red Sox's Rob Refsnyder: In Monday's lineup

    Refsnyder will start in left field and bat third in Monday's game against the Angels, Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports.

    Refsnyder's received several starts -- in center field and left field -- over the last week with Adam Duvall (wrist) on the injured list and Masataka Yoshida out with a hamstring injury. Refsnyder started in left field Sunday when Yoshida returned as the designated hitter and will remain there Monday, as the Red Sox bring Yoshida back slowly following a four-game absence. Jarren Duran has been called up from Triple-A Worcester on Monday and will start in center field, Duvall's position. The Red Sox could end up settling on a platoon in center field with some combination of Refsnyder and Enrique Hernandez as the right-handed options and Duran and Raimel Tapia as the left-handed options.

  • Red Sox's Rob Refsnyder: Starting again Friday

    Refsnyder is starting again in left field and batting third for the Red Sox on Friday versus the Angels.

  • Red Sox's Rob Refsnyder: Homers in loss

    Refsnyder went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Thursday's 9-3 loss to the Rays.

    Refsnyder took Jeffrey Springs deep with two outs in the first inning, giving the Red Sox an early 1-0 lead. It's the first homer of the season for Refsnyder, who hit six in 153 at-bats last season. The 32-year-old outfielder has gotten off to a sluggish start at the plate this year, going 4-for-22 with five runs and four RBI. However, Refsnyder could see a boost in playing time with Masataka Yoshida (hamstring) day-to-day and Adam Duvall (wrist) set for an extended absence.

  • Red Sox's Rob Refsnyder: Out of lineup vs. righty

    Refsnyder is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game versus the Rays.

    Refsnyder went a combined 0-for-7 while starting in center field in both of the first two games of the series at Tampa Bay, which came with the Rays bringing a pair of left-handed starting pitchers to the hill. The righty-hitting Refsnyder will give way to the lefty-hitting Raimel Tapia in center field Wednesday while Boston faces a right-hander (Taj Bradley) for the first time in the series. Manager Alex Cora could end up taking a platoon approach to center field while Adam Duvall (wrist) is out indefinitely, meaning that Refsnyder could see fewer opportunities than Tapia moving forward.

  • Red Sox's Rob Refsnyder: Starts in CF

    Refsnyder started in center field and went 0-for-3 in Monday's 1-0 loss to Tampa Bay.

    Refsnyder was given the first crack at replacing Adam Duvall (wrist) in center field, but it sounds like manager Alex Cora has multiple lineup iterations to cover for the injured Duvall, per Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican. Refsnyder (39 career games in center) and Raimel Tapia (77) are both capable of playing there. Refsnyder is expected to start against left-handers, and the Red Sox are projected to see a slew of them over the next week or so, but Cora said he may also use Enrique Hernandez, who is playing shortstop to start 2023 but served as Boston's primary center fielder the last two seasons. Lastly, Jarren Duran, a natural center fielder at Triple-A Worcester, could eventually enter the mix after's the team's stretch against left-handed starters. That's why the club opted to bring up the righty-hitting Bobby Dalbec after placing Duvall on the IL.

  • Red Sox's Rob Refsnyder: Brings home two in rout

    Refsnyder went 1-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored in Saturday's win over Detroit. He also drew a walk.

Refsnyder has gone 2-for-9 over five games in 2023, and he isn't likely to see much playing time unless a southpaw is on the mound.
