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.

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.

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

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.

Gilberto Celestino was recalled from Triple-A St. Paul to fill Refsnyder's roster spot.

The Twins will get Nelson Cruz (wrist) back from a six-game hiatus Wednesday, but Josh Donaldson is resting, while Luis Arraez (shoulder) was moved to the 10-day injured list. The absences of Arraez and Byron Buxton (hip) should open up playing time in center field for Refsnyder so long as he continues to wield a hot bat. Refsnyder will pick up his eighth consecutive start Wednesday after going 8-for-23 with two home runs, two doubles and three walks over those previous seven games.
Refsnyder went 3-for-4 with a home run, two doubles, two RBI and three runs scored Tuesday against the Orioles.
Refsnyder provided a big boost to the Twins' offense, with his most prominent contribution being an eighth-inning solo homer.

Refsnyder will start in center field and bat eighth Sunday against Cleveland.
Though he'll be making a fifth straight start in center field, Refsnyder's path to everyday at-bats could become more blocked after Alex Kirilloff (wrist) returned from the injured list Friday. Assuming Nelson Cruz (wrist) and Jorge Polanco (ankle) are able to move past the injuries that have sidelined them for the past few games, Refsnyder will likely find himself behind Kirilloff, Max Kepler, Luis Arraez and Trevor Larnach in the pecking order for reps in the outfield. Refsnyder is hitting .400 with a home run and four RBI over his eight games with the Twins since being called up from Triple-A St. Paul in mid-May.

Getting the start in center field for a Twins team running low on healthy outfielders, Refsnyder put together his second multi-hit performance in two starts since being added to the roster. As long as the 30-year-old keeps hitting, he'll keep seeing action, but a career .606 OPS over 457 big-league PAs prior to Monday suggests his hot streak won't last long.

Refsnyder went 2-for-4 in Saturday's 7-3 loss to the Giants.
