Rangers' Rob Refsnyder: Outrighted to alternate camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Refsnyder was sent outright to Texas' alternate camp site Thursday.

Refsnyder will remain in the Rangers organization after passing through waivers untouched. In 30 at-bats prior to being DFA'd, the utilityman hit .200/.265/.233.

Rangers' Rob Refsnyder: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Refsnyder was designated for assignment by the Rangers on Monday.

Refsnyder had a fairly consistent spot in the starting lineup to begin the season, but his playing time dipped in recent games. He'll now be removed from the 40-man roster after slashing .200/.265/.233 with one RBI and 11 strikeouts over 30 at-bats this year. It's unclear whether he'll find a spot with another organization. Leody Taveras was recalled from the team's alternate training site in a corresponding move to fill Refsnyder's role in the outfield.

Rangers' Rob Refsnyder: Smacks two hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Refsnyder has made only three appearances this season, but he has hit safely in each one of those games. It's hard to trust him on a regular basis due to his lack of playing time, but he is making an impact in a limited role early on.

Rangers' Rob Refsnyder: Starts at first base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Refsnyder started at first base and went 1-for-2 with a double and a run scored in Sunday's 5-2 loss to Colorado.

Three games into the season and the Rangers have deployed three different first basemen. That's the result of Todd Frazier moving to third base for games Saturday and Sunday while Isiah Kiner-Falefa (hamstring) was unavailable. Ronald Guzman started Saturday against a right-hander and Refsnyder was in the lineup against a left-hander. Texas manager Chris Woodward is hopeful Kiner-Falefa will return Tuesday after Monday's off day, per T.R. Sullivan of

Rangers' Rob Refsnyder: Receives roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Refsnyder will be included on the Rangers' Opening Day roster, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.

Refsnyder joined Texas as a non-roster invitee in November and made a strong impression before spring training was shut down. The 29-year-old last appeared in the majors with Tampa Bay in 2019 and had a .877 OPS at Triple-A last season.

Rangers' Rob Refsnyder: Finds summer home with Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Refsnyder was named to the Rangers' 60-man player pool Sunday.

Refsnyder trained with the Rangers in spring training as a non-roster invitee and made a positive impression before MLB paused the season. He's an ideal add to any team's player pool. The 29-year-old outfielder, who has history at second and first base, played parts of four seasons in the majors before spending the entirety of 2019 in the minors with the Diamondbacks and Reds.

Rangers' Rob Refsnyder: Signs minor-league contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Refsnyder signed a minor-league contract with the Rangers on Wednesday that includes an invite to spring training, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

In 85 games with Triple-A Louisville last season, Refsnyder slashed .315/.377/.500 with 10 home runs and 45 RBI, but he has failed to translate his minor-league production into major-league success. He carries a .218/.308/.302 slash line with four home runs through 166 games over four partial big-league seasons. While his contract includes an invitation to spring training, it would be somewhat surprising to see him take on a consistent role in the Rangers' outfield, given his lack of success in the past.

Rob Refsnyder: Parting ways with Cincinnati
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cincinnati released Refsynder from his minor-league contract Tuesday, Andersen Pickard of reports.

The 28-year-old utility man was an above-average regular during his time in the Triple-A ranks this season, slashing .312/.374/.492 across 338 plate appearances (122 wRC+). He shouldn't have trouble landing another minor-league deal elsewhere, though he may have to wait until the offseason to find a new organization.

Reds' Rob Refsnyder: Traded to Cincinnati
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Diamondbacks' Rob Refsnyder: Reassigned to minor-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Diamondbacks' Rob Refsnyder: Inks minor-league deal with Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rays' Rob Refsnyder: Outrighted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rays' Rob Refsnyder: Dropped from 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rays' Rob Refsnyder: Hits bench after four straight starts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Refsnyder is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Blue Jays, Joey Knight of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Refsnyder had started the past four games in left field, going 1-for-14 with a walk and a run scored in those contests. With Johnny Field re-entering the lineup Wednesday and starting in the outfield after a knee injury prevented him from playing Tuesday, Refsnyder looks set to fade back to a reserve role.

Rays' Rob Refsnyder: Losing time to Field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Refsnyder is out of the lineup Sunday against the Mariners, Greg Johns of reports.

Refsnyder will be on the bench for the fourth time in seven games while the Rays run out an outfield of Carlos Gomez, Mallex Smith and Johnny Field. A timeshare had previously been in place in the corner outfield between Refsnyder and Field, but the latter's comparatively hotter bat has made him the clear Option 1A over the past week. Refsnyder offers the better plate discipline of the two players with a .358 on-base percentage on the season, but he can't match the speed or power upside Field brings to the table and is thus the less interesting fantasy entity.

Rays' Rob Refsnyder: Smacks three-run blast Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Refsnyder went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run in a win over the Athletics on Wednesday.

Refsnyder extended the Athletics' lead to 4-0 with a 381-foot shot to center in the third, plating C.J. Cron and Wilson Ramos. The blast helped support a brilliant debut effort by Nathan Eovaldi and was Refsnyder's first round tripper since April 27. The 27-year-old now has a modest four-game hitting streak as he continues to split time in left field with Johnny Field.

Rays' Rob Refsnyder: Sits again Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Refsnyder isn't in Tuesday's starting lineup against the Athletics, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Refsnyder will take a seat for the second straight game with Johnny Field taking over in left field and batting ninth. He's batting a dismal .208 with one home run and two RBI across 28 games this season with the Rays.

Rays' Rob Refsnyder: Out of lineup Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Refsnyder is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Athletics, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Despite reaching base six times over the past two games, Refsnyder will head to the bench while Johnny Field picks up a start in left field. Refsnyder started the first three games following Denard Span's departure, so he figures to continue to see opportunities so long as he holds his own at the dish.

Rays' Rob Refsnyder: Earns third straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Refsnyder will start in left field and bat ninth Sunday against the Orioles.

Refsnyder will be rewarded with a third consecutive start after going 3-for-6 with a walk, run and RBI over the first two games of the series. His entry into the lineup was made possible by Friday's trade that sent Denard Span to the Mariners, with Refsnyder getting the call over Johnny Field to man left field. Look for Refsnyder to receive steady at-bats against both right- and left-handed pitching so long as his acquits himself well at the plate.

Rays' Rob Refsnyder: Additional playing time on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

According to manager Kevin Cash, Refsnyder will see more playing time during Carlos Gomez's stint on the disabled list with a groin strain, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The 27-year-old has put in minimal time in Gomez's right field spot so far this season, but it appears he and Johnny Field will split duties while the veteran remains sidelined. Refsnyder is in the midst of a second consecutive difficult season at the plate, however, slashing just .167/.333/.278 over his first 45 plate appearances after generating a .170/.247/.216 line over 97 plate appearances with the Yankees in 2017.
