Minnesota Twins outfielder Rob Refsnyder went 3-for-4 with two doubles, a homer, three runs, and two RBI in a 7-4 win over the Orioles on Tuesday.
Refsnyder racked up three extra-base hits as he tormented Baltimore pitching all evening. After injuries forced him into a regular role, the 30-year-old is red-hot at the plate, hitting .438 with two homers, eight runs, and seven RBI in 32 at-bats.
Rob Refsnyder who was just recently acquired by the Blue Jays in a trade with the Yankees, has been recalled from Triple-A to take the place of Troy Tulowitzki (ankle) who was placed on the 10-day DL on Saturday.
Refsnyder will serve as bench depth in the infield and outfield for the Blue Jays. He has played 94 career games in the majors with the Yankees batting .241 with two home runs, 17 RBIs and six steals. Refsnyder is only worth fantasy consideration in AL-only leagues.
The Yankees traded utility man Rob Refsnyder to the Toronto Blue Jays for first baseman Ryan Mcbroom.
The Yankees having so many middle infield/outfield options and organizational depth left no room for Refsnyder. First base was the greater need.
Rob Refsnyder went 1-for-4 with one RBI in a 9-2 loss to the Orioles in game one. He went 2-for-4 in a 4-3 loss to the Orioles in game two.
Rob Refsnyder on the season is hitting .302 with 2 homers and 5 RBI. He is hitting .333 during the last 7 days.
New York Yankees 2B Rob Refsnyder is expected to remain with the team following the All-Star break.
The Yankees haven't received much in the way of production from 2B this season, so the bar wasn't set too high prior to Refsnyder's call up. The 24-year-old isn't an elite prospect by any means, but he's shown an ability to get on base at an above-average clip in the minors. Considering the Yankees' lineup, he's a player to monitor in season-long leagues and an option in DFS.
