Player Outlook
The Red Sox are pleased with Rob Refsnyder as a depth outfielder that hits lefties well (.828 OPS in 2023) and inked him to a deal for the 2024 season. For the first time in his career, Refsnyder will not have to enter the offseason seeking a minor-league contract with yet another organization - Boston is the sixth stop. The trade of Alex Verdugo to the Yankees, along with Adam Duvall hitting free agency, means Boston's outfield has a different look. Tyler O'Neill, acquired during the winter meetings, is expected to take over in right field with Masataka Yoshida in left and one of a group that includes Wilyer Abreu, Jarren Duran and Cedanne Rafaela in center. It's unlikely that Refsnyder, who had a career-high 242 plate appearances in 2023, will be anything more than a fourth outfielder or the short side of a platoon, and both the player and team are happy with that.

  • Red Sox's Rob Refsnyder: Getting eighth straight start

    Refsnyder will start in right field and bat second in Wednesday's game against the Phillies. Refsnyder will pick up his eighth consecutive start Wednesday, but his run of regular playing time could come to an abrupt end in the coming days. In addition to bringing back Masataka Yoshida from the 10-day injured list Tuesday, the Red Sox returned another key regular to the lineup in Tyler O'Neill (knee), who will serve as Boston's designated hitter Wednesday following a three-game absence. Assuming O'Neill is cleared to play the corner outfield in the near future, Refsnyder could soon be relegated to a short-side platoon role. Wilyer Abreu (ankle) is also close to a return from the 10-day IL to further muddle Refsnyder's path to seeing steady at-bats versus right-handed pitching.

  • Red Sox's Rob Refsnyder: Doubles twice in win

    Refsnyder went 3-for-6 with two doubles and one run scored in Thursday's 14-2 win over the White Sox. Refsnyder got the start in right field and extended his hitting streak to nine games. In that span, he's gone 14-for-38 (.368) with five doubles and one home run. The outfielder has carried a high average all season, and he's now batting .346 through 35 contests. He's added just two homers, 14 RBI, 13 runs scored, one stolen base, 11 doubles and a triple over 116 plate appearances. Refsnyder splits his time between the corner outfield and designated hitter, and while he hasn't been limited to a true platoon role, he hasn't played on an everyday basis either.

  • Red Sox's Rob Refsnyder: Staying on bench Sunday

    Refsnyder is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Tigers. Refsnyder will be on the bench for a second straight game following a stretch of five consecutive starts. Though he's maintaining an excellent .333/.414/.517 slash line over 99 plate appearances on the season, Refsnyder still isn't being treated as an everyday player, at least against right-handed pitching. The Red Sox may continue to rotate a number of players at the designated-hitter spot against righties, with Garrett Cooper picking up the assignment Sunday.

  • Red Sox's Rob Refsnyder: Day off Saturday

    Refsnyder will sit Saturday versus the Tigers, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports. Refsnyder will get a breather after going 2-for-8 with a double and an RBI over the first two contests of the series, while he extended his hitting streak to five games Friday. Enmanuel Valdez will replace him at designated hitter and bat fifth against Detroit.

  • Red Sox's Rob Refsnyder: Homers in win

    Refsnyder went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer, a double and a second run scored in Tuesday's 8-3 win over the Orioles. Refsnyder doubled off Grayson Rodriguez in the first inning before scoring on a Rafael Devers' base hit. He'd then cap the scoring in the ninth with a two-run, 419-foot homer off Keegan Akin to push Boston's lead to 8-3. It's just the second long ball of the year for Refsnyder -- the other having come back on April 19 -- though he's been swinging the bat well of late, going 11-for-29 (.379) in his last 10 contests. Overall, Refsnyder's slashing an impressive .347/.437/.547 with 13 RBI, 11 runs scored and a steal through 28 games in a utility role with the Red Sox this season.

  • Red Sox's Rob Refsnyder: Leaves with hamstring tightness

    Refsnyder was removed from Sunday's game against the Twins with left hamstring tightness, Gabrielle Starr of the Boston Herald reports. Refsnyder started in left field and went 1-for-2 with an RBI prior to exiting the contest. He'll have Monday's team off day to recover ahead of Tuesday's series opener in Atlanta.

  • Red Sox's Rob Refsnyder: Continues to hit

    Refsnyder went 2-for-5 with a triple, an RBI and a run scored in Thursday's 6-4 loss to the Guardians. Refsnyder is raking during a five-game hit streak, going 9-for-20 with extra-base hits in all five contests. The plan was for him to play mostly against left-handers, but injuries to key players have led to four of his five starts coming versus righties, against whom he's 7-for-16 with five extra-base hits.

  • Red Sox's Rob Refsnyder: Back to bench Wednesday

    Refsnyder is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Guardians, Mac Cerullo of the Boston Herald reports. Refsnyder had started in right field in each of the previous four games, going 7-for-15 with one home run, four doubles, four runs, three RBI and one stolen base. Though his opportunities to start against right-handed pitching may become more scarce with Rafael Devers (knee) making his return from a one-week absence Wednesday, Refsnyder should still have the opportunity to play regularly versus southpaws.

  • Red Sox's Rob Refsnyder: Belts first homer

    Refsnyder went 2-for-5 with a double, a two-run home run and a second run scored in Friday's 8-1 win over the Pirates. He launched a Quinn Priester changeup over the fence in right-center field in the fifth inning to chase the Bucs right-hander from the game. Refsnyder got the nod in right field and hit third Friday in his first start since making his 2024 debut, and while most of his playing time this season will come against southpaws, injuries to Tyler O'Neill (concussion) and others could make him a lineup regular in the short term.

  • Red Sox's Rob Refsnyder: Enters as pinch hitter

    Refsnyder entered Thursday's game as a pinch hitter and went 0-for-1 in a 5-4 loss to Cleveland. Refsnyder pinch hit for second baseman Enmanuel Valdez and stayed in the game to play left field. It was the season debut for Refsnyder, who opened the year on the 10-day injured list due to a toe injury. He was activated to take the roster spot of Tyler O'Neill, who landed on the 7-day concussion list. Refsnyder will likely be in the starting nine whenever the Red Sox face a left-hander.

  • Red Sox's Rob Refsnyder: Returns from IL

    The Red Sox reinstated Refsnyder (toe) from the 10-day injured list Thursday. Refsnyder isn't included in the lineup for Thursday's series finale with the Guardians, but he should see regular playing time versus left-handed pitching as a possible platoon mate for the lefty-hitting Wilyer Abreu in the corner outfield. The 33-year-old also made a start at first base during his four-game rehab assignment with Triple-A Worcester, making him a possible option at that position if Triston Casas should need a day off. Refsnyder, who missed the first three weeks of the season with a fractured left pinkie toe, produced a .682 OPS in 242 plate appearances for Boston in 2023.

  • Red Sox's Rob Refsnyder: Nearing return

    Refsnyder (toe) will play at least one more full rehab game with Triple-A Worcester before being activated from the injured list, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports. Refsnyder noted that his fractured left pinky toe still isn't fully healed and he will just have to play through some pain. He also revealed that he's been told his main role upon his return will be as a late-inning pinch hitter or defensive replacement.

  • Red Sox's Rob Refsnyder: Will see time at first base

    Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Monday that Refsnyder (toe) will play some first base upon his return from the 10-day injured list, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports. Refsnyder has some experience at the position, although he hasn't played at that spot since joining the Red Sox in 2022. With the Red Sox outfield crowded at the moment, Refsnyder will be reintroduced to first base, where he could see occasional action versus lefties. Refsnyder is on a minor-league rehab assignment while working his way back from a fractured left pinky toe and could be activated before long.

  • Red Sox's Rob Refsnyder: Begins rehab assignment

    Refsnyder (toe) began a rehab assignment Wednesday at Triple-A Worcester and went hitless in three at-bats. Refsnynder struck out three times as the designated hitter for the WooSox before getting a day off Thursday. He's expected to play Friday, per Julian McWilliams of The Boston Globe, but he remains without a firm timeline for his return to the big-league roster.

  • Red Sox's Rob Refsnyder: Diagnosed with fractured toe

    Refsnyder was diagnosed Wednesday with a fractured left pinky toe, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports. Refsnyder suffered the injury when he was hit by pitch during Tuesday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals and could be sidelined 4-to-6 weeks, per Sean McAdam of MassLive.com. If there's a silver lining, Refsnyder's absence could make it easier for the Red Sox to carry Ceddanne Rafaela on the Opening Day roster.

  • Red Sox's Rob Refsnyder: Exits after HBP on foot

    Refsnyder was removed from Tuesday's Grapefruit League game versus the Cardinals after being hit on the left foot by a pitch, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports. Refsnyder said afterward that he has a crack in the small toe on the foot, although it's not clear whether he's referring to a fracture or something else. The Red Sox should offer more clarity on the outfielder's status soon.

  • Red Sox's Rob Refsnyder: Collects two RBI in win

    Refsynder went 1-for-2 with two RBI in Boston's 7-6 Grapefruit League win over Philadelphia on Monday. Refsynder smashed an RBI single in the bottom of the first inning and hit a groundball that resulted in another run for Boston later in the contest. It's a small sample size, but over three spring training games, the 32-year-old has maintained an impressive .900 on-base percentage. Given his career .324 slugging percentage, it's safe to say Refsnyder's value will be reliant on his positional versatility in the outfield. Expect the veteran to compete for a fourth or fifth outfielder spot throughout spring training.

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

    Refsnyder will start in left field for a second straight game Sunday, Christopher Smith of MassLive.com 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. X-rays came back negative, but Yoshida is being held out of Sunday's lineup, enabling Refsnyder to get into the lineup again. Refsnyder had a couple of hits, including a double, a walk and a stolen base (his fifth) Saturday.

  • Red Sox's Rob Refsnyder: Nabs fourth steal

    Refsnyder went 2-for-3 with a walk, a triple, two runs scored, two RBI and a stolen base in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Rockies. Getting the start in left field and hitting leadoff with lefty Austin Gomber on the mound for Colorado, Refsnyder connected on his first extra-base hit in June while producing his first multi-hit performance since May 24. The steal was his fourth of the season, tying his career high, and he continues to excel in his platoon role -- through 72 plate appearances against left-handed pitching this year, Refsnyder sports a .995 OPS.

  • Red Sox's Rob Refsnyder: Picks up second steal

    Refsnyder went 1-for-4 with a walk, a stolen base and a run scored in Friday's 7-2 win over the Diamondbacks. Refsnyder has drawn a walk in each of his last five games, though he remains confined to a limited role as a reserve outfielder. The 32-year-old has done well when called upon, getting aboard safely in six of his last seven contests to raise his slash line to .286/.409/.377 through 93 plate appearances. He's added a home runs, two steals, 17 RBI and 13 runs scored.
