Just a few weeks ago, the Yankees placed Rob Refsnyder on the trade block when it appeared he had become an obsolete piece to the team.
On Sunday, the Yankees showcased Refsnyder to one of the teams that were interested in acquiring him; the Tampa Bay Rays.
Refsnyder went in the game during the fifth inning of the Yankees 7-4 win against the Rays and went 1-for-1 with a double while drawing a walk.
Along with the Yankees showcasing Refsnyder, the Yankees have also released Jon Niese from his minor-league contract. However, the Yankees have expressed interest in Niese staying with the organization.
Also, Ruben Tejada had a so-so day for the Yankees. The good? He hit a home run. The bad? He flubbed two defensive plays at shortstop.
It was not a good day for the ex-New York Mets as now Tejada’s chances of making the team are slim.
