Refsnyder holds a poor .241/.312/.332 career batting line in 94 games at the major league level, but he was a well-regarded prospect not long ago and should find interest from other teams on the waiver wire.

Yankees recalled INF/OF Rob Refsnyder from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

He's taking the place of Greg Bird, who was placed on the DL with a bruised right ankle. The 26-year-old has hit just .260 with one homer in 77 at-bats for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this year. A jack of all trades, Refsnyder should see playing time at both first base and outfield with Bird and Jacoby Ellsbury (elbow) both battling injuries.

Rob Refsnyder will play first base, second base, third base and right field for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

The Yankees are hoping Refsnyder will be able to fill a utility role when he gets the call to New York later this year. Refsnyder has already shown considerable versatility at the major league level, starting games at first, second and both corner outfield spots for the pinstripes last season.
