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

EDGE Analysis

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.

Refsnyder was traded from the Diamondbacks to the Reds on Sunday for a player to be named later or cash.

EDGE Analysis

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.

Refsnyder was assigned to minor-league camp Friday.

EDGE Analysis

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.

Refsnyder agreed Wednesday with the Diamondbacks on a one-year, minor-league contract.

EDGE Analysis

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 some degree with the ability to play both corner-outfield spots and three infield positions.

Refsnyder was sent down to the minors Monday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

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 move was made to make room on the 40-man roster for the impending activation of Kevin Kiermaier.

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

EDGE Analysis

Refsnyder had started the past four games in left field, going 1-for-14 with a walk in 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.

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

EDGE Analysis

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.

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

EDGE Analysis

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 the left field with Johnny Field.

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

EDGE Analysis

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.
