You probably had a better weekend than Yankees infielder Rob Refsnyder. He was hit in the face by a ground ball not once, but twice in spring training action on Friday and Saturday. (Saturday, by the way, was his 26th birthday, as @CADBII pointed out to me on Twitter.) On Sunday, the Yankees optioned him to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Refsnyder had been playing third base to add some versatility in his quest to earn a spot on the Yankees’ bench. Aside from his first year of professional baseball in 2012, when he played right field, Refsnyder has exclusively played at second base.
