The Red Sox jumped back into the late-November Hot Stove chaos Tuesday, albeit with just a little bit of a leap.

According to a major league source, the Red Sox have agreed to terms with former Yankees utilityman Rob Refsnyder on a minor-league deal with an invitation to major league camp. MassLive.com was first to report the agreement.

The 30-year-old spent 2021 with the Twins, appearing in 51 major league games (all in the outfield). He hit .245 with an .663 OPS.

Prior to last season, Refsnyder played for the Rangers in 2020. He also played with Tampa Bay and Toronto after spending his first three seasons with the Yankees.

Refsnyder broke into the majors during the 2015 season, making his debut at Fenway Park on July 11. The following day he hit the first of his six major league home runs.
