Ji-Man Choi (Cheryl Pursell)


Today’s Transactions – Wednesday, July 19, 2017

The first series of today’s moves come from the blockbuster deal that occurred late last night when the Yankees acquired Todd Frazier, David Robertson, and Tommy Kahnle.

In order to make room for the trio of newly-acquired Bombers on the 25-man roster, New York designated Rob Refsnyder and Ji-Man Choi for assignment, while optioning Chasen Shreve to the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (Triple-A).

Refsnyder, 26, has slashed .135/.200/.216 this season in the major leagues. The University of Arizona product has just collected a measly five hits in 37 at bats in 2017. He has put up impressive career numbers in Triple-A, so he very well could be picked up by another organization in the coming days.

Choi, 26, was recently called up by New York prior to the All-Star Game to fill in at first base until the Yankees found a solution. With the acquisition of Garrett Cooper and Frazier, he is no longer needed at the major league level and should report back to Triple-A.

Shreve, 27, sports a 3-1 record to combine with a 2.77 ERA for New York. He’s logged 26 innings and struck out 31 compared to 14 walks.

In other news, Joe Harvey was activated off the 7-Day Disabled List for the Tampa Yankees (Single-A Advanced), and Adonis Rosa was transferred from the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to the Charleston RiverDogs (Single-A).
