GM Brian Cashman said he made the move because Refsnyder just is not ready for the bigs yet.

LoHud | Chad Jennings: Manager Joe Girardi says that the backup catcher job is still up for grabs, with the leading candidates being Austin Romine and John Ryan Murphy. Girardi, Romine, and Murphy all comment on the competition.
