2015 Player Profile: Rob Refsynder

In 2015, middle infielder Rob Refsnyder will be looking to find a spot on this new Yankees team. Refsnyder is 23 years old and very versatile as he can play many positions on the diamond which could help him make this team. In 77 games in AAA Scranton Wilkes Barrie, Refsynder hit .300, 8 home runs, and had 33 RBI. Refsnyder also spent time in AA Trenton in 2014 and he hit .342 with 6 home runs and 30 RBI. This will be Refsynder's third season with the Yankees after being drafted in the fifth round of the 2012 MLB Amateur Draft. Refsnyder will be in a huge competition if he hopes to make the team. He will have to overtake the incumbent Stephen Drew as well as Brendan Ryan to start. Refsnyder does have youth and promise on his side and with an impressive spring he may be the Yankees starting second baseman.
