Rob RefsnyderOne of the best position players in the Yankees’ farm system, Refsnyder had an outstanding year between the Trenton Thunder and Scranton/Wilkes Barre Railriders (.318/.387/.497 with 14 home runs and 63 RBI.)

Refsnyder has improved every year since being selected in the fifth round of the 2012  amateur draft:

Batting Average/Hits/Doubles/HR/RBI/OPS

2012: .241/39/8/4/22/.683

2013: .293/137/32/6/57/.826

2014: .318/164/38/14/63/.884

He is more of a typical second baseman as he only played one other position in 2014 (9 games in right field), but his bat will be a nice weapon for Joe Girardi to have when needed.

He could also take over as the starting second baseman, but if not, he’s a nice player to have on the bench.
