Yankees Farm Report Part Four: Triple-A Scranton RailRiders
And for ol’ lang syne, we will start with alliterative utilityman Rob Refsnyder. Ref has rehabilitated his career this season, slashing 303./391/.454. More importantly, he has shown immense improvement in the weakest part of his game: Defense. Rob has only two errors in 33 games in Pennsylvania while playing first, second, and left field.
And he has zero in the six games he has appeared for Yankees in.
Refsnyder is 26 and will be traded this year, while his value is at its highest because he is not better than at least seven current Yankees infielders. He must be used to acquire a better player, probably as a package.
If you are wondering why Ref is included here as a prospect, it is because he is a temporary player in the Bronx and still part of the farm system.
The remaining infielders of note are both first baseman: Tyler Austin and Ji-Man Choi; Austin first.
