Yankees Likely Won't Call Up Refsnyder in 2014

Since getting promoted to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre a little over a month ago, Yankees Infield Prospect Rob Refsnyder has done pretty well. 

The 23-year-old ex-Arizona Wildcat, whom the Yanks selected 187th overall in the 2012 Draft, has hit a nice .311 with 6 home runs and 16 RBI in 34 games, making many fans want him to get called up to the big leagues.

Still, unfortunetaly for those people, team GM Brian Cashman doesn't share their opinion, saying earlier today that the Bombers have no plans to play Refsnyder in 2014.

"My preference would be to let him play the year in Triple-A," Cashman told The Journal News' Chad Jennings. "We're looking toward him more for 2015, but that doesn't mean he can't get here in 2014. But I wouldn't bet on it."

Prior to joining the Railriders, Refsnyder also swung the bat impressively with Double-A Trenton (batting .342 in 60 contests), something that can only be considered as more evidence for him soon putting on Pinstripes.

Currently, the 47-47 Yankees are starting Brian Roberts every day at Second Base, a move that hasn't really worked out so far, with Roberts offering little-to-no production in the bottom of the lineup.

  1. All the more reason that Brian Cashman should be fired.

  2. Amen Daniel. We have a second basemen that's hitting .240 with 4 home runs and playing subpar defense. I don't want them to release Roberts, but we are much better off with Refsnyder as our starting 2b.

    1. This is the difference between teams like the Cardinals, Red Sox, etc. and us.
