Weekly Check In: Robert Refsnyder

Robert Refsnyder has been up and down for a lot of the past month but he may have seemingly found his niche with the Yankees this time around. Refsnyder can already play second base, third base in a pinch and right field and the Yankees have been adding him into their first base mix slowly since the Dustin Ackley injury. With that said Refsnyder may finally stick on the Major League roster for a while and we may have to find another Saturday morning check in. Frankly I am 100% okay with that.

Refsnyder continues to show that he is a tough at bat and an even tougher out at the MLB level although his bat was never the concern. It’s always been his defense and likely will always be his defense but don’t look now, Refsnyder may add another position to his repertoire soon enough with first base. The Yankees may have their own little super utility guy in the making.

If Refsnyder sticks with the big league club this will be the final check in with him or a while and we’ll find another notable prospect to check in with next Saturday. If he goes down this week this will continue to be his slot. Stay tuned. 



  1. How was he at first? Didn't get to see much of the game. Sooo much home makeover television

  2. I thought he actually looked pretty good over there. Fielded a few grounders, took a few throws.

    1. I agree with you Levin. The kid is an athlete let him play. The kid puts up two hits on Thursday night and he Clueless Joe 2 sits him. Does lets stay with a possible hot bat. If you think of this game it truly is a simple game. See ball, hit ball run. In the field its field ball throw ball to necessary base. Why does the Binder have to make things so difficult? There have been many a player that can rake that couldn't field to save their lives yet they were in the field. Clean house from the top to the bottom

    2. A bit radical isn't it Hans? We do have a few guys that are young enough to keep getting better.
      In the long haul, I think you are not the only one that has the opinion the Yankees need to clean a certain extent only! I too have the same wish but not everyone must go...ya think?
      I know that is what you had in mind anyhow. I'm just having fun, all my "Honey Do, List is done!" Nothing to do, drives me nuts!
      Have a good day!

    3. You too Reed enjoy your weekend


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
