Weekly Check In: Robert Refsnyder

The day of reckoning for Robert Refsnyder is coming. While you won’t see this on the major news sources like ESPN and MLB Network and you won’t read about this on the major blogs like River Avenue Blues and the others that are YES Network affiliated you will here because I’m not afraid to say it. I truly believe in my heart of hearts that judgement day is coming for Refsnyder before the end of this month. By the end of the July 31st trade deadline I believe that he will either be wearing a new uniform, and will likely be in the major leagues shortly after, or he will be on the major league roster either as the starting second baseman or in some sort of bench capacity.

Refsnyder’s defense is light years ahead of what it was at this point last season and it has come a considerably long way since Opening Day of 2015. His errors are being cut down tremendously by making the throws he is supposed to make and by eating the plays he was trying to do too much on earlier in the season. While he isn’t hitting at the enormous clip he was last season I truly think that has more to do with him being “over-groomed” and bored and less about his skill set. Refsnyder’s discouraged and he doesn’t feel like he has anything left to prove in the minor leagues and frankly, I agree.

Here is the stat line that Refsnyder will either help the Yankees with in a trade or on the major league roster:
