After starting the season in Triple-A Scranton, New York Yankees top prospect Rob Refsnyder will be promoted to the Yankees major league roster for tomorrow’s matchup against the Boston Red Sox.
Refsnyder should give the Yankees a massive boost in the lineup, as he is taking over for Stephen Drew. The second basemen has hit just .182 this season, the lowest number in the MLB. He does have 12 home runs which is fourth on the team, but his low average has made him a liability in the lineup.
Where Refsnyder struggles is on the field. He has 13 errors at Scranton, but does have just two since June 2nd.
Refsnyder is hitting .290 with 7 home runs and 37 RBI’s this season. Many insiders and analysts have claimed they believe Refsnyder should be a good hitter at the major league level, and he still is just 24 years of age.
