RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

With just 16 games under his belt, Refsnyder was plugged into the starting lineup in the Yankees' lone playoff game in 2015, so it looked like he may have earned the organization's trust and a larger role in 2016. Instead, the club acquired Starlin Castro to man the keystone, and after taking some reps at third base in spring training, Refsnyder was sent back to the minors to open up the season. He ended up making multiple trips back and forth between the majors and minors. When all was said and done, the 25-year-old proved to be extremely versatile with at least four starts in the big leagues at first base, right field, second base, and left field. At the plate, he put together an impressive line in 54 games at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, but other than his ability to draw walks, that success didn't translate to the majors. With a crowded depth chart yet again, Refsnyder could face a similar fate this season as a backup option at several positions or a starter in the minors.

2016

Refsnyder, following another impressive campaign at the Triple-A level, was given his first chance in the majors in 2015, eventually leading to a platoon role late in September and being tabbed as a starter in the AL Wild Card game. The 24-year-old posted an impressive .302/.348/.512 line in 16 games, and actually had a .385 average against righties despite primarily being used against southpaws. That the Yankees thought highly enough of the 24-year-old to start him in a win-or-go-home game bodes well for Refsnyder, who will battle for a utility role this spring. The converted outfielder has had some questions regarding his defense, but he looked more than capable at second in the majors, so he could be given the opportunity to earn a full-time role eventually if he continues his production at the plate.

2015

The 23-year-old second baseman has put up very impressive slash lines over the past two seasons in the minor leagues, but his hit tool will have to carry him as he is lacking in the power and speed departments. Refsnyder earned a promotion to Triple-A last season after slashing .342/.385/.548 with six home runs and five steals in 60 games at Double-A Trenton. His .391 BABIP had a lot to do with that production, but he still managed to exceed expectations after leaving Trenton thanks to a less aggressive approach. Stephen Drew was brought in during the offseason to provide a short-term solution at second base, meaning Refsnyder will likely head back to Triple-A to begin 2015, but he could get the call if Drew gets hurt or struggles for another prolonged stretch.
