It’s safe to say Rob Refsnyder had made a name for himself in the minor leagues, and he’s even earned some interest from Yankees fans, but as far as Brian Cashman is concerned, the Yankees have no plans of bringing up Refsnyder at this point in the season.
“My preference would be to let him play the year in Triple-A,” Cashman said. “… 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.”
Refsnyder is in his second year as a second basemen, and he has limited upper level at-bats, but Cashman added Refsnyder doesn’t have to be Rule 5 protected, which could ultimately help the roster fill a spot. While Refsnyder isn’t in the plans right now, Cashman did say the plans for the organization could change.
“He’s certainly put himself on the radar,” Cashman said. “Right now I don’t have any plans to call him up. That doesn’t mean it can’t happen.”
