Yankees place Rob Refsnyder on the trade block

It seems that Rob Refsnyder‘s tenure in pinstripes could be coming to an end.

According to George King of the New York Post, the Yankees are currently listening to offers regarding Refsnyder.

Greg Bird‘s return as the Yankees first baseman and Chris Carter as the backup prevents Refsnyder from playing first base.

Currently, Aaron Judge and Aaron Hicks are competing for the everyday right field job. Brett Gardner and Jacoby Ellsbury have a hold on the other two spots in the outfield.

In 74 games as a Major Leaguer, Refsnyder has a .262 batting average, while he’s a career .293 minor league hitter.

He also has one minor league option remaining.

    Good move for both parties; Yanks can shed excess, Refsnyder gets the opportunity to prove he's a ML.

    there is no place for him here-not sure what they'll get but an A level prospect would be good. He has no defensive position that he excels at and even if he hits 280 he has shown no power or speed in the majors. He might even be a 300 hitter he'll never get the chance here with all the big contracts and higher rated kids blocking him

    I see him being used as backup at 2B, 3B and OF and 1B.
    I see Castro as backup SS and prefer cutting loose Carter for say Mason Williams and trying to trade Hicks.
    I would love to see him get playing time somewhere not with the Yankees then with some team , he has earned a shot in the majors.
