BOSTON - Yankees fans who have been clamoring to see Rob Refsnyder the last two years apparently will get their wish. With the Red Sox scheduled to throw lefty starters Saturday and Sunday, the righthanded-hitting second baseman -- the club's top infield prospect -- will be called up Saturday morning, according to the YES Network.
Refsnyder, 24, impressed scouts throughout spring training with his bat but not so much with his glove, and his minor-league season has played out as such.
Refsnyder entered Friday with a .290/.387/.413 slash line, seven homers and 37 RBIs in 81 games. He was 14-for-34 in his last 10 games, including three straight multi-hit games.
He also had a team-high 13 errors, though he's committed only two of those since May 23.
He was selected by the Yankees in the fifth round of the 2012 draft out of the University of Arizona.
