Former Top Yankees' Prospect Having Career Season With Red Sox

In 2012 Rob Refsnyder was selected in the 5th round of the MLB Draft by the New York Yankees. The College World Series MVP would quickly skyrocket to the top of many Yankees fans’ lists, but things would change once he got to the majors.

Being a top five prospect within New York’s farm system, Refsnyder would make his debut on July 11th, 2015, against the Boston Red Sox. Now, eight years later he calls Boston home and is playing some of the best baseball of his career.

While with New York he would play in 94 games across a three year span, batting a low .241 with only 17 RBIs. He would later be traded to divisional rivals, the Toronto Blue Jays.

Fast forward to the present: 2023 has featured splits of .257 / .396 / .349 / .744 with a positive 0.5 WAR. Currently in the middle of his second season with Boston, the outfield arm of Refsnyder has been near perfect with a fielding percentage above .970%, which is complimented by his .286 batting average in 106 games played.
