Boston, MA (KOLD) - Former Wildcat Rob Refsnyder will make his major league debut for the Yankees when New York takes on Boston Saturday.
Manager Joe Girardi confirmed the move to reporters following New York's 5-1 win over the Red Sox Friday.
As Jason Evans of website Yanks Go Yard notes, Refsnyder, has hit .410 in his last 10 games including 10 home runs. He has also walked 10 times. His only crutch has been his defense. Refsnyder played outfield with Arizona but was moved to the infield when he signed with the Yankees. So far this season, he's committed 13 errors while manning second base for New York's triple A squad Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
It wasn't too long ago that Refsnyder was named the College World Series MVP after helping Arizona win its fourth national championship. Refsnyder was drafted by the Yankees in the 4th round of the 2012 MLB draft. Both Yankee and Wildcat fans have been waiting to see when he'd get his shot. Now that his time has come, we're all eager to see how long it will last.
