Fresh off the heels of his 13th place ranking in yesterday's Double-A Eastern League list, Rob Refsnyder became a 2-time member of Baseball America's league-by-league top 20 rankings today when he was named to the list for the Triple-A International League. Coincidentally, he came in at number 13 on this list as well, joining Aaron Judge as the only Yankee prospects to appear on multiple lists.
Refsnyder hit .300/.389/.456 with 28 XBH and 47 R scored in 77 games for the SWB RailRiders (333 PA). That, paired with his results from Double-A, gave Refsnyder a .318/.387/.497 slash line for the full season. That's very impressive when you remember that he didn't hit for that kind of average or nearly that kind of power in 117 games at the High-A level last year. He may be a work in progress defensively at second base, but Refsnyder has proven beyond a doubt that he can handle the stick at any level of the Minors and that's why he'll be knocking on the Major League door come next spring.
