SP. Dietrich Enns: 6 IP, 4 H, 1 R/ER, 2 BB, 6 K, HBP, 7-3 GO-FO, 95 p, 61 s

  • These are Refsnyder's first two homers of the season and the date is May 15. Last season Refsnyder hit his first two homers of the season in the same game on ... May 17. So close. As for these homers, and his overall day at the plate, Refsnyder's batting line is up to .284/.329/.400. His ISO jumped from .055 to .116, so I guess that's good, but overall Refsnyder just hasn't done enough to warrant a full-time spot on the big league roster now and possibly ever. With the current Yankee infield set, to go along with Ronald Torreyes, who may be a keeper as a utility player, plus with Tyler Wade and Jorge Mateo in Double-A/approaching Double-A, it is hard to find a spot for Refsnyder in this org other than an up-and-down utility player.
  • Nice first start for Enns in his Triple-A debut. He did come up following the injury to Luis Severino, thus resulting in all of the bullpen shuffling at the big league level, but it makes sense to keep him in SWB after he dominated in Trenton. A lefty who sits in the high 80's/low-90's with a good slider and a semblance of command is valuable and there could be a chance he makes his way to the Bronx as soon as later this summer.
