The New York Yankees have reportedly called up left-hander James Pazos and Rob Refsnyder from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.The Scranton shuttle is apparently traveling long distances as the New York Yankees have called up Rob Refsnyder and James Pazos from the minor leagues according to Baseball America News Editor, Josh Norris.
Pazos seems like a move that makes sense as he is well rested and could provide the Yankees with some length out of the bullpen and even a spot start.
In 12 games at Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, he had a record of 2-1 with an ERA 2.35 with 17 strikeouts in 15.1 innings of work.
A for Refsnyder, he could provide a solid amount of depth as he can play second base, right field, and third base. But besides that, he gives the Yankees a complete bench which is something this team has lacked all season. If I had to make a prediction, Refsnyder goes right back down once Alex Rodriguez returns from the disabled list on Thursday.
Refsnyder has a .293/.336/.398 slash line with two home runs in 34 games with the Railriders and had a 16-game hitting streak that ended on May 13. However, he has been maintaining a .400 batting average in the month of May.
There has yet to be official note as to who will be sent down but last night’s losing pitcher, Chad Green, makes sense as does Conor Mullee or maybe even Phil Coke who pitched two innings in last night’s 12-2 loss in Arizona.
