Sonoran Hot Reads: Robert Refsnyder gets first taste of third base

Another position change for the former Arizona outfielder?

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Last year, Robert Refsnyder made his MLB debut, but not at the position Arizona fans were accustomed to see him playing. Refsnyder had been converted to a second baseman in the Yankees organization, but now he's learning a new position. On Sunday, he played his first game at third base in an effort to try and make the team's Opening Day roster. "I felt good, comfortable," Refsnyder said after the game. "My goal was to kind of be aggressive, try to make a lot of plays, do a lot of different things on both sides of the ball. I just want to be aggressive."
