With questions surrounding the New York Yankees’ options at second base, the team is “leaning toward” a platoon with Dustin Ackley and Rob Refsnyder in 2016, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports writes.
Both Ackley and Refsnyder are young, cost-controlled options at the keystone for the Yankees. Also, considering how Stephen Drew’s season at the plate went, his stint in New York is likely over.
Signing a one-year, $5 million contract prior to 2015, Drew ended up getting the lion’s share of time at second base. However, the left-handed Drew struggled offensively for most of the season.
