Born in South Korea, Refsnyder went to Laguna Hills (Calif.) High, where he was teammates with Royals lefthander John Lamb. Refsnyder bats and throws righthanded and has a 6-foot, 200-pound frame. Scouts like his bat and think he could be an average hitter. He's always hitting--he holds his high school record for the highest career batting average and is a career .341 hitter over his three years with the Wildcats. The problem scouts have is that Refsnyder just doesn't profile as a corner outfielder in pro ball because he has a flat swing that's geared more for doubles than home runs. He's an average runner with an average arm, so scouts who like the bat are interested in getting Refsnyder to move back to second base, a position he played in high school.
