George A. King III of the New York Post reports that the Yankees have informed other teams that they are willing to listen to trade offers for utilityman Rob Refsnyder.

Refsnyder, soon 26 years old, doesn’t have a fixed role on the team. As a result, he played first base, second base, third base, and both outfield corners last season. He hit .250/.328/.309 with nine doubles and 12 RBI in 175 plate appearances last season.

Refsnyder will be eligible for arbitration for the first time in 2019, so an interested team would have a cheap, versatile player for a handful of seasons. As King notes, Refsnyder also has one minor league option remaining as well.
