Arizona Wildcats outfielder Robert Refsnyder is headed to the Major League, signing a contract to play for the New York Yankees.

With the signing, Refsnyder is no longer college eligible after three seasons.

The deal is reported to be worth $205,900.

The Yankees picked up Refsnyder with their fifth-round pick in the amateur draft.

He is the fourth UA draftee to sign: shortstop Alex Mejia, third baseman Seth Mejias-Brean and outfielder Joey Rickard.

Refsynder hit .364 as a junior with a team-high eight home runs and 64 RBIs; he was named College World Series MVP.
