Andujar is not starting Monday against the Rangers, Erik Boland of Newsday reports. The young third baseman has impressed everywhere besides the walk department so far this year, hitting .286/.296/.483 through 152 plate appearances. He has more homers (four) than walks (three). Neil Walker will start at third base for the first time this year in his absence.
Andujar went 3-for-5 with a solo home run, a triple and two runs scored Sunday against the Royals. Andujar hit his fourth home run of the season in the ninth inning, adding an exclamation point to the Yankees' offensive surge Sunday. It was his first home run since April 23 and improved his otherwise abysmal month of May, as he is now hitting just .254/.262/.271 in 59 at-bats for the month.
Andujar went 3-for-5 with a double and an RBI in Saturday's 11-1 win over the Angels. His 12th double marked his 16th extra-base hit since his promotion, fueling Andujar's impressive .312/.325/.610 slash line. The rookie continues to hit near the bottom of the order, but given how much damage the entire Yankees offense is doing at the moment, that still affords him plenty of run-producing opportunities. Andujar has three homers, 12 RBI and 10 runs scored in 19 games.
Andujar went 4-for-4 with one RBI and a run scored in Sunday's victory over the Blue Jays. This marked Andujar's second consecutive multi-hit effort and his fifth over his last six games. His batting average has now climbed up to .308 after playing in 13 games this season, over which the 23-year-old has scored eight runs and recorded 10 RBI. Although Gleyber Torres joined the big club Sunday, Andujar should still see plenty of playing time at the hot corner, as Torres is expected to be used at second base.
Andujar went 2-for-4 with a run and three RBI in a victory over the Blue Jays on Saturday. After starting the year with just three hits in his first 28 at-bats, Andujar is starting to heat up. He now has nine hits in his last five games, improving his OPS to .796. With Gleyber Torres set to join the Yankees on Sunday, the playing-time situation in New York is about to get murkier, but Andujar is hitting well enough to earn a fair share of at-bats.
