Player Outlook
Miguel Andujar spent the 2023 season in the Pirates organization, though he earned only 90 plate appearances at the big-league level. He'll have a new home in 2024, as he was claimed by the Athletics after being waived in early November. From an opportunity perspective, there's not much of a better landing spot, though Andujar will still need to compete with the likes of Seth Brown, Brent Rooker and JJ Bleday for regular run at corner outfield or DH. Given his lack of playing time in the majors since 2018 - he's never surpassed 162 PA in the last five seasons - it's difficult to get a true gauge of Andujar's potential, though he has consistently possessed a solid hit tool and command of the strike zone. There's not likely to be much power, but given the state of his current club, Andujar is a name worth keeping in mind in the final rounds of AL-only or deep draft-and-hold formats.

  • Athletics' Miguel Andujar: Ramping up activity

    Andujar (knee) has begun playing catch and is expected to begin running and hitting next week, the Associated Press reports. The veteran has been on the injured list since March 29, two days after undergoing right knee lateral meniscus surgery. Given Andujar was initially projected to miss at least the first month of the season, his recovery appears to be on pace thus far.

  • Athletics' Miguel Andujar: Moves to 10-day IL

    The Athletics placed Andujar (knee) on the 10-day injured list Thursday. Andujar is expected to miss at least the first month of the season while he recovers from right knee lateral meniscus surgery, a procedure that entails a 4-to-6 week recovery. Once healthy, Andujar could serve as a short-side platoon player for Oakland at first base, designated hitter or the corner outfield spots.

  • Athletics' Miguel Andujar: Undergoes surgery

    Andujar underwent surgery on his right knee Wednesday, Martin Gallegos of reports. Andujar will return to Oakland later in the week to begin his rehab process. The 29-year-old outfielder suffered a torn meniscus during spring training and was given a return timeline of 4-to-6 weeks. Once healthy, he will likely claim a spot in Oakland's outfield unit.

  • Athletics' Miguel Andujar: Set to undergo surgery

    An MRI revealed that Andujar suffered a torn meniscus in his right knee, and he will undergo surgery March 27, Martin Gallegos of reports. Andujar felt discomfort in his right leg during a Cactus League game last week, and an MRI revealed the bad news Friday. Manager Mark Kotsay said Saturday that the recovery timeline for Andujar is at least 4-to-6 weeks. The 29-year-old was hitting the ball well in spring training, batting .357/.372/.738 with five home runs and 15 RBI over 42 at-bats. The recovery timeline would put an estimated return date near early May for the veteran outfielder.

  • Athletics' Miguel Andujar: Hitless in return to action

    Andujar (calf) slotted into the designated hitter role in a Cactus League loss to the Brewers on Saturday and went 0-for-4. Andujar's return after a one-game absence featured a rare quiet day at the plate for him this spring, but conventional wisdom indicates the veteran is in excellent position to secure a reserve outfielder role on the Opening Day roster. Martin Gallegos of confirms as much in his latest projection of who'll break camp with the Athletics, with Andujar's .361/.378/.722 slash line in Cactus League play making quite the case for his inclusion.

  • Athletics' Miguel Andujar: Returns to action

    Andujar (calf) is starting as Oakland's designated hitter Saturday against the Brewers. Calf issues prevented Andujar from playing Thursday against the Cubs, and he had also been scratched from Friday's lineup before the game was canceled due to rain. However, he seemingly is healthy enough to give it another shot Saturday. Andujar has been one of Oakland's most productive bats this spring, going 13-for-32 with four homers and 13 RBI through 11 games.

  • Athletics' Miguel Andujar: Scratched again Friday

    Andujar (calf) was scratched from Friday's Cactus League lineup against the Giants, Martin Gallegos of reports. The 29-year-old was poised to rejoin the lineup after being scratched from Thursday's lineup due to right calf soreness, but he's apparently not fully past the injury. Andujar has put his best foot forward while trying to earn a roster spot with Oakland during spring training, as he's gone 13-for-32 with four homers through 33 plate appearances.

  • Athletics' Miguel Andujar: Keeps making case Wednesday

    Andujar went 2-for-3 with a three-run home run and a solo shot in a Cactus League win over the Angels on Wednesday. The veteran continued building his increasingly convincing case for an Opening Day roster spot in Oakland's 12-5 win, pushing his Cactus League average to .421 over seven exhibition games. Martin Gallegos of reports Andujar feels his experience in the Dominican Winter League for Tigres de Licey, for which he hit .306 with a .749 OPS, helped him remain sharp at the plate, which is now paying dividends to the extent Andujar is pushing for the Athletics to keep five outfielders in order to carve out a spot for him.

  • Athletics' Miguel Andujar: On early spring tear

    Andujar went 2-for-3 with a run in a Cactus League loss to the Padres on Thursday, pushing his average to .455 over four exhibitions. The reclamation project has hit safely in all four contests, and although he's still in search of his first extra-base hit and base on balls, Andujar has yet to strike out in 11 plate appearances. The 29-year-old looked to be a star on the rise after belting 27 homers as a rookie with the Yankees in 2018, but his career has stalled to the point where he was made available on waivers by the Pirates in November. Despite his recent lack of production, Andujar's ability to fill in at multiple positions and high-contact profile should give him a solid chance of breaking camp with the big-league club if his early spring play persists.

  • Athletics' Miguel Andujar: Signs one-year deal

    Andujar signed a one-year contract with the Athletics on Friday. Andujar was claimed off waivers from Pittsburgh on Monday, and he'll get a chance to revive his career by competing for a spot on what projects to be a relatively weak Athletics roster. Andujar batted .250 (21-for-84) with four homers and 18 RBI in 30 games last season.

  • Athletics' Miguel Andujar: Lands in Oakland

    Oakland claimed Andujar off waivers from Pittsburgh on Monday. Andujar might be far removed from the 27-home run season he submitted as a rookie with the Yankees in 2018, but he's far from over the hill; he'll turn 29 in March. That said, Andujar hasn't proven to be a big-league caliber hitter since that magical rookie year, as he's slashed just .234/.265/.351 (67 wRC+) in 506 plate appearances in the majors between stops with the Yankees and Pirates over the last five seasons. Oakland will at least present Andujar with as good of a landing spot as any to attempt to revive his career, though it may still take a big spring training for him to crack the Opening Day roster.

  • Pirates' Miguel Andujar: Placed on waivers

    Andujar was placed on waivers Thursday, Alex Stumpf of reports. Andujar spent most of the 2023 season at Triple-A Indianapolis, though he was decent across 90 plate appearances in Pittsburgh with a .776 OPS. If he goes unclaimed on waivers, Andjuar will be able to elect free agency.

  • Pirates' Miguel Andujar: Knocks in three runs Thursday

    Andujar went 3-for-4 with a double, three RBI and a stolen base Thursday in an 8-6 victory versus the Cubs. Andujar made the most of his first start in four days, driving in each of Pittsburgh's first three runs. He finished with three hits for the second time in his past seven games. Andujar has been a big contributor for the Pirates since being called up Sept. 1, slashing .368/.400/.632 with two homers, four doubles, 10 RBI, seven runs and two thefts over 12 contests during that span.

  • Pirates' Miguel Andujar: On bench again Wednesday

    Andujar is out of the lineup again Wednesday versus the Cubs. Andujar has contributed some big hits since joining the Pirates as a Sept. 1 call-up, but the 28-year-old former Yankees prospect continues to be used as only a part-time player. Henry Davis will fill the DH role Wednesday as Bryan Reynolds, Jack Suwinski and Josh Palacios start across the outfield.

  • Pirates' Miguel Andujar: Heads to bench Tuesday

    Andujar is absent from the lineup Tuesday versus the Cubs. Andujar boasts a .333/.371/.606 batting line in 35 plate appearances since being called up Sept. 1 from Triple-A Indianapolis, but he has started only two of the Pirates' last six games. Josh Palacios will fill the DH role Tuesday as Bryan Reynolds, Jack Suwinski and Henry Davis canvass the outfield.

  • Pirates' Miguel Andujar: Delivers three hits in win

    Andujar went 3-for-5 with a double, one RBI and one run scored in Saturday's 8-4 win over Atlanta. Andujar has gone 7-for-19 (.368) over six games since he was called up Sept. 1. He's now batting .240 over 52 plate appearances this season while tallying three home runs, 11 RBI, five runs scored and three doubles. He may not have an everyday role, but he should frequently be in the lineup versus left-handers.

  • Pirates' Miguel Andujar: Hits first homer since call-up

    Andujar went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and one run scored in Sunday's 6-4 loss against St. Louis. Andujar made his second consecutive start since being called up from Triple-A Indianapolis and delivered two hits, including a solo shot in the second. Following a 2018 campaign in New York that saw him hit 27 homers, the former top Yankee farmhand has bounced between the majors and minors over much of the past five years with both the Yankees and Pirates. The 28-year-old hit .338 with 16 homers over 103 games for Indianapolis and will look to use the final few weeks of the season as a springboard towards a future permanent big-league role.

  • Pirates' Miguel Andujar: Outrighted to Triple-A

    Andujar cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Indianapolis by the Pirates on Tuesday. Andujar is no longer on the 40-man roster but will remain in the organization. The 28-year-old has a .635 OPS over 22 games with the Pirates dating back to last season.

  • Pirates' Miguel Andujar: Designated for assignment

    Andujar was designated for assignment by the Pirates on Friday. Andujar slashed just .161/.212/.387 over his 13 games (33 plate appearances) with Pittsburgh. The 28-year-old former Yankees prospect heads into DFA limbo with a rough .621 OPS spanning his last 400 major-league plate appearances.

  • Pirates' Miguel Andujar: Returns to bench

    Andujar is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Rockies. After starting each of the Pirates' past three games in right field, Andujar will head to the bench while Andrew McCutchen (ankle) makes his return to the lineup. Andujar went just 1-for-12 with a double during his three-game run as a starter and should see sporadic playing time moving forward.
