Yankees' Miguel Andujar: Feeling '100 percent'
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andujar has been working out at the Yankees' complex in Florida five days a week and has had no trouble with his surgically repaired right shoulder, George A. King III of the New York Post reports.

"I feel great. I am working out five days a week building strength, working with the trainers, exercising and doing my best to stay sharp,'' Andujar indicated in an email. "I feel 100 percent. I am very happy where I am at physically." Andujar also explained that he had been working out with a trainer away from the Yankees' training complex during part of the MLB hiatus but has since returned to Steinbrenner Field. The 25-year-old is expected to see playing time as a designated hitter, left fielder and third baseman during a potential 2020 campaign, though he is unlikely to open the season with an everyday role.

Yankees' Miguel Andujar: Confined to LF, 3B
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andujar will be an option at third base, left field and designated hitter when the season gets underway, although it is unclear how regularly he will play, Pete Caldera of reports.

A brief experiment at first base in spring training did not bear fruit, with Caldera noting that the team was much more optimistic about how he fared in left field. Andujar will get semi-regular starts at all three spots (left, third, DH), but with Aaron Hicks (elbow) ramping up baseball activities and Aaron Judge (rib) also getting close to ramping up, the Yankees could potentially have 11 starting caliber position players for nine spots, so he probably won't be a true everyday player.

Yankees' Miguel Andujar: To get work in both corner OF spots
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andujar will play in both right field and left field over the next few days, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Andujar has been getting reps in left field throughout spring, and it appears that the Yankees now want to see how he fares on the other side of the outfield. With Giancarlo Stanton (calf) and Aaron Judge (rib) sidelined for the start of the campaign, Andujar's surest path to early-season playing time appears to be DH and in the corner outfield spots.

Yankees' Miguel Andujar: Shaky debut at first base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andujar played first base and committed a third-inning error in Thursday's Grapefruit League contest against Detroit.

The miscue was a blatant drop on a good throw from third baseman Gio Urshela. Andujar is clearly still getting adjusted to the position, though he is expected to spend most of the remainder of the spring working at third base and left field, per Randy Miller of With Giancarlo Stanton (calf) and Aaron Judge (rib) out for the foreseeable future, Andujar's best path to playing time is in the outfield.

Yankees' Miguel Andujar: Path to playing time opens
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andujar is expected to begin the season in an everyday role either at designated hitter or in left field after Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Tuesday that both Aaron Judge (pectoral) and Giancarlo Stanton (calf) are unlikely to be ready for Opening Day, Bryan Hoch of reports.

Though Andujar reported to camp healthy after missing most of the prior campaign due to a torn labrum in his right shoulder, the 2018 AL Rookie of the Year runner-up initially looked like he might have to settle for a part-time role with the Yankees having since committed to Gio Urshela as their primary third baseman. While Andujar remains blocked at the hot corner, the injuries to the two sluggers will temporarily open up regular at-bats for him. Andujar has been taking reps in left field this spring in an attempt to increase his avenues to playing time, but because he's still likely to be a negative defender at that position, expect the Yankees to hand him most of his starts at DH at least until one of Judge or Stanton returns. Mike Tauchman, Brett Gardner and Clint Frazier should serve as the Yankees' primary outfielders at the beginning of the season.

Yankees' Miguel Andujar: Plays left field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andujar saw his first game action in left field during Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Nationals and made it through the game without any errors, Bryan Hoch of reports. He also went 1-for-3 with a double.

Andujar's trial in the outfield takes on a greater bit of urgency now that Giancarlo Stanton is at risk of missing Opening Day and beyond with a calf injury. Andujar could split time in left field with Mike Tauchman, or he could just slide in designated hitter while Stanton is out.

Yankees' Miguel Andujar: Homers in spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andujar went 1-for-3 with a home run in his first game of spring training Sunday, Bryan Hoch of reports.

Andujar appeared in his first game since May 12, 2019, and blasted a home run in his third at-bat. He also played four innings at third base, a cause for optimism regarding the health of his shoulder. Andujar's role is uncertain heading into the season thanks to the emergence of Gio Urshela -- the projected starting third baseman -- though Andujar is also set to get work in left field and first base this spring.

Yankees' Miguel Andujar: 'No limitations' with shoulder
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andujar (shoulder) said Tuesday he has "no limitations" for spring training, Ken Davidoff of the New York Post reports.

Andujar is back to full strength after he was on the shelf for most of the 2019 season due to May surgery to address a torn labrum in his right shoulder. Once he completed his rehab process for the injury in December, Andujar turned his focus to working out at first base and left field, two positions (in addition to third base) where he's expected to see reps this spring as he attempts to find at-bats in a crowded Yankees lineup. Despite only being two years removed from an age-23 campaign in which he batted .297 and provided 27 homers, Andujar could be forced to settle for a part-time role when the Yankees have all their key position players available.

Yankees' Miguel Andujar: Learning new positions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andujar (shoulder) will learn first base and left field this spring, Randy Miller of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Andujar missed nearly the entirety of the 2019 season due to a shoulder injury which eventually required surgery. In the meantime, Gio Urshela emerged from obscurity to hit .314/.355/.534 as the team's primary third baseman. Andujar's .297/.328/.527 line from 2018 wasn't far off that mark, but it came with far worse defense than Urshela provided, so he'll enter the season second on the depth chart and will have to pick up at-bats at other positions if he's to play a significant role.

Yankees' Miguel Andujar: Resumes throwing, fielding
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Aaron Boone said Tuesday that Andujar (shoulder) has been throwing and taking ground balls while training in the Dominican Republic during the offseason, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.

Boone reiterated that the Yankees expect Andujar to be fully healthy for spring training after the 24-year-old appeared in just 12 games in the majors in 2019 before undergoing season-ending right shoulder surgery in late May. While Andujar's name has popped up frequently in trade rumors during the winter, the Yankees may be reticent to move him while his value has been suppressed by the injury. Assuming he's ready to go for the spring, Andujar will compete for a full-time role at either third base or designated hitter.

Yankees' Miguel Andujar: Making progress
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andujar (shoulder) is making good progress and is expected to be ready for spring training, Dan Martin of the New York Post reports.

A shoulder injury which eventually required surgery limited Andujar to 12 ineffective games last season. In his absence, Gio Urshela emerged to place a strong claim on the third base job. Andujar's bat is too good to waste, assuming he can get back to pre-injury form, so the Yankees will likely either trade him or try to find a way to give him regular at-bats.

Yankees' Miguel Andujar: To resume throwing Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andujar (shoulder) will resume throwing Monday, Bryan Hoch of reports.

Reports from just over a month ago suggested that Andujar was about a month from throwing, and at appears that he's more or less right on schedule. The Yankees have no plans to rush him back for the year, though, as he underwent season-ending shoulder surgery back in May. The fact that he'll be throwing over five months before spring training games begin would seem to bode well for his readiness for next season.

Yankees' Miguel Andujar: Month away from throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andujar (shoulder) expects to resume throwing in about a month, Jack Curry of YES Network reports.

Andujar's sophomore season wound up being a completely lost one, as he hit just .128 in 12 games before being shut down for season-ending shoulder surgery in mid-May. He believes he'll be ready for the start of spring training.

Yankees' Miguel Andujar: Transferred to 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andujar (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Tuesday.

The move is purely procedural, as Andujar had already been ruled out for the season following shoulder surgery. It clears up a spot on the 40-man roster for the Yankees to select David Hale's contract. Andujar is expected to be back in action in spring training.

Yankees' Miguel Andujar: Could be ready for spring training
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

After undergoing season-ending shoulder surgery Monday, Andujar is expected to begin some baseball activities later in the year, and he should be ready for spring training, Bryan Hoch of reports.

Andujar's surgery went as expected, and even though he's been ruled out for the rest of the 2019 campaign, it's good to hear that he'll be able to begin some activities later in the year.

Yankees' Miguel Andujar: Undergoes season-ending surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andujar (shoulder) underwent season-ending surgery Monday, Meredith Marakovits of YES Network reports.

This was expected. Andujar will now begin a long recovery process that will keep him sidelined through the remainder of the 2019 campaign. In his absence, Gio Urshela should continue to fill in at the hot corner.

Yankees' Miguel Andujar: Elects season-ending surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andujar has opted to get season-ending surgery on his right shoulder, Bryan Hoch of reports.

Andujar had been mulling over whether to surgically repair the torn right labrum that has troubled him all season, and the 24-year-old has decided he will get surgery that will end his 2019 campaign. Gio Urshela had been the starter at third base in Andujar's absence and should continue to serve as the primary option at the hot corner.

Yankees' Miguel Andujar: Decision on surgery coming soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andujar underwent another MRI on Tuesday and it was nearly identical to his previous imaging results. He'll likely make a decision on whether to undergo surgery within the next 24 hours, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

Andujar's MRI showed that the small labrum tear in his throwing shoulder is still present, though the rest of his shoulder looked structurally sound.

Yankees' Miguel Andujar: Surgery remains possibility
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Aaron Boone acknowledged that Andujar (shoulder) could require season-ending surgery after the third baseman was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports. "We'll see," Boone said, regarding Andujar's potential need for surgery. "He's got a couple of opinions going into this and both [did not suggest] surgery, so I think we'll look at this again as far as reimaging, re-evaluating. So I wouldn't say [surgery] is necessarily off the table, but I wouldn't say even more so that it's on now. It's just we've got to get a better handle on this and then probably just get him built up in the best way possible if we can move forward with that."

Andujar was shut down after his initial efforts to come back from the torn labrum in his right shoulder proved unsuccessful. After treating the injury through rest and rehab for nearly a month, Andujar was reinstated to the roster earlier in May but recorded only three hits in 34 at-bats upon returning. Andujar's struggles with driving the ball this season are evident in his 37.8 percent soft-contact rate, which sits well above the 19.4 percent rate he posted during his breakout 2018 campaign. The shoulder issue also presents problems on the defensive end and may provide further incentive for the Yankees to keep him on the shelf for an extended period to regain strength even if surgery isn't deemed necessary. As Boone mentioned, the Yankees will field more medical opinions on Andujar's shoulder in the coming days, with a timeline for the 24-year-old's return likely to come once the organization has gleaned sufficient information.

Yankees' Miguel Andujar: Sent to IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andujar (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday.

This was expected. Andujar is apparently still dealing with some shoulder issues, which the Yankees believe contributed to his struggles at the dish since returning from the injured list earlier in the month (3-for-34 during that stretch). The third baseman will undergo further testing in the coming days, after which a timetable for his return will hopefully come into focus. Nestor Cortes was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in a corresponding move.
