Andujar is starting at third base and hitting cleanup Saturday against the Twins.
He was activated from the 10-day injured list prior to this game after successfully rehabbing a torn right labrum. It is noteworthy that the Yankees are not easing Andujar back as the designated hitter, but instead putting him at third base right out of the gate. Andujar went 3-for-10 with a home run in three rehab games with High-A Tampa earlier this week.
Andujar (shoulder) was activated from the 10-day injured list prior to Saturday's game against the Twins, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.
The Yankees' third baseman opted to forgo surgery on his torn labrum, and has successfully ramped up his throwing to the point that he is ready to return for the big club. Andujar went 3-for-10 with a home run in three rehab games with High-A Tampa earlier this week. He will be New York's top option at the hot corner, but it would not be surprising if he gets the occassional day off in an effort to protect his shoulder. Mike Ford was optioned to Triple-A in a corresponding move.
Andujar (shoulder) will be activated off the 10-day injured list Saturday, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.
Andujar rejoined the team in New York on Friday, though he'll have to wait a day before returning to the active roster. According to Bryan Hoch of MLB.com, manager Aaron Boone plans to ease the 24-year-old back into action by using him regularly as the designated hitter after missing a month with the shoulder injury.
Andujar (shoulder) was seen traveling from Tampa to Newark, N.J., on Friday morning, Justin Granit of News10 CBS Tampa reports.
At one point, it appeared Andujar was done for the season as a result of the shoulder injury, but he now appears primed to be activated this weekend after missing just over a month. Andujar was able to successfully ramp up his throwing, and he homered in his third rehab game with Tampa on Thursday, paving the way for a return to the Bronx. Andujar should take back over as the top third baseman right away, though the team may take it easy with him and give Andujar a couple days off per week for the time being to prevent against a setback.
Andujar (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Tampa on Tuesday, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.
Andujar appears to have dodged the Yankees' worst fears and could be back on a big-league diamond within a week after season-ending surgery previously appeared possible. The team will want to see how he responds in minor-league action before setting an official target return date.
