Miguel Andujar Wields Potential Impact Bat

Yankees Final Report

Best Player: 3B Miguel Andujar

The 22-year-old third baseman played well enough at Double-A Trenton to be promoted to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in mid-June, and he hit .315/.352/.498 with 16 home runs and 82 RBIs in 125 games at the two levels.

“He is an impact offensive player and a very athletic player,” general manager Brian Cashman said of Andujar, who raised questions about his defense in spring training but, according to scouts who followed him this season, that aspect has improved tremendously.

Asked if the 6-foot, 215-pound Andujar could force his way into the big leagues next year, Cashman said, “A spot for him remains to be seen.” That’s because the Yankees owe Chase Headley $13 million for next season.
