Is Miguel Andujar Still on the Yankees?
Yes. Miguel Andujar is still with the Yankees.
As an international free agent, Andujar signed with the New York Yankees in July of 2011. It was with the Gulf Coast Yankees that he made his major league debut in 2012.
In 2013, he played for the Gulf Coast Yankees 2 of the Class A South Atlantic League, and in 2014, he played for the Charleston RiverDogs of the same league.
Andujar was a Class A Advanced Florida State League baseball player in 2015. He began the year with the Tampa Bay Rays before being promoted to the Class AA Eastern League Trenton Thunder.
He participated in the Arizona Fall League following the 2016 season. After the season, the Yankees put him on their 40-man roster.
Through 67 games, Andujar batted.312 with seven home runs and 52 RBIs, good for first place in the Eastern League. He began the 2017 season with Trenton.
Gleyber Torres was promoted to the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders of the Class AAA International League following a season-ending injury in June.
On June 28, the Yankees elevated Andujar from the RailRiders to the main leagues when Matt Holliday was placed on the disabled list.
As the Yankees’ designated hitter, he broke the Yankees’ record for the most RBIs in a player’s first game, going 3-for-4 with four RBIs and a walk against the Chicago White Sox.
The Yankees sent him back to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre the following day so he could play every game at third base for the rest of the season.
On September 16, the Yankees promoted Andujar from the RailRiders, where he had a.317 batting average with nine home runs and 30 RBIs in 58 games.
