Miguel Enrique Andujar, a professional baseball third baseman and left fielder for the New York Yankees of Major League Baseball, was born in the Dominican Republic on March 2, 1995. He debuted in the MLB in 2017.
On June 28, when Matt Holliday, the Yankees designated hitter, was placed on the disabled list, the Yankees promoted Andujar to the major leagues after he had appeared in seven games with the RailRiders.
As the Yankees’ designated hitter that day against the Chicago White Sox, he made his major league debut, breaking the club mark for most RBIs in a player’s debut game by going 3-for-4 with four RBIs and a walk.
The Yankees moved him back down to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre the next day so he could continue to play third base in each game.
The Yankees promoted Andujar to the major leagues on September 16 following the conclusion of the RailRiders’ season, where he had batted.317 with nine home runs and 30 RBIs in 58 games.
Did The Yankees Trade Andujar?
No, The Yankees did not trade Andujar. On March 22, 2022, Andujar signed a contract with the Yankees worth $1.3 million, thereby eliminating the possibility of salary arbitration. He started the year off with the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees.
Even while New York is not required to trade Andujar, the team has reportedly made every effort to do so, according to Jon Heyman of the New York Post. He hasn’t been dealt yet because, according to Heyman, the offers the Yankees have been getting “haven’t been good enough.”
