After Billy McKinney suffered an injury on April 1, Andujar was promoted to the major leagues from Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. On April 17, he hit his first home run in the major league.
Andujar’s solo home run on April 23 against the Minnesota Twins was his seventh extra-base hit in a row.
The only Yankees to have had 7 straight games with an extra-base hit under the age of 24 were Andujar, Joe DiMaggio, and Mickey Mantle.
On May 4, Andujar secured a 7-6 victory over the Cleveland Indians by hitting his first walk-off RBI single of the season.
He hit his first major league grand slam on June 5. On September 29, Andujar hit his 45th double of the year, shattering Joe DiMaggio’s previous record for the most doubles by a rookie for the Yankees.
He batted .297/.328/.527 for the Yankees, seeing the fewest fastballs of any MLB hitters (46.0 percent ). In the voting for the Rookie of the Year Award, he came in second place to Shohei Ohtani.
Andujar was placed on the 10-day injury list on April 1 of this year due to a strained right shoulder. Despite being given a partial glenoid labrum tear diagnosis, he opted to rehab the condition rather than have surgery.
On May 4, the Yankees made him active. Before being put back on the injured list on May 13, he had a 3-for-34 batting average.
Andujar was declared out for the remainder of 2019 on May 15 after admitting he need surgery on his right shoulder.
