Yankees DFA 6-Year Veteran

It's been another disappointing season in Pinstripes for former Rookie Of The Year runner-up Miguel Andujar. It now appears that his 6-year run in the New York Yankees organization is coming to an end. 

Andujar's promising career got off to an exciting start in the Bronx, when he batted .297 with an .855 OPS in 2018, along with 27 HR and 92 RBIs. He finished second only to Shohei Ohtani for AL Rookie Of The Year that season, and he looked like the Yankees' third baseman of the future. 

But torn shoulder cartilage knocked him out for practically the entire 2019 season, and he's never recovered his major league form since then.  

Andujar was hitting just .229 in 100 plate appearances this season with New York, with a .531 OPS and just one home run. 

With the activation of Harrison Bader, there was simply no place in the outfield for Andujar any longer. Certainly not if his bat isn't performing. The speed of Tim Locastro serves a better purpose coming off the bench for the team at this point.

In parts of six seasons in Pinstripes, Andujar has a .273 average, a .752 OPS, along with 35 home runs (27 of them in that breakout rookie season).
