A shoulder injury in the third game of the season sidelined 2018 Rookie of the Year runner-up Miguel Andujar for 28 games. The Yankees incumbent third baseman avoided surgery, but is it possible he's losing his grip on his stature as a consequence?
Despite suffering a bruised knee Wednesday that might keep him out a couple of days, Gio Urshela is likely to man third base on a regular basis. Yankees manager Aaron Boone suggested that his lineup strategy, based on his active 25-man roster, would have Urshela primarily playing third base and Andujar at designated hitter.
Long term, if Urshela maintains his upward trend and Andujar continues to struggle, the Yankees might have a decision to make before long. That could include what to do with the latter's tenure with the Yankees.
