During game two of the New York Yankees doubleheader against the Baltimore Orioles, it was announced that Miguel Andujar will undergo season ending surgery on his right shoulder labrum. The surgery will be performed by Dr. Christopher Ahmad of New York-Presbyterian Hospital on Monday.
Andujar, bat .128 over 47 at-bats and drove in just one run in 2019. He only had three hits since he was previously activated from the IL on May 4th.
The Yankees will be able to recover from the blow. Gio Urshela and DJ LeMahieu have had spectacular seasons thus far and provide way better defense than Andujar. If they keep playing like they have been, it will be hard to notice that Andujar is out of the lineup.
Best wishes to the young fella, and we hope to see you on the field soon.
