Yankees player robbed at gun-point in the Dominican Republic

New York Yankees, Miguel Andujar

While the New York Yankees are gearing up for free agency and potential trade opportunities, their players are making their way to Florida to begin spring training before the regular season begins in early April.

However, with baseball finally coming back and positivity flowing throughout the sport, Miguel Andujar had a bit of a scare in the Dominican Republic on Wednesday this week.

Per ESPN Deportes, Andujar was robbed at gun-point with three bullets fired, none of which struck him, luckily.

The four-year veteran evaded the bullets but was beaten up by the assailants, who stole several expensive items. A watch worth $7,000 was stolen, in addition to an SUV that belonged to Andujar’s father.

Despite all that went down, Andujar is expected to arrive in Tampa for spring training, likely a bit shaken up from the entire situation.
