Yankees DFA Miguel Andujar

Remember when the Yankees refused to include Miguel Andujar in a trade for Gerrit Cole? Then he went to Houston and helped the Astros beat you? Then the Yankees paid an arm and a leg to get Cole to realize their earlier mistake but overpaying in order to do so? Fun times!

Those times just got even better after the Yankees officially gave up on the Miguel Andujar rollercoaster. New York has DFA’d Andujar. It remains to be seen what will happen next but it’s pretty likely another team claims him before the Yankees have the right to send him down to AAA.

The Yankees team account reported the news. The move was to clear a 40 man roster spot for Zack Britton’s return:

I’m not sure the Yankees would have made this move if Wandy Peralta didn’t get hurt. I think ideally they wanted to wait a few days in order to save Andujar. Instead, Britton is back sooner than expected and needed to be placed back on the 40 man. Andujar simply had to go in order to make room.

Andujar, 27, has a career batting line of .273/.303/.449. Once upon a time, Andujar was a decorated prospect. In fairness to Andujar, he’s never had an extended opportunity on the big league roster. He’s likely to get one here soon after someone claims him. That’s going to happen for some bad team around the league.

Why do no teams try to call me to be a consultant? I have no idea. Should have cashed the chips in.

It’s the end of an era. Remember when Yankee fans tried to argue that Andujar was better than Rafael Devers? Fun times!
