miggy has been playing winter ball in the DR and reports have not been good:


In just eight games with Toros del Este, the infielder/corner outfielder has slashed .161/.182/.161 with a .343 OPS. He has two RBI, six strikeouts and one walk in 31 at-bats. That isn’t really a compelling case for the Yankees, who did offer him a contract while non-tendering Tyler Wade and Clint Frazier last month. Andujar is in his first winter of salary arbitration, which means he is likely to go past the $1 million mark this year.


“He really looked lost at the plate when I saw him,” one scout who saw Andujar last season said. “He has a long, big and violent swing. He always has, which is why he goes through streaks of hot and cold. When he is on, he has raw power and is working the whole field. He has good speed, so he can take line drives and get doubles.


“But he hasn’t had one of those really good stretches since he got hurt,” the scout said. “He’s a guy I would say you’d take in a trade hoping a change of scenery and maybe some different voices would get him back on track.”

Obviously no place on the Yanks for him. Try to move him to a team in need of a 1B.

the big question is where did his bat go. and it now seems like a mistake to have kept him and non-tendered wade.

I didn't agree with the Wade move, and I wouldn't be at all surprised if he wins the starting SS job in Anaheim. Re Andujar's offense, he could be pressing due to the uncertainty. Maybe as the scout said..."a change of scenery and maybe some different voices would get him back on track”.

Jeezuz... It's 8 games.


I'm pretty sure that every Yankee on the roster went through an 8 game stretch equally as bad during the regular season  


For reference


Joey Gallo batted .160 in 58 games , Higgy batted .181 in 70 games, Stanton batted .150 through his 1st 15 games

If he was batting .400 everyone would say yeah but it's only 8 games
