  • Pirates' Miguel Andujar: Avoids arbitration

    Andujar agreed to a one-year, $1.525 million contract with the Pirates on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.

    Andujar will be looking to revive his career in Pittsburgh after fizzling out with the Yankees. He burst onto the scene and finished as the runner up for AL Rookie of the Year in 2018 (behind Shohei Ohtani), but Andujar went on to post a .581 OPS over the subsequent four seasons. He projects as the Pirates' primary designated hitter at this stage in the offseason.

  • Pirates' Miguel Andujar: Three hits in season finale

    Andujar went 3-for-4 with a triple and a run scored in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Cardinals.

    Andujar singled in his first at-bat in the second inning before ripping a triple off Matthew Liberatore in the bottom of the fourth inning, later coming around to score. He added another base knock in the following frame. The multi-hit effort was his second in the last seven games. Andujar will finish the 2022 campaign with a .235 average, one home run, 17 RBI, 13 runs and four stolen bases over 132 at-bats in 36 games with the Yankees and Pirates.

  • Pirates' Miguel Andujar: Drives in two

    Andujar went 1-for-5 with a double, a run scored and two RBI on Tuesday against the Cardinals.

    Andujar tallied an RBI double in the third inning after driving in a run on a fielder's choice two frames earlier. In eight games with the Pirates, Andujar has hit just .188. However, he has struck out at only a 13.9 percent clip and has also tallied nine RBI and three runs scored.

  • Pirates' Miguel Andujar: Drives in winning runs

    Andujar went 1-for-4 with a double and three RBI on Tuesday against the Reds.

    Andujar made his lone hit of the contest count, as he cleared the bases with a double in the seventh inning to drive in the game-winning runs. Andujar has served as the designated hitter in both of his games since being claimed off waivers by the Pirates, and he's hit third and fifth in the order. He should continue to get plenty of plate appearances as the regular season winds down, and he already has four RBI with his new club.

  • Pirates' Miguel Andujar: Strong debut with Bucs

    Andujar went 1-for-3 with a walk, an RBI and a run scored Monday against the Reds.

    Andujar hit third and served as the designated hitter in his debut with the Pirates. He reached base on a single in the seventh inning and came around to score on a Jack Suwinski double, and also tallied an RBI on a sacrifice fly one frame later. Andujar figures to serve a prominent role in the Pirates' lineup across the final week of the season while auditioning for a potential role with the club in 2023.

  • Pirates' Miguel Andujar: Claimed by Pittsburgh

    Andujar was claimed off waivers by the Pirates on Sunday.

    Andujar was designated for assignment by the Yankees on Thursday and will land a spot on the Pirates' 40-man roster a few days later. The 27-year-old has played 70 games at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this year, slashing .287/.332/.491 with 13 homers, 51 RBI, 42 runs and five stolen bases. It's not yet clear whether he'll join the Pirates' active roster for the final week and a half of the regular season.

  • Pirates' Miguel Andujar: Activated, debuting at DH for Bucs

    The Pirates activated Andujar ahead of Monday's game against the Reds. He'll serve as the Pirates' designated hitter and No. 3 batter in the series opener.

    Andujar will immediately report to the big-league club after the Pirates claimed him off waivers from the Yankees over the weekend. Since slugging 27 home runs in the 2018 season to finish second behind Shohei Ohtani in the American League Rookie of the Year balloting, Andujar found playing time hard to come by with the Yankees over the subsequent four seasons and slashed an underwhelming .228/.255/.318 across 376 plate appearances in the majors during that stretch. The Pirates are expected to give Andujar a look as a regular in the lineup over the final week and a half of the season with the hope that the change of scenery reinvigorates the 27-year-old.

  • Yankees' Miguel Andujar: Sent down Wednesday

    Andujar was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Wednesday.

Luis Severino (lat) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list ahead of Wednesday's start against the Yankees, while the Yankees got a reinforcement in the outfield Tuesday when Harrison Bader was activated.

  • Yankees' Miguel Andujar: Swats first homer of season

    Andujar went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run and a walk in Thursday's loss to Minnesota.

    Andujar spent the past couple days on and off the active roster, getting called up as the 29th man for Wednesday's doubleheader, subsequently being sent back down and being recalled Thursday after DJ LeMahieu (toe) was placed on the injured list. He slotted in as New York's DH and batted sixth in the order Thursday, and he gave the Yankees an early lead with his two-run blast in the second inning. The homer was his first in 21 games this season and just his eighth in 99 contests since he went deep 27 times in 149 games during his rookie 2018 campaign.

  • Yankees' Miguel Andujar: Back in majors

    Andujar was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Thursday.

    After being optioned to Triple-A on Wednesday, Andujar now finds himself back in New York as DJ LeMahieu (toe) heads to the 10-day injured list. The 27-year-old Andujar holds a .497 OPS on the year over 74 plate appearances and will likely return to the minors once LeMahieu recovers.

  • Yankees' Miguel Andujar: Sent back to Triple-A

  • Yankees' Miguel Andujar: Called up as 29th man

    Andujar was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to serve as the 29th man during Wednesday's doubleheader against Minnesota, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

    Andujar has spent the last few weeks in the minors but will join the big-league club for Wednesday's twin bill. He's starting in left field and batting fifth during the matinee, according to Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record. Over 19 major-league games this year, Andujar has hit .239 with two doubles, seven runs, five RBI and four stolen bases.

  • Yankees' Miguel Andujar: Returns to minors

    The Yankees optioned Andujar to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Wednesday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

    Even while Aaron Hicks continues to struggle mightily at the plate and with Giancarlo Stanton (Achilles), Matt Carpenter (foot) and Harrison Bader (foot) all stuck on the injured list, Andujar wasn't able to gain any traction as a regular in the outfield or at designated hitter during his week-long stay in the big leagues. He'll head back to Triple-A after going 4-for-18 with eight strikeouts in five games during his abbreviated stint with the Yankees.

  • Yankees' Miguel Andujar: Base knock Sunday

    Andujar went 1-for-3 with one steal in Sunday's loss against the Red Sox.

    Since being called up from Triple-A on Aug. 9, Andujar has hit safely in all three games that he has started. Despite that, he sat out the last two contests, but manager Aaron Boone slotted him in the six hole Sunday night, a signal that he may be able to earn more playing time. Carrying a 119 wRC+ and going 5-for-5 in stolen base attempts over 64 games at Triple-A this season, Andujar has a shot to provide significant value for the Yankees as long as key contributors such as Giancarlo Stanton, Matt Carpenter and Harrison Bader remain sidelined.
