Miguel Andujar is reportedly on his way back to the big leagues.
According to ESPN’s Marly Rivera, the former Rookie of the Year candidate will be called up by the Yankees to replace the injured Matt Carpenter, who suffered a foot fracture after fouling a ball off his foot during Monday night’s win over the Mariners.
Andujar has been up and down between the majors and Triple-A this season, much like the rest of his Yankee tenure since suffering a season-ending injury early in the 2019 season. in 49 big-league at-bats this season, Andujar is batting .245 with a .555 OPS, and has an .835 OPS at Triple-A.
Andujar reportedly asked Aaron Boone to be traded after he was sent down earlier this season, but he was not moved by the trade deadline last week.
