The New York Yankees are starting to move their pieces looking forward the next season.The Yanks have one of the best young infields in the whole Majors, with Brandon Drury, Gleyber Torres, and Miguel Andujar.
Prior to today’s game, the Yankees made the following roster moves:— New York Yankees (@Yankees) 18 de marzo de 2018
• Optioned INF Miguel Andújar to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
• Reassigned OF Estevan Florial to minor league camp.
It seems that Drury has established himself as the starting third baseman for the next campaign, but we cannot say the same of Gleyber Torres, who was sent to the minors after New York acquired Neil Walker for the second baseman spot.
Now, the Yankees' no.4 prospect according to MLB Pipeline, Miguel Andujar, was sent too to the minor leagues, as the Bronx Bombarders informed through their Twitter account. However, it is expected that the Dominican will be back to the Majors sooner or later.
The Yankees announce that 3B Miguel Andújar and RHP Domingo Acevedo were named winners of the 2017 Kevin Lawn Award as the Yankees’ minor league “Player of the Year” and “Pitcher of the Year” today.— Yankees PR Dept. (@YankeesPR) 18 de marzo de 2018
During Spring Training, Andujar did not have an impressive performance, as he just hit an average of .178. Along with Andujar, the Yankees have also sent another prospect, Estevan Florial to the minors
