Miguel Andujar (Bryan Green)


Top Third Base Prospect Miguel Andujar Promoted To Double-A Trenton

Tuesday morning Pinstriped Prospects received multiple sources confirming the promotion of Miguel Andujar to Double-A Trenton. The 21 year-old has been in Advanced-A Tampa for almost two whole seasons now showing his power and promise as the top-rated third baseman in the New York Yankees’ farm system.

In 2015 Andujar was second on the Tampa Yankees in RBIs and home-runs and first in total bases. This season he leads the team (and FSL) with 41 RBIs, he leads the team and is second in the FSL with 10 home-runs, and his 109 total bases up to this point is first on the team and second in the FSL. Andujar has also made significant strides in his defense having just seven errors on the season to this point improving his fielding percentage from .908 in 2015 to .947 in 2016.

Andujar’s success has been somewhat overshadowed this season by some other headlines for the Tampa Yankees. Though his consistency over the last two seasons and improvements this season could’ve been headlines on their own. Miguel’s promotion is well deserved as the main improvement the organization needed from him was better defense. Now that they’re getting that, the Yankees’ top third base prospect is set to join Trenton today and take the next step in his career.

There is no word on the corresponding move for Andujar’s call-up yet, but it could very well be promoting another infielder from Charleston’s strong team. Thairo Estrada has helped the Yankees greatly since Fleming’s promotion and you could make the argument that Trenton and Charleston have the strongest teams in the Yankees’ whole farm system right now.
