Miguel Andujar facing season-ending surgery on shoulder

Monday evening before the New York Yankees took on the Detroit Tigers, it was announced that Miguel Andujar will now be on the injured list along with Giancarlo Stanton and many others. Says he is optimistic about the potential outcome of the physical therapy and rehab because of that.

Andújar has a small labrum tear in his right shoulder, Boone said after. It seems the likely process will be to establish range of motion in the joint and then begin strengthening.

While the team has to compete in a tough American League East, it helps that most of the American League is rebuilding.

The injury occurred in the Yankees series finale vs. Baltimore when Andujar dove back into third on a pickoff play. The Yankees reportedly discussed a three-way trade with the Miami Marlins and New York Mets that would've sent Noah Syndergaard to the Bronx.

Stanton hit.266 with 38 home runs, 100 RBIs and an.852 OPS in 158 games last season, his first with the Yankees. The result of Monday was the only good news of the day. Stanton, Andújar, Sabathia, Aaron Hicks, Luis Severino and Dellin Betances make up six of the 10 and were all expected to start the season with the club. Baseball-Reference credited the third baseman with a 2.2 WAR.

Stanton shouldn't be out too long, but Yankees fans hope that Frazier will show what everyone glimpsed during his last lengthy stint in the big leagues. After that it was left fielder Mike Tauchman, designated hitter Clint Frazier, second baseman Tyler Wade and catcher Austin Romine. He recorded three hits and an RBI in those plate appearances. "We expect to be really good, and we feel very confident in the guys we have right now on the roster despite some of our injuries".
