2019-02-05 17:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think Miguel Andujar has to do to secure the 3rd base job w/ the Yankees? Fly? Bend steel bars w/ his bare hands? I've heard criticisms of his defense, but he had far fewer errors than Torres did as a rookie, and I don't hear people suggesting Torres can't hold down 2nd or short. Do you see a move to 1st base or DH in his near future? Sorry, I love this kid and it just seems he isn't getting much respect coming off what should have been a Rookie of the Year first season.
(Bob from Dreamland)
I think (hope?) that Andujar has already secured the 3rd base job. They may do some tough talkin' about how he has to shore up his defense, which really isn't very good (-15 FRAA), but regardless of how poorly he fields, he's an excellent player and benching him or moving him to DH would be a bad idea (in my personal opinion). This is the kind of spin/young player-bashing that veterans and coaches do regularly, regardless of how talented the player in question is. But I think the job is his to lose, and the only way he could really lose it is by hitting badly or, like, making an error every other play. (Rob Arthur)
2017-09-18 23:00:00 (link to chat)Your thoughts on Ryan McMahon and what happens when his BABIP isn't .416? Also, is Miguel Andujar being overlooked? Hits the ball hard and seems like his HRs could increase; your thoughts on Andujar?
(Cole Whittier from Pasadena, CA)
Honestly, he's a guy where I still feel pretty good about my eval from a couple years ago, at least on the offensive side. He went through some growing pains in his first go at AA, where he got out of his natural swing and got into his head as the season wore on. But I feel like this season was a good one for him, because it (hopefully) taught him that he doesn't need to sell out for power to get to a decent amount of it. The swing's pretty when he stays within his mechanics, and I expect a solid hitter with solid power (along with the newfound defensive versatility).

Far as Andujar goes, not sure about him getting "overlooked" - he sat 5th on our initial cut at the Yankees list last week, and that's not exactly a thin system, yunno? But he remains a higher-variance prospect. Definitely has power courtesy of insane wrist strength, *definitely* has the arm for third, had a very good season into AAA at 22. There's still a bunch of projection in his profile, and the likelihood of a transition period between the high minors and majors, but there's a potentially above-average regular at third if everything breaks right. (Wilson Karaman)
2016-07-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Miguel Andujar, next All Star third baseman for the New York Yankees?
(JM from CT)
Well, I can't look that far ahead, but he's an excellent 3-4 hole hitter. At the High-A level anyway. (Jessica Quiroli)
2016-06-20 16:00:00 (link to chat)Is Migue Andujar turning into a name we should keep an eye out for? Or was his start this year due to him just repeating the level?
(Bob from Northern Hemisphere )
Miguel Andujar I also wrote up!

Long story short he does have intriguing tools including a plus arm, plus run, and potential plus raw. He still has some volatility given his age and that he hasn't been tested against upper level competition yet. (Steve Givarz)
2016-01-21 19:00:00 (link to chat)How much credit do we give a guy like Miguel Andujar for putting up league average numbers in hi-A, but at a young age?
(Al from New York, New York)
I don't know much about Andujar, but one of our prospect team writers told me "he has good raw power, but enough trouble making it functional that he's not really relevant outside of 20-team leagues right now." So...yep... (George Bissell)
2015-07-16 20:00:00 (link to chat)Hey George. I know these prospects are very far away and may never make it but what would your order be of Travis Demeritte, Jhoan Urena, Miguel Andujar, and Victor Robles for a Dynasty League? Any thoughts on them?
(kiper90 from Rochester, NY)
Victor Robles is getting a ton of love lately and for good reason. Our prospect staff loves him. He's still light years away at just 18 but he's a plus, plus runner with above average pop...He's a definite sleeper...If Demeritte ever figures out the strikeout problems which have plagued him, there's a ton of power there at 2B to like. (George Bissell)
2014-03-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)better third base prospect. Jhoan Urena or Miguel Andujar?
(Mike from Miami)
Haven't seen Andujar in person yet and with the really young guys I like to see them for myself. I do really like Urena, though. Will make a point to see Andujar in the GCL this summer. (Jeff Moore)
