Pirates Takeaways: Andújar Shows Upside As Bucs’ Latest Waiver Claim (+)



Pittsburgh Pirates, Miguel Andujar

PITTSBURGH — Just four seasons ago, Miguel Andújar finished second in the American League Rookie of the Year race as a member of the New York Yankees.

The now 27-year-old was beat out by Los Angeles Angels’ star Shohei Ohtani for the award.

After that season, Andújar battled injuries and other adversities and only played in a combined 105 games with the Yankees from 2019 through this year.

The Yankees designated Andújar for assignment earlier in the month, and the Pittsburgh Pirates pounced on the opportunity to add his services.

In two games with the Pirates, Andújar is already making an impact with his new team.
