The Dominican lost his place on the New York payroll and was sent to Scranton, Pennsylvania.
New York Yankees had to cut two of his players by obligation of the Big leagues and expanded it to three, with the decision that sent the Dominican Miguel Andújar to Scranton.
Despite being on the roster since Opening Day, Andújar lost the fight to Colombian Gio Urshela for a place at third base. In his five games played he only hit one imparate and a batting average of .071.
Now Andújar will have to wait for some loss due to injury or suspension to regain a place on the Yankees’ roster in the tight 2020 MLB schedule.
The other cuts were infielder Thairo Estrada and relief pitcher Nick Nelson. To get to the 28-player roster, New Yorkers would go up to Cuban closer Aaroldis Chapman.
