Yankees third baseman Miguel Andújar will undergo season-ending labrum repair surgery in his right shoulder, the team announced on Wednesday. The surgery will be performed by Dr. Christopher Ahmad at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital.
Andújar, 24, played in just 12 games this season, registering six hits (all singles) and one RBI in 49 plate appearances. He apparently suffered the shoulder injury diving back into first base on March 31.
Giovany Urshela has handled third base in Andújar’s absence and will continue to do so. Urshela has done an admirable job, batting .341/.396/.505 with a pair of homers and 15 RBI in 101 trips to the plate.
