    2018 Miguel And˙jar Performance Thread

    Our boy Miguel is up, McKinney onto the DL. I'm guessing he'll get some time at DH and maybe some at 3B, hope he crushes.

    I believe that's the Ground Crew's job.

    What does anyone have to say about his first couple of games?

    Needs more of an uppercut swing to get some lift on his batted balls. He seems to hit alot of sharp grounders at people.

    Re: 2018 Miguel And˙jar Performance Thread

    With Miggy's lack of production so far I'm in favor of sending him down at least enough to get the extra year of team control and in the meantime give Toe more reps.

    I'm not worry about him. He still hits the ball hard. Just a bit unlucky so far.

    Glad to see him get a couple of extra-base hits tonight. Hopefully he can keep it up.

    Re: 2018 Miguel And˙jar Performance Thread

    My first impressions of his ability to play 3rd base:

    Strong arm
    Not much range
    Seems erratic - not steady

    I hope I'm wrong because I think he'll be a productive hitter - but if he can't stick @ 3rd, there may not be a spot for him.

    I think the Yanks were planning on giving Andujar some playing time @ 1B. But in the long run if Bird isn't the first baseman then IMO Stanton should learn to play 1B this offseason, because Aaron Judge is going to be a great RFer & I don't think Stanton is a LFer.

    Maybe the plan should be to see if Drury comes back anytime soon & how Gleyber Torres produces in the coming months before deciding who's expendable in July. Perhaps Andujar's greatest value will be as a headliner in a trade package to obtain a frontline starter.

    WOW. Torres may be here end of next week and I don't want to trade either. Just the opposite. I am bias because I like him but. We just disagree.

    Strong arm - agree
    Range is fine - got a glove on the screamer going doing the line yesterday and had plays when Didi moved over in the shift
    Not Erratic - I only seen 1 throwing error
    Ball screams off his bat - agree with KenT
    Got a double and triple yesterday - hopefully getting out of rookie start
    More upside than Drury - ME

    I always felt Torres at 2nd and Andrujar at 3rd. I loved Todd and very happy for him but I really like this guy and have not problem waiting. Backing up 1st is because we need depth there because Austin has stepped up against RHP.

    Our boy is heating up just in time, Mike Axisa points out how good almost every AB the last two games has been:

    ôHis last eight plate appearances: double, ground out, triple, long fly out, seven-pitch walk, double, double, long fly out.ö

    This is Miggy's time to show them he can do the job at 3rd. If so then that only strengthen's Cashman's hand as he can now have Torres concentrate on 2nd. After that, a decision will have to be made on those other infield assets like Drury and Wade.

    Re: 2018 Miguel And˙jar Performance Thread

    He's still a little too aggressive for his own good as he kept swinging at ball four in his first at-bat. Anyway, he's really good and will only get better with more reps in the majors.

    but he is not striking out. (some bad luck)

    Drury 6 SO for 23 AB
    Andujar 6 SO for 36 AB

    (agree with others) I just hope they put Torres at 2nd put Wade in SWB and move Andrujar to SWB when Drury is ready; but I doubt that will happen.

    His ability to barrel the baseball is uncanny. So good that he probably thinks he can hit anything. Being more selective is a skill that can be acquired. More experience and at-bats will do him good. And when pitchers are hesitant to throw him strikes, the walks will increase.
