    That would be an interesting add he had offensive break out this year. I thought the As just added him to their 40 man, did he get MiLB FA?

    His bat has steadily improved. Had a great year last year though PCL batting stats should be taken with a grain of salt.

    If Giambi who was a rock at 1b could field it fine for almost 10 years at yankee stadium, I donít see why Andķjar wonít at least be adequate there.

    I cannot find one either, but I did find one about him being added to the A’s 40.

    Found this one, too though not Yankee related.

    Maybe a mis-print? This is from MiLB transactions BA latest postings

    Itís probably correct. I think he had the ability to elect FA, maybe he wanted to go somewhere where his path to bigs was easier this year. If itís true Iím sure it will be on Yankees site in a day or two but I have no reason to doubt your source.

    I think itís a misprint as Heim was added to the Aís 40 man roster that week.

    I believe that's what happened here. Not listed in MLB transactions.

    I always thought Giambi was a liability at 1B, but agree Andujar would likely be adequate. Assuming heís not flipped for SP, itís likely LF or 1B, whatever heís better at, plus DH. 1B makes more sense to me as we have a glut in LF w Stanton, Tauchman and others, whereas 1B itís just Voit. Plus itís likely an easier adjustment to 1B s LF.

    Jason Giambi was a rock at 1B? This is the disconnect. I just don't think people realize how bad Giambi's defense was there. Again, 1B defense pales in importance to many other positions, but that doesn't mean its irrelevant. If Andujar could hit like Giambi, you tolerate that defense all day long. But I don't envision him putting up any 193 wRC+ seasons in the immediate future.

    I'd love to be proven wrong, and Andujar comes out in '20 raking and we forget all about Voit and Ford, but I'd bet against it even though I really like Andujar.

    I would have to feel it’s a depth move. Higgy is out of options, so who is next up?

    Higgy’s presence isn’t tied to Romine’s status - if Romine signs, Higgy is likely gone.

    EDIT: the report may be in error, but I think the logic regarding Higgy/Romine remains.
    Forgive me for taking the Contrarian view

    He meant rock as an immovable object/horrible fielder. Everyone knows Giambi sucked in the field, it was his bat that everyone loved. Andujar will NEVER hit as well as Giambi.

    Iím not confident Andķjar will field as well as Giambi, either.

    Good point. Ford was clutch down the stretch. Shame he didnít get a spot on the postseason roster. I donít see him as starting 1B, but maybe thereís a slot for him.

    I question whether he will ever be the hitter he was 2 years ago after this surgery.

    And yet he was the Yankees best defensive 1Bman by a wide margin which speaks volumes about the defense of their other 1Bman.

    And, I don't agree with that narrative that he struggled at 1st base. Did he make a few mistakes there? Yes, but, that doesn't mean he struggled there.

    Yes, true. I wasn't criticizing DJL. I was using him as an example of a guy that has ELITE defensive ability at other infield positions, freakishly good, yet couldn't just "plug and play" at first. Andujar is freakishly bad at the sole infield position he's been asked to man his entire mL and ML career. Not sure why everyone assumes the attributes that hurt him at 3B will transform at the opposite corner. At least with DJL as a 2B the ball comes off the bat similarly there as it would at first. With Andujar the opposite is true.

    I'm not launching a "narrative." I'm one dude on this forum using a verb about a player that some folks are being too sensitive about and taking way too literally. His range wasn't good, he made a few unforced errors in a pretty small sample. Am I saying he sucked, or that he couldn't master the position? No. I'm saying it wasn't a plug and play transition regardless of his defensive prowess at 2B and 3B. I wasn't implying he was BadNewsBearish out there at all. Do you disagree with the point, or just the verb?

    Ex-Yankee Mason Williams is a mL FA and might be a good depth signing considering the Yankee CF situation. Good contact hitter, another lefty bat, pretty good OFer. Stash him in Scranton until the injuries begin to mount.
