4. Miguel Andújar
The Yankees seem to want to get a better look at Miguel Andújar, whether it’s to fit him in their long-term plans or use him as trade bait ahead of the deadline.
He’s seen a ton of action since the series against the Nationals, but he’s mostly played the outfield (eight games). He has one game under his belt at first base (this year and for his career), but it seems like Andújar (and Ford) will still be used on a part-time basis and slotted into action when guys need days off or Boone wants to shift around the infield/lineup.
Miggy’s presence at first will also depend on how Clint Frazier fares in the coming weeks. If he doesn’t rebound, you can bet Andújar will continue to get reps in the outfield, with first base will be a bit of an afterthought for him.
The Yankees have been playing fairly tight defense, which has really helped them right the ship. Playing an inexperienced Andújar at first on a consistent basis just might not be the answer, but he will probably be part of some sort of equation.
