Up Severino for wild card
Scranton. The organization’s No. 6-ranked prospect according to mlb.com, Andujar batted .315 with 16 homers and 82 RBI between the AP two levels this season.
On June 28, Andujar appeared in one game for the Yanks and went 3-for-4 with a walk and four RBI in his major-league debut — a 12-3 road win over the White Sox — before he was sent back to the minors.
“Obviously, I think it’s important that we get our eyes on him and get a chance to work with him. But I have a lot of confidence in the young man,” Girardi said, adding there was some temptation to keep up earlier this season. “The thing is we want him finished off. We don’t want him to be necessarily a guy who plays two or three times a week. We wanted him to finish his development off and be an everyday player.”
